Check out the ordering process for how to order a wedding cake with me. This guide will lay out the steps for how we will work together to design and execute your beautiful (and delicious) wedding cake. From concept to delivery Luisa will work with you to create a personal and professional ordering process for your wedding cake.
At Love From Luisa, each wedding cake is a one-of-a-kind design made especially for your big day. If you are looking for a custom, bespoke wedding cake in Sussex follow the simple steps below to wedding cake bliss.
We deliver cakes in Brighton, Brighton and Hove, East Sussex, West Sussex, Kent, London and everywhere in between.
1 Check a Date
Each wedding cake order is a labour of love. We take on a limited amount of wedding cake bookings per year to ensure both quality and personal service. This means I have limited availability for wedding cakes each year. We can get booked out anywhere from six months to two years in advance so the first step is to fill out the form to enquire about a date.
Once I take a wedding booking for a big event I will be on hand for any queries, questions and amendments to your order. This means that you get a truly personal experience.
Every year there are dates that become available so even if you are looking for a last-minute wedding cake do get in touch and we can check our availability for you.
Talk to Luisa: if I have the date of your event available I will give you a rough quote for your cake based on the information provided. We will then schedule a quick chat on the phone to get acquainted and discuss your needs and how we can work together. This is an opportunity to discuss any ideas we might have for your cake. And of course your delicious flavour choices.
3 Get a formal quotation
I will then follow this up with an email summary of what we discussed so that we have a written record of all of the design aspects and plans that we make for your wedding cake. This will include a detailed breakdown of your wedding cake cost.
4 Agree the design
Once we have decided on the design and quotation for your wedding cake I will email the final order confirmation, invoice and cake contracts for you to check over and sign before you pay a deposit.
My terms and conditions will be emailed at this time but you can ask for them at any point in the ordering process.
5 Pay the deposit
A minimum £150 deposit is required to secure the date of your event.
The remainder of the final amount is payable no later than six (6) weeks prior to the delivery of your wedding cake.
If you have any questions or need to make changes to your cake Luisa will be available for all enquiries. Luisa is always happy to help if you have any concerns leading up to the delivery of your cake.
6 Wedding Cake Tasting (optional)
Although a wedding cake that reflects your individual style as a couple is crucial, we also know that the most important part of your wedding cake is the taste. For this reason, I offer optional wedding cake taster boxes for you to sample 6 of my delicious flavours.
Wedding cake sample boxes are £28 + £18 for special next-day delivery and packaging we send tasting boxes in the post with special next-day delivery, for you to try in the comfort of your own home. We make wedding cake taster boxes on specific dates throughout the year. Usually during the off-peak season; November – May.
7 Arrange delivery
If you require delivery to your venue we will arrange delivery times with your wedding planner or wedding venue. I will take at least two contacts for the wedding day itself should anything not go to plan.
This means that you can rest assured that you can relax on the big day knowing that your wedding cake will be delivered and set up without a hitch.
