Does this happen often? I did a search online and found articles telling brides to say "party" instead of "wedding". I just had this happen to me. I asked more than once what kind of party they were hosting and I got "cocktail party". Well low and behold it's a wedding! Found out when I delivered it. Nice.

They ordered a cupcake tower and my pricing wasn't any different so they didn't save any money but I would have done more to create an impressive display for them. What she chose didn't even look weddingy and I feel that looks bad on me. The more I think about it the more upset I get.

Thanks- Just feeling the need to vent.

No, don't waste time feeling sad becuse she didn't tell you - at the end of the day, she got what she wanted - her choice - her Wedding. As long as she was happy with what you delivered - chalk it up to another happy customer.

Not all Brides are into the Fluff and Bubble that other Brides require.

Some bakers do charge more for weddings and have a rationale for it: often a tasting, more consultations, etc., and may do it to avoid having to a la carte things like gum paste flowers, bling, too.
Others feel that it balances out without having different pricing--I'm one of those, but I don't do tastings or consultations, either.

In some ways, it was their loss for not telling you. If they got what they asked for, then no one can fault you.

I don't know about you, but my oven didn't come with a truth detector OR a mind reading function--LOL.

I don't charge more for wedding vs party cakes, so it doesn't effect anything from my end. Don't let it bother you. She was happy, you got paid, win, win.

My prices are the same for party and wedding. The cake doesn't care.

Fluff and Bubble - thats my description of when a Bride loves the whole bridal theme thing happening.

Like a kitchen sink overflowing with Fluff and Bubbles.........and you just can't see the plug. ....... lolllllllllll

My opinion is - a cake is a cake - what occassion one wants it for is thier choosing.
