It’s no secret that weddings are an expensive affair – but a tip from TikToker promising to cut at least one major cost of the special day is building excitement on the platform.
Laura Fragoso Hiller (@laurafragosohiller), a Texas UX designer and wedding videographer who racked up over 63,000 TikTok followers with her wedding hack videos, shared a cost-cutting tip she used for her big day – get a Sam’s Club wedding cake for under $ 70.
“Listen to me,” Hiller began in his video. “I myself was a little hesitant about this when my friend suggested it to me at the time of my marriage. Then I ended up doing it and it got beautiful. “
“Sam’s Club makes three tier cakes that feed about 75 people, and they cost just under $ 70,” she continued. “So the price is fantastic. “

Although she noted that the budget retailer’s website was doing a “terrible job” advertising the cakes, she urged her viewers not to be put off by the store’s own photos, as the cakes are customizable.
“Order it plain white…. Buy some pretty flowers from HEB or Trader Joe’s, and you make them look like this, ”Hiller explained, presenting photos of the cake’s true potential. “And if you have to feed more than 75 people, get yourself a normal white sheet cake, leave it in the back and have them cut it up and take it out if more pieces are needed.”
According to The Knot, the average wedding cake in the United States costs around $ 500. Of course, this number varies enormously, depending on the number of levels, the number of people to feed, the type of cake and your location.
Still, it’s hard not to think of $ 70 as mind blowing in comparison – and TikTokers seems to agree.
“Save this even though I’m 18 and don’t have a Sam subscription,” one user wrote.
“It’s genius !!” another user commented. “Please post more affordable marriage advice!” “
“My sister made Sam’s Club cupcakes for her,” commented a third. “It was a huge success.”
Even the Sam’s Club agrees.
“I’m going to look past the advertising and the floral jabs because the tip of the cake is legitimate,” the company account wrote.
Still, a few users have suggested trying to buy from local small businesses for those on the budget.
