How to Decide on Your Wedding Cake

Your wedding should be one of the most memorable days in your life. Before you even start planning the wedding there are many details you need to see too. The first thing you and your finance need to discuss is how much you are willing to spend on the whole wedding. Many couples try to make the perfect day by supplementing their wedding with credit cards. This can actually add a lot of stress to the day, and in the end disappoint you. It is more important for you to pick a style of wedding that will fit in your budget, without going so far into debt that you start off with a bad financial outlook. Having said that let’s talk about just the cake portion of your wedding.

Part of getting your wedding prepared is the reception and of course the main centerpiece the cake. The cake can be any type from a simple style to the most elaborate. Again when asking how much to spend on your wedding cake that will be up to you. Most wedding cake designers offer a cake around 400 pounds and up. The more decorative you get with the cake the more it will cost. If you decide to have each layer in the cake be a different filling the cost will also increase. It is easier for the wedding cake designer to make one type of filling over four.

The design of the cake will also make a difference. If the cake needs special cake and more time to create you are going to pay a little more for it. The easiest cakes are the square or round cakes. They can be done in a regular cake pan and then the decorations can be added. Something more elaborate like a tower cake or the Castle of Edinburgh is going to require more time.

Your cake should have a particular meaning to you. This means you should choose the type of cake and the design based on the theme of your special day or a special meaning to you and your fiance.

Only you can know how much you want to spend on the cake. Remember that there are some ways to spend a little less if you have a restrictive budget.  For other pointers in how much to spend on your wedding cake you should look at how many individuals would be attending. This will help you decide if you need the larger cake or the smaller cake. You can add or drop layers to most designs based on the amount of individuals you need to serve. It is your happy day so don’t let too many things influence your decisions.
