Wedding Cake Stands: 19 Brilliant Ideas

Take your wedding cake up a level with our edit of the 19 best wedding cake stands! From chic glass creations to rustic wooden styles, you're sure to find a unique way to display your wedding day dessert here

lt's highly likely your wedding cake is a work of art on its own, but you can really enhance how it looks by displaying it on the right wedding cake stand. As well as fitting into the theme of your wedding, there are a couple of things you'll need to keep in mind when choosing the perfect wedding cake stand.

To start with, a tall, multiple layered bake is going to need support to avoid any toppling towers of cake and icing on the big day, so a wider base is essential.

If you're planning a lighter cake, such as a single sponge or a pretty pavlova, you can afford to opt for a daintier, pedestal-style wedding cake stand. Or perhaps you're decorating the dessert table with fun mini cupcakes? A traditional, afternoon tea tiered stand will work a treat. 

No matter what wedding cake you choose, you're going to need a wedding cake stand or two to display it on, so we've compiled an edit of the very best options available to buy now. From modern marble to rustic wood, there's a style to suit every kind of bake.
