Are you ditching the cake cutting?

The cake-cutting is a classic wedding tradition and standard photo opportunity! The symbolism is pretty sweet - it鈥檚 the first activity you do together as a couple, and feeding each other a small bite symbolizes your commitment to providing and caring for one another. But cutting the cake can become pretty complicated (which tier?!), and not everyone wants pictures of themselves chowing down on dessert!

Are you ditching tradition and cutting out the cake ceremony at your wedding? Or keeping this tradition in? Smiley cake

Thank you, next (tradition): Are you doing or ditching the "carry over the threshold" tradition?

Back to the beginning: Which wedding traditions are you ditching?

    We're keeping it, but I'm not sure yet if we'll just sneak away with our photographer to do it by ourselves, or if we'll have the DJ announce.

    We did it. It wasn't important to me, but he really wanted to.

    He smashed the cake in his best friends face.

    We cut our cake but didn't make a big deal out of it. We did it quickly with just us and the photographers.
