I had another MP bride send me some basic cake photos. PM me and I can send it to you. It looks like you can have any cake made as well...but the quality isn't the same since they don't have practice with the different designs. also, cutierose recommended that you bring a cake stand, fyi

It seems most complaints of MP are about the cakes. It seems they often come out uneven or melting. In the end, a minor detail that it seems most brides are laughing about.

I've heard people get chocolate, and vanilla with strawberries, but I think a few brides even special requested their favorites (like cheesecake or flan-type) and they obliged (hopefully that wasn't another hotel!).

You can get different flavors for different tiers too if you're going with a larger cake.

That is exactly what I'm planning on doing. I did like one of the cakes that MP had on their wedding website but it wasn't on any of the optional service photos my WC emailed me. I copied the photo and I'm going to send it to my WC to see if she can make it happen. I really don't want to customize it too much since I have seen some really bad cakes out there wherein they tried to have the cakes almost custom-made.

Post a pic! I'd LOVE to see!
I think I'm going go to do a cake upgrade since it's my wedding, but know a lot of it might not get eaten since there are desserts at the reception dinner too.

How big do you think the complimentary cake would be if I'm having 30-35 people? It's hard not to envision a tiered cake for the big day, and would be a bit disappointed if I got a Safeway-style slab cake.

If you have about 30-35 people, I think they'll probably go with a bigger sized cake- maybe three tiers. You could even add an extra tier for a certain price. I'm not sure, I heard it was around 150$ for an extra tier.

This is the cake I'm going to go with. I saw this on the MP website and I fell in love with it. I'm asking them to use green cymbidium orchids (I got the Emerald package) instead of the white ones.

Gorgeous! I love that it has embossed leaves and green orchids are so beautiful. I'm considering using one for my hair but am so undecided on hair, veil, flower combos! Who know weddings could be so tough? The lighter green orchid would so such a chic accent to an emerald wedding, good call.

 

The three tier is beautiful. I just want AT LEAST a two tier, and if they could do that for free I'd be in there like swimwear.

 

You only have a couple more months to go, you must be so excited!

I know. Can't wait to get on the plane. It was really fun planning the entire thing- and I'm so glad I didn't turn into a bridezilla! Having the WCs really helps.
With about 30-35 people, they'll probably give you the three tier complimentary cake. I'm expecting that many people too.
For hair, I'm just going to d a simple updo with a tiara. The gown is really elaborate and I think adding a veil would just be overkill.
If you're going to do flowers and a veil, why not try this one? I got this photo from theknot.com

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
