When choosing their wedding cakes, Georgia couples have a lot of different options. With so many possibilities, it can be hard to know what to do. To get some ideas, contact the bakers listed below, or check out the following tips. They are designed to help you pick a cake that is perfect for your wedding.
Keep Your Venue in Mind
From a practical standpoint, you need to think about how different cakes work with your venue. For instance, if you plan to get married outdoors in the middle of summer, you may want to opt for a cake with a sturdy fondant rather than a cake with potentially meltable buttercream frosting. When looking at different wedding cakes, Macon, GA couples should talk with bakers about their recommendations based on weather, venues, and similar considerations.
Match Your Style
The overall style of your wedding affects everything from wedding party outfits to flowers to table centerpieces, and when choosing wedding cakes, Georgia couples also need to think about the style of their wedding. Whether your wedding style is elegant, upscale, whimsical, modern, or any other theme, your wedding cake should also be in that same style.
Don’t Forget Cake Alternatives
While the traditional option is wedding cakes, Georgia couples have lots of other options as well. Cupcakes, in particular, have become more popular. To give cupcakes the feel of a traditional cake, bakers often display them on tiered stands, and they often frost them together. You have to cut through the frosting even though the cakes themselves are individual units. In some cases, couples take a completely different approach with mini pies, parfaits, cookies, or even gourmet doughnuts. When thinking about wedding cakes, Augusta, GA couples may want to consider going a completely different direction.
Think About Your Budget
When it comes to wedding cakes, Atlanta prices are all over the board. To get a sense if a certain baker is right for your wedding, you may want to start by asking about their prices. Get an estimate of what they charge based on the number of guests you anticipate coming to your wedding. Then, if a particular baker is within your range, you can talk more. You may also want to look at Savannah wedding cakes or cakes in other parts of Georgia.
Sample, Sample, Sample
Shopping for wedding cakes is one of the most fun parts of planning your wedding because you get to sample the wares. Consider going to the Georgia Bridal Show where you can meet with multiple vendors under one roof and sample cakes from a variety of companies. On top of that, most bakers have cake samples you can try on site. Once you’ve narrowed down your list of potential bakers to a handful, you may want to ask for a consultation. During that appointment, you can get into the nitty gritty work of trying different flavors of cake and icing and decide which pairing you want.
