When do you get your wedding cake?

Sonia, on May 5, 2019 at 11:35 Posted in Plan a wedding 0 15
I need to know when you order your wedding cake?
wedding is July 11,2020

my sister told me 9 months. She keeps telling me relax there is lots of time. But me and time do not get a long. And need to make sure everything is done before the months just fly by.

    We went with a really small bakery in Maple, Ontario! Which is close to our venue.

    Hi Sonia,

    All the cake tastings I went to, they were taking tastings for the following year in the fall when wedding high season is over. I had an August wedding, and started booking all the tastings in September/October and made a deposit in November. I think it depends if your baker is super popular. If you find a baker that's not super high in demand then you can probably get one in the beginning of the year. But why risk it right if you have someone specific in mind?

    I鈥檓 geyting married August 3 and I ordered my cake last week. That being said, we won鈥檛 be serving the cake to our guests at the wedding. It鈥檚 only for the cake cutting ceremony and for our family when we open gifts the next day.

    Now I started calling around about two months ago to popular bakeries in the city and because my wedding is on a popular long weekend, many were already full booked. It wasn鈥檛 a big deal for us bc like I said, we aren鈥檛 serving cake to our guests. We are having a 5 course plated meal and there will be a chocolate fountain after the meal. It seemed like a waste to give guests cake after 5 courses.

    If you鈥檙e going to be ordering a large and extravagant cake, I鈥檇 start contacting earlier, like your sister suggested. That way you are ahead of the game.

    I would say it all depends on how extravagant of a cake you are looking for. For example, my wedding is just under 5 months away and I don't have a cake set up yet! lol, with that being said - I would be fine with a cake from Safeway or something because I don't really care...

    If you're stressing about it just get it done! Worked for me!

    We found a person pretty early (person who did the cake at my friends wedding) and we did the tasting pretty early too! Finalized details and now I'll just follow up with her before the wedding!

    Hire who ever you want as early as you want! Just follow up with them from time to time to ensure nothing has changed!

    Bakers can book up surprisingly quickly! I booked mine by 8 months before, which was stipulated in her contract for weddings. It definitely wouldn't hurt to contact bakers now and get quotes before they all book up!

    I didn't realize how far in advance you needed to order your cake or book someone anyway! I went to a bridal show found someone I liked tried to book them and they were booked this was 9 months before my wedding. I would suggest to start quoting people now and book, when you book make sure that the prices won't change or increase though.

    True to agree with Casey. Start researching now before you have to pay a fortune and regret making more calls ahead of time. Get quotes and what kind of cake with # of tiers and deposit required with time notice to give.

    From the beginning of deciding of the cake, it was the baker in town that gave me a fair price and got an idea of what we wanted following the invitation pattern provided by me. Over time, we came to a middle ground and assorted pastries after trying many choices from her family bakery. This was the final result and from the original colour/pattern.

    Honestly, I would say start searching now. It鈥檚 never to early to contact some bakers and get prices or have tastings.
    We are just under 5 months away from our wedding, if I didn鈥檛 have a client who makes cakes, I would be SOL! Every other person I have contacted ( really just doing it to compare prices) has been busy or hasn鈥檛 gotten back to me.
    Make a list and start contacting some, but you don鈥檛 need to rush.
