There will always be someone who thinks its tacky. And there’ll always be someone who thinks that a traditional cake is tacky. Personally I think it’s a cute idea, really fun and less formal than a full cake slice on a plate with a fork. Also I’m not a big cake person so I’m up for any way to make eating cake type substances more fun.

I love the cupcake idea bcuz some of the places i had looked at charge a cake cutting fee but sometimes the venue will include the cake. I think im gonna do the cupcake thing.

That is such a cute idea!!  I think you should go for it!  Ignore naysayers of cupcakes, a cupcake is just a piece of cake in a wrapper.  Seriously some people are so NITPICKY!  I think it’s a fun idea, and I would think it was so cool if I attended a wedding with cupcakes!

I think it’s an awesome idea, in fact we are having cupcakes as well. I agree with littlemissmoo, and you are not going to be able to please everyone. If you are trying to save money you could also have a traditional cake, but do sheet cakes in the back. Your display cake would be a smaller cake, maybe two tiers, and then more cake in the back that will be cut and served to guests. Wedding cakes can cost a lot because of the labor that goes into stacking the layers. Just another option to look into 🙂

Go with what makes you happy! Don’t let anyone’s “pushy” opinions cloud your feelings. Future in-laws being pushy on something like this makes me mad!

I love cupcakes and I am doing them for sure. Mine are going to be pretty simple and we are adding blackberries, raspberries and blueberries to the top. My caterer is setting a table up like this with my colors –

I had cupcakes at my wedding and they were a HUGE hit.

 

Do it, it was really fun and sweet.

we’re 95% for sure doing cupcakes, and it’s a fairly formal wedding (ie evening, ceremony at a synagogue and reception at a hotel). not tacky at all! 🙂

I love the idea and look of cupcakes!  I don’t think its tacky at all.  And I’m all about the less expensive alternative!

I am most likely having cupcakes. I love those:

my main reason is that they don’t need cutting, are easy to take home as favors, and I can have lots of flavors! And they look really cute! (:

I dont think its tacky at all.  I did cake because it was traditional but I wouldve love to have cupcakes too!  What about doing some mini cupcakes so people can eat them in 1 bite?

Cupcakes are definitely NOT tacky! If that’s what you want and your mom can make them, don’t let others’ pushy opinions sway you. People who are uncomfortable picking them up and eating them will use a fork. I was at a baby shower with cupcakes yesterday, and about half of us got forks to eat our cupcakes and half picked ’em up. People know what to do 🙂
