Do you love the sleek look of single tier wedding cakes? Or are you planning on stacking those cake tiers sky high?Does it all depend on how many guests you need to feed??

    We had one on our dessert buffet, but I love the look of three! I am a cake designer and I find that anything more than three IMO only is over kill and gaudy.

    2 tiers for the cutting cake/ cake we are saving for our 1 year anniversary. Then we will have cupcakes, cookies and a few other desserts.

    Probably one. We aren't making a big deal out of the cake cutting, just the 2 of us and the photographer, so we don't need something crazy. Everyone else will be getting cupcakes.

    We are doing a 2 tier tall round cake. These are the only cakes I really like, and if we’d had too many guests for one, I was just not going to have cake at all.

    We're doing a three-tier. I think it's such a classic look, so I'm excited to see the finished product!

    Our "elopement" package with our ceremony venue only offers a 1 tier cake. Makes sense since there won't be many people.

    4! Having a tall cake was important to me! FH's groom's cake will be 3 tiers. We'll, also, have a chocolate sheet cake in the back. We have 220 people coming to the wedding.

    I am thinking 3, but since we are doing other desserts I may only do 2

    Either one of two. It depends on whether we elope, and whether we opt for a cake. Cos I'm thinking chocolate covered strawberries would suit us.

    If we do opt for cake, we will make it ourselves, as we enjoy baking together.
