- Wedding: March 2009
OK, I havent read through the other responses (sorry, im at work and have to be very sneaky! Weddingbee is addictive!), but im in the same situation. In Vegas, even the plainest of cakes are upwards of $1000. I cannot afford this. My budget was blown a long time ago on my dress, so i have to be creative and think of things to "skimp" on. (is that a word? well it is now=)
Im going to Vons (grocery store) bakery the morning of the wedding and getting a really decdent already made cake. It should be about $20. We will cut that. I will also have a fancy cupcake shop here in town (the Cupcakery) make cupcakes for our guests. (200)
The cupcakes will not be displayed on a tree thingy-rather will be passed around on silver trays that i scored at goodwill, of all places. With the cupcakes, we will serve milk from the cartons-the small kind you used to get in kindergarden. Total cost: about $200.
