How To Cut Wedding Cake Costs Without Sacrificing Style
Wedding planning is a big balance between having the beautiful day of your dreams while also sticking to your budget. It’s difficult! Luckily, your wedding cake is one area where you can easily achieve your aesthetic while making sure you have enough dessert for everyone and stick to your budget.
Here are a few ideas to help you cut your wedding cake costs without giving up your dream of a beautiful cake.
ORDER MULTIPLE CAKES
No, we don’t mean order multiple wedding cakes.
Order your main cake, but don’t worry about serving all of your guests from that cake. Choose a cake that fits your style and budget, then order additional undecorated sheet cake to cut and serve to your guests. Your guests won’t know the difference, and they’ll still get cake.
Did you know that cake cutting is an additional fee you’ll have to pay the day of your wedding? Typically your caterer will cut the cake for you, but they will charge you. You can avoid that fee by ordering cupcakes.
You can choose cupcakes for your entire cake, or you can order a cake for the happy couple to cut at the reception and then order cupcakes for everyone else. Depending on how you’d like them decorated, this is usually much cheaper than ordering a full cake. You can also easily order multiple different flavors this way too!
Who says you have to have cake at your wedding? This is your party! Do what you want to! Serve whatever dessert you want. Cake pops, pie, yogurt parfaits, brownies, doughnuts, pudding, cookies, ice cream, s’mores, Rice Krispie treats, whoopie pies… the list goes on! You can do these in addition to a cake or instead of a cake entirely.
SERVE 75% OF YOUR GUESTS
Don’t think you have to have dessert for all of your guests. Not everyone will want it. They may not be a fan of sweets or they may simply be too busy dancing. If you provide enough dessert for 75 percent of your guests, you should have enough to cover dessert for everyone.
Ultimately, what you do for cake or dessert at your wedding is up to you. Remember that this special day is all about you and your spouse-to-be, and enjoy it!
