Budget Wedding Tips: Saving Money on Your Wedding Cake

Posted by Azure on January 13th, 2010
Looking for a delicious way to save a little money? Alissa Levine of Pastry Girl Cakes was recently kind enough to share these money saving ideas for your wedding cake.

FAKE IT


Get a smaller tiered cake (or dummy cake) for the reception and ask your baker to make sheet cakes that your caterer can cut and serve to guests



KEEP IT SIMPLE


Cakes from magazines are usually very expensive because they are so ornate. The less decoration on your cake, the less the cake will cost.



ALTERNATIVE DESSERTS


Get a cupcake tower, or sweets table with a smaller cake for the cake cutting.



REAL FLOWERS


Decorate your cake with real flowers instead of sugar flowers - some florists will throw in free decorative cake flowers as part of your package.

FAMILY HEIRLOOMS


Ask your baker to include a sparkly heirloom like a brooch onto the cake that won't cost as much as time consuming sugar decorations. Helpful Links Wedding Cakes Cupcake Ideas Budget Wedding Ideas Find the Perfect Bakery
