Your wedding cake is one of the most important (and delicious) elements of your big day, so you definitely want it to be created to exceed all of your expectations. From the flavor to the look, many factors go into the outcome of the perfect wedding cake, but in order to make these decisions, you must first meet with your wedding cake designer.
Preparing for your wedding cake consultation should be fun and exciting, but you will surely be curious as to what questions you should ask for the creation of your wedding cake. Communication is certainly key when it comes to making decisions, especially those associated with your big day. That is why I Thee Wed has gathered some top questions that you should ask your wedding cake designer, so be sure to continue reading to gain some assistance:
• The team. Bakeries usually work on wedding cakes in teams, so it is important that you will be meeting with the people who will actually be baking and designing your cake. Ask your bakery who will be your team for your big day, and ensure that everyone sees your vision entirely as you provide the information about how you would like the outcome of your cake to be. Most importantly, make sure you are secure with all of your choices, this is your cake and it should be exactly as you imagined it.
• Technicalities. The details of your contract are so important when it comes to your wedding cake. You will want to first make sure your wedding date is available for the bakery to create your cake and you will want to figure out the transportation; will they be delivering and setting up your cake? Or is this something that you will be handling? These questions are all important as they fit into the planning of your wedding day.
• Pricing. Most importantly, you will want to know how much you will be paying for your wedding cake. Bakeries usually charge by the slice, so knowing the approximate number of guests you will be having will allow you to calculate how much cake you will need. Also, be sure you are aware of all costs associated with your cake, such as additional fees and delivery costs.
As you plan your wedding cake and your overall wedding, you will want to ensure that everything is flawless. From your walk down the aisle to your grand exit, each and every moment is important, which is why I Thee Wed strives to provide a professionally fun wedding planning experience, so that your big day turns out just as you imagined it would.
