How can I save money on the wedding cake?

Cut Costs with Your Wedding Cake

You can expect that your cost for a wedding cake will start around $3.00 per slice on traditional cakes. Depending on how many guests you are expecting (the average wedding is usually 200 guests), cost for the wedding cake will be about $600 to $1,000.

There are ways that you can cut your wedding cake costs. While many wedding cakes are works of art in their own right, the cake itself is part of the ritual feeding that the bride and groom do during the wedding reception. The cake is then cut and served to the guests as a ritual sharing of the couple's future bounty. But to save costs on wedding cakes can provide couples with more options in their wedding planning especially if they are not in love with the idea of the awe inspiring work of art. Here are some suggestions:

  • Order a smaller cake for the art and have a similar cake made sheet style for serving to the guests
  • Create mini wedding cakes cupcake style, you can even create a unique tower of wedding cupcakes that can be quite exquisite
  • Order a smaller cake for the wedding party and offer a dessert bar with pastries and more so guests have other options than the wedding cake
