Wedding Wednesday: One more vendor
From the very beginning of our wedding planning, Marc has been asking about cake. I've been avoiding the dessert decision from the beginning because there are so many wonderful bakers in this town. Between us, we know quite a few people who make cakes, cupcakes, and all sorts of sweet treats. It doesn't help that I've been a cupcake fiend since long before cupcakes because fashionable.
On top of the selection of a baker, we have to figure out if we want to go the traditional route (cake for all) or do something a little more contemporary. These days, dessert tables, candy buffets, cupcakes, and cake pops have become pretty common.
I haven't really had any "decision fatigue" during this process, but I'm stumped on this one. While I love the look of a traditional cake, I realize that many people don't even bother eating wedding cake. Having a little variety might increase the chance of pleasing more people...but it will require more planning and coordination on my part. I'm also almost positive providing a selection will mean we'll have to reallocate our budget a bit.
This is something about which I am truly undecided. I don't know what to do!
Your opinions and experiences would be greatly appreciated!
