I’ve seen it- consider a naked cake. The icing can get everywhere! I actually saw this done just for the bridesmaids and the bride gave each of them a bracelet before they all pulled 3 charms each.

LegallyBrunetteBee:  we’re doing this tradition! My MIL is from New Orleans and that was a huge wedding things there. I’ll be doing it as a nod to her side of the family:) I bought 15 charms off of etsy for $5 and pur baker will put them into the cake before she delivers it for the wedding:)

I’m from New Orleans and I did a bouquet toss and a cake pull.  I just ordered my charms from a site that sold them for charm bracelets.  They were relatively inexpensive.

I love this idea since we are not doing a bouquet throw or garter toss! I like the first picture OP posted with the thin layer of cake strictly for the charms.. Would we cut the cake first or the charm pulls first?

I found an etsy seller that sells 43 charms for $12! Would be nice to have it for all the girls at our 100 guest wedding. If I do decide to do that, how do I get the girls organized as obviously 40 people around a cake may not work… Or would it?

I have considered doing this with gormet cupcakes and my bridesmaids at a bridal luncheon or something.

TattooedChick23:  I don’t think it’s logistically possible to do it with that many guests.  Typically it’s meant for just your bridesmaids or your single female guests.  I had twelve charms and included my closest girlfriends, bridesmaids and cousins.  I looked back at my wedding photos and we did the cake pull before we cut the cake, which makes a lot of sense.  

I’m pretty sure it is sitting underneath the cake platform, not a layer of cake.

This is standard at all Argentine weddings as well. Single ladies pull a charm from the cake together. The girl that gets the engagment ring charm is the next to marry. It is done prior to cutting the cake. The charms are inserted in the bottom layer of the cake and it is sort of fun to lick off the icing. Makes for great photos and lots of laughs.

 

I’ll be doing this for my wedding in 4 weeks and I have 33 single women! Some how we’ve got to make it work!
