Keep the add ons simple.
A great Bristol wedding photographer will be able to have great perspectives on the cakes no matter how simple they might turn out to be. You don’t have to go over the top with the add ons because this can actually turn out to cost you far more than usual and that is not the type of thing that you would want to go through with especially when you are trying to save money and cut the costs down a little bit at the end of the day. For as long as you have something for the cake cutting ceremony, you should really be just fine so try to see if you can take that into account when you are meeting up with the baker who will be baking your cake. Focus more on the size of the cake and on getting a good flavour. You want it to be both pretty and tasty without blowing your budget all over the place at the end of the day. Talk to your baker about the more economical features. Be upfront with the fact that you are actually trying to work with a budget. Your baker will understand and might be able to work some great options out for you one way or the other.
Get a fake tiered cake.
Tiered cakes can really cost a king’s ransom and this is the kind of thing that you should be managing the right way. If you want a tall cake, then by all means, don’t deprive yourself of it. You can still get a really great looking tiered cake without the ensuing costs. They don’t have to be real, even. Get a cheap one that’s fake and try to see if you can have a simple sheet cake in the back of the kitchen that the staff can cut up and serve out to your guests. No one will be the wiser and no one will even notice. Get your Bristol wedding photographer to get photos of those and things will work out for you after all has been said and done.
Skip the exotic fillings.
Stick to the basics when it comes to things like this. You don’t have to go for the really exotic fillings because they can cost you an arm and a leg and not the type of thing that you should be putting on yourself and on your budget when you are trying to decide on what type of flavouring you would like to go with. Go with the usual. Exotic fillings such as mango or guava can end up costing you so much more and to be honest, it is the type of cost that will turn out to be both extraneous and unnecessary.
Use fresh flowers as embellishments.
Sugar flowers can be expensive and can turn out to cost you so much more than you would anticipate. Fresh flowers are so much prettier and so much cheaper to put on your cakes, so keep that at the back of your head when you are figuring out your wedding cake options.
