Wedding Cake Aprons
For the Cake Cutting Ceremony
Sold only in coordinated pairs
To emphasize the meaning of this memorable moment, just before the cake is cut attendants assist the bride and groom put on their Wedding Cake Aprons, symbols of their commitment to always serve and "be there" for each other.
Subsequently, by serving cake to their new in-laws, the couple in their aprons demonstrate their commitment to serve and, as best they
can, to "be there" for their new extended family as well.
If desired, incorporated may be trim from the wedding
garments of the mothers-in-law as a symbol, in turn, of the families' support and blessing of the union (See Wedding GALLERY). The aprons are then removed as anniversary keepsakes never outgrown.
