“If you’re getting married soon, I have a budget-saving hack that helped me save hundreds of dollars on my wedding cake,” a woman who goes by Kaitlyn Lauren said in a video she shared online.
She went on to reveal that she ordered two plain circular cakes with white icing from Sam’s Club for $40 each.
Kaitlyn then stacked them on each other and placed some decorative flowers on them and voilà: her wedding cake was complete.
In the comment section, Kaitlyn added that she then bought 30 Sam’s Club cupcakes and “a couple dozen” doughnuts to serve to guests in addition to the cake.
“We had more than enough dessert!” she exclaimed.
Lauren’s wedding day hack had viewers thrilled, with a person who claimed to be a professional cake decorator writing they approved of the money-saving trick.
“Everyone should have the best option that works for their wedding,” they stated.
“I’m pretty sure when my sister got married they were selling 3 tier cakes and she got two of them and we even had leftovers,” a second approving viewer claimed.
Another bride who claimed she did the same thing wrote: “We did this too!!!
“The cake was good and super affordable compared to even the cheapest quotes we got.”
Similarly, another bride previously revealed she thinks wedding cakes are a waste of money altogether and regrets buying her $1800 one.
“Nobody ate it, including ourselves. Don’t spend money on it.
“Serve a late-night instead that people will actually eat in the last hour when they are tired from dancing,” she recommended.
