The bride I am making a wedding cake for wants her flavor to be marble. Should I use a traditional yellow cake or go for the white cake? Also, does anyone have/know of a good marble wedding cake recipe? Thank you!

I would do a white and chocolate marble for a wedding.

I would ask the bride if she has a preference.  When I make a marble cake, I just make up a recipe of chocolate and one of vanilla, some as always and marble the two together in the pans.  No special recipe.

To me a choco marbled cake is yellow and choco but there is no hard and fast rule.  It could be white.  When I make a fruit marble (cherry or say strawberry) I'd use white cake.    I'd probably ask the customer if they have an idea of what they want.  Here is a great recipe for wedding cakes.   When making a marbled cake, I'd  save out about 1/4 to 1/3rd of the batter and add cocoa powder to it for the choco marbling part.  If it's a fruit marble I'd just use a high quality jam and marble that through the white batter.
