We all know how expensive it can be to plan a wedding.
That’s why so many soon-to-be brides are constantly searching for new ways to cut costs without it looking like they cut costs. Though you aren’t going to want to skimp when it comes to big things, like the venue, photography, music and dinner, you can certainly find creative ways to save when it comes to the wedding cake.
If you really think about it, there are probably plenty of instances where you’ve been to a wedding and have hardly seen anyone actually eating the wedding cake. While some people are just too stuffed from dinner to move onto dessert, others just aren’t really into sweets. Whatever the case, you don’t have to break the bank on a five tier cake just because your guest list breaches 200 loved ones.
We’ve seen so many weddings in recent years where the bride and groom have opted for a smaller cake and have filled in the blanks with other dessert options.
Not only are smaller confectionary treats, like cupcakes, cake pops, pies and cheesecakes much cheaper than an extravagant cake, but it gives your guests options. Not everyone is a cake person, but they may love pie. They’ll love the variety you provide so much, they won’t even think twice about the smaller cake.
Plus who says your dessert table can’t be just as extravagant as that big cake you could have had?
