Wedding Cakes vs. Dessert Bar
Cakes are v expensive and honestly so many people are moving towards dessert tables now. If you still want to do the cake cutting portion of the wedding, a lot of couples are now just getting a small cake (still will run you $200-300), and then getting a cheap sheet cake that is in the back from HEB ($50) for guests to have. If you are a cake person – the rule of thumb is the brides cake is the fancy, beautiful wedding cake; the grooms cake is a time to get creative and funny with sporting teams, hobbies, pets, etc. Or, if you’re just not for the cake at all, get creative with your dessert bar!
