For someone who’s in the process of planning their wedding, I can assure you that I’ve stared at hundreds of wedding cake images over the past nine months.

I now have a pretty good idea of what I want (“I” being the operative word since my fiancé would be just as happy if we have a five-tiered stand of mouth watering, fresh off the grill nyama choma. Not happening.) and have pretty much closed that chapter of wedding planning.

Word of advice: the more you stare at options, the more confusing it gets. So don’t be too hard on yourself and bombard yourself with too much research/options!
