Booking Process for Wedding Cakes: To begin, I'll provide an estimated price based on the approximate number of guests. You can also refer to my pricing guide for a general indication of costs. If you have a specific budget in mind, feel free to share it with me, and I'll take it into consideration while designing your cake. At this point, I'll also provide a delivery quote.
Securing your wedding date: You can reserve your date in advance by paying a £100 booking fee. This fee will be deducted from your final cake balance and ensures that the date is reserved for you in my calendar. This way, you can continue planning your wedding without worrying about losing your preferred cake designer. Cake design details aren't needed at this point. It's worth noting that most wedding cake orders are placed 1-2 years in advance, though there are occasions where short-notice requests can be accommodated.
Option One: Once you've secured your date, start gathering your inspiration. To ensure your cake aligns with your evolving ideas and vision, I recommend beginning the cake design process around six months before your wedding date. It's essential to have confirmed elements such as a color palette, flowers, dresses, and decor. However, if you're ready to start designing earlier, feel free to do so, and I'll provide a helpful Questionnaire/Design checklist. Once completed and emailed back, the design process can begin, whether through emails, video, or an in-person design appointment.
Option Two: If you prefer finalising your design before securing your date, I'll follow up with a Questionnaire/Design checklist to gather your wedding details. Using this information, I'll create a personalised design proposal. A video call can be arranged at this stage.
