Cupcakes are now nearly as popular at weddings as traditional cakes. There are a lot of different reasons for this. They are much more affordable because they can be baked and decorated by the family, rather than a professional. Cupcakes are much easier to plan since you bake as many as there are people who RSVP’d. They also are much easier to work with since transporting a large cake is extremely difficult. All of these things combined have made cupcake stands a very hot item, and in this post I want to help you figure out which one is best for your wedding, and offer some tips on decorating it.
The first step in picking out a cupcake stand is always figuring out how big it needs to be. Stands come in sizes that range from a dozen cupcakes, all the way up to hundreds. The layout of the place that you are to be wed at will also play a role in this because if you don’t have a lot of space you may need to opt for one large stand, instead of multiple smaller ones.
Wedding cupcake stands that aren’t designed to hold a specific number of cupcakes are the best choice because they are normally much easier to decorate and are more versatile. Wire stands look great, but they tend to be more difficult to work with.
Cupcake stands can be decorated any number of ways. One of the easiest is to get fabric that matches the wedding’s colors and cut pieces out to drape on the stand. Highlights can be created with contrasting ribbon or flowers. Many people will decorate theirs in a similar fashion as the head table’s centerpiece.
There are a lot of different styles of cupcake stands, but only a few work really well for a wedding. The key points that you are looking for are size, shape, and ease of decoration. Getting all three of those will make sure that you have the perfect stand for your wedding!
