Should Wedding Cakes be Tiered?

Should wedding cakes always be tiered in your opinion? Does taste matter as much as aesthetics to you?

In my opinion, taste matters way more than looks.

Taste is super important, and was the biggest factor in picking our wedding cake. We did end up with it tiered, though. The most important thing if you're picking the cake for your wedding, is that it's the one you'll be happiest with. It can taste like anything you want and be shaped like anything you want, because it's *your* wedding!

No, I think taste is the most important part.

Why do taste and aesthetics have to be mutually exclusive? My cake had multiple tiers and was incredibly delicious.

I think it's up to the couple. I'm probably going to get a small tiered one though.

We did both, a tiered cake and a sheet cake, both were delicious and everyone was happy!

My husband and I are really foodies so taste was more important to us the looks. Plus we only had 30 people. No need for a tiered wedding cake

Taste is most important, but I have seen the husband's cake has been a sheet cake so the main one can be too. Just won't look as nice.

Your wedding, your choice.

We had a tiered cake. It was pretty and my mom had a fit because several of the tiers were chocolate. "Wedding cakes are supposed to be white cake." She said to me, very upset about how "nontraditional" I wanted to be. She believes in "traditions" that make no sense like "never wear white after Labor Day" and gets upset if people wear black or white to other people's weddings. She got upset with my brother becaues he and his wife had a Black and White wedding. All the dresses were white with black sashes, including my daughter's (the flower girl) I thought it was a beautiful wedding. My mother insisted, "Only the bride should wear white and no one in the wedding party nor any of the guests should wear black." I don't see the point of all this stuff. Seeing as ALL my formal dresses are black anyway. It's the color I look the best in. I have no problem wearing a black dress to a wedding.

I really don't think the layers matter its what it tastes like. My wedding cake was a sheet cake that I thought was pretty, I wanted a tiered cake but they costed way more then I could afford. I mean my wedding was a hole in the wall cheap wedding that probably should have NEVER happened.

Tasty and pretty - and tiers are a pain in the ass to work with. I'd rather get funky cake stands at different heights. Or have a ton of tiny square cakes with the words "Eat Me" on them. Or just have a bunch of awesome cheesecakes ...

*obviously not going to get married again*

And, Camo, mine was a cheapass wedding, too, that shouldn't have happened to begin with (wrong guy, of course). To surviving all that crap -

I like the look of the tiered cakes and that would be my choice. I have been to weddings where they served wedding cupcakes and that was different but fine.
