Do you know if he has the availability to make your cake on your wedding day?  If you know he does, then you could wait for him.  If you don’t know, then I would find another bakery.  I think September is probably a very busy month of bakeries because people probably pick that month thinking it won’t be as warm as July and August.  Usually bakeries can only do a handful of cakes each day.

Probably, if you want something elaborate. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t try. Also, try grocery stores or small bakeries that don’t normally do wedding cake – they might not have your date booked already.

If you want a simple cake then you will be good. I know for my cake the lady needs to get started on the gum paste now and its 4 months prior

No, when my brother had his wedding earlier this year they ordered a cake 4 days before the wedding from a baker. The cake didnt have a complex design though. It was very simple it had scrolls and pearls.

Unless you’ve already ordered, it’s a bit risky.  Sam’s Club does delicious beautiful cakes and cupcakes!

Why not order a “blank” fondant covered cake from grocery store.  If you have a cake decorating shop nearby, they will probably carry all kinds of sugar decorations (flowers, pearls, birds, etc) that you can personalize the cake with.  They will probably rent cake stands, too.  Or, cupcakes are still immensly popular, and are easier to make on short notice.
