We are planning to do mini cupcakes for our wedding.  I am not a huge fan of wedding cake (it usually just isn’t that good).  I don’t think it is tacky at all (and we are having a somewhat fancy outdoor wedding).  I think it it is better cause you can get multiple flavors, and people can try more than one.  I would be so happy if everyone did away with wedding cake and went with wedding cupcakes instead!

Definitely not tacky! We’re going to do cupcakes as well. I’m not sure if there is Gigi’s near you, but they have great flavors. And, if you are planning to DIY…maybe you can get some ideas from their menu.

Dozen is where my fiance and I are getting our cupcakes for our wedding 🙂 We decided on mini cupcakes so that they guests can have a variety of flavors, plus their normal cupcake size is HUGE! We had went for a tasting and there were 4 of us and we couldnt finish the cupcakes :-P!

I love their style and think they will fit perfectly with our wedding!!

@rplatzer is spot on!  If it’s good enough for Martha, it’s good enough for me!  Same justification I’m using for doing envelope wraps instead of hand writting each address on the invitation.

And as for it being tacky, that just doesn’t make any sense to me.  Cake and cupcakes are the same thing, so how can one be tacky and the other not?  You can eat anything with your hands, and you can eat anything with a plate and a fork, so just make sure dessert forks and plates are available for those who want them, and you’ll be fine.  Honestly, though, some foods are meant to be eaten with your hands, and it’s still considered perfectly elegant – like butler passed hors d’oeuvres at black tie affairs.  Or would the ILs consider those “tacky” too?  I think cupcakes are a really fun idea and you should go for it!

MY Fiance and I are considering cupcakes, and we are also having a candy/dessert buffet for our favors. My question is… Where do the cupcakes go? On the cake table or on the buffet table? And do they get served to the guests or do the guests grab their own cupcake? Our venue serves a scoop of ice cream with the cake, so would that make matters difficult in using cupcakes in place of cake?
