Here is cake etiquette tips for you to know:
o The cake is displayed on a beautifully decorated table, which goes in front of the main table without blocking the guests' view of the bride and groom. A decorated knife is usually placed at the table.
o The cake is cut after the reception lunch or dinner has been served.
o The cutting of the cake is announced prior to the cutting.
o The right hand of the groom goes over the right hand of the bride, while they cut the wedding cake together. The first slice is fed by the groom to his bride, after which the bride serves her new husband.
o The cake is then taken away by a family member, friend or the catering staff to be cut. The cutting is not done in front of the guests.
o The cake is then served with coffee or tea. Know that once the cake is served and eaten, your guests will start to leave.
