What if I told you that you could get a gorgeous and classy-looking wedding cake for just $50? You’d probably look at me like I have two heads, but luckily, I have the photo to prove it.
A DIY Instagrammer, Jessica of @cottagefarmhouse, posted about her brother Jeremy’s extremely frugal wedding. Jeremy and his wife Gosia wanted to save as much money as possible, so they didn’t really have a flower budget or a cake budget to speak of.
Instead of shelling out hundreds of dollars for a wedding cake, Jeremy and Gosia made one themselves with the help of Jessica and a pastry chef relative.
They bought two sheet cakes from Costco, then resized them and shaped them into tiers.
Then they re-frosted the cakes and covered them with $10 worth of flowers from Trader Joe’s.
The result is stunning and definitely looks like it’s worth more than $50! Costco and Trader Joe’s are just the best.
