Do you need a cakestand?

While I think either would be lovely, I don’t know if you actually need one. I spent so many hours looking for the perfect cake stand that met our bakers specifications because she said we needed when when we met her. I just double checked to make sure it was large enough and now she said we don’t need it with the design of our cake! I wasted all the time and stressed over it for nothing. I would ask if they thought you really needed it, then decided if YOU really needed it.

I know how you feel. I was extremely happy when we booked ours.

I think your mom’s cake stand would be awesome with your cake, and it would be your something borrowed 🙂

And I bet your mom would be ecstatic and honored, if you asked her.

I think the bottom of your mom’s cake stand/plate would look awesome with your cake too!!!

Beautiful cake! We didn’t have a cakestand, I wouldn’t bother with it unless you really want one.

Oo, I love the idea of using the wood one!

I think the wood one would be beautiful, but I’m not sure I’d want to deal with traveling with that and everything else you’ll need to bring. The cake is pretty enough that it will look good without a stand too.

I love cakestands and always think that a cake looks a little sad without one to present it. I don’t think which one matters too much though.
