When it comes to the list of things to buy for your wedding day, there can be a few items that can easily be overlooked until the last minute. One of those items is the cake stand.
Your cake designer might offer a cake stand rental for the big day, but that doesn’t always mean they will have a huge selection of cake stands from which to choose.
Many wedding cakes are pieces of art to be admired. Cake artists put a lot of time and effort into crafting your cake, and you may have put a good sum of your budget towards it as well. Make sure you give the cake a perfect stage to preform.
With that in mind, below is my list of cake stands that fit many different styles of weddings. Go ahead an try to choose just one of these beautiful cake platter to show off your wedding cake!
