Here is another southern tradition that I want to get my hands on! I don’t remember where I first saw it, but immediately fell in love with the idea of cake pulls. The tradition of wedding cake pulls dates to Victorian times, in which unmarried women would find their fortunes in the cake pulls. Each charm, traditionally made of sterling silver, represented a different fortune.
The problem with this is that, one of my BMs is already married with a baby, 3 of my BMs are engaged, and that leaves just one single Bridesmaid or Best Man. So I thought I would do some fun ones, like a hot air ballon for travel, a star for wishes come true, etc. Just another way to make the girls feel special for being apart of our day.
Has anyone else incorporated cake pulls on their wedding day? Does anyone have any pictures?

This is precious! I haven’t heard of this, but it definitely is a great idea. Maybe you could do a separate cake for the girls? Even if it’s a homemade one?

cake pulls are a southern tradition. i get that you want to include your bms, but if you’re inviting other family or friends that are single, it would be nice to include them too!

@kitzy: I would like to do that but then that would be 20+ women! I don’t think it would work lol

We did this at my friends wedding. Her in-laws said it was traditional at a wedding from their home country of Paraguay … so i’m not sure it’s entirely a southern thing .. altho Paraguay is south of the US.
