Choosing a wedding cake is often no cake walk (har, har, har). We asked our wedding etiquette experts some tough questions, from when to cut the cake, to what to serve instead of cake.

I adore chocolate but my fiancé is highly allergic to it. Can we have two wedding cakes?

Absolutely. In fact, you can give a nod to tradition and have both a bride's cake (with chocolate layers and fillings) and a groom's cake featuring his favorite flavor combination.
