Much thought and consideration will likely go into choosing your perfect wedding-cake design, but have you contemplated the full presentation of your cake? The table that it’s placed on, the lighting that surrounds it, and the stand that holds it aloft will all contribute the ambience of your reception and its décor. Luckily, there are many different ways you can present your wedding cake, including using a trendy wooden cake stand.

From the handsomely carved to the rustically natural, wooden cake stands have become a go-to staple of beautiful cake presentations for both indoor and outdoor weddings. Take a look at the designs we gathered from real weddings below, and see if a tree-trunk disc, Hawaiian stand, or oversized sculpture fits into your vision for a nature-inspired cake presentation.
