Choosing Wedding Cake Size

Wedding Cake

This is the time of the year to get married. In fact, wedding can be anytime of the year but planning should be a year in advance.

Planning for a Wedding Cakes

Do you know how to order a wedding cake?

Do you have any idea?

What is your budget?

What type of cake do you prefer? Traditional?

Let me give you one idea at a time.

How to decide on the size or the number of tier for your cake? If you are planning to help in wedding arrangement, this is an important thing to know. First, estimate the number of your guest. Is your guest coming alone or you are inviting Mr & Mrs. If yes, then, there will be two person in one invites. Let say, you distribute 100 pieces of wedding cards. Do check this site for beautiful handmade design wedding cards. Then your guest will be 200. Well, sure not everybody will be able to attend you wedding even though you wish all will be there to witness your joyous occasion. You can deduct 20% attendance. So, it will be 160. We just assume some you your guest will not bring friend, friends or family members as it does happens when four persons come instead of two.

To prepare for 160 people, you will need a cake or cakes that can serve everybody with a handsome serving.

Check this chart: I have compared few books to come up with my own charts

Round Tier Number of Serving

6 inches 8-10

8 inches 12-16

9 inches 16-22

10 inches 23-34

12 inches 36-48

14 inches 47-66


6 inches 10-12

8 inches 12-25

10 inches 25-36

14 inches 50-70

So, to serve 160 guest, 4 tier cakes = 6, 10, 12, 14 inches

I hope this helps.
