After all the effort that you put into choosing the perfect wedding
cake and all the
time and hard work that the cake designer puts into creating it
– the cake should not be left to sit by itself to one side
of the hall. This magnificent labor of love should be placed in
such a way that all eyes are drawn to it. Naturally is it wise to
consult with the reception hall management as to the best place
for displaying the wedding cake. As they are accustomed to setting
up weddings they will have plenty of great suggestions for maximizing
the effect of your wedding cake.
One idea is to have the cake placed near the entrance to the
hall where every guest will have to pass it before entering. Another
great idea – and one that is commonly used – is to
set it up just in front of the head table so that all eyes are
on the couple and the cake. Another idea is for it to be placed
just to the side of the dance floor – although should you
have a careless dancer on the floor, it just might spell disaster.
Another idea is to have directly on the head table. Something
else that some couples opt for is to have the cake brought out
just before the cake cutting ceremony and placed in the middle
of the dance floor for all to see.
Whatever you decide just make sure that the table on which the
cake rests is subdued and does not detract from the cake itself.
A light coloured table cloth and some flowers are more than enough
accents to off-set something as grand as a wedding cake.
In the end, once all the pictures have been snapped, the cake
sliced and the fun over – everyone will always remember
the way you looked and how fabulous your cake was.
