I think this is such a cute idea- my sister considered it for a bit. 

Personally, I think it’s extremely economical. $35 is actually on the low end for centerpieces (from what I’ve seen), and you also save money on dessert!

I agree, $35 isn’t TOO bad for centerpieces and it’s nice that you’ll be saving on desserts! Plus you should probs be able to resell the cake stands on the Classifieds section here, lots of brides are looking for them 🙂

If you decide $35 is too much but you still want cake stands for centerpieces, you should look at consignment stores and thrift stores, I’ve been collecting vintage glass cake stands for our sweets table – they look a lot like this:


And so far they’ve only costed $3 to $5 each.

I think it’s a great idea but I wouldn’t budget $600 for cakestands. Many bees have paid much less than $35 each for centerpieces.

What are you going to do with those 20 cake stands after the wedding.

If I really wanted them I would do a DIY. Do you have a pic of the cake stand you love?

If it’s the one with the hammered metal case, you can easily do that with a bathroom tumbler and a glass plate.

Here’s a great tutorial for all kinds of cakestands.


ps before you start purchasing, I would make sure our vision for your decor is firmly set in your mind.
