Never seen or heard of it before sounds expensive I guess it depends on what type of look your going for and the theme of your wedding if you have one

I did this for my first wedding and it was SO cute. We had a single round cake that basically served the table (8-10) with a tiny bride and groom cake topper.

Then we had a small three-tiered wedding cake to cut for pictures. It was actually less expensive than floral arrangements.

@thelawwon:  I seem to have a memory of something similar. There might have been a Bee blogger who did something like this (at a shower maybe?).  I would Google it. The cakes looked really cool.

I don’t think that it would be as expensive as a fresh flower arrangement. If you went with standard bakery cakes (don’t mention they are for a wedding), they could end up being less expensive.  You could do different flavours and ice them all the same or make each table completely different.  

The only thing I would think about would be this: would you be mad if people at the tables started sampling the cake before they were supposed too?  This already happens at weddings where there is one large cake or a cake as part of a display and I would worry about people being confused.  You could always add a cute little sign explaining things.
