    i am making the cupcakes for our wedding, and the venue normally charges $3.50 cake cutting fee, but with cupcakes, it is only $2.  🙁 Super frustrating, but whatever.

    I had cupcakes and one small tier. I did not regret it and my guests loved it. I arranged them really cute on a stand.

    I think the cupcakes are adorable, but I am biased since I am doing cupcakes too. I don’t think you will regret it, especially since the idea you have has a top cake that you can do the traditional cake cutting on anyway.

    I’m not a cake person, I didn’t want to pay a cake cutting fee, and everyone will take home a cupcake before they take home slices of wedding cake.   It was perfect.  Since I purchased close to 60 cupcakes for less than 40 guests, ppl took extras home and we had lots of dessert for several days after.  Also I had 3 flavors available to ppl could try all 3 if they wanted. 

    Go w/ Cupcakes:)

    We did cupcakes and no cake to cut.  I don’t regret it at all!  We did a bunch of different flavored mini cupcakes so you could have more than one.  Yummy!

    @MissCharley85: What about having cupcakes and then having one of those fake foam cakes decorated to look like the real thing. You could even have a real layer in there for you and your Fiance to cut and take home for yourselves. My Fiance and I are doing cupcakes and instead of a foam cake we will have a little two layer cake that we can cut and take home.

    We are doing half and half. Our baker has a stand so that the top tiers can be cake and the bottom can be cupcakes…..

    I like both examples, because even the cupcake one has a cake on the top layer which looks nice. 🙂 Either way you can’t go wrong.

    i don’t really like that particular cake.  But i prefer cake for weddings in general.  Cupcakes just remind me too much of kids B-day parties and I want to avoid that at weddings.

    I am all about cupcakes, but my FH wants a traditional cake still. To compromise, I think we’ll be going with the option that has a small cake on top of the cupcakes, like pictured above – everyone wins!

    I love the cupcakes over a traditional cake.  I feel like I never see anyone eating cake.  Plus, people are usually surprised to see it.

    I think cupcakes definitely! I am going to do cupcakes as well; they will be in small mason jars as wedding favors, as well as have a stand and everything with them just decorated and ready to eat. Yum!

    We did cupcakes (our venue still charged us $3 per person – ridiculous!) because it was just more our style. I loved how it turned out! We did not do a “cutting,” but we still fed eachother a cupcake and it made great pictures!
