What Size Wedding Cake Should You Have?

10 Dec 2020 Weddings

Determining what size wedding cake you should have can often be a challenge, especially when it comes to ensuring that there will be enough for each of your guests to enjoy. At InStyle Floor Wraps, they know that there are a lot of things to take into consideration when choosing the perfect wedding cake for your special day. That is why they have put together some simple tips to help you choose the right size wedding cake.

1. Consider How Much Cake is Needed for Guests

One of the first things that you will need to think about when ordering a wedding cake is how many servings you will need. While it is nice to have enough cake for all of your guests to enjoy, it is important to keep in mind that not everyone will eat a piece. Make sure to talk to your baker about how many guests a typical cake tier can serve, as well as to take into consideration whether or not you want to have enough cake for guests to have seconds.

2. Consider the Size of the Cake Slices

Make sure to take into consideration how thick you want the cake slices to be cut at your wedding. In most cases, traditional, high-end venues will serve very thin slices of cake, while more casual venues will serve thicker slices.

3. Think About Aesthetics

If you love the look of large wedding cakes but do not need to serve cake to that many people, consider talking to your baker about creative options for getting the look you want without having a bunch of leftovers. A growing trend in wedding cake design is to have a couple of tiers made from polystyrene covered in icing. These fake tiers are decorated to match of the rest of the cake, making the cake look bigger than it really is.

4. Determine if You Will be Serving Additional Desserts

If you are planning on serving other desserts in addition to your wedding cake, chances are that you will be able to get away with ordering a much smaller cake. Consider having your baker whip up some cupcakes that match your wedding cake or a variety of other sweet treats for your guests to choose from.
