Wedding Budget Tip #47:

Go for buttercream frosting over fancy fondant designs. Tastes better anyway!

If you're looking for another way to cut down on the costs for your big day, this one is simple! Just choose buttercream frosting over fondant for your wedding cake!

Often times, fondant can be much more expensive because it's used to create ornate designs and elaborately decorated cakes. Buttercream is often cheaper and let's be honest… it tastes better, too!

So save your wallet a few bucks and save your taste buds from the cardboard-like taste of fondant and choose buttercream frosting for your wedding cake. Choosing a simple wedding cake design will also save you a few bucks, as will purchasing a grocery store wedding cake.  You could also consider the wedding cake switcheroo — always a clever idea and a great way to save money on your wedding cake.

Want to be really savvy? Choose a simple wedding cake with buttercream frosting from a grocery store! The budget savvy wedding cake trifecta! 🙂 Or heck… go SUPER savvy and bake your own wedding cake! Don't want to serve cake at your wedding? Check out these wedding cake alternatives.
