Are you buying a cake knife serving set?

Recommended Posts

Maybe this is a dumb question....but are you buying a customized knife serving set for your cake? I don't think this is necessary and had plan on just using the hotel's set. Possibly saving money to use elsewhere. What is everyone doing?

My thought on this when I was getting ready for my day was... why bother bringing something else down with me when they will provide one. IF, someone were to buy a set for me as a gift, then yes I would bring it down.. because it was a nice gesture to purchase it. At the resort I stayed at since I did not get one as a gift, they actually had a decorated "Beverly...??" The kind you could purchase from our WC for us to use for free.

My husband's cousin bought us a really nice cake cutter set for our shower and his aunt bought us one when we got engaged. So we used his cousins in JA, since she came there, and his aunt's at the AHR. So it worked out well for us. If it hadn't been purchased as a gift, I probably would've bought my own cuz I had a hard time not buying anything. But do I think it was necessary? Not at all.

I personally bought a "regular" cake cutter and server from Mikasa that I am dressing up with ribbon for the "Big Day". All the "wedding" ones I saw were just impractical for everyday use, and I thought it was silly to buy something that I couldn't use again. My Mikasa set in practical stainless steel was around $25.

meli122 - I am just like you I had planned on buying a cake knife, also toasting flutes etc, then I got thinking do I really need them and I would have to take them to JA then bring them back. So I decided it was not that important to me to bother with it.

Honestly before my wedding I never even thought about a cake-cutter...but the one our resort had looked a lot more like a butter knife and I was wishing I had brought one.

 

Our resort had champagne flutes though so they looked nice!

In the midst of my wedding planning, I thought that this was a must have so I ordered one with our names, location & wedding date. It made for a nice picture & my intention was to display it in our wedding area at home, but if you asked me where it is right now, I couldn't even tell you which drawer or box its in. Not to mention that its never been used again.

And really, I don't think anyone noticed that it was personalized cuz its not like our guests were paying attention to trying to read it!

So, in retrospect, I probably wouldn't buy it again.

I wanted to buy one, because I found a really pretty starfish one that would fit my theme. Then FH mentioned to me that I might have a hard time bringing it down with me because it was a knife. I don't know how true that is, but I guess it could be a potential problem.

 

And now that I think about it, and reading an earlier post, buying one to fit my theme probably isn't practical, as I would probably never use it again or complain that I didn't have an everyday/every occasion set to use.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
