baking911.com defines "traditional" as follows, "The traditional wedding cake is a three- tiered vanilla confection with white icing, a miniature bride and bridegroom on top and lots of buttercream roses."

So basically white on white decoration. Most importantly it would be a good idea to ask the competition sponsor / director for their written definition of "traditional." Make sure their version of "traditional" gives you a precise answer for decoration (only white buttercream or fondant) and type of cake (ex. white vanilla cake or free-choice of cake and filling). They may be more loose in definition to allow for creativity is my guess.

Make sure to look over the rules carefully. If this is a non-tasting competition they may still have certain rules about non-edible things allowed on the cakes (ex. no cold porcelain or visible wires, etc.).
