Choosing your wedding cake is not an easy decision! There are so many different things to think about that you could spend hours in the bakery discussing designs, colors, flavors and more. Of course, you want everything to be perfect, so it’s a labor of love. There are some really great tips for choosing the perfect wedding and they will help you save time as well. Simply decide on the following things before you head for the bakery and you will be more prepared and ready to make a decision.
Does your cake need to fit a certain theme? For instance, are you having a tropical or Hawaiian themed wedding? If you need to fit your wedding cake into a theme, you may not have to make as many decisions as you thought. One example of a great tropical or Hawaiian themed wedding cake is to have tropical edible flowers, a citrus flavor such as key lime or pineapple and to use soft, tropical colors like pastel green or peach. This is one way to certainly narrow down your wedding cake choices and may save you a ton of time.
How many guests are you serving? Would it be more practical to have a small wedding cake and matching, small table top cakes? Or, do you want to get one huge cake to serve your guests from? By deciding this, you will already know what size cake you want to order, so this will save time as well. The small table top cakes are great if you’re finding it hard to make up your mind as far as one color or design. If you get smaller ones which accent the large one, you can do more in the way of decoration.

If you are a traditional person, you can opt for the traditional and beautiful white wedding cake.
