I had originally went with the creamcheese frosting for my wedding cake and the baker agreed to cut half of the sugar out to make it less sweet. However, she called today and said that the cake decorator can’t work with the consistency of the creamcheese frosting with only 1/2 of the sugar. So she recommended that I go with the whipped frosting. Does any one else have any suggestion for a frosting that would look amazing and taste less sweet than creamcheese frosting?

I personally do not like whipped because I need to taste the sugar haha cream cheese all the way!

Do not do whipped cream. It doesn’t travel well. I would just bit the bullet and do full on cream cheese

I think I’m one of the few who REALLY doesn’t like cream cheese, so I would just go with full on cream cheese.

Traditional buttercream frostings aren’t nearly as sweet i.e. not American buttercream. A french buttercream would fit your criteria. I agree that whipped cream is not a good frosting for a wedding cake. It doesn’t travel well and will melt much easier.
Here is the Wilton recipe for French buttercream calling for 2/3 cup sugar.
And here is the recipe for the American buttercream, which calls for FOUR CUPS of confectioners sugar.
I would sit down with your baker and ask her to make up some different frostings for you to try out. But i would suggest to her a french buttercream if you are looking for something that isnt super sweet.
