Wedding Cake Delivery

Often when we site down with newlyweds the most popular question asked is “How many servings should I order for my expected guest list?” It’s important for you to provide enough dessert for your guests but do you anticipate for one per invitee or more? Will everyone eat cake? What if your guests eat more than one dessert? All of these questions are valid while making imperative decisions and they can be very stressful.

While planning your big day you’ll soon learn not every guest will make an appearance at your wedding and it can be overwhelming deciding on a final number which will fit within your budget.
