In ancient time, the wedding cake represented fertility. Pieces of cake over the brides head during the ceremony were to bless them. The guest also picked up the pieces and carried the home to keep them for good fortune.
Cake toppers only came into life during the Victorian days. Queen Victoria and Prince Albert had their small figurines on their wedding cake. Today, the wedding cake continues to thrive with cake toppers in high demand. Americans own unique custom was the grooms’ cake that originated from the South.
Something old, Something new, Something borrowed and Something blue
This old custom meant everything to the couple. The old was the old ties to the bride’s family and her past. Something new was the life ahead with her husband.
Something borrowed was an item from someone who is in a successful marriage to pass on the good fortune. Finally, something blue was for loyalty, purity and faithfulness. Today, they are used in many wedding ceremonies.
