We're hungry girls at Here Comes The Guide and one of our very favorite treats is wedding cake! There are so many choices and decisions to make—bridal shower cakes, groom's cakes, cupcakes, wedding cake toppers—it can get overwhelming.
The main point of any wedding is for you and your partner to get married, right? But beyond that, it may also be the biggest party you'll ever throw! And when we think of the word “party,” we think FUN.
Traditional rehearsal dinner etiquette dictates that the groom’s parents foot the bill because it’s the way for the groom’s mother to show that she knows how to entertain, too. But as more and more couples choose to pay for their own wedding or share the expenses between both families, the bottom line is you get to decide who shoulders the awesome pre-wedding party responsibility.
Next to your dress, the cake is probably a wedding’s most important icon. And whether you want a traditional multi-tiered confection, a miniature Statue of Liberty (hey, that’s where he proposed!) or a cupcake tower, your wedding cake should reflect your personality. Be sure to use the following questions as a guide when evaluating a potential wedding cake designer.
