One is I am thinking about purchasing the cupcake tower. It's expensive so I want to know if anyone has one and how the feel about it. Second question is if she decides on a fresh flower topper do I ask her to have her florist put it together? I don't want to buy the flowers and arrange them too. I understand that would be factored into the price but I honestly feel like I am nervous enough. I don't want to do the flowers, what would you all do?

I am a Florist and dabble in cake decorating. Here are some things to consider with putting fresh flowers on top of a cake. One is the type of flowers, will it hold up in any heat. Fresh flowers need to be wired and taped on the day of the wedding. I will call the cake decorater and we discus delivery of the cake topper or she will pick it up. I need to keep in mind the reception will be a few hours later so the fresh flowers must still look pristine when the bride and groom cut the cake....nothing worse than wilted flowers in their professional photos.
Fo my daughters wedding cake I did a mix of fresh orchids and gum paste roses. She was married in the Australian heat and high humidity, it was the gum paste roses I had problems with.
