11 Questions to Ask Your Prospective Wedding Cake Baker


Ask these eleven questions of your prospective wedding cake baker to ensure there are no unwelcome surprises on the day of the wedding (or after).

  1. Do you have a portfolio that I can review?
    This can give you a quick feel to see if you like their style.
  2. How do you price your cakes?
    Some bakers calculate the pricing per slice...others charge based  on the time to design the cake.  Also, some charge extras for embellishments, and most bakers charge extra for premium flavors and frosting.
  3. Are there additional rental fees?
    Make sure you understand all fees upfront before booking the baker!
  4. What are my options for personalizing the design?
    Check to see if they can create a custom design based on photos you provide of other cakes you admire, or details from your dress.
  5. What are my options for flavors, frosting, filling?
    Make sure you get specific pricing for each.
  6. Can you create cakes for special dietary needs?
    Can they make cakes that are kosher, vegetarian, vegan or gluten-free?
  7. When is the cake prepared?
    The fresher the cake the better!
  8. How will my cake be delivered?
    Have your cake delivered by the professional, even if there is an extra fee!  They will be on the hook for ensuring the cake is perfect  when it arrives
  9. What is your return policy for the cake stand(s)?
    Make sure you know the date these items need to be returned by, then assign this job to someone to take care of while you are away on your honeymoon.
  10. What is the deposit required and when is the balance due?
    Make sure you find out if the deposit is refundable in the event of a change.
  11. Do you preserve the top tier for my first anniversary? 
    If not, do you provide the box so I can preserve it? Some bakers will provide you with a FRESH duplicate of your cake top for your 1st anniversary (so much better than frozen!)
As with any other wedding service, make certain that  you have a written, signed contract with your service professional that details the agreed upon price and any other extra charges that might come into play.

Military Weddings

You've decided to have a military wedding—complete with all the pomp and circumstance such a formal affair entails. Here some tips on planning the wedding of your dreams that still conforms to longstanding military tradition and protocol.

Wedding Attire
The main difference between a military wedding and a civilian wedding is that the bride and/or groom will be in uniform. An officer or enlisted personnel in the bridal party wears uniforms that comply with the formality of the wedding and seasonal uniform regulations. For commissioned officers, the evening or mess dress uniform is equivalent to the civilian black tie. Commissioned officers who elect to wear a sword or saber with their uniform should stand to the left of the bride so as to protect her from the blade.

For enlisted personnel, dress blues or Army greens should be worn. Remember, never wear a boutonnière with a military uniform. Military ribbons or medals are the only adornments permitted on the uniform.
