Saving Money on Your Wedding Cake

Posted on July 1st, 2008 by Kori Ellis in Wedding Cakes No Comments

The wedding cake is oftentimes the centerpiece at the wedding reception. Wedding cakes come in all flavors and sizes. They are also a great way to express your originality. However the cost of a wedding cake can become very large, particularly if you have a lot of wedding guests.

Wedding Cake

Here are some great ways to save money on your wedding cake:

Order you cake early. Many bakers charge extra if you order your cake within two weeks of your wedding. Try to order as soon as possible.

Buy your own flowers, cake decorations, dividers and cake toppers rather than purchasing or renting them from the bakery.

Skip the elaborate fillings. Jellies, fruits and other fillings add to the cost of the cake. Stick with a basic cream filling instead.

Have a friend or relative pick up your cake instead of having it delivered.

Use upside down glasses as your cake dividers. They serve the purpose and you can use them later. You can also skip the dividers all together.

Have the baker make a smaller cake and then also serve cupcakes to your guests. Cupcakes are very affordable at your local grocer’s bakery or you can make them at home.

Ask a friend or family member to make your wedding cake. Almost every family has one expert baker. Ask this person to make your wedding cake in lieu of buying you a wedding gift. You can purchase the ingredients yourself.
