For most people a wedding cake is more than just a cake. It is as big a part of the day as the dress or the centerpieces on the tables. It is something that can be customized to just about any desire.
So don't think that you have to pick one from a case in a bakery or a book in a reception hall. You can get tons of ideas from wedding cakes videos online and come up with your own idea of what the cake should be. You can see ones with different colors, shapes, sizes, and get different cake decorating ideas.
Take these ideas to the reception hall or bakery and tell them exactly what you want. Bring your laptop with you and you can even show them the videos you found to illustrate what you are looking for.
You do not have to be a world class pastry chef to know what looks and tastes good and what you want at your wedding. Compare what you see in these videos with each other and do a little mixing and matching. It is your wedding so you might as well do it the way you really want.
