Wedding Cakes and Knives: A Love-Hate Relationship
As a professional wedding photographer, I've shot my fair share of weddings. And let me tell you, there's one thing that seems to happen at almost every single one: someone forgets to bring a knife to cut the cake.
I mean, seriously people, how do you forget the most important utensil at the wedding reception? The one that's going to help you slice through that beautiful, multi-tiered confection and share it with all of your loved ones? It's a mystery to me.
But as a professional, I've learned to roll with the punches and make the best of every situation. And let me tell you, I've seen some creative solutions to this age-old problem.
There was the time when the best man had to borrow a butter knife from the catering staff to cut the cake. It was a little bit awkward and not exactly the most efficient method, but it got the job done.
Then there was the couple who decided to just use their hands to pull apart the layers of the cake. It was a messy solution, but at least they got to taste the cake right away!
And let's not forget the time when the groom's mother pulled out a pocket knife to cut the cake. Talk about being prepared!
So, if you're planning a wedding and want to avoid this common blunder, make sure to put a knife on your list of must-haves for the reception. Trust me, it'll save you a lot of hassle (and potentially awkward moments) on your big day.
