It’s your wedding, do you if you want a sheet cake I say go for it…. all of the wedding stuff is a big racket anyway. We are doing a small two tiered cake, with of course us taking the top tier cuz my fiance wants to freeze the to tier. The bottom tier will feed 45 people, ( we are having 100 guests) but we also have a dessert bar with three different typs of cake, german chocolate, split lemon and carrot cake and we have a vanilla groom cake, and it’s the grooms birthday so he will have his own personal caramel cake… Not to mention the cookies, and candy.. SUGAR OVERLOAD, but our total cost was $565

We had a small tiered cake that was displayed and a sheet cake in the back for everyone else. Great way to save money…and now one knew otherwise.

Thank you everyone! I am now 100 % set on the sheet cake!
I like this design, with lots of buttercream flowers! It may look too traditional in my modern white loft wedding, but who cares! We love it.
What do you think?
Also: Is no cake topper ok?

I don’t really care what the cake looks like as long as ours delicious! That being said, maybe you could do a small decorative cake and have the sheet cakes in the kitchen?

sheet cakes, in my optinion, are for birthdays. I don’t think you need to spend $1000 on a cake either. I just think tiered cakes are more appropriate for weddings, but that is my preference. Your wedding, do what makes you happy

As long as it tastes good!
Also, in case you cared, I don’t consider wearing glasses or sandals or having one Bridesmaid or Best Man as crazy either. The pink dress is a little different, but whatever floats your boat!

No cake topper is perfectly OK. It’s your wedding, so whatever makes you two happy is OK. There is no “right” or “wrong” when it comes to cake. 🙂

I think you should put a cake topper on it. Are there going to be words? Usually sheet cakes have flowers around the edges to leave room for words in the middle- like the second picture you posted. You could really fill it up with designs and flowers and just leave room for a cake topper in the middle, or off to the side 🙂 I also like the “Mr. and Mrs.” in the first one

@mshummy: I think it is up to you. I am not having a cake at all becuase I think cake is gross. It is your wedding, if you wanted a rice crispy cake, or a cookie cake I would say go for it.

Nothing against sheet cake because it’s delicous but I think your wedding cake should be more special than your run of the mill cake you can buy from a grocery store.

@mshummy: I think sheet cake is fine — like most others said, as long as it tastes good, I’d be a happy guest! You can even dress it up a little like this from APW:

There’s a post on A Practical Wedding about dressing up a sheet cake:
I honestly think there are more of those types of posts on there.
I mean, I’m not much of a cake person, but I’d eat it.
I’d say get a cake topper, but I am a big fan of keeping them as a memento. 🙂
We’re just doing a simple silhouette cutout of the two of us, so we can frame it afterwards.
And also, WHAT THE WHAT glasses brides REPRESENT!!

I’m having a tower of cupcakes and the very top a small circular tier cake to cut into for pictures!
Who doesn’t like cake?
