Why not do cupcakes, have two for each person, they get to eat one at the wedding, and take one home in a cupcake box. You can have a single tier wedding cake for the  cake ceremony.

Have a bakery do the single tier cake, and make the cupcakes yourself.

A girl I used to work with said that her sister’s got her wedding cake and Wal-Mart and it was awesome. 

I have had nothing but terrible experiences with Wal-Mart, so I guess it depends on the location.

But smaller, local grocery stores might be a better option. There’s a Shop N’ Save around here that has an AWESOME bakery and AWESOME wedding cakes! But other Shop N’ Saves are total crap!

I’ve also heard that Costco makes really good cakes so you may want to give them a shot.

@jenilynevette:  Very cute idea, but why are you wanting a 3 tier cake when you are providing cupcakes?

The cake slices that you think people would love to take home would get crushed in the cake bags during the travel ride home and most likely get trashed. Its a waste of your money. Why not consider a small one or two tier cake for the cake ceremony/photo purpose, and the tier that you would freeze for your one year anniversary? Its a lot of sweets to be serving to your guest after they just ate a full meal plus appetizers.

We are serving our cake as part of our desert during our four course dinner, my venue inclues a dessert option, with the wedding cake being cut and put into cake bags for guest to take home, I did not want this for the reason above. One of the dessert options with our dinner service was ice cream and berries, I asked if I choose ice cream would they servce the cake with the ice cream to each guest, and the venue will do it.

Here is my Walmart Cake.  It was very tasty, and everyone was actually asking where we got it.  No, it wasn’t the fanciest, they have about 20 designs, and you can’t have fondant.  But it suited us – and most importantly, our budget.  It cost $135, no delivery, and we had plenty left over.
