Food is a very important part of the wedding day, when it is part of the day. Some couples choose not to have a meal and just have a late lunch later. But there are a lot of options when it comes to food. Some couples choose to make it buffet style, some choose a formal sit down dinner, some choose to asks their guests pay, and some choose to hand out tickets so their family can get their meal for free but so that other guests can still join them and pay for their meal. Most times when a couples asks their guests to pay for their meal they should not expect a wedding gift.
When it comes to a cake, the things to think about is flavour and theme. If a couple chooses to have multi-layered cakes, they should choose different flavours. Not everyone likes vanilla, not everyone likes chocolate, it is impossible to please everyone but the odds of having something everyone likes increases with more options. Also just because it is a ''Wedding Cake'' doesn't mean it has to be a cake, cupcakes are very popular options for weddings.
With any cake, cupcake or regular, a very important part is the cake topper! This topper may match the theme or be a traditional bride and groom figure. Either way the couple should be absolutely in love with it. The cake knife and serving set should match the cake topper in some way.
