Okay, so my fiance and I decided we want to do cupcakes for all of our guests (in lieu of sheet cake or decorated cake) due to budget restraints.
We would still like to have a small cake to cut/eat/save for our 1 year anniversary/etc. though. I've seen many cupcake weddings that have a one-tier small cake up top, then cupcakes surrounding it. In that situation, what part would bride and groom cut? If the top was cut and eaten, then what would be saved for a year? My fiance suggested we do a small 2-tier cake for us and the bridal party (only 6 people total), then provide cupcakes for the guests. That way, we'd have an uneaten top tier to save but would still have a nice cake to cut.
Is that a bad idea? Or is this commonly done? Any other suggestions??
