The practice of a groom’s cake dates back to the Victorian era in England, when in addition to the main wedding cake, there was also a smaller groom’s cake. Both cakes were cut simultaneously and served to the bridesmaids and groomsmen. Especially in the south, the custom of a groom’s cake has endured in the United States and brides often view it as a chance for the groom to get some recognition when the day is primarily focused around her.
If you’re having a summer wedding, waiting until the weather gets nice to begin getting into wedding shape won’t give you optimal results. Of course losing your love handles won’t make you a happier bride, as anyone who’s watched a carb-deprived wife-to-be lose her mind over a tasting menu knows, but it can help keep your bridezilla at bay.
