The cutting of the cake symbolizing the first thing you do together as a married couple. Are you including this tradition? I feel like there is a certain degree of trust involved with this one. I have seen the wedding video where the bride or groom smash cake into the others face and honestly I would be beyond angry. I guess it depends on the type of couple you are. We are having a small cake so we can do the cake cutting then the rest will be cupcakes. I feel cupcakes are just easier than having cake served even though our venue includes this service. What are your plans? The huge cake? Cupcakes? Or just going to forget this one?
Thanks Rayanne! At this time we have about 10 options on our dessert table estimating 3 items per person plus a cupcake. If there are any leftovers, we will have boxes that guests can take some home in.
We are bringing in donuts instead of a cake, and I am not sure if we have a plan of 'cutting the donut' (lol). If it happens it happens, if not, no biggie. I am not a fan of being the centre of attention, so I am okay with forgoing a lot of the traditional things.

😊 thanks I'm not really worried about it. If things don't go as planned the day of hopefully it'll at least be a funny story. The cake cutting will only be a small part of the day. We won't even have the photographer there for it.
We are doing a the cake cutting. we have a 3 layer cake only to serve about 80-90 guests and i have a table of other sweets. During our cake cutting we will also have a song played that we enjoy together
We are doing cake cutting!! I dont even really like cake but for some reason I wanted to keep this tradition! We got a $20 cake from the grocery store! There will be lots of dessert at our wedding! My Fiancé will definitely not smash cake in my face! He knows that is unacceptable!!

My friend did have a cake and they literally forgot about it till it was time to leave and she ended up bringing cake home to serve 100 people 😅. We Aldo have cheesecake for a dessert and if it wasn't important to FH and my son didn't absolutely hate cheesecake we wouldn't worry about the cupcakes... We will also have a ridiculous amount of food available. I did buy some cupcake boxes to make sure guests could bring one home if they didn't feel like it that night.
We didn’t have a wedding cake and have zero regrets about it - So many vendors of ours said it was honestly a great idea. We already had so much food with our meal, which included cheesecake (and a late night poutine station) so it felt like a waste of money for us since no one would have even had room to eat it and we personally didn’t care about cake cutting photos or the tradition (we cut out most traditions)! We were able to allocate that money to something that was more important to us It’s such a personal decision but I always say, don’t be afraid to cut tradition or modify them - Do everything that makes you both happy and don’t worry about anything or anyone else!! If we had done a cake, we would have done a small single tier and served a slab cake (or even cupcakes) that was the same flavour to save money.
We are cutting the cake!! My Aunty gifted us with our wedding cake and we accepted her generous Offer! If she wasn’t gifting us with that then I think we’d loose the tradition! Just because I don’t see the importance of it haha 🤷🏼♀️ But it obviously makes it more special now because it’s from my Aunty so I will cherish the photos!
But I have been nervous about it lately! And not because my fiancé will smash cake in my face .. he knows to not do that after literally spending thousands on my hair makeup and dress 😬But I’m nervous that we won’t cut it right while everyone’s starring!!!? Like I’ve seen videos of planners teaching the couple how to hold each other properly and cut it!! What if we mess up!? Lol
