We’re obsessed with anything and everything Paris, France. My brother bought us a bottle of Cristal that I’m so excited to try and I think it’d put these to good use! Ialso want the flutes for my house, lol. I’m not buying an decor objects I don’t want to take home.

A little unusual but we’re using a sword that was my fiancé’s Grandfather’s on his mum’s side.
The grandfather in question was Scottish and in a highland regiment apparently and it has been handed down to my fiancé which I think makes it special and fun! Assuming nobody gets hurt playing with it…😜
We’ve had to take it to a specialist though so it can get all cleaned up though as it hasn’t had a little TLC in years. 😉

We bought a Kate Spade cake cutter and matching flutes. I’ll admit, after the wedding they didn’t get as much use as I would have hoped, but I used them for our anniversary!

I didn’t want to spend too much since I knew we probably wouldn’t get too much use out of it, but I got a cute engraved set from Peggy’s Passions on Etsy.

- Wedding: July 2015 - Carmen\'s Lakeview
Used the cake knife my parents used 30 years ago. Just like we used the champagne glasses inlaws used 35 years ago 🙂

MacKaylarae: I bought a cake set along with pair of champagne glasses, and I got our monogram engraved on them with our wedding Date. Maybe hard to tell on photo but they are gold. So is the monogram on the glasses. Found this vendor on etsy that could engrave any design you want. I Find it such a nice keepsake to use every year on the anni 🙂

My mom bought a nice looking cake cutting set from Hobby Lobby. It’s not an heirloom or anything, but I can just use regular silverware for my current cake cutting needs anyway. OP’s set looks very fancy and chic!

We bought our set from Things Remembered. It was called the Madison Avenue collection. Unfortunately I don’t have a picture of ours. We had them engrave our logo on the glasses pane they looked amazing. I believe they still sell them

The reception venue provided the knife to cut the cake.

MacKaylarae: we used a cake cutting set from Amazon, it was like $20, gold colored with leaves on them. Very cute, sturdy and we loved them!

I think its really pretty!! I love pretty much anything from BHLDN.
Ours are waterford crystal we bought online. Fiance is Irish, and is obsessed with anything Irish, including Irish crystal apparently lol. We also have Waterford toasting flutes.

MacKaylarae: So I had sent that one to my wedding planner, and she said that she already purchased for another bride and it broke at the wedding- the gold part was attached really poorly! I was so surprised, but when I went to research I found other reviews that said the same.
If it helps, absolutely no one will really pay attention to what you are holding. I can’t even tell from my photos- I just see our smiles. I registered for this set and got it later as a Hanukkah gift, so it still feels special. Highly recommend the matching toasting flutes- they feel incredible in hand!

MacKaylarae: nothing special. we used whatever the venue provided us with. lol
there are so many things wedding related and i didn’t get too caught up in it as a wedding reception is expensive enough already.

MrsPiggles: I bought the same Madison Ave cake cutting set. Didn’t get the flutes tho, we got Swarovski crystal flutes instead. Loved this cake set so much and although it doesn’t get a ton of use after the wedding, it is displayed nicely in our China hutch.
