I have a question for those of you who deliver cakes on a regular basis: Do you "dress and act the part"???? When delivering the cake, I mean??? I went to a wedding yesterday, and it was the wedding where everything was done backwards. VERY long story short, the wedding and reception were in the same place and most of the guests were there, in fact the couple have already gotten married when the cake finally arrived. O_OYup, the cake got there late. So the baker/decorator was dressed in jeans, sandals and a t-shirt. And she had to fix the cake on site (the top got messed up). So while the photographer was taking the pictures, and the guests were mingling, this lady kept coming and going fixing the top of the cake. I don't know about the dressing part, the times I had had to deliver a cake, since I am part of the party itself I am already dressed. (and most of the cake is already done and ready by then, if anything I have to assemble it on site). And for the most part I always try to be one of the first people in there so I can put it together BEFORE the other guests arrive. I am curious about what any of you have to say because my hubby thought it was very unprofessional of the baker/decorator. Not only getting there late, but the way she was dressed (in his opinion). As for the cake, it was pretty, but the baker in me kept thinking "I could have done that!" LOL Thoughts?
I have friends who photograph for weddings and they wear a nice black top and black slacks to look inconspicuous but neat. I think that unless you are literally the cleanup/setup crew HOURS before or after the event, there is no reason to go anywhere near a wedding dressed in jeans and a t-shirt.
I agree with your point. It you're getting there late (it can happen, oven broke, car broke) then wear something nice. If not get your butt there before the festivities starts. The photographer, on the other hand was wearing what you said and was out of the way and inconspicuous for most of the time.
if they're on their way, and they get into traffic (they were planning on getting to the venue early to set up), or the car needs fixing, how would they get new clothing?
I guess this would be why you bring a clean chef's coat or an apron in the car.
