Using cupcakes instead of wedding cakes may be viewed as somewhat untraditional. However, if you are pooling your wedding planning ideas on a tight budget, one of the best ways to exercise your frugality is through a wedding cake. In fact, you can save lots of money by choosing a budget-conscious cake.

Just know that you can still have a stylish wedding even without a multi-tiered wedding cake.

It is not supposed to be taken home because it symbolizes the newlyweds’ sweet gesture to the guests. Thanking them for their presence in the ceremony, but very few couples practice this good gesture, instead they brought home the entire cake after the ceremony.
