I am bringing mine to the bakery a few days before the wedding so they can put the cake on it and deliver the whole thing. IMO, this is best left to the prodfessionals with experience.

So it is normal for the bakery to do this for you? I am going to ask my baker but I felt a little silly, wondering if they were going to just drop the cake off and we were supposed to transfer it ourselves (wouldn’t it mess up the frosting around the bottom edge)?

Is anyone buying a paper doily or similar decoration for their cake pedestal?

Regardless of whether the bakery does the delivery and setup, the cake will be on a cakeboard.  You can ask the bakery what color cakeboard they’ll be using, and whether it will show at all.
