Brides lose lots of sleep in the months and weeks leading up to their special day. There are seating charts to organize and guest favors to finalize, all tasks that require time and money.

However, many soon-to-be-wives have turned to DIY projects to make some of their wedding dreams a reality. The night before she said "I Do," one woman did something brave, but her actions didn't please everyone.

SHE SAVED LOTS OF MONEY

Saxe didn't want to spend hundreds of dollars on a wedding cake, so she opted to bake the delicious dessert, proudly sharing that it cost less than $50.

She geared herself with Betty Crocker's rainbow white cake mix and got to work in 2022. Two days before her nuptials, she baked the base of the cake.

The TikToker covered the cake in Saran Wrap and placed it in the fridge once she was done. She comically noted:

"Not sure if making my wedding cake at midnight the night before my wedding was the best idea."

However, she was determined to complete the task and was happy with her progress. The rainbow treat had a special meaning for the couple, and Saxe revealed it was her fiancé's favorite.

MAKING MEMORIES

The night before the big day, she decorated the tiered cake with icing. In a TikTok video, she said: "This is just me laughing at myself because I've never iced a cake in my life, but I think it's looking pretty cute."

The treat was completed with thousands of sprinkles and a cake topper that read, "The Saxes." Her family surrounded her as she smoothed the frosting onto the bases. They bonded and made the most out of the moment. The bride shared:

"It’s a memory I will treasure forever of me, my in-laws, and my husband decorating our cake until 1 am the night before our wedding."

THE ONLINE REACTIONS

When she shared the footage online, people were in two minds about her wedding cake. Many believed she was joking, suggesting there was no way she served the cake to her guests. One netizen wrote: "Is this a joke??? It's a birthday cake."

Someone else said the cake would give them a "panic attack," while another quipped it "[looked] like a dog's dinner." A netizen also added:
