Choosing Your Wedding Cake

At Save The Date, we understand the importance of cakes as a symbol of luxury and celebration at a wedding.

This is why we can also work with bakers to organize the wedding cake of your choice, all the while taking care of more than just organizing it, but rather making sure the size, color and flavor are the ones you pointed out.


The most important part of making a choice regarding the wedding cake is probably going to be the size. Some couples or families might have a set preference in mind, but not many people are good at considering how many tiers and how big a cake will be enough.

For the size of the cake, one of the factors to consider is how many guests will come to the wedding. If it is a large wedding with many guests, you would be better off with at least three tiers and larger sizes. Depending on the number of your guests, we will also be able to advise you on what the best choice is.

The second factor is the size of the cake slices. Usually, people supposed to be serving the cakes will cut it up into equal pieces, with the total number of guests and size of the cake in mind.

In this case, it can also be helpful to know how many children will be attending the wedding, since you might want to serve them bigger slices, and because they will likely ask for a second serving.

On that point, there is the question of how many servings each guest will get. This depends on the arrangement of the serving. Usually, the people give the task of slicing the cake and distributing it will ensure every one got a slice, and then wrap it up.

In small weddings on the other hand, you might want to serve second portions, due to which the cake will have to be bigger than you thought.

Of course, one of the best things you can do to be 100% sure of the fact that the cake size and flavor will be good enough for you is get in touch with us early, so we can organize a visit to the baker, or share your options. This could also be the time you can taste samples of the flavor and frosting, alongside deciding the exact color and decoration.


In terms of the size of the cake, you also have the option to choose from different tier dimensions and heights.

There are a lot of couples that care not only about the taste and the color of the cake, but also of how it looks overall.

Most brides and grooms would want it to look big in height, even if that means the thickness of the tiers drops. This is probably because a tall and slim cake also makes for better photos than a thick and short one.
