    We’re having a small cake so we can cut it for pictures. We’re also having a dessert table.

    We plan to do one big 5 tier cake to feed 200 guests. Haven't decided flavors yet, but leaning towards vanilla cake with a fruity filling, chocolate drizzle, and fresh berries since it is a summer wedding.

    I currently had an idea of 4 tiers. The top one we would take home for traditional reasons of eating it after a year. The other three would be for guests to eat. I may knock that down to three tiers though since we're doing a semi large grooms cake as well. I may buy some cookies for those who don't want cake.

    Zero.
    Realised it is a lot cheaper to have 4 cakes next to one another than having them tiered

    Small, one tier for cake cutting ceremony. Then dessert bar with about 250-300 pieces, for a guest list of 100.

    Just a small cutting cake, and 5 flavors of cupcakes for guests. But our cutting cake is our favorite flavor of cupcake from the bakery Smiley smile
