We are having a smaller sized wedding – around 75 guests – and are planning to have a tower of cupcakes instead of a traditional cake. All of the towers I keep coming across online are $80+ which seems absurd. The bakery we are getting the cupcakes from doesn’t sell them or have them for rent.
Does anyone know a good place to purchase a cupcake tower? Or another cool way to display them? (having them spread out on a table just won’t have the same effect…)

I know Bed Bath and Beyond has them as seen here. But, I was actually needing one for a baby shower I was going to throw, and found one of Craigslist for like half off. If that doesn’t work for you, check out BB&B and that way you can at least use one of their 20% off coupons.

I saw some at walmart awhile ago.

If you’re looking for a DIY approach, try this site:
DIY Cupcake Stands
Some of these stands have strongly attempted to lure me away from my traditional cake. 🙂 They look like they’d be super fun to make, and are very pretty!
Best of luck!

I saw an adorable one at Crate and Barrel a while ago. I’m not sure how much it was, but it was cute! 🙂

Here is the one I saw. It is $29.95. 🙂

Try to rent one from another baker, or better yet, from a cake supply store. My mom just rented a really large one for my shower and it is only $10 to rent! We aren’t even getting cupcakes from them. 🙂

You can get them at Oriental Trading Co-online ordering. I have two that I use for my classroom at school.

I just ordered mine this week actually! I ordered mine here: http://www.cupcaketree.com/ I like the idea of decorating it however I want. There are 2 sizes I believe.

Is the wedding being catered? If so the catering company may have one you can use or rent.

I have been looking for a few of these myself and so far I have found them at the following places:
William and Sonoma
Bed Bath and Beyond
I also recently saw at Family Dollar (or Dollar Tree) a mini cupcake stand
I have also seen on here some great tutorials on how to build your own cupcake stand or tower similar to the cake stand ones and etc…
Hope that helps
