I’m leaning towards doing a grooms cake (I know he’d love it) but have it at the rehersal dinner instead of the wedding.
Are you doing a grooms cake? If so how much did it cost or how much did you budget for it? I have no idea.

At the rehearsal dinner makes more sense. I never really understood them at wedding receptions when there already is cake.
Unless you do something really crazy creative it could probably be pretty inexpensive. Depending on how many you have at your rehearsal I’d say under $50.

I love the idea of the groom’s cake and if I could find an affordable baker that could make a cool enough cake I’d really want one… but lucky for my budget I haven’t found anyone in my area that seems to make specialty cakes so we’re bypassing it. Fiance won’t even realize it’s not there so no biggy 🙂

We did one. We had it at the wedding. I wanted more people to see it then just our small rd dinner guests. Darling Husband is obsessed with sushi. This cost $120

My good friend is a professional baker so I’m paying full price for the wedding cake, and she’s doing the groom’s cake for free. We’re doing his favorite college football team’s football jersey with his last name on the back.
This isn’t my cake, but this is a similar one she has done.
I planned on having it at the reception. She has asked that I not have it with the wedding cake (she wants the wedding cake to stand alone, she takes great pride in her work), so I’ll probably bring this out after we cut our wedding cake, and surprise him.

I’d love to have one, but the design I want would probably cost an arm and a leg.

We did ours at the wedding, I just wanted more cake . Our wedding cake flavor was more for the older generation, groom’s cake flavors were more for us and our friends. $170 and served about 90.

My friend and I are going to attempt to make one, so if it comes out semi-okay we’re having it at the rehearsal dinner. No way am I going to display it in front of 100 guests :).
