The Cake Cutting Ceremony: To Smash or Not To Smash?

Newlyweds have been cutting the cake for over a century and this delicious tradition is likely to be around for generations to come…because who doesn’t love cake?! For the couple, choosing what flavors you want is the easy part. The true dilemma comes down to one question. To smash or not to smash?

We’re taking a look back at our own Vow Exchange couples and their cake cutting ceremonies! We’re celebrating the sweethearts who kindly fed a bite of cake to their new spouse and those on the wilder side who got a little crazy with the sweets. Because at the end of the (wedding) day, any way you eat cake is the right way to eat cake!
