My mom has a wedding cake business. My friend from university is getting married in August and she’s meeting with my mom this afternoon to order her cake. My mom called and asked if FI and I would like to gift them their cake, which is worth about 200-250, which is about how much we’d spend. BUT, we’d only to paying my mom for supplies/ingredients.
Is this a bad idea?
ETA: We’re in a bad spot financially right now, because FI isn’t working for about a month while he takes a course… so this option is really appealing, I’m just not sure if it’s tacky or something…

I think that is a fantastic idea!!

I would do it! Especially since you can’t really afford to pay $200 out of pocket to them.

I think it’s fantastic since you know she wants to order it from your mom, it wouldn’t be one of those awkward gifts like the cousin who got his first DSLR offering to be your photographer, haha.

I would definitely do it! Our cake is being gifted to us by a baker friend and I really appreciate it and it is a detail which makes our day even more special.

It’s such a nice idea, I’m sure that the bride and groom will appreciate having that 200-250 in cash now to spend on another part of their wedding too! 🙂

Totally go for it! I would have loved it if someone gifted us our cake! And it sounds like you may not be able to afford something of equal value from their registry, so this is an awesome solution. I think most brides would love that.
