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? Photo by Lena...

    Keep! We're not doing any cake smashing or any special cutting items though.

    Probably going to skip it. By that time I will have changed into my flats so it will really reiterate how much taller FH is than me. 11 inches to be exact.

    Not 100% sure on this. I'll have to give it more thought.

    Keep! The cake cutting was one of the few traditions we didn't skip!

    I'm on the fence. I really wasn't into it, because it seems like such an interruption, but now I'm feeling like it's even more awkward not to. We might use FIL's cake cutters from their wedding, which would be a nice touch if we do it.

    We'll for sure do this. I wasn't aware that some people don't want to cut the cake!?

    KEEP! I am super excited for this part...I feel like cake-cutting pics are some of the sweetest and most natural shots of the couple. But he's been warned that if he smears it all over my face he's in trouble!
