Just a quick pic of our wedding "cake"
we did a cupcake tier instead and was really happy with it!
we ordered a mix of chocolate and vanilla cupcakes all with vanilla frosting from a local bakery that also rents out the tray. no this isnt a DIY project, but it would be if you have a helpful friend or family that loves to bake! you can rent the tier, buy one or i have seen people make them using antique plates and candlesticks ( click here for directions to make your own cake/cupcake stand).
