The Cake Cutting— a joyous


tradition


celebrating your new marriage. The bride and groom cut the cake together as their first act as a couple. The feeding of the cake is symbolic of the commitment to provide for each other. This moment should be showcased during your wedding. Here are some suggestions for making


the most of this special moment.


Cut your cake after you finish with your entrée and have it served about 1/2 hour to 45 minutes after concluding dinner. If you wait until later in the evening, some of your older guests or guests with children may miss this moment.


Coordinate with your photographer and videographer to find the right angle and placement so they can get a great shot.


Do not smash cake into your new spouses face. This isn’t funny and just takes away from the moment. And it’s been done already—we’re over it!


Your cake should be cut and served to your guests at their seats if possible, along with coffee.

1. The groom should place his right hand on the cake knife with the bride placing her left hand (to show off the bling!) on top.


2.Make two cuts creating a deep V on the bottom layer. This makes it easier to slide out the first piece.


3. Use a cake server to remove the piece of cake. This is wider utensil.


4. The bride feeds the groom, the groom feeds the bride—and hopefully you do NOT play that song.


5. And kiss! January 2011
