Before I started this blog I had never even heard of a groom's cake. After a little digging, I've found out that a groom's cake is a tradition that originated from the southern part of the country. It's usually served as dessert at the rehearsal dinner, or on a separate table from the wedding cake at the reception. The groom's cake is served as a gift from the bride to the groom, and is usually designed to reflect some of the groom's hobbies or interests.
As nice as the gesture may seem, sometimes a couple's budget doesn't allow for another expense like this. Danny isn't a huge fan of dessert, so I feel like a groom's cake would be a waste on him. I would feel better spending the money on a gift like a watch or cufflinks; something that I know he'd get more use out of. However, I've found a bunch of groom's cakes that may make me reconsider.
What do you think? Is a grooms cake a wedding do or don't?
