Wedding Cake Planning: How To Display Your Wedding Cake

When it comes to displaying your wedding cake, you can get as simple or as elaborate you want. From outdoor displays to detailed arches designs, this article has all the inspiration you need for your own wedding.

To start with, here are some rules-of-thumb about wedding cake displaying:

  • Keep in mind the style of your wedding and the style of the venue (elegant, rustic, indoor, outdoors, etc).
  • Don’t push the cake table in the corner. You planned your cake and spent money on it, so it deserves to have a good spot.
  • Choose a nice background for it, as there will be pictures taken when you (the couple) cut the cake. You want the guests to be able to see, and your photographer to have good angles to take pictures. At a backyard wedding, keep in mind that random guest might photo bomb you by accident (ask me how I know).
  • Don’t go too high or too low on the cake table.
  • Choose a sturdy table that will support the weight of the cake.
  • Don’t forget to leave room behind the cake table for you (the couple) to go for the cake cutting.

Summer Vibes

Take advantage of your venue’s landscaping. Lush greenery makes a gorgeous statement against the white wedding cake. A round table, nice tablecloth and some candles is all you need. Venue The Cottage at Riverbend / Planning Ivory and Sage Events / Tabletop rentals The Little Gem Details/ Flowers LAE Floral.

Barrel Rustic Display

If your style is rustic, a barrel might be just what you need for displaying your cake. A rustic cake or boho style will fit perfectly in this setting. Venue On Colin’s Pond.

Cupcakes Display

Beautiful surroundings make for a stunning display. This couple chose to show their cutting cake and cupcakes on stacked boxes. Don’t forget the vintage car. Venue Sunnyside Farm/ Planning Wild Bliss/ Flowers Wildwood Flowers

Dessert Table
