Wedding Cake Timeline
Below is a timeline to help you know when to book your wedding cake and when to arrange your tasters boxes etc.
It is best to book 18 months in advance, to avoid being disappointed.
Once your date is secured, we will contact you to arrange pre-ordering your Taster Box. This normally happens anywhere from 6-8 months before your wedding day
Leanna, the Owner of Violet & Ivy Cake Design, will contact you 4 weeks before your wedding to finalise your design, flavours, delivery, your final invoice etc.
Frequently Asked Questions
Due to restrictions, if you need to postpone your wedding date due to the global pandemic, please contact us at the earliest possible time. The sooner we know, the better the chance of having availability for your new date. If we cannot accommodate your new date, we are happy to give you back your save the date charge. Consultations will only happen at a time that the government guidelines allow. We aim to be as flexible and understanding throughout the next couple of years. For now, we will be keeping in touch with all couples as much as possible. If you must cancel due to other reasons, our no refund policy in still in place.
How do I order a wedding cake?
We recommend that you inquire about your desired dates as early as possible. Summer & Fall dates can book up very quickly and are often booked more than a year in advance. Please message us as soon as possible for availability. Once we have confirmed your date is available, we can discuss initial design details in order to give you an estimate price. Don’t worry if you are unsure of the design, as we can go through general pricing and secure your date before we have a finalized design for your wedding cake. We can secure your wedding date with a $100.00 Save the date retainer; this is non-refundable and non-transferable.
Do you provide cake stand rentals?
Yes! We offer stand rentals for our wedding cakes. We also offer stand rentals for our dessert tables, but only if Violet & Ivy Cake Design is providing all of the desserts and doing the complete table set-up. There is a small rental fee and a security deposit for each stand. All depends on availability – please ask for details. Stands must be returned (or collected) undamaged within 5 days of your wedding date, then the security deposit will be returned.
