I love, love, love cupcakes!  We are also doing cupcakes at our wedding.  I don’t think they are tacky at all! I agree with many others that someone will always have something to complain about.  I know it is hard to ignore people’s negative comments sometimes, but you need to do what YOU want because it is YOUR day!  Good luck with whatever you decide!  ๐Ÿ™‚

If it’s on the cover of Martha Stewart Weddings, it isn’t tacky.

I love the cupcake idea. They are just the right size!!!

We are having a cake, but I did seriously consider cupcakes. We aren’t able to do them ourselves though, and it would have cost about the same as the cake we are getting.

I am doing wedding mini cupcakes from a place called Dozen here in Pittsburgh. This allows us to pick 5 different flavors of cupcakes for guests to select from. We are also having a small cake on top for us to cut. The cupcakes are totally about $300. Its cheaper, I think they are adorable annnnd there is no cake cutting fee ;-).

Is your aunt a good baker?

I used to bartend weddings, and after sampling a lot of cake (and I LOVE cake), I was very sad to discover that the majority of wedding cakes aren’t really that tasty. As a true cake lover, I would rather have delicious cupcakes than a slice of dry cake any day.

I agree. Whatever you decide is fine. I saw a girl that did cupcakes shaped as flowers for her wedding that were at each place setting atop an upside-down wine glass. The base of the glass was like a pedestal. It was a pretty ingenious idea.

We’re definitely doing cupcakes! I’m so excited about it, and it’s so nice, because we will be able to have a bunch of different flavors rather than just one or two!

Cupcakes are so cute and a big trend now!  Your Mother-In-Law and SIL can eat with forks.  And truthfully, it’s your and your FI’s wedding…therefore it’s your choice what type of cake it is.  =)

For us, we may do cupcakes… With how my Future Mother-In-Law is acting lately and considering that she had the connection to a free cake for us, I’ve decided to look at alternatives for our wedding cake.  When I brought up the idea of making our own cake, future hubs frowned…  But he did like my idea of getting cupcakes from a local bakery where he applied to work until starting school.  It’s called dozens cupcakes and their cupcake wedding set-ups are so cute!
