1. You’ll have visitors in town…Firstly, what do you plan to do in the week leading up to your wedding? Will you be working? Will you be taking a week off to prepare yourself and more importantly, who will be around to spend that time with? I met my future mother in Law for the first time three days before our wedding! Daniel is from Brazil and I hadn’t met any of his family in person yet, only on skype. My mother in Law arrived, other relatives arrived and I couldn’t spend any time with them because I was making our wedding cake!
Have you ever tried to deliver a wedding cake before?Wedding cakes don’t deliver themselves (although they should in my opinion!) If you’ve never delivered a wedding cake before, it can be nerve-racking. And as you probably aren’t going to deliver it yourself, you’ll have to rely on a poor friend or uncle to save the day with delivering it and making sure it’s all set up in the venue. It will of course, be fine, but I think it’s best left to a professional and then you don’t even need to think about it and can be sipping prosecco whilst being pampered, as you should be! Not watching out for every speed bump and pothole in the road yourself, or praying that the cake has made it to the venue in one piece knowing how bad Uncle Paul’s driving is!
This cake alone took three days leading up to our wedding to make. Not to mention the rest of the dessert table!
