Choosing Your Wedding Cake

A wedding cake is usually one of the highlights of the wedding and this means that one needs to be very careful when choosing one. It is a symbol of good fortune and fertility, and not to mention that it is believed to bring good luck to those who eat it. In this article, we are going to take a look at some things to consider when choosing your wedding cake.

Choosing Your Wedding Cake

Make Wedding Design Decisions First

There are many elements which will define your wedding as you aim to create your story, and they are actually the foundation of this story being created. Such elements include the styling, the flowers, and the theme among other things. Before choosing your wedding cake, you need to first identify what all of these elements are.

The Flavor Should Not Be What Others Want

It is your wedding and not theirs, and this means that it is you and your spouse who should choose the flavors, textures, and smells. These are some of the things that are contributing to your story and not the other people’s stories.

The Height Should Match the Space

Remember that creating a cake is an art and not just something else to eat during the wedding. It should therefore be in tango with the size of the room where the wedding will be held. This should be considered when designing the cake.

What is the Budget?

The cost of the cake is determined by the number of people you are expecting at the ceremony, and also by the design you want. These are the things that will guide you when figuring out your budget. Remember that a lot of work goes into the designing of the wedding cake.

What Sort of Dressing Do You Want?

Thinking beyond the design, some of the other elements to consider include things like the cake stands, the flowers, and even the linen to be used. A good designer will advise you on this.

Let it Shine

Let the cake steal the spotlight by choosing the best position to make it stand out and shine. The event organizer should be able to help with this.

The bottom line, go with whatever works best for you.
