A unique wedding cake is the subtle, but wow-worthy wedding element you’ve been looking for. A wedding cake is a longstanding tradition dating back to the roman and medieval times. It represents good luck and prosperity in a marriage. As time has evolved, so has the creativity that comes along with wedding cake designs. Nowadays, couples are choosing bold colors, geometric designs, and even letting their personality shine through their wedding cake .

How Far in Advance Should I Put in My Wedding Cake Order?
Thames shares, “Our couples are currently choosing their cake at least six months to a year in advance.
