    I bought mine at Save-on-Crafts when they were having a 25% off sale on wedding stuff.  I think it came out to about $35 and I’m planning on re-selling it after the wedding.

    It depends on what you want the cake table to look like! If you want a nice cake stand, just rent an inexpensive one or find a cool vintage one that’s inexpensive! Good luck!

    It’s totally a personal preference thing. I’ve seen both at weddings, and both look fine. 

    For me, I’m making our cakes so I want to do a whole array of fun vintage and classy cake stands. But if your cake in and of itself is grand, then you’d probably be fine without.

    My baker said the cardboard they put ours in will be covered in fondant.  maybe ask if yours could do that?  Then I just plan on putting some of the centerpiece elements on the table, a few tea lights and some flower buds maybe.

    Im not really a big fan of cake stands – I think they are kind of a waste of money! I have seen cakes not on stands before and it looks totally normal!

    We had a small, somewhat traditional cake and a french croquembouche.  I only purchased a cake stand for my cake but the croquembouche looked fine without it.

    ours i think is coming on a clear acrylic tray. we had to pay a small deposit on it, that we get back when we return it. I like cake stands, but I don’t think it’s a must-have.

    I don’t think we will be getting a cake stand. It’s just not an extra expense we don’t want.

    I clicked No, but then I thought about it and realized that I probably will buy one if it’s not provided. I love shopping in Michael’s baking section and I already have a three-tier one, but that won’t work for the cake.

    We are having cupcakes and I am DIYing the stands, but  you could do the same for your cake!

    We bought a beautiful crystal one at a flea market for $15. It’s something that we may not use often, but it’ll be nice to tuck away for special occasions.
