    Also get the videographer :)

    100% agree!! You won't regret it! I love watching our wedding back and seeing the little bits of the day I missed. If you're in the East, I highly recommend yourweddingvideo.ie :)

    Does your baker usually attend the venue and assemble the cake for you?

    Ours will anyway. I think it can depend how far they'd have to travel to the venue though. So always important to check! I wouldn't like the idea of one of the wedding party having to transport the cake, it could end up a disaster.

    We had some leftover wedding cake samples from the freezer last night :P They were frozen for about a month or so and held up surprisingly well! You'd couldn't even tell that they had been frozen, they still tasted fresh and no issues with texture, frostbite etc.

    Most bakers will freeze sponges and buttercream, both thaw really well and is really convenient when making a wedding cake.

    I made my sister's wedding cake including a separate slab of chocolate biscuit cake for the next day too. It was really popular and I got more compliments for that even though it was much easier than the main cake.

    Ok so probably better to choose a baker close to the venue. I wouldn’t like to put the responsibility of transport and safe asssembly on anyone, or even myself.

    Yeah we're getting married in Dublin, but I was seriously considering a baker based in Portlaoise for a while! In the end though it was much more straightforward to go with the person recommended by the venue who's more local.

    Glad to hear that, chocolate biscuit cake hasn't gotten much love on this thread :P

    We're pretty sure now that we're going to go with 2 tiers: chocolate biscuit cake (with a bit of marshmallow, twix and maltesesers thrown in) and lemon drizzle cake :)

    Thanks a million :) It's all systems go now! You'd think with the extra year to plan, we'd be well on top of things... but not a hope :P

    We've the cake sorted now at least though :D
