26 Unique Wedding Cake Stands
When it comes to dessert tables, there are so many ways to surprise your guests with your treat selection. From cupcake towers and plates of decadent macarons to the focal point (the wedding cake!), there are endless dessert types to offer. While delicious goodies are always the highlight, a beautiful dessert display is always appreciated—especially when showing off your main confection. If you're searching for unique pieces to spruce up your cake and the surrounding spread, we suggest you consider an eye-catching cake stand.
While we still appreciate a classic silver or gold footed plate, the following slides are full of iterations that put a creative spin on tradition. From modern options with geometric elements to rustic stands made out of deer antlers, there is something out there for every couple. For proof, just look to this purple Flour and Flourish cake that sat on top of a thick tree trunk. We also love the gold "branches" that added a delicate touch to the otherwise masculine stand.
Although the following confections are beautiful in their own right, there is something to be said for the unique vessels they're placed on. The best part? There is a cake stand for every wedding type. Whether it is a petite gold tray for a classic event or blush pink glass stand for a romantic garden party, there are plenty of out-of-the-box options to choose from. Click through to discover some of the most unique cake stands from real weddings. By the time you are finished, you'll be inspired to ask your baker to consider a nontraditional stand for your big-day treat.
