Previously I posted Wedding Cake Display Ideas – Part One, and I discussed several ideas and suggestions for displaying a wedding cake. The ideas featured a variety of tablecloths and suggestions of unique furniture and other items to be used instead of the more traditional cake table.
In this post I will show several different types of cake stands from simple styles made in wood or glass to more elaborate styles made in silver or gold and embellished with crystals or pearls. At the end of the post I will offer ideas featuring some less traditional and more unusual items that can be used for cake stands and these suggestions can bring a distinct and unique style to the wedding reception.
Traditional wedding cake stands
Traditional wedding cake stands are available in an endless variety of styles. The most popular styles to display multi-layer stacked wedding cake are available in silver or gold. Some styles are plain, embossed or embellished with crystals or pearls. Some styles separate the layers of a wedding cake and display them on multi-level cake stands.

Unusual wedding cake stands
In this section I will discuss unusual wedding cake stand using some unexpected items. By using a unique item to display a wedding cake it can add an interesting element to a reception display. A personal item, perhaps an antique or vintage item from a relative, can also be used and this item can add a sentimental element to a wedding cake display.
