·         Create a style. It is common to match your wedding cake to the theme of your big day, or to even keep it simple with fondant flowers that complement your colors or even your bouquet. However, there are so many more options that many brides may not have even considered, such as designing your cake to be unique to you and your spouse, by recreating a treasured memory and incorporating it within your design.

·         Planning. Timing is everything when planning your wedding, from your wedding date to the actual time of your wedding and reception, each detail is important. Your wedding cake cutting ceremony is an important part of your reception, so it should be timed just perfectly. Consider a time for your cake cutting when it will be easy to get the attention of your guests; If you wait until after the reception, everyone is dancing and drinking, so it may be difficult to regroup everyone and keep their attention.
