Asking your wedding cake designer these questions will result in a great outcome

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.

Your Wedding “Thank You” Notes Should Be Written to Perfection

So many guests, friends and family alike, have gathered from near and far to celebrate your big day with you! You have all enjoyed a great meal, delicious cake and then you jetted off onto your honeymoon. After returning, you have unpacked your suitcases, and opened all of your lovely gifts, so now it is time to sit down and write the perfect “thank you” notes.  

Does a "Day-Of Coordinator" only show up on the wedding day?

"I've done all my own planning and want a "day-of" coordinator but can't find one who will show up on the wedding day only !  Why?" There's probably a lot of confusion amongst engaged couples because of the term "day-of" coordinator. If you end up speaking to someone who says they will only show up on the wedding day and save you lots of money because of it, please stay clear of them! Many wedding planners may label their coordination as "day-of" wedding coordination, but there is far more involved than just showing up on the wedding day when it comes to a professional wedding planner who knows what she/he is doing.

Answers to Brides Most Frequently Asked Questions

Here we are....Day 6, our final day of answering your most frequently asked questions here are answers to questions 9 and 10! Question 9: When Do We Mail the Invitations.    Traditionally speaking, wedding invitations should be mailed out 6-8 weeks before the wedding. If you get anxious and mail them 10-12 weeks prior to the wedding, you might be taking a chance with your guests seeing they have plenty of time to respond and put the invitation down with intentions of RSVPing later and then they forget. Only with destination weddings should you mail your invitations 3 months out. Make sure your RSVP date is one month prior to the wedding, allowing you time to call folks who haven't rsvp'd. Part 2: Do We Need to Note the Dress Code on the Invitations?  In many cases your invitation style will depict to your guests how formal your ceremony will be. A beach wedding invitation is going to have a much different style than a more formal, traditional invitation. However, if y
