After you get over the initial joy of your engagement, it’s time to start planning your wedding. Once you’re done with choosing the wedding venue, the date, and finalizing the guest list, it is time to focus on your wedding reception items, including your wedding cake. From elegant and simple designs to extravagant and elaborate decorations, your wedding cake should ideally reflect your wedding theme, the individual personalities of you and your significant other, or incorporate elements that hold a special meaning for you. Here are a few things you should consider before finalizing your wedding cake in Dubai:
Decide On A Budget
Taking into account how elaborate you want your cake to be and your guest list, you should decide on a budget and set an upper limit for the amount of money you are willing to splurge on your wedding cake. This would help your baker recommend suggestions for decoration options that would fit within your budget while being in line with your aesthetic preferences.
Be Open To Cake Flavors
If there is a flavor option that you and your spouse prefer, you should request it for your wedding reception. Though, it is better to schedule a cake sampling meeting first to experience new flavors that might be better than what you had in mind. You can also let your baker recommend flavor trends, flavor combinations, and their signature flavors. Let your baker know what type of drinks you are planning to serve at the wedding reception and your wedding menu. This will help them recommend flavors which best complement your drinks and food menu.
Look Up Cake Decor Options
Once you have a clear idea of how you want your wedding cake to look like, you can discuss your options more easily with the wedding baker and better communicate your desires. Decide beforehand if you want butter cream or fondant, themed or classic, an elegant yet simple tiered cake, or something more fancy. When it comes to wedding cakes, options are countless. What’s important is that you find a wedding cake which best suits your budget and theme.
Get the Best Value for Your Money!
Just as when you book a wedding photographer for covering your wedding, most give you a free or discounted wedding engagement session, a lot of Bakers do the same. You can ask them to create a miniature replica of your wedding cake at a discounted price for your first anniversary, or a small complementary cake for some other occasion. This could save you money in the long run. You can also consider availing free online cake delivery in Dubai to take one task off your hands.
