Are you bringing a wedding cake server and knife for the symbolic cake cutting? I'm not sure what to do here...do brides typically use the one they registered for (as you would for a local wedding), or because it's a DW, do you use one provided by the resort?

I'm definitely not bringing one and just using what the resort has, but the cake cutting is also not overly important to me as a wedding tradition. I just think of all the things I have to pack and that is one of the things that won't make the list! We are also not doing a cake topper. 

 

My sister got married in Mexico last year and everyone was having so much fun at the reception that we 100% completely FORGOT to do the cake cutting at all! Nobody noticed. They brought it to her room and we ate it the next day :)

@beckys98 - That's awesome (eating it the next day)! Thanks for the input, that's kind of what I thought...all of the other things to pack...plus, fear of it getting left at the resort..

I didn't buy one as it's not something I'd like to have as a keepsake. Also they are way overpriced. The resort had one at the reception. We did cut the cake traditionally but also may have forgotten if the MC didn't announce it. lol ok maybe not true at sometime I would have dug in as I love cake.

@calgarybride2015 I love cake too!

 

I would venture to say forgetting to do it at the wedding made for a better memory. We were literally eating forks-full straight from the (uncut) cake the next day like savages! But we were all kind of hung over so it was even more amazing :)

That's awesome!

Before the party was over a few of us went back to what was left and fork fed eachother. Have yet to see these pics but I want too!!!

Oddly I wasn't hungover! Not once actually. Lucky me!!

I bought one to take. Was just a simple one for like 10 bucks at Craft Store. I didn't put much thought into it.

I'm going to be using cake forks instead of a cake knife & server.  These seem smaller and easier to travel with.

I will use the one the resort will provide for us. It's just one less thing to carry, and I'm ok if I don't have it to keep as a keepsake.

Also using the resort provided. Not something important to me I guess. Any of you ladies bringing champagne flutes...the customized doodads?
