Hey bees! After some drama with our cake baker (who merged with a new person who can’t do the same flavors or design), I’m having ridiculous thoughts of buying a cake stand to add a little something to a design that wasn’t our original plan. I’d love to know what you did or are planning to do. I’d love to see pictures!
Here is what our cake will look like:
And some cake stands I’m looking at:

I found one for $1 at the local thrift store and got it there. 🙂 I don’t think I’d pay more for it–we’re also not investing in a special cake cutting set or anything, we’re just bringing a knife and cake server from home because.. who’se even gonna see that?

I bought mine at home goods, replaced the ribbon and wrapped it with rope (nautical themed wedding). It fit my theme so much better than the ones offered by the baker and was cheaper to buy it than to rent one. I have no use for it now and it doesn’t really fit into my cabinets, but I can’t bear to let go of it. I think it cost me around $15 and I’ve seen them at Home Goods fairly recently.

I bought this one, to be used at my daughter’s wedding. Her wedding colors included gold and the hotel only had silver. It cost around $120, maybe because that was with express shipping? I told the hotel to keep it as it was fairly large, we had no use for it, and we had enough things to haul back home with us.

Following, I need ideas too.

I wouldn’t know what to do with it after the wedding so we’re renting a stone urn from our event designer…
Cake will look something like this…

I had to check pictures to see if we had one, we didn’t. If you would need to sneak it into your budget I would just skip it, I don’t recall ever noticing if the cake is on a stand at weddings I have been to.

We rented one like the bottom one of yours from our cake baker. For the groom’s cake, we used a crystal cake stand that we already had. (DH got it as a wedding gift for his first marriage)

I have a Ross and TJ Maxx right next to my house (a block away) so I am just going to check there until I see something I like 🙂

I didn’t even think of checking “normal” stores (non-wedding related stores)! Good idea.
I agree, I don’t think I’ve ever noticed if there has been one at any weddings I’ve gone to, but it’s one of those things I think I just caught the “wedding bug” about.

To be honest, I think I prefer the look without a stand? IDK in your pictures it just looks so clean and elegant where as some of the stands are a bit over the top

I got mine for $12 at marshalls!

Bought one at Home Goods and sold it on craigslist after the wedding.

We didn’t have one. I didn’t think it was necessary. I wanted to spend money on other things. If you find one for cheap that you like go for it, but they are not needed!

We rented one from our baker. It was just easier that way
