Keep or Skip: Cutting the Cake?

This week we're playing " keep or skip " with popular wedding traditions! ✔️

Are you going to publicly cut the cake (or other dessert)? This is a big "photo op" moment and some people even play a "sweet themed" cake-cutting song! Will you be keeping or skipping this tradition?

    Keep, though we are having cheesecake because that's important to our relationship.

    We skipped a public cake cutting and cut it just the 2 of us and our photographer.

    Keep! Our cake cutting comes right after dinner, like immediately so we can get to dessert and then get the party going. Our cake is special to us though, and made by a special baker to FH family so we definitely have to cut it for them.

    Keep! I kinda think he wants to shove cake in my face. He's a jokester... We shall see! It'll be fun either way.

    I think we are skipping! We will already have a 4 course plated meal which includes dessert so it feels unnecessary to spend a couple grand on a cake on top of that.

    Keep! I just like the photo ops and I like the idea of feeding each other cake.

    FH wants to smash it into my face, though. I keep telling him if he actually does that I will be a very unhappy bride!!!

    Definitely a keep. My future daughter-in-law has a bakery side business and has offered to do, lol. Plus I ordered a custom bobble head cake topper as a surprise and can't wait until FH sees it!!

    Keep! This is one of those cheesy wedding moments I’ve been imagining forever and don’t want to give up haha. We’re doing an ice cream sundae bar for dessert but a small cake just for cutting. And I’ve already been told to expect cake smashed in my face 😂😂

    We are keeping this! We are restricted to what we can bring into our venue (cruise ship) so we will have to just stick with cake (which we have no problem with).
