  • Wedding cake knife:

    A wedding cake knife plays a vital role in one of the most important moments in a wedding reception: the ceremonial cutting of the cake. For this reason, not just any knife will do. A specially-designed wedding cake knife is not only a must-have item, it is destined to become a meaningful keepsake for the bride and groom.


     


    Wedding cake knife - formal weddings

    At most formal wedding receptions, the wedding cake knife is put to use after dinner has been served and all the wedding toasts have been made. All eyes are on the bride and groom as they stand at the cake table and lift the wedding cake knife to make the first cut. The bride should hold the wedding cake knife in her right hand, while the groom stands behind her, his right hand covering hers.


    Many couples share a playful moment at this time, feeding each other a small piece of cake - the rules of etiquette state that the groom should feed the first bite to the bride, then she should give a taste to the groom. This gesture actually has symbolic meaning, representing their first meal as a married couple and their intention to take care of each other in the future. Every guest should eat at least a crumb of the cake to ensure good luck for the couple.


    To commemorate the moment, many couples have the wedding cake knife - often with a matching wedge-shaped server - engraved with their names and their wedding date. An instant family heirloom is created this way, and the couple can look forward to using the wedding cake knife at their first anniversary to cut the layer of their wedding cake that is customarily saved and frozen.


    It seems like a simple item, but a wedding cake knife can be designed in a number of shapes and sizes and is usually made from crystal, glass or silver (stainless steel, silverplate or sterling silver). Whatever material the wedding cake knife is made of, the blade is generally stainless steel, which is long lasting and won't tarnish when used. Sometimes, if the wedding cake knife has a glass or Lucite handle, this is decorated with ribbons or paint to match the colors or theme of the wedding.


     


    Wedding cake knife - great gift idea!

    A wedding cake knife or server set is a popular bridal shower or wedding gift. A bride and groom can pick out a design they like or trust the choice of friends and family. Couples who register for bridal china and silver often choose a wedding cake knife in the same pattern. That way, the wedding cake knife is incorporated into their formal dinnerware and will most likely be used more frequently.


    If either the bride or groom's family has a wedding cake knife that has been used for generations, using that one is a lovely way to continue a tradition. When that's the case, have a family member be in charge of the wedding cake knife until it's time for the cake cutting ceremony - and that person should also take it back after the pictures have been taken, to make sure this special wedding cake knife doesn't get accidentally misplaced.

  • Beach wedding cake:


    Beach weddings are very popular with couples who live near or can get to lovely waterfront locations -- but even when the nearest ocean is hundreds of miles away, you can have a beach-themed event featuring a beach wedding cake. Whatever the time of year, even if it's cold and snowy outside, a beach wedding cake is guaranteed to evoke warm images of sun, sand and the sea.


     Beach wedding cake - creative options:

    A beach wedding cake offers many creative design opportunities. It can be iced in bright yellow, like the rays of the sun, or a shade of beige or tan, like the sand on a favorite stretch of beach. Or maybe cover the beach wedding cake in a light blue or turquoise fondant icing, bringing to mind visions of cool, clear water.


    The icing layer on a beach wedding cake serves as the backdrop for a wide variety of themed decorations - seashells, seahorses, palm trees, birds, fish, dolphins, boats, etc. These accents can be a combination of icing and gum paste creations plus purchased add-ons, if desired. Waves, for example, can be made out of curls of white chocolate. Fresh flowers like orchids or other colorful tropical blooms cascading down the sides give a particularly striking and exotic look to a beach wedding cake. (Be careful if using fresh flowers to ensure that no blooms or stems touching the cake are toxic or have come in contact with harmful pesticides.)


    Whether or not the layers of a beach wedding cake are heavily decorated, cake toppers can be used to depict different kinds of beach settings. The bride and groom can be standing in an open seashell - either formally attired or casually dressed for a visit to the beach. Arrange sandcastles on the top of a beach wedding cake for an oceanfront landscape, surrounded by seashells and starfish. A beach wedding cake can be ornamented either whimsically (how about a bride and groom sitting on deck chairs with sunglasses?) or artfully (delicately formed starfish and beaded pearls), depending on the mood the couple wants to establish.  


    If couples want their beach wedding cake to be unique, instead of the standard tiered design they can have their cake custom-shaped like the sun, a lighthouse, a sandcastle, starfish or seashell. Or they can have it both ways - order a conventionally decorated tiered cake and then have a groom's cake decked out as a beach wedding cake.


    For couples lucky enough to actually have a beach wedding, there are a few important things to keep in mind about their beach wedding cake: while the sun is a welcome guest at the event, the beach wedding cake has to be protected from melting. If the wedding is taking place during the day, the beach wedding cake shouldn't be outside until it's time for the cake cutting. If it's an evening reception and cool enough for the cake to be outside, make sure that it's a safe distance from wind-swept sand - and bugs. An artful net draping with shell accents would do the trick, and enhance the beach wedding cake theme at the same time.

  • Groom wedding cake:

    A groom wedding cake - often called a groom's cake and sometimes a groom's wedding cake - is a tradition that dates back to the Victorian era in England. For a long time, the groom wedding cake was popular mostly in the Southern United States, but in recent years it has been showing up at weddings from coast to coast.


     


    Groom wedding cake - where it all started:

    When the custom of a groom wedding cake was first introduced, slices were boxed up and given to the unmarried women who were at the wedding. Each woman was then supposed to put her box underneath her pillow that night - and, legend had it, she would then dream of the man she was going to marry. Nowadays, everyone is entitled to a slice of the groom wedding cake, but it's still common practice to slice it up and box individual pieces for guests to take home.


    Originally, the groom wedding cake was a fruitcake. That's no longer exclusively the case, but groom wedding cakes still tend to be dark - chocolate or red velvet cakes are frequent choices. Rum, brandy and other liquor flavorings are also often used in a groom wedding cake. Unlike the flowers and flourishes of a traditional wedding cake, the decorations on a groom wedding cake are usually designed to reflect the groom's heritage, profession, hobbies, favorite sports team or another of his interests. Groom wedding cakes have been fashioned in the shape of baseballs, footballs, basketballs, hockey pucks - any piece of sports equipment imaginable! In fact, sometimes it's not unusual for the groom wedding cake to be as elaborately decorated as the wedding cake itself.


    The groom wedding cake is generally given as a gift from the bride to the groom. Even so, some grooms pick out the cake themselves, but many brides don't tell their fiancés how the groom wedding cake is going to be designed, so it's a surprise for the guys when they first see it. The groom wedding cake is often served as dessert at the rehearsal dinner, but there's no established rule about when to serve a groom wedding cake. Some couples save the groom wedding cake for an after-party treat for the wedding party and close friends and family. When it's part of the main wedding reception, the groom wedding cake is displayed alongside the traditional wedding cake, which is sometimes called the "bride's cake". Whenever the groom wedding cake is served, it's customary for the groom to be the one doing the cutting and serving.


    If the groom wedding cake is sliced and served during the reception, couples can still follow the tradition of boxing pieces for guests to take home - all the guests, not just the unmarried women. These can even serve as wedding favors; if couples decide to do this, they might want to attach attractive charms or other items to the ribbons, make sure the boxes for the groom wedding cake match the theme colors of the wedding or use attractive, eco-friendly packaging that the guests can re-use.

  • Wedding invitations often set the tone and theme of the wedding, reflecting the cultural and religious background of the engaged couple. If you're having an Indian wedding, design layouts and vibrant paper choices can adapt your invitations to accommodate your community, culture or faith.


     


    Indian Wedding Invitations: Designer Invitations

     


    Thanks to the booming bridal industry, Indian-specific stationary shops cater to Indian couples looking for gorgeous authentic invitation designs. These retailers, many of them online, can supply vibrant handmade papers with a variety of finishes and coatings: mirrors, pearls, bamboo, crystal, gold and silver. Your invitations can be enhanced with rich fabrics like velvet, brocade, silk and satin, embroidered to perfect your custom design. Elegant, ethnic, ornate and chic designs will all still reflect your culture and nuptial theme.


     


    Indian Wedding Invitations: Hindu Wedding Invitations

     


    Some invitation retailers can import invitations from India. Modern, artistic and traditional designs with distinctive features on vibrant handmade papers and ethnic fabrics will set the palette for your big day. By ordering from a company that understands Hindu culture and tradition, you can ensure that the graphics, motifs and patterns best reflect your heritage. Choose invitations printed with Hindu symbols such as Im, Swastik and Ganesha on them; select text that includes pious mantras.


     


    Indian Wedding Invitations: Sikh Invitations

     


    Anticipate a joyous Punjabi wedding with colorful and festive Sikh invitations. Customize the details of Anand Karaj cards, Ek-Om-Kar cards, Sikh invitations and Punjabi cards with embossed papers featuring metallic accents and kundan work. An El-onkar image printed in the center makes a beautiful bold statement.


     


    Indian Wedding Invitations: Muslim Invitations

     


    Ornate motifs and intricate details decorate the best of Islamic stationary design. Known as ‘Valima Cards" and "Nikah Cards," customizable invitations accommodating a Muslim wedding will bring a touch of royalty to your nikah and mangani ceremonies. Choose a design with an embossed border and a Bismillah image printed in gold. Consider a red resham-finish handmade paper treated with intricate kundan work.


     


    Indian Wedding Invitations: Interfaith Invitations

     


    Interfaith wedding invitations often reflect India in their rich color palette and detailed textures without referencing a specific faith or belief system. This allows the bride and groom to customize their invitations' wording to best suit their worldview or faiths. Some couples will want to include more than one religious or cultural background; most Indian-invitation retailers cater to weddings that reflect the specific couple as well as their heritage.


     


    Indian Wedding Invitations: Scroll Invitations

     


    Scroll wedding invitations are the traditional Indian invitations of the kings. These majestic and exquisite designs retain their royal connotation and reflect opulent celebrations. Printed on fabric, handmade paper, velvet or vellum paper, the scrolls are often held by ornate bars on either end and tied with tassels. Send your scroll wedding invitations in soft handmade Resham envelopes. Your guests will be impressed and will look forward to the gorgeous event to come.

    I'll be still in love with you

    (Verse)
    I live to be around you
    You take my breath away
    Can't help but talk about you
    Every night and day

    (Chorus)
    When the eagles forget how to fly
    And it's twenty below in July
    And when violets turn red
    And roses turn blue
    I'll be still in love with you

    (Bridge)
    All I need is you
    Need you just to hold me, console me
    Over and over.......I love you

    (Chorus)
    When the eagles forget how to fly
    And it's twenty below in July
    And when violets turn red
    And roses turn blue
    I'll be still in love with you
    Still in love with you

  • Groom wedding cake:

    A groom wedding cake - often called a groom's cake and sometimes a groom's wedding cake - is a tradition that dates back to the Victorian era in England. For a long time, the groom wedding cake was popular mostly in the Southern United States, but in recent years it has been showing up at weddings from coast to coast.


     


    Groom wedding cake - where it all started:

    When the custom of a groom wedding cake was first introduced, slices were boxed up and given to the unmarried women who were at the wedding. Each woman was then supposed to put her box underneath her pillow that night - and, legend had it, she would then dream of the man she was going to marry. Nowadays, everyone is entitled to a slice of the groom wedding cake, but it's still common practice to slice it up and box individual pieces for guests to take home.


    Originally, the groom wedding cake was a fruitcake. That's no longer exclusively the case, but groom wedding cakes still tend to be dark - chocolate or red velvet cakes are frequent choices. Rum, brandy and other liquor flavorings are also often used in a groom wedding cake. Unlike the flowers and flourishes of a traditional wedding cake, the decorations on a groom wedding cake are usually designed to reflect the groom's heritage, profession, hobbies, favorite sports team or another of his interests. Groom wedding cakes have been fashioned in the shape of baseballs, footballs, basketballs, hockey pucks - any piece of sports equipment imaginable! In fact, sometimes it's not unusual for the groom wedding cake to be as elaborately decorated as the wedding cake itself.


    The groom wedding cake is generally given as a gift from the bride to the groom. Even so, some grooms pick out the cake themselves, but many brides don't tell their fiancés how the groom wedding cake is going to be designed, so it's a surprise for the guys when they first see it. The groom wedding cake is often served as dessert at the rehearsal dinner, but there's no established rule about when to serve a groom wedding cake. Some couples save the groom wedding cake for an after-party treat for the wedding party and close friends and family. When it's part of the main wedding reception, the groom wedding cake is displayed alongside the traditional wedding cake, which is sometimes called the "bride's cake". Whenever the groom wedding cake is served, it's customary for the groom to be the one doing the cutting and serving.


    If the groom wedding cake is sliced and served during the reception, couples can still follow the tradition of boxing pieces for guests to take home - all the guests, not just the unmarried women. These can even serve as wedding favors; if couples decide to do this, they might want to attach attractive charms or other items to the ribbons, make sure the boxes for the groom wedding cake match the theme colors of the wedding or use attractive, eco-friendly packaging that the guests can re-use.

    Thanks to the booming bridal industry, Indian-specific stationary shops cater to Indian couples looking for gorgeous authentic invitation designs. These retailers, many of them online, can supply vibrant handmade papers with a variety of finishes and coatings: mirrors, pearls, bamboo, crystal, gold and silver. Your invitations can be enhanced with rich fabrics like velvet, brocade, silk and satin, embroidered to perfect your custom design. Elegant, ethnic, ornate and chic designs will all still reflect your culture and nuptial theme.


     


    Indian Wedding Invitations: Hindu Wedding Invitations

     


    Some invitation retailers can import invitations from India. Modern, artistic and traditional designs with distinctive features on vibrant handmade papers and ethnic fabrics will set the palette for your big day. By ordering from a company that understands Hindu culture and tradition, you can ensure that the graphics, motifs and patterns best reflect your heritage. Choose invitations printed with Hindu symbols such as Im, Swastik and Ganesha on them; select text that includes pious mantras.


     


    Indian Wedding Invitations: Sikh Invitations

     


    Anticipate a joyous Punjabi wedding with colorful and festive Sikh invitations. Customize the details of Anand Karaj cards, Ek-Om-Kar cards, Sikh invitations and Punjabi cards with embossed papers featuring metallic accents and kundan work.

    Indian Wedding Invitations: Muslim Invitations

     


    Ornate motifs and intricate details decorate the best of Islamic stationary design. Known as ‘Valima Cards" and "Nikah Cards," customizable invitations accommodating a Muslim wedding will bring a touch of royalty to your nikah and mangani ceremonies. Choose a design with an embossed border and a Bismillah image printed in gold. Consider a red resham-finish handmade paper treated with intricate kundan work.


     


    Indian Wedding Invitations: Interfaith Invitations

     


    Interfaith wedding invitations often reflect India in their rich color palette and detailed textures without referencing a specific faith or belief system. This allows the bride and groom to customize their invitations' wording to best suit their worldview or faiths. Some couples will want to include more than one religious or cultural background; most Indian-invitation retailers cater to weddings that reflect the specific couple as well as their heritage.


     


    Indian Wedding Invitations: Scroll Invitations

     


    Scroll wedding invitations are the traditional Indian invitations of the kings. These majestic and exquisite designs retain their royal connotation and reflect opulent celebrations. Printed on fabric, handmade paper, velvet or vellum paper, the scrolls are often held by ornate bars on either end and tied with tassels. Send your scroll wedding invitations in soft handmade Resham envelopes. Your guests will be impressed and will look forward to the gorgeous event to come.
