    I personally wouldn’t do marble just in case there is someone with a minor chocolate allergy. They wouldn’t be able to have any cake. Have you thought about having a smaller two flavor wedding cake AND offering a third flavor in the form of cupcakes? Generally cupcakes are cheaper and you could potentially save some money if the wedding cake was smaller.

    Red velvet is basically chocolate anyway. It’s my favorite so I voted for that! I think vanilla & chocolate are more “standard” and I like the idea of a more unique flavored cake!

    Personally I’d go for the safe option which is chocolate, but I prefer chocolate to red velvet anyway.

    I’d rather have chocolate than red velvet. I mean, I’ll still eat red velvet but if I have a choice it would be chocolate.

    Cake is literally my favorite subject in the world lol. Thanks for bringing it up! I’m not the biggest fan of red velvet personally. It’s good and all but eh. I’m in the minority though. People love red velvet, like swoon over it. That’s my vote for sure. Congrats on your wedding! 🙂

    I’ve never really understood the red velvet love. My vote is chocolate and vanilla.

    Red velvet always tastes more like chemicals than chocolate to me.  I personally love marble (I also always get twist soft serve). If you don’t want to commit to only one,  then do vanilla and chocolate.

    Red velvet mostly just tastes like food coloring to me. I much prefer real chocolate!

    I know one thing i supposed to be traditional, but that doesn’t mean it’s going to be popular. Husband and I had a 3 tier wedding cake and a smaller grooms cake. The wedding cake was very elaborately decorated, I think 3 flavors but the main tier was white cake. The grooms cake was a vanillia cake and chocolate cake with a whipped cream type icing.

    Everyone ate up the grooms cake, came back for seconds and barely touched the wedding cake. Kind of impossible to get something that will please everyone. At most weddings I’ve been to not everyone eats cake anyhow. Just get the cake that you like and think will be most popular.

    Before our wedding I would have picked vanilla and red velvet, neither of us are a fan of vanilla but its a boring standard flavor that seems to appeal to many so thats fine. But from recent experience I’d say marble and red velvet if you can only pick two. Out of our five flavors marble, red velvet and lemon were snatched up quick. Might be a regional thing, no clue. Everyone I know loves red velvet. Maybe it depends on how its made bc I wouldn’t love anything that tasted like a bunch of chemicals.

    I’m bit confused when talk about red velvet. It should be chocolate cake with red coloring right? I normally hate it, it tasted somewhere in the middle. But here 1 bakery sells what’s like rhum cake with cream cheese & candied almond and called it red velvet lol, very delicious.

    But yeah the safest bet is vanilla and chocolate.
