In Her Words
Not So Sweet Tradition
Did you eat your cake on your one-year anniversary?
-Julie Ryan Evans
When you get married, you get to have your cake and eat it too…one year later. Or so the tradition goes.
Due to the logistics of where we held our wedding (Nebraska) and where we lived at the time (Boston) and where we moved just weeks later (Austin) we didn’t end up getting to test out our wedding cake on our first anniversary-it got lost somewhere along the way. And, honestly, as romantic as he is, there’s NO way my husband would have even considered tasting it. Me? I don’t turn down frosting in any form.
But it turns out we didn’t miss out on much.
So while www.consciousweddings.com says this tradition is “a way to bring the year into the body, come full circle, and complete a process that began with the engagement,” it seems in this case, traditions are made to be broken…or to be partaken of only by those with strong stomachs.
