I’ve never understood why the couple doesn’t eat anything when they certainly have time. Including just getting one bite of cake.

At the same time, I have heard lots of brides say that year old cake tastes terrible so they wish that they would have just taken it with them to their hotel room the night of the wedding to munch on instead of saving it to get freezerburned (even following the proper wrapping directions) and ending up with food poisoning.

i fully intend to eat! lol. we’re doing toasts during dinner so that we’ll have at least 10-15 minutes to sit down and just get to eat without talking to anyone.

Wow, we had people form 8 states and 3 countries at our wedding, and still ate! It was something that we decided beforehand was non-negotiable. If we were paying all that money for food we carefully selected, we were definitely eating! And, on a side note, I packed the top tier of my wedding cake in my carry-on luggage and brought it on the honeymoon! Nothing like sitting in a hot tub enjoying it all over again 🙂

I am the exact same way at work functions when it is cocktails and appetizers, I never eat a bite b/c I am talking to people! We had the top of our cake sent home with my parents to put in their freezer I can’t wait to eat it next June! 🙂

We completely missed the appetizers at our wedding. Even though we were there for the entire cocktail hour, we spent so much time taking pictures and talking with our guests that we never even SAW the appetizer tables. When it came time for our meal, we did get to eat. We planned it so that the toasts would happen towards the end of dinner so there was nothing to interrupt our eating.

Unfortunately, when it came to the cake? Yeah, I never even got a bite of it. When my hubby fed me a piece all he got was a fingerful of icing, which, while delicious was NOTHING compared to the mocha chocolate chip cake underneath. I am practically swooning at the thought. Since dinner was over and dancing had already started by the time we cut the cake, we were up dancing and mingling and never even saw the waitstaff serving the cake!

As for a good reason not to have eaten at your wedding? My mother loves to tell the story of how at her wedding her brother kept stealing her silverware whenever they would kiss or something. Even when she would get another set, she would only get a bite or two before he would steal it again! In other words, beware of sibling pranks! lol
