When it comes to planning a stress-free wedding, your wedding cake should be no exception. Designing your wedding cake can be an easy and enjoyable experience if you know where to start. With the right wedding cake designer, you can create a stress-free wedding cake design that will make your special day even more perfect. In this blog, I will explore how to plan for a stress-free wedding cake design process, how to choose the right wedding cake designer, and some tips on how to deal with wedding stress. So, let’s get started and make your wedding day one that you’ll remember forever.

As April is Stress Awareness Month, I thought I would write about how to have a stress-free wedding day.

Choosing your wedding cake should be one of the more enjoyable experiences in the process of planning the perfect day – and it doesn’t have to be stressful. With an organised and stress-free design process, you can be sure that the perfect cake will be found in no time at all.  Start by finding an experienced wedding cake designer – their experience will mean they know exactly what’s in style and what’s not. They will discuss every aspect of the cake with you – flavour, design, size and of course price! It’s important that you are both on the same page so that your perfect wedding cake is delivered on your big day. If you’re feeling overwhelmed or stressed about the cake design process, there is lots your designer can do to take that pressure away.

Make sure you have looked at the previous work of your chosen designer, check out their website, Pinterest and Instagram pages, to see if their style of cake matches what you are thinking of. Ask questions about delivery, ingredients and price to make sure that your wedding cake designer is within your budget – a reputable wedding cake designer will have a scale of prices on their website so that you have some idea of prices before you contact them.  They should also be organised with paperwork and make sure that you have a full set of Terms & Conditions before any payment is made so there is no miscommunication between you and the designer (you can read my Terms & Conditions of Sale here). Moreover, it’s important to always ask questions if anything is unclear or not as expected – having a great relationship with your wedding cake designer can help alleviate any stress leading up to the big day!

Share your Pinterest page with your cake designer.

Let them know the style and colour scheme of your wedding, show them your wedding invitation, swatches of your material choices, and other details about your day.  All of these will give your wedding cake designer a better idea about what kind of wedding cake would be best for you.  We’ll talk about flavours and design options that match up with the theme of your day so that the cake will be something you truly enjoy looking at, as well as eating!  I’ll make sure that you have an organised and stress-free design process so that all you have to worry about is looking forward to the big day!  I want to ensure that every step in this process is perfect; from choosing a flavour to picking a design that matches perfectly with the overall theme of your day!  I will create a beautiful wedding cake that will be just as special and unique as you two are!

If you do find yourself getting stressed about your wedding plans, there are many ways to help keep you grounded. Try having a weekend off from wedding planning, go out for a lovely walk together and get some fresh air, as soon as you find yourselves talking about the wedding, remind each other that this weekend is a “wedding-free zone”.

Speak with friends and family who’ve been through planning their own wedding; they’re often more than happy to offer helpful advice on how they dealt with their own pre-wedding stress levels. Additionally, look into holistic therapies such as meditation and yoga which can really help with relaxation both mentally and physically.
Finally, don’t forget that once your special day has been and gone; it’s something you’ll remember forever – so it’s important not to let stress take away from what should be an amazing experience!
