New Ideas

Cake trios! You'll have one main showy wedding cake and then two smaller, simpler versions of your cake on either side. This is great if your cakes are doing double duty as decorations and/or you or a friend or family member are making the cakes yourselves. It creates dramatic impact!


Dear Cheap Chic Weddings,

What is the cost of a wedding cake?



Dear Haley,

Wedding cakes are typically priced by the slice, anywhere from $2.00 to $12 a slice. The fancier the cake, the more it will cost. Butter cream frosting is usually less expensive than fondant. Of course any special hand made sugar flowers, decorations or intricate designs will cost more. A money saving tip: order a cake for half the amount of your guests. Serve half servings...that is plenty for most people. Of course you can order a small fancy cake to present and cut and then serve your guests sheet cake cut in the kitchen. Also not that square cakes will yield more slices than a round cake.

Best of luck!


Love It! Hate It!

Love It!:

*Hot wedding colors: pale pink, black and pewter OR green, white and orange *Fall wedding dresses in nude, gold and shimmering fabrics *Chocolate weddings cakes with rich, thick layers of butter cream frosting.

Hate It!:

*Thunder stealing. Having your wedding on a siblings birthday or a family holiday is rude and inconsiderate.


We love My M&M's for personalized wedding favors. Most people love M&M's and you can get them in your wedding colors..with a picture of you and your fiance and writing on them as well. You can buy them in bulk and either put them in your own favor bags or put them in a large bowl for your candy table. Plus here's a coupon for a discount Get $5 off you order of $50 or more! Code: 5DOLLARSOFF


We come to love not by finding the perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly.
