Not necessarily, but you might want to consider maybe one tier in another flavor, to accommodate people who really don’t like red velvet.

I don’t think it’s selfish at all – red velvet with buttercream is not an outrageous combo so I think most people would like it.  And if they don’t, then there’s more for you! I’m actually hungry for one now that I’m thinking about it… :0)

I don’t think it’s selfish to do your cake all one flavor.  We did it, mostly because it was easier and kept the cost down.  Many people aren’t going to eat cake anyway, so it’s not a huge deal if there aren’t multiple flavor choices.

FWIW, I think your cake sounds delish!

Yum!  I never thought of it as selfish — just a favorite flavor the couple wants everyone to enjoy!

yummmm… my mouth is watering for red velvet cake with cream cheese filling!! During the whole process I continually drove myself insane trying to make sure I had enough choices of EVERYTHING to make sure I had something EVERYONE liked. Well the reality is, there’s always going to be someone that doesn’t like something, so why spend twice as much for no reason. Order what you and your fiance like and move on to the next thing. Jessies right, most people pig out on apps and dinner and are too full for cake by that time anyway.

I personally hate red velvet, but I wouldn’t think anything of it. I would just skip it.

Yummm, I loooove red velvet – sounds delish!  I don’t think it sounds selfish – actually, I think (but am not sure) that having different tiers of cake with different flavors was not always the norm, so you just might be considered a traditionalist.

OMG this thread title literally made me DROOL.   In my opinion it would be *nice* to offer another dessert option if your budget allows but if not, go for the red velvet! YUM!!!!!

When I read the title of this thread, my thought was, "Sounds good to me!"

Some of our cupcakes will be red velvet, the rest are going to be "yellow flavored"!

Not selfish at all!  It’s your cake.  It’ll be yummy!  It’s no different in my mind than people who opt for all vanilla–some people (like me) aren’t the biggest vanilla cake fans, but it doesn’t bother me if I go to a wedding where all the cake is vanilla.

It’s your cake, do what you like! We had two flavors, but only because we couldn’t decide between the two.

Just make sure you get a piece at your wedding! We definitely didn’t.

That sounds so good right now.  I don’t think it’s selfish at all.  I actually think it’s kind of nice to do one flavor.  It’s less complicated and sometimes it’s easier to make people happy with fewer choices.  Because if the person sitting next to me got red velvet and I didn’t, I’d be kinda disappointed…
