I’m always leary of too many opinions when really it is only you and your FI’s choice. If it can’t be avoided though since you’ve already invited them, I don’t think it will be TOO terrible depending on how demanding and opinionated they are.

For us, it was only me and Fiance, but I know that doesn’t always work out.

I had six… Fiance and I, my parents, his mom, and my grandma (who paid for the cake)  It was fine, but I think we had to pay a fee for bringing so many people.  Just make sure the bakery is fine with it first.  We all just like cake so we wanted to eat some.

Darling Husband was working out of town alot then and I am the picky one when it came to flavors, so I did it all by myself.  It worked out great because I got to eat all that cake.  Most of the bakeries around here give you small cakes to try, and since I was by myself, I brought them all home.  I ate every bite!  Even the sucky ones, but hey, cake is cake ๐Ÿ˜‰

I wish we would have brought more. There was just Fiance and I and there were a lot of cupcakes…. So many that my head spun.

@Mrs.Lonestar:  Mmm, do it! I went alone (Mr.ND doesn’t like cake) so I ate til I passed out ๐Ÿ™‚ Hehe. But really, 5 sould be ok, just as long as the baker knows to plan for that many. Have a blast!

I think it’ll probably be me, my Fiance, and my mom (: Her and I are planning the wedding together, so even though she probably won’t have much cake, she’ll keep keep us organized and stuff.

I just went with Darling Husband.  Strangely enough, neither of us like cake, so perhaps we weren’t the most qualified to choose in retrospect….

I think 5 is fine, but make sure that’s ok with the bakery.  One of the places we went could only accommodate 3 people, the other said 4, and one place we called said there would be a charge for more than 4 people, I’m guessing due to needing more cake?

Three people went to mine.  But I wasn’t one of them!  My mom, Maid/Matron of Honor, and my mom’s friend went since I live overseas.

It was very sad ๐Ÿ™  For me…they loved it.

Keep in mind, the more you take, the more opinions you have to deal with.  It might actually make it harder to choose.

My cake tasting was my catering tasting too… it’s all being done by the same lady. I had my Fiance, my grandparents (who are paying for the catering and myself. 4 people and she was happy to see all of us. =)
