Hi Brides! I'm almost done with booking all of my major vendors for our special day. I'm now down to buying all the little things that we need to complete the day. Cake is a major part of the wedding reception. Is having your cake and knife set engraved a thing or does it seem to be going away from tradition now? I'm fine with a classic silver cake and knife server set. What did you guys do for cutting your cake?

    We ordered pretty cost effective ones off of Etsy and they were beautiful and matched the decor so well!

    Just like PP we have ordered ours off Etsy. They are engraved and I love how modern they look. Makes me feel like I can use them for parties later on, even if they do have our names and wedding date.

    Whatever you decide just make sure you get something. We completely spaced on this one, well my caterers did. I honestly couldn't tell you what we ended up using but we had to pick it up with our fingers and it wasn't easy! It was a cheesecake lol we were dying laughing

    If you aren't planning on using or displaying them in the future I wouldn't waste the money on personalized knives. We used a set that was handed down from a cousin's wedding and someone else is using it after me. I didn't care to hang on to them.

    I ended up ordering a set for like, $16 off Amazon. Originally I wanted to get something fancier or engraved but after spending money on a lot of other stuff it just didn't seem worth it.

    We just used whatever the venue had because it wasn't important for us to keep these after the wedding.

    I didn’t think about this as well since most venues provide the knife

    Honestly, I was going to get a special cake cutter and knife, for cutting the cake. I decided against it due to that being an added cost.

    Thanks Sarah! I agree! I don't want to spend too much on a cake and knife server set either.

    I bought a set for my first marriage (but not engraved). For this wedding, were using whatever the hotel has. No one really notices it and it never gets used in the future anyway.

    These are mine I ordered from Etsy. I will use the glass for weekend mimosas and I got the server engraved as well.
