I’ve always planned to make my own wedding cake (and cupcakes), and though at times the idea has made me a little crazy, I’ve never complained about it, because, it’s not that hard, I make cakes all the time.
But my Mom, who, has recently done an about-face about supporting my wedding, just sent me a card that I got in the mail today, with a check for whatever wedding cake I want. She said that they’re beautiful, and special, and I have enough to worry about.
I’m…giddy. So I’m sharing!
What nice wedding surprises have you had?

I think your mom is very sweet to gift you your cake! She probably was worried about you having to make such an important part of your wedding at the very last minute when you will have a million other things to do. I am gifting my son and FDIL their wedding cake from money I inherited from my father (my son’s Grandpa) who passed away recently and saying it’s from him. Everyone knows that Grandpa’s favorite part of weddings was always the cake, so I think it’s an appropriate gift.

That is so awesome!
My best wedding surprise so far has been winning a photobooth that will be provided by my DOC.

That’s a great present. That was very sweet of your mom, literally lol And I am glad that she is in support of the wedding now. That relieves alot of stress from you, right?
An old family friend paid for my dress and is paying for the venue, my little brother is in AK so not sure he can make it so he’s sending half the money for the cake, and my Future Sister-In-Law is giving us $200 toward whatever we want, Fi’s aunt is hiring an orchestra of high school kids for the ceremony, my “play brother” did our E-pic for us and designed our Save the Dates,and FI’s parents are footing the reception bill. Sheesh..I didn’t realize it was that much until I kept typing. It’s all a great help, especially since we figured we were doing it all by ourselves.
