    I really like whimsical cupcakes for cetain weddings, it really goes with the more casual or vintage type themes that are less formal.

    As my wedding is very formal and I just don’t get the cupcake vibe so we opted for a  fondant cake instead.

    We had cupcakes and don’t regret it one bit. They were beautiful and super yummy! We had a small “cutting cake” that topped it off so we still got to do that and have the look of a regular cake.

    I’m doing a traditional cake.  I like the look of the traditional cake and cupcakes feel a little less formal to me.  Also, I think cupcakes can be a little messy.  I’m not at all knocking ladies who choose cupcakes, it’s just not my thing.

    Cupcakes are the way to go!  Less expense!  Less hastle!  Equally beautiful and delicious!

    We did cupcakes and everyone loved them!  We had 3 different flavors (vanilla, coconut and lemon) and made a cute sign that explained that you could have the flavor you wanted by the number of yellow rosettes on them.  One rosette was vanilla, two was coconut and three was lemon.  Everyone thought it was super cute and I don’t regret not having a cake.

    We never had a formal “cupcake” cutting, or whatever you call it when you have cupcakes.  Our guests just ate them throughout the night.  DH and I took one at the VERY end of the night and fed it to each other and then ended up smashing it in each other’s faces.  It made for a fun photo op.

    I love cupcakes but i feel like my wedding is too formal for them. However, if we had a 3.50 a person cake cutting fee i would just have cupcakes!

    I would regret having cupcakes myself, and I know that, which is why–despite my love of cupcakes–I’m getting a cake. I thinka compromise though, is to get a small cake to cut and display and to serve cupcakes, but something bothers me (and I don’t know why) about the tables of cucpcakes and the towers of cupcakes.

    I’m doing a mix of cupcakes and mini cupcakes.  We’re going to have a small cake on the top to cut.  I don’t expect everyone to take a regular cupcake and I thought our minis would be nice to go with the sweets table.

    I’m so excited to see how it turns out.  I had to have my mom and Maid/Matron of Honor do the taste testing because I’m overseas.  They loved it!

    I think cupcakes are cute, but DH has sort of an irrational hatred for them so we went with cake. I wouldn’t worry about what you’re going to think years from now, (After all, everything we do dates itself) but if you want cupcakes, go for it!

    I had cupcakes as they were what my DH wanted, the cheaper option, more practical as it was our dessert and delicious but I do regret not having the beautiful tiered cake I wanted.

    Cupcakes are cute and there are some really nice looking cupcake towers out there, but I prefer the more traditional cake form.

    Cupcakes are a little cheaper per serving, but if it is just the cake cotting cost (not the actual cost per serving of the cake) I would tell the vendor “no thanks” and appoint a relative to do the cake cutting. My Future Mother-In-Law has been asked to cut the cake up at three weddings.

    My partner really wanted cupcakes for our wedding, so that’s what we had! I’m glad we did it that way because we had a small wedding. By having cupcakes we were able to have several differant flavors. Here’s a picture
