Cupcakes are very versatile; they make perfect wedding favors as well as the ideal alternative to the traditional wedding cake when displayed on a cupcake tower. This is the perfect option for those on a budget as you can cover both your wedding favors and your cake with one cost.

Brides who want to maintain tradition will be pleased to know that cupcake suppliers can also offer the option of having either an iced sponge cake or a giant cupcake as a cutting cake so the couple can still have that all important traditional photo.

This works particularly well when you use one of the many display stands available to hire, when your cutting layer can form the uppermost tier on the stand.

The stand you choose, as well as the design of the flower cupcakes will be dictated by the theme of your reception decor. For a contemporary look, choose a lighted, transparent stand while those looking for a more vintage or whimsical feel could opt for a wired stand like those used for a garden party.

As well as keeping costs down by doubling as the wedding favor, cupcakes are ideal for those planning a smaller, more intimate gathering for their wedding party. Stands come in a range of sizes and tiers meaning you can create a stunning display with anywhere from 12 to over a hundred cupcakes!

Flavored cupcakes such as vanilla, chocolate or even raspberry sponge are ideal if you plan on skipping dessert and serving up your cupcakes right after dinner. Your guests can choose their favorite flavor and design straight from the display!
