Do you like classic and elegant, contemporary and quirky, rustic and natural, fresh flowers or sugar flowers? These questions will help narrow down your choice of wedding cake designer as although we all start with the same ingredients that’s where the similarities end.
Tip #1 - Your Style
Firstly, choose a designer who specialises in the style of cake you want. Just as you choose your venue and photographer for their particular style, it’s the same with wedding cake designers. We don’t all offer the same and that’s great for you as by choosing someone who specialises in the style you like you know you’ll be in expert hands.
Tip #2 - Your Budget
Secondly, decide how much of your wedding budget to set aside for your wedding cake. Do you want a real showstopper, an elegant centrepiece, or is your wedding cake less important to you?
Wedding cakes are priced according to the time and skill involved in creating them so a unique wedding cake created just for you with sugar flower posies will take much more time to make than a semi-naked cake with fresh flowers. Set aside an amount that enables you to have the style of wedding cake you want.
Tip #3 - Get To Know Them
Finally, narrow down a few cake designers to check their availability. Look at their website, does the standard of their work fit with your vision for your wedding cake? Have a look at their feedback from previous couples, does it mention great service, amazing taste, were they thrilled with the finished cake? If so give them a call, meet over zoom, check if they are someone you would enjoy working with. After all you’re not just choosing a wedding cake, it’s about your whole wedding cake experience. You want it to be enjoyable, stress-free, memorable and at the end of it to walk into the room and see the wedding cake of your dreams!
