"If there is one wedding tradition I feel is important to uphold even today, it’s the cutting of the cake. The wedding cake itself represents joy and imagination, and can come in all shapes, styles, textures, and tastes. The cutting of the cake, however, is the highly ritualistic moment that marks the beginning of the couple’s life together and a tradition that should be adhered to as closely as possible: The groom places his right hand over the bride’s and guides her as she cuts the first piece. He feeds her, then she in turn feeds him, this shared first piece of the wedding cake representing their first meal together. -- XO, Vera"
