Toasting Flutes/Cake Cutting Set

Recommended Posts

so its funny I just found this thread.  Went home to my moms this weekend and she showed me the cake serving set and the toasting flutes that she bought for FI and I for the wedding.  I felt like such a jerk, but I was like "MOM!  How are we going to get those down south?"  Luckily I didnt hurt her feelings too much, we both laughed because she said, I dont know, i was going to give them to you to bring down.  I talked her into returning them or giving them to someone else for their wedding.

 

Its sooo not worth the hassle.  (plus they were VERY frufru-shishi.... not my style at ALL)  I like to keep it simple, thats why we HAD the destination wedding to begin with!

 

Unfortunately i didnt know how to break it to her that a white satin wedding album is not really my style either.  sooooo I will have to bite the bullet on that one.  But seriously, white satin??? will people need to wear gloves to look at our wedding album????  I mentioned that it would be hard to keep clean and that it would get dusty, and she told me that I had to keep it in the box????? OR i could wash it.  How does one wash a photoalbum???  LOL.  gotta love mom-logic!

Don't you just love moms?  lol!

 

I was just thinking about this.  I have no idea if my resort has cake cutting sets or if I need to bring some down with me.  Do you ladies know if most resorts have them?

I purchased my own flutes and cake server set and had no issues when I put it in our luggage.  Tip - keep it in it's original box and travel with it like, they shouldn't break.  I found a Lenox set at Macys for $15 each.

I'd be shocked if a resort did NOT have champagne flutes and cake cutters. Weddings aside, resorts serve champagne/sparkling wine and cake during the normal course of business.
 

But now that I think of it, it's always better to ask and be sure than to assume!

I was thinking the same thing but if I didn't check, I know that would be on my mind constantly!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
