"Taking home the wedding cake"
The early Egyptians and Romans are among the first to have made bread (which later became cake) a special part of the wedding celebration. Grains, particularly prolific ones, such as wheat and barley were considered symbolic of fertility. It became traditional that at the end of the marriage ceremony, a thin loaf of wheat or barley would be broken over the Bride's head, presumably to ensure her many children. The guests would pick up the crumbs as good luck charms. The wedding cake has taken the place of the bread. While many people go ahead and eat the cake at the reception, individual portion wedding cake boxes are still common.
If You are in love with a frilly looking cake and your groom would like
a more unusual one the Groom's cake is a good place to let him express
himself. It is traditionally a much smaller cake and thus allows one
to play with less formal themes and less traditional flavors with far
less consequences. He can play up a love for golf or fishing, whatever!
My husband had a chocolate groom's cake decorated like the helmet of
the Pittsburgh Steelers. I did make them put the cakes on opposite ends
of the table for presentational purposes. I got my elegant white calla
lily amaretto tiered cake and he got to have his beloved chocolate and
put his own little stamp on the wedding which his football buddies enjoyed.
In many weddings today the Bride and Groom have not had the advantage
of taking dance lessons and feel a little awkward dancing in front
the crowd. It is usually obvious to the guests that you would rather
not be there. Dance lessons will of course fix this problem but even
if you never learn to dance, smiling while you dance is absolutely
necessary. I am always saying "More Teeth!" to the couples I teach.
If you are dancing beautifully, it still will not look right unless
The converse is true as well -- even if you have no clue about dancing,
the two of you smiling and enjoying the moment will make for a better
show. Dancing is like a shark, it has to keep moving - Never Stop and
always Shows Lots Of Teeth! A big mistake means even bigger teeth!
smiling broadly as they foxtrot around the floor. It is obvious that
they are having a great time, and guests will always feel more like
joining in the party if the Bride and Groom are truly enjoying themselves.
