How To Save Costs On Your Cake

Wedding Cakes Budgeting

When we went for a site visit to our resort (Hilton Rose Hall Resort in Montego Bay) a few months before our wedding, the coordinator showed us a book of cake examples included with our package-- lets just say we were less than impressed with the totally 80's looking designs! So we decided to order a plain white two-tier cake for our 70 guests and bring our own sugar flowers down to Jamaica.

Our colors were pink and green, so we ordered two large fuchsia tiger lilies from www.sugarflowershop.com (believe they were around $15-20 a piece and the owner, Amy, is wonderful to work with), green orchids seen here: WholesaleSugarFlowers.com - Detail (only $9.99 for 9 flowers!) and white lilies seen here: WholesaleSugarFlowers.com - Detail (same deal- $9.99). I also ordered some dusting powder for $2.99 ea. in pearl and green to give the orchids and lillies a sparkley wash WholesaleSugarFlowers.com - Detail

My mom transported the sugar flowers for us-- was able to bring them on board with no problem. She snuck away for a few minutes during the cocktail reception to arrange the sugar flowers on the cake and it turned out beautiful (see attached pic)! Since the two-tier cake was included with our package, we wound up spending around $60 total for a pretty cake that was exactly how I envisioned :-)

Hope this helps a few brides out there!


Thanks for the tips...very helpful. I think we may do the same to save on cake costs.
