Do I REALLY need these?
Posted: Jul 19, 2010 7:50 PM

This may be a stupid question but do I need to buy a knife and cake server for my reception or does the venue supply them? Do I also need to buy my own bride and groom toasting champagne glass? I honestly can care less about these items and I'm trying to save money any way I can. Thanks!

It depends on your venue. Our venue provides both, and it said so in the wedding package description.

Did you get any paper work from you venue that lists what is included in your package? If not, I would ask them.

Our venue provided both - even where we were given toasting goblets as an engagement present, it wasn't worth the effort of hauling them to our OOT wedding. I emailed the coordinator at the venue to ask and they had a set of each to provide. (Thank goodness).

If your venue does not provide, you can get some nice cake cutter/server sets at Walmart for about $10.

For our toasting glasses? I went to Dollar Tree and Hobby Lobby. Dollar Tree for the glasses and Hobby Lobby for the hot glue, ribbon, and floral things. I made 12 for about $18, so everyone in the wedding party got one.

I just saw some in Walmart last night too. The ones that I saw were just under $15 each for a set of flutes or the cake knife and server set. So you could get both for about $30!!

Thanks, I'll go visit Walmart and family dollar. I have also seen them in the craft stores. Orientaltrading.com also has some as well. My venue said they don't provide the cake server. They said usually brides and grooms buy that for keepsake so it's nice to have, but they do provide us with a knife if we don't come with one. I'll go look around for the ceapest one.

I was looking on eBay too, they were some fairly inexpensive ones there as well. I work for Michaels and ours aren't necessarily the cheapest server sets, but if you use a coupon, its worth it!
