    We have three tiers only because of the head count... I didn't really have a preference otherwise.

    2 tiers with two different flavors. I'm stoked for the cake.

    We are having a 2-tier cake with chocolate and carrot cake for us to eat/cut/save, and then we are have 3 flavors of sheet cake for guests - chocolate, carrot cake, and pink lemonade.

    We're doing a small couple's cake with a dessert table, so probably just one

    1 tier because it’s just for us to cut, we have a desert table with a wide variety of options so there’s something for everyone!

    Wanted 3 tiers, ended up getting 2 tiers + mini cupcakes. Couldn’t believe how expensive cake was, with most places quoting over $7/slice

    I think 3 is a nice size/height! Smiley laugh

    Only 1 tier. It'll just be a simple turtle cheesecake and then we'll have a dessert table for guests. We didn't really want a cake but wanted to do the traditional cake cutting.

    Not doing a tiered cake. My favorite cake ever is a cream cheese pound cake by a lady at my church. We’re just having enough cakes needed for everyone, and serve with whipped cream and strawberries. I’m not a big cake and icing fan and I’ve honestly never been a fan of most wedding cakes I’ve eaten.

    One or two, if we opt for cake. But I like the idea of a chocolate fountain... so it might end up being that instead.

    Zero tiers because we are not having a wedding cake at all.
