Hi all ... I have a question! All opinions welcome.
We plan to have a wedding cake solely to serve a function – to maintain tradition and to have a photo of us cutting it. We've looked at the wedding cakes being sold at supermarkets and, although they're cheaper than having one made professionally, are still quite expensive to serve the full number of guests attending.
We've been to several weddings in the past and never had a slice of the wedding cake, and it's heartbreaking to think that so much money is spent on something that not everyone eats and then gets thrown in the bin. So we're debating whether to have just a small cake to save money, either a supermarket or professionally made cake.
My question is ... is it wrong to have a cake that will only cater for a certain number of guests? We plan to have 90 guests in the day and about 130 in the evening. I know some will want cake and others won't be bothered, but I worry that it could be considered inappropriate.
Both sets of parents seem to think that it doesn't matter, as those who really want cake will make sure they have a slice. As seems to be the case in the evening, only a percentage of guests are catered for as the majority will still be full from the wedding breakfast, so does the same apply to cake?
