Are you buying a cake knife serving set?

Recommended Posts

I am really glad I found this. I was going to but a set with starfish myself this week and now I am having second thoughts. Any brides that have been married have any input?? Thanks!

I also ordered mine from Oriental Trading & was very happy with it.

Just remember ladies, do not pack the knife serving set in your carry-on bag!! You must put it in your checked luggage. I would also keep it in the original box that it comes packaged in.
Too make a long story short, I packed it in a bag that I told my MIL to take for us. Although I told her to check the bag, she forgot & tried to take it as a carry on. Well ofcourse when she went thru security, they noticed the knife, stopped her & made her unpack the bag. When they asked her why she was trying to get on the plane with a knife set, she was surprised it was even there & really had no explanation other than she forgot!!!
So, just words to the wise, make sure its in your checked luggage!

Thanks for the info I will def. be sure to pack it in my checked luggage. I acutally purchased the cake knife that corresponds with my china pattern so it will have dual purposes.

I am skipping it to use the resorts, I just dont want to have to bring it down.

 

We are trying to keep it really simple with just a few personal touches. Then again I am using the resorts cake and whole cake thing is just not a priority for me.

 

I might not be the best person to ask.

My very nice sister bought me one as an engagement present, but otherwise I probably wouldn't have bothered since my wedding is fairly small and casual.

 

That being said, if I HAD bought one for myself, I probably would've gotten a starfish one to match my theme, and then never used it again. My sister got me a very pretty sparkly set covered in crystals, and I can use it for any fancy occasion! Sometimes things turn out better when they're unplanned :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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?
