My wedding is on August 27. I am having 140 cupcakes instead of a traditional wedding cake. My cake baker does not own a cupcake stand, so now I am searching for one either to rent or to purchase. After calling a few local party rental stores, most carry stands that can hold up to 50 cupcakes. So, I’m thinking of purchasing one and trying to not break my budget. I would appreciate it if you can please share your experience if you have had cupcakes at the weddings or any suggestion/recommendaton on where to get an affordable to still quality cupcake stand.

I have seen little tiered cupcake “trees” at WalMart, Hobby Lobby, etc. They are in right now, should be easy to find!
Seriously I saw them at WalMart a few months ago in the party section!

There was a posting in the last couple of days with instructions on how to make one with tin cans covered with paper and cake plates edged with ribbon. They were beautiful.
I will try to find the link.

This is not the one I was thinking of but close: http://www.weddingbee.com/2009/03/02/do-it-yourself-tiered-stands/

The one I was thinking of had 3 different sized tin cans covered in paper of a design the bride liked.
The plates were 3 sizes of foil covered cardboard cake plates glued together , and edged with ribbon. The plates were then glued to the cans with the largest can and plate on the bottom, working up to the small size.
