Growing up in my parent’s floral business and running an event planning business has taught me a lot about wedding traditions.
when you think about it, the whole process starts with a couple getting engaged.

Whatever route you take, make sure that you tell both sets of parents, along with your close friends and relatives before you post it on Facebook and change your relationship status. xo

Plus, the cake could end up on your wedding dress. Wedding Cake Cutting Disaster.
