I know there was a recent discussion about this, but I was going to ask for advice as well.
I posted a couple of days ago about wedding cake costs and it seems we have found someone very reasonable. We are scheduled to go for a tasting with her on 8/18. My issue is I am completely clueless when it comes to wedding cake flavors because I'm not a cake person, but I do want it to taste good!
I am attaching a message she sent me on FB. I don't even know what marble cake is 馃槀.
What flavors are yall having?

    Marble cake is usually a mixture of vanilla and chocolate together.

    Marble is typically yellow cake with chocolate swirled in. We're doing funfetti cake with vanilla buttercream, chocolate with cookie dough filling and vanilla buttercream, and spice cake with cream cheese frosting.

    Marble is chocolate and vanilla swirled together. I am getting married in April too and am doing more what I think of as spring flavors. We are doing lemon, strawberry, and pink velvet.

    Marble cake is chocolate vanilla swirled like this.
    I personally like it because I'm not a chocolate cake person (it's always too rich!) But the marbling makes the chocolate more subtle.

    We are doing the traditional white for the bottom layer, chocolate for the middle, and strawberry on top for ourselves for when we get home. We decided not to worry with keeping our top layer for a year so we went with our favorite on top to eat after the wedding.

    There鈥檚 nothing wrong with going with traditional flavors, it definitely doesn鈥檛 have to be fancy to be good! If you really like a specific fruit, you could always ask her to do fruit filling, strawberry seems to be most popular. I love chocolate, so I鈥檒l do chocolate ganache in at least one layer. My FH doesn鈥檛 care for cake because the frosting is usually too sweet, but cookie dough filling would totally win him over! I also really like tart desserts, I鈥檒l eat spoonfuls of lemon curd, so I have been considering lemon for people who don鈥檛 want super sweet! My problem is I have too many ideas!!

    Are you just not cake people, or not dessert people? If there鈥檚 a dessert you both love, maybe those flavors could be used to create something special for you two.

    Also, you鈥檙e getting married on my birthday 馃榿, great day! Congratulations!

    We are doing cupcakes for the guests, but going to have a small cake for us to cut. We are actually try the cake flavor tomorrow. My aunt is making everything, so I'm not too worried about when we try things. But the cake flavor is vanilla with a blueberry filling. Then for cupcakes we want a carrot cake, red velvet, chocolate, vanilla with some kind of filling and I want either a strawberry or raspberry one too. I am probably going to listen to my aunt's suggestions about flavors too. For a late night snack we are also doing a s'mores bar.
