What should you do about cutting your wedding cake if it's a non-traditional one, like a cupcake cake? Our experts weigh in on wedding desserts and more in our daily wedding etiquette post.

We're having a cupcake wedding cake. Do we cut into a cupcake together or skip the custom?

If you still want to have a "cake moment," you and your husband can each hold your own cupcake and take a small nibble (don't put them back!). Alternatively, you can purchase a small round cake to cut into for photos.
