IDEAS FOR SPEECHES – HOW IS MARRIAGE LIKE A WEDDING CAKE?

Here is a perfect idea for a wedding speech donated by my mum (originally written for my grandparents 50th anniversary). How is marriage like making a wedding cake? Read on to find out…

“Firstly, you have to find the right ingredients, which is a bit like finding the right partner. Some mixed fruit is better than others, somebeing plumper, tastier or perhaps just wrapped in a prettier packet!

Then, like a relationship, you’ll need exactly the right amount of sugar, not too much or it will get a bit sickly.

Once you are married (or for these purposes, once the cake is cooked), add the alcohol on a regular basis. Then wrap it up well and keep it safe!

The layer of marzipanwill increase the size of your cake slightly, just as the years may do to your figure but things are now beginning to take shape.

The icing will be applied in several layers to cover the lumpy bits and to fill the cracks that may have appeared! After a while, it mayeven get a bit crusty – a tough exterior– but still soft inside.

Finally, decorate with flowers and ribbons. Then transport carefully, being careful not to break it,– a bit like the human body.

Add some gold and sparkle for appearance. There you have it, a wedding cake, or for my purposes …(insert couples names) 50 years down the line.”

As well as being used as part of a speech this could also be used in a wedding card to the couple.

About weddingreceptionidea

I run a wedding entertainment agency called 'The Band Boutique'. Our aim is to find the perfect band or performer for each couple that come to us. Whether the theme of the reception is 'Country Wedding', 'Vintage Tea Party' or simply 'Traditional' we endeavour to hand pick something that will delight guests as well as giving the happy couple a performance to remember. From Harpists to Parisian Gypsy Jazz, Rock Bands to String Quartet's, The Band Boutique will definitely have something that floats your boat! Whilst running The Band Boutique, visiting wedding fairs and scouring the web, I have spotted lots of fantastic wedding ideas, and I feel obliged to share them with the world! Hopefully they will inspire everyone else as much as they have inspired me.
