    I’m doing just cupcakes, because I think they are easier to serve and look cute. In your situation, I would probably just stick with the cake. If you want variety, you can provide another type of dessert like pies or a candy buffet.

    I want to do something like this picture with a small cake at the top (for bride and groom) then tiers of cupcakes for guests below.

    I would stick with the cake. If you want to incorporate cupcakes into your reception you could make them your place cards like I am for our wedding. I am a pastry chef and love to bake so I wanted to find ways to have more treats and we decided on cupcakes for the name cards with the name & table number on them. You can just add the name to whatever design you like. I am at work so I don’t have mine to share but here is one I found online to show you. 

    For example:

    @ejay15:  we’re doing something like this too. Fiance really wanted cupcakes, and I thought cupcakes alone on the top of the stand looked flat, so I asked for a top tier. Plus I wanted a cake topper.

    Do whatever you can afford…but I think the cake is enough…people really don’t pay that much attention to it…or at least I haven’t.

    🙁 The pictures DONT help with the descion haha, I clicked on here knowing to stick to either/or- but now I like the idea of both. Depending of course on your budget though! If you can offer both at your wedding- then Hell yea! it would be SO cute- Some people would just rather have a peice of cake while others might just want a cupcake. IF its not in ur budget then Just go with a cake 🙂

    We plan only on cupcakes only. The past weddings we attended we didn’t even get to try the cake, and honestly, we didn’t even miss/care for the fact we couldn’t get a slice.
