Wedding Tip #9 - Wedding Cake or Dessert Timeline | Lucky in Love Blog

Advice to help you through the wedding planning process

 

Wedding Tip #9 - Wedding Cake or Dessert Timeline | Lucky in Love Blog

Wedding Cake or Dessert Timeline ~ Book your cake or dessert caterer around 6 months prior to the big day.  This should be after such big decisions as what venue, season and décor theme you want.

Make sure your cake will compliment the rest of the day. Keep in mind the busiest wedding months are June through September, and December. At ordering time you need only an approximate number of guests, then confirm the number two to three weeks before your wedding day.
