I’m also interested in this answer!  I have no idea when to start thinking about it…

You should at least be getting an idea of what you want in your head now.

I had my idea for our groomscake and ordered it about 9 months before the wedding. I love crossing things off of my list early to ease stress later on and it worked out wonderfully 🙂 I definitely don’t think you’re worrying about it too early. You’re being smart!

I’ve always heard that you should start at at least 6 months or so. But it’s never too early!

@Miss Bella – It’s mainly a southern tradition. It’s a cake that is usually in a different flavor from the regular cake (traditionally, it’s chocolate) and it’s usually decorated for one of the groom’s interests or hobbies! I think it started to provide an alternative for guests who don’t like whatever the regular cake is, but now it’s just a fun thing to express the groom’s interests!

@Miss Bella- I had a pretty cake of my choosing and my groom got to have a fun cake for him 🙂 It’s a fun tradition, but it’s definitely not required

I ordered my grooms cake in February and I am getting married in June.

I think you are smart to worry EARLY because it’ll help you from being stressed later.

I agree with @bella…anything I can cross off the list early I do!!!

I’m ordering it when we do the wedding cake.

I never knew it was southern in tradition, but then again I am and love all things southern so it’s just been the norm for me.

And let’s face it, who doesn’t love something slightly different and more chocolatey than wedding cake?  Variety is the spice of life!

I’ve designed T’s cake well over a year ago and he thinks it’s great!

I’m planning on making the groom’s cake. I was going to make 2 seperate ones, 1 for rehearsal and 1 for the wedding, but Fiance unknowingly ruined this idea because he decided no rehearsal, so I’m trying to decide between a car and a companion cube for him haha. But if you’re outsourcing I’d say start contacting people now. That way you know you have it nailed down and won’t have to stress about it anymore.

We ordered ours the same time that we ordered our wedding cake. We’re a little over 4 months away right now. I think the earlier the better!

i have a general idea for our grooms cake (Green Bay Packers).  However, I don’t know if it’s going to be at the rehearsal or the reception, and I don’t know if I’m going to make it, or have a professional make it.  Lol.  Considering I’m trying to make my own baking business, it might be good practice if I made it, but I’m worried I’ll be too stressed to make it around the wedding.

 

Oh and Fiance has no idea about it, major surprise!
