One of the biggest expenses a bride can incur on her big day is for her cake. A cake can run anywhere between $500-$3000. That is money you could be using toward your honeymoon, upgrading your meal choice, or even on your flowers. If you are a bride that is willing to veer from the traditional, then this post is for you.
Snow Ball Cake
For all of you brides having a winter wedding, why not have a snowball cake display? The best way to display cakes likes this is on different tiers. These cakes are so simple to make that you and your bridesmaids can "DIT" the cakes the night before and make the tiered display on your wedding day. Just add a little sparkle dust on the table and perfection. Click here for the recipe.
A mini trifle display is another cute way to save money and satisfy the sweet tooth of your guests. Store bought pudding, pound cake, and cool whip along with some small cups purchased at your local restaurant wholesaler will save many, many dollars over a traditional wedding cake.

Milk and Cookies

I did this for an event I planned in 2009 at the Intercontinental Hotel in Boston. I had the milk and cookies passed at midnight to all of the guests. That same principle can be used by displaying the milk and cookies on a decorated table for all to eat. I love putting the milk in old milk bottles or milk bottle replicas. It will look so unique and your guests will love grabbing a treat as they head out to the dance floor.
