Wedding Budget Tip #48:

Consider a dessert buffet instead of a fancy cake.

If you're not a fan of cake or you just can't stomach the price tag of going with a professional baker, perhaps you'd rather opt for a dessert buffet! You can easily snag a bunch of tasty treats and display them on a table in a nice way for a super savvy price.

Are you and your fiancé more into cookies than cake? Hit up your local Costco Store to buy a variety of fresh baked cookies in bulk! You can display them creatively for a cute visual impact.

Is cheesecake more your thing? Choose a variety of cheesecakes for your dessert. This is more likely to be cost effective for an intimate wedding.

Maybe you're more into donuts? A donut cake is super adorable and tasty, and super cost-friendly.
