Did you have a cake stand for your wedding cake? Looking for advice for ordering mine-any good sites with affordable prices? Do you order the cake before the stand? Do most bakeries provide a stand?
Thanks in advance ladies!

I like to get my cake stands (for gifts, etc) at Homegoods/TJMAXX. They have amazing selections at awesome prices. Most of the time, you can find them for less than 30 bucks.

My baker allows us to rent them if we’d like. I’m looking for about 8 cake stands and so far have done well at thrift stores. I think people often get rid of them because they are bulky and not often used. TJmaxx is also great for thost

It depends on the size of the cake. Sometimes it is just more economical to sent it from the bakery. We are having several small cakes so we bought some on clearance and made some ourselves.

If you are thinking of a cake stand for one traditional wedding cake, many bakeries offer something.
If you don’t like what they have to offer, you can also check rental places near where you live.
Also, consider the type of cake and the theme of your wedding. You might want something rustic and vintage like a slab of wood:
if your wedding is formal you might prefer a plateau:

Thanks Ladies! I will check out TJMAXX/HomeGoods.
@julies1949: What’s the difference between the cake stand and the plateau? The pic you tried to add didn’t show up for me. That slab of wood is a cute idea! My wedding is not rustic though, so it really wouldn’t work for my cake.

It really depends on what you’re looking for and how big the cake is. If you are trying to buy one of the silver ornate stands, get ready to shell out a lot of money. Some bakeries have them for rent also check a wedding rental place too!
Hobby lobby has some iron heavy duty but very pretty candle stands that are up to 14 inches and are $20, plus you can use a coupon. It all depends on what style you want, what your local rental place has and how big of a cake it is.
