I have been invited to a wedding in July. I asked the bride where she is registered and she said that she isn't. She said that there will be a box for money at the event, but that if people want to bring food, she'd love that. I happen to bake, and offered to make her some fairytale cupcakes to match her theme. The only thing I realize now is - how many do I have to make?? I was expecting to make 3 dozen but she said she is expecting approximately 60 guests. Do I need to make 70 cupcakes? 60? What's the etiquette here? I will be providing a display stand for them so I have to decide now how big to make it to hold all the cupcakes. Also, I have to order the wafer paper butterflies for them and need to know how many to buy.
Oh - more details about the wedding - there will be food catered but it is not at a hall. it is at a lodge by a lake, and the invitation said that you can swim if you like and there are hiking trails near by. So it's probably outdoorsy. Dress code is "nice party," not upscale wedding. The wedding cake will be shaped like a fairytale castle and be made by her mother and another guest.
