Have Your Cake & Eat It Too!

So you've gotten an idea of how many of your friends and family are going to be attending your wedding celebrations and now it's time to move onto the next step... Feeding them all.

Kitchener Wedding Planner

Not only do you need to calculate how many meals you are going to need to provide but how much cake you want your guests to be able to indulge in as well.  Cake size can be up to you and your loving partner to see if you want to give everyone a slice or if it's just for those eager guests that can have first come first serve. To help you get started...click the link to view a simple Cake Serving Guide!

If you are looking to give all of your loved ones a piece of your beautiful cake, you are going to need a frame of reference as to how big of a cake you will need!

First things first, decide if you are having a round wedding cake or a square shaped one. Surprisingly this makes a difference with the amount of slices you will have. If you are choosing a round wedding cake it may give you less delicious slices than the square shaped size, but this is also dependent on the size of your family and friend group and how big of slices your guests prefer.

If you have a more intimate party you will need approximately a 6 to 8 inch round cake or cake tower to feed about 30 people. This will make sure that everyone attending your magical day will get to enjoy the dessert as much as they enjoyed the dinner!

If you have a slightly larger ceremony and are planning to feed a few more hungry mouths, a 10 to 12 inch round cake tower will feed around 40-60 guests. If you are partial to square cake towers, this size will feed approximately 50-70 people. Remember to consider how big you are cutting your sizes. A standard cake slice is 1 inch by 2 inches so make sure you are putting that into your vision of your perfect wedding cake.

What if you have a slightly LARGER party than this? Try looking at a 14 to 16 inch cake! With a round cake tower this size you can feed up to 100 guests! If you are just over that limit a 14 to 16 inch square shaped cake will deliver cake to about 130 guests, ensuring that everyone is happy with their scrumptious piece of heaven.

All of these cake sizes are some great head starts to figuring out the finishing touches on your special day. All you need to do next is find a baker that can make these dreams come true! Stay tuned to find out tips on how to cross that one off of your list as well!

~Trendy Mondays~ ‘Something new’ to carry down the aisle!

Say no to flower power and opt for something completely different!  With each bride wanting to add a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ to their wedding, there are so many alternatives to choose from.  As beautiful as flowers are, they are not for everyone but some of these other “details” might just be down your ‘aisle’!

Bouquets have been replaced by many things that make a statement reflecting the bride’s tastes and personality. Check out some of the items that have made an appearance at weddings.  

Parasols
A parasol can add elegance to the bride’s outfit, especially in satin, lace or silk. It is also practical too for an outdoor wedding to shade you from the sun or protect you from the rain!

 

 

Fans
How about a decorative fan to match your theme?

 

 

Candles
Light up with a candle bouquet for that romantic ambience.

 

Lanterns

Whether it be metal or paper, lanterns are a great alternative to the traditional floral bouquet.  Bring out your personality with this detail of your wedding.  It could even double as a part of the reception decor!  The bridesmaids place their lanterns on the head table and there you go - instant decor!

  

Books
Normally this would be the bible, but brides nowadays are going for their favourite books instead! 

  

A plethora of ideas to choose from and the list doesn’t end here, anything goes!

Have fun with it!
