I would not be ok with the business cards.  Are you doing menus?  Could you list the bakery info on the menu instead?

I think the napkin idea is a good one – but as a guest, also feels like the business card route.

EDIT:  what the heck is in the cake to warrant a $1800 price tag??

I think for that price, I would definitely go for it if I were you!

I will let him put the business cards out where people can see them and pick them up. Like those who do the mini moo cards to tell people where to upload pics. I wouldn’t want him handing them out.

I so wish I could have found vendors who would do sometthing like that for me!  I say if it’s the way to get what you want, do it.  But I think his info would be better received by guests if it was more subtle.  Maybe put his cards in a wine glass by the cake, and also do the napkin thing–I love that idea.  As a guest, I would find that more appealing on his part as a vendor because otherwise I’d see him as a desperate baker doing publicity, you know?

@Miss Baker: are you having any sort of printed ‘anything’ at the wedding?  Perhaps you could have a vendor page in your program???  I’d do that, over handing out business cards!

I doubt that he is expecting to stand there and hand out business cards so rather than have his business information printed on your napkins, I would just leave his cards on a small table in a corner of the room.

I do not think the business cards are a big deal. I would not mind as a guest. I mean if i like it i have his information… if not i leave it on a table.

I would ask him if instead of he himself handing out the cards, if you could just set them by the cake instead. The baker being present, handing out his cards is a bit much, but I think to get over 50% off of something, I’d be willing to hand out his card. Also tell him that you will give him glowing reviews on every wedding review website he would want you to, etc. Word of mouth goes a long way.

@missbitsnpieces:  I agree that a bit more subtle than walking around handing out cards would be ideal.

But even if it’s hand out the cards or no cake, for that price, I would take the cake and just go for it!

If the cards are sitting on the table next to the cake, yes. If he’s walking around handing them out, no. It sounds like this is your dream cake and practically in budget… I hope it works out for you!
