We just heart fun, old traditions that make their way back into the spotlight. One charming example is the incorporation of The Wedding Cake Charm Pull! The Cake Pull or Ribbon Pull is a sweet little ceremony you can do during your wedding reception right after your cake cutting or at your bridesmaid luncheon. While this tradition has its roots in Victorian England, Southern brides have claimed it as their own!
If you have never seen this, here is how it works: The charms – one for each bridesmaid – are tied to long satin ribbons. The charms, usually made of sterling silver, are inserted in your luncheon or wedding cake by your baker, with the ribbons are left streaming out of the cake. At the appointed time, you have your bridesmaids each chose a ribbon and pull. Each charm has a special meaning attached to it and they tend to run along some general themes.
Here are just some examples of the dozens of charms to be used for this fun and special tradition:
True love/happy marriage/next to marry
Fleur de lis
Hot air balloon
Eternal beauty/life full of style and fashion
Good Luck/well wishes/good news
We hope you have fun finding a way to include this sweet tradition into your wedding festivities!
