Budget Tip Three | Cake Alternatives

There are many alternatives to wedding cake. Becca from lil' Miss Cupcake supplied Kate and I with these itty bitty yellow cupcakes to show off on WZZM last weekend. They were not only adorable, they were absolutely delicious too.

If you're not a cake person, there is no reason to have the big, expensive wedding cake. And another benefit to serving cupcakes? No cake cutting fee will be added to your food bill. I have had clients at the swankiest venues in Grand Rapids serve these tiny cakes in order to save money for this very reason. There are more cake alternatives here.

And, if your heart IS set on having the traditional cake, there are ways to make it more affordable. Pick non-exotic flavors, choose a simple design, use buttercream frosting instead of fondant and go topper-less, letting the simple design shine for itself.
