How to choose the perfect wedding cake stand depends on several factors that you must consider before setting your mind on a specific model.
Here’s what you should be taking into consideration:
Choose a cake stand that will complement your wedding theme and in a size that is at least equal or a bit larger than the bottom of the cake board.
Will your wedding cake be on the heavy side? If so, your stand should be sturdy and made in wood, metal or iron. You’ll find Styrofoam stands and flimsy acrylic pedestal trays that look attractive yet they’re not strong enough to support heavy cakes.
A round cake tray is perfectly suitable to display on a round table during the reception. A square or rectangular stand is more visually appealing displayed on a long table.
Keep in mind that your baker will provide a board beneath your cake. You can simply display the cake as is but a cake stand will beautify the overall look of your cake table.
