    We had a basic 3 tier venue supplied cake Smiley smile that wasn't a huge concern for us.

    Our brides cake will be four tiers, with the bottom being fake, and then the groom will have his own cake!

    We kept adding tiers because we couldn't decide on which cake flavor we liked the best! In the end we're going to have 5 flavors!

    Just two. Partly for cost, partly because we had a dessert table... and yet, it seems not everyone got cake? But.. DH had two slices... eh, we got the anniversary cake as part of the package, so whatever!

    We are looking at around 200-300 guests so we went with a four tier cake. It'll be very simple with a little bit of greenery running down the side of it. And then we are doing different flavored cup cakes!
