✨1. cutting the cake
tradition: it used to be only the bride who cut the wedding cake—today, both partners share in the cake-cutting ritual. family, friends and photographers alike look forward to the moment the couple joins hands around the cake knife and cuts the first slice. not only will your guests finally get to taste the gorgeous creation they've been eyeing throughout your reception, it’s also a classic wedding moment (up there with the first kiss and first dance).
✨2. feeding the cake
tradition: the tradition of smashing the first bite of cake in each other’s faces has gained popularity in more recent years, and everyone has their own take on it. it’s completely optional, but it can be a great time for you and your partner to be silly and playful after a long day of formality—and don’t forget about the adorable photo op.
✨ 3. saving the top tier
tradition: back in the 19th century, couples saved their top tier for the christening of their first child. today, couples generally wait a longer period of time after their “i dos” before having children, so they’ll save a slice or tier of cake for their first wedding anniversary.
✨ 4. lucky charms
tradition: the custom of adding gold or silver charms into a cake is usually reserved for bridal showers, but you can also make it a sweet tradition at the reception. each charm baked into the cake carries special meaning, and a different kind of luck will fall on the guest who receives it. for example, a rocking chair ensures a long, happy life, and an anchor or airplane symbolizes a fun adventure is in the near future.
