Wedding Traditions: Cutting the Cake

You know what to eat, but what — if anything — do you say during the cake-cutting ceremony?

(page 2 of 2)

The Wedding Guru says: Don’t be silly — it’s not necessary for newlyweds to say anything during the cake-cutting ceremony! Because you’ll have everyone’s attention, you may wish to use that moment to thank everyone for attending your wedding celebration. Some couples use that time for toasts or other announcements.

Keep in mind that, although there are few speaking traditions at the time of cake-cutting, you and your bride can make your own tradition and use that juncture in your wedding reception to do anything you wish. Just remember to eat the cake!

Have a great wedding!
