2. Let the wedding cake match up your style

You have the wedding dress, the wedding ring, and the wedding theme that reflect your style. Don't you want your wedding cake to reflect the same lifestyle too? Of course, you would. 

So, keep your wedding style in your mind while buying a wedding cake. You can think of a round cake mounted with buttercream frosting or the one wrapped in fondant coating. But, make sure you do not cross your budget lines. Because each style comes with additional costing and you should be ready to bear the expenses.

3. Online review and word mouth

No matter how beautiful and grand wedding cake you order for your wedding reception, if it's not good in taste, your guests won't be loving it at all. At one point, you can think of compromising with the looks, not with the quality. You can take help from a few online portals and get some reviews from there.   It will help you choose the right baker delivering service in your area.

Another thing you can do is that you can take help from some word mouth. How about asking your friend or colleague, "have you tried desserts or something from XYZ baker’s shop"? In such way, you will get some helpful reviews from trusted persons around you.

4. Don’t forget the display factor

This is another factor that can add or steal some effects from your wedding cake is, the Cake Display. How you display a beautifully decorated wedding cake in front of your guest, matters a lot. 

The placement of the wedding cake depends on your wedding style. For example, if you are having an outdoor wedding, you will be placing the cake on a table in open. In this case, you will focus on lighting, table décor, and flowers. In another case, if you are planning to get married in an indoor resort or banquet, the wedding cake will not require lighting and so much décor because the venue staff will do that at their end. But, yes you should focus on whether the cake display is matching your wedding theme or not.

5. Surprise your guests with deserts
