Just a quick 'survey' question, I have my first wedding cake order where the customer has asked to supply their own topper. Normally I've been sorting top arrangements etc out so not 100% sure what's the best way to organise this with the client.
Do you normally ask for the topper to be given to you in advance, or get them to give you the specs (eg dimensions/weight etc) and then have them leave it at the venue for you to set up?
I'd prefer the first option, but not sure if that's normal for this?
AI always get the topper in hand as: a) I know my measurements will be correct b) one less thing for them to worry about on the day: "did you bring the cake topper?" ..."NO! I thought you had it!"
^^^ What he said!!
I used to get it ahead. Then I switched to letting it be the bride's responsibility. If they buy it from me, then of course I'll bring it. Other than that I just need dimensions and weight.
AThanks guys, my instinct was to ask for it in advance so I think I will stick with that for now as I think I'd just worry too much if I didn't see it beforehand!
