After
that first kiss as husband and wife, what’s the sweetest part of your wedding?
The wedding cake! Have a cake cutting ceremony you’ll never forget with these
great tips.


Cake cutting

When

• Right before dessert at a
sit-down reception. Closer to the end of a luncheon or cocktail reception.

 

• Let the kitchen staff
know when you plan to cut the cake so they can remove it right after for
cutting and serving.

 

•Money-Saver: Choose a
small but beautiful wedding cake for display at your reception. Keep
less-expensive sheet cakes in the kitchen for serving to guests.

 

Where

• The cake is usually
placed on its own table. Arrange the venue so your cake table is clearly seen.

 

• Dress the table up with a
nice tablecloth and some decorations (candles, flower petals, confetti, etc.).

 

• Choose a beautiful knife
and server set
to display next to the cake and to use during the cake cutting
ceremony.

How

• The bride begins by
picking up the cake knife with her right hand and the groom puts his hand over
hers.

 

• The couple should start
cutting at the base of a tiered cake. Remember to let the caterer know if you
want to save the top tier.

 

• The couple cuts a small
wedge of cake together. Using the coordinating cake server, the couple will
place the piece of cake on a plate with two forks.

 

• The groom feeds the bride
the first bite, and she feeds him the second. Afterward, they may share a kiss
and sometimes the couple will cut slices for their parents.

 

Why

• The cake cutting ceremony
symbolizes the couple’s commitment to share with and support one another.

 

• Plus, it’s just fun!
