Can you negotiate your wedding cake price?

In most cases negotiating a price for your wedding cake doesn't work...except for two circumstances.

As a case in point, if you price a wedding cake at a grocery store or a wedding cake bakery with written prices, most of the time their prices are set in concrete.

Most of the the bakers you'll visit have photos and displays of their previous wedding cakes.  Those particular wedding cakes have been previously priced based upon the experience of creating those certain cakes. 

They price them according to how much skill it takes, the time it takes and materials.

With that being said, there are two situations where you can attempt to negotiate a better price. 

First, anytime a wedding cake designer says they can create something “original” for you.

Second, when you bring in a picture from the web, a magazine, or maybe something you snapped at a bridal show.

In both of those cases, the wedding cake designer has to estimate their price. 

The fact they need to estimate the price of your wedding cake gives you a chance to negotiate the price. 

Let me and other brides know how it works out by posting your experience.
