Okay, first off I want to say, that I know it's not my wedding, and they can do whatever they want to.  I'm just curious as to your opinion on this. 

My husband's brother is getting married in less than 2 months.  Well, we are just now getting details of when and where and what my husband and the boys are supposed to wear (they are in the wedding).  At first, they talked about her making the wedding cake.  I kept telling her that she wouldn't have time because last minute things always pop up.  Now, they are saying that they are going to go to Walmart and buy cheesecakes and decorate them, and that will be their wedding cake.  It just seems a bit odd to me to use cheesecakes for a wedding cake.  And also, it would probably be cheaper to let someone make their wedding cake for them.  My dad's friend is a caterer and is offering to make them a cake for a ridiculously low price, but they won't take her up on it.  I'm talking $100 or less for a wedding cake and groom's cake.  They are sticking to the cheesecake thing. 

What do you ladies think?  Is this strange or normal to you?

It is different.. but to me I like cheesecake better than regular cake and there is always so much cake left over I rarely see cheesecake left..

Don't complain about life if you're not willing to get off your ass and do something to change it.

I think if they are doing it because they both love Cheesecake, it's a cute an unique idea. If they are doing it cuz it's "easier" and they think cheaper, then yeah, it's dumb! A $100 Wedding Cake is basically FREE....So if it's not their love for Cheesecake fueling this....it's kinda silly!

Sometimes strange can be good, traditional can get boring.

Yumm I agree.  Cheesecake is a different choice, but its all up to what the bride and groom like.  I never thought of this because if I had I just might have gone this route too.  I am not a huge cake fan though.

It's becoming popular to have slices of various pies set out at each person's spot at the reception, so I don' t see anything wrong with using cheesecake.  I'm not sure I would decorate them like that--I would probably slice them and serve them w/berries or chocolate sauce and have a slice at each spot.

I think they both do like cheesecake, but I believe their reasoning behind doing that as their wedding cake is that they think it will be easier and cheaper. 

I forgot to mention also that this is an evening wedding.  7pm is when this wedding takes place.  I've always heard that a late wedding like that means that it is a formal wedding. 

I agree, it is different, but I also don't like cheesecake.  Guess it's a good thing I will be going into the hospital 2 days later to have a baby.  I may not even be able to go, although I really would like to be there.
