Love Southern wedding traditions and want to include them in your wedding? We wrote our e-book just for you!

I was so excited when I saw a Southern Tradition feature on our calendar, as tradition in any form is one of my favorite things! I especially love how strong and deep tradition lies here in the South — it’s woven right into the fabric of our days.

When it comes to Southern wedding traditions, I find the groom’s cake to be an especially fun one! Groom’s cakes can be traced back to England’s Victorian era, when there were three cakes at a wedding — the wedding cake, which was served to the guests, the groom’s cake, which was served to the groomsmen, and the bride’s cake, which was served to the bridesmaids.

The earliest groom’s cakes were actually fruitcakes – ick! Thankfully, fruitcake no longer rules as the flavor of choice, but groom’s cakes are still usually made of dark chocolate with fruit and/or liqueur, maybe to contrast with the wedding cake, which as y’all know is usually white or light colored.

We’re happy to say that even after the popularlity of groom’s cakes lessened elsewhere in the U.S. after making the hop over from England, this sweet tradition is still going strong in the South. We like that it’s a special way to give recognition to the handsome beau on a day that can be a bit bride-centric.

Clearly, you can’t go wrong with a chocolate cake! These days, though, we’re seeing an influx of groom’s cakes customized to the gent of honor’s favorite hobbies and flavors. Think the red velvet armadillo (or armadilla, as we say around these parts) cake in Steel Magnolias. Alma maters and favorite teams are ripe for the picking, too!

When researching this Southern tradition, we dug up this funny little fact: apparently, the groomsmen used to be responsible for decorating the groom’s cake the day of the wedding! Can you imagine?? I don’t know if they’d be able to replicate some of these fabulous designs…

Have a groom that doesn’t love cake? (My handsome hubby is in that camp!) We love these clever groom’s “cakes” that earn their quotation marks — a crepe “cake” on the left, and an Oreo “cake” on the right!

Crepe cake photo by Eric Kelley via Southern Weddings and Oreo cake from Martha Stewart

Like most traditions, the groom’s cake has evolved over the years, and sometimes, it’s not a cake at all! Try serving his favorite dessert, or ask his mom to whip up some of his childhood sweets, like MarLa and Sager did, below. I could definitely get on board with those Krispy Kremes!

Wondering when the perfect time to serve the groom’s cake is? Many couples prefer to offer the groom’s cake at the rehearsal dinner, a fitting time, since the groom’s family often hosts that evening. That way, you also won’t have to worry about the aesthetic of the wedding and groom’s cake clashing, since they’re often very different!

Our final favorite, hilarious piece of lore surrounding the groom’s cake is this: Legend has it that if an unmarried woman sleeps with a slice of groom’s cake under her pillow, she’ll dream of her future husband. Not sure how your single friends would feel if they were singled out (haha) for a boxed slice of cake, but it could be cute to tie on a little tag explaining the tradition!

What’s the craziest groom’s cake (or groom’s sweet) you’ve seen? The last wedding I went to, the groom had a life-size guitar made of cinnamon roll cake – it was divine!

Landon Jacob, Scott Hopkins, Spindle Photography, Ali Harper, and Ashton Events are delightful members of our Blue Ribbon Vendor Directory!

    […] Fun fact: the groomsmen were supposed to be in charge of decorating their own cake on the day of the wedding. We're sure there would have been a lot of cakes gone un-decorated, back in the day… […]

    Oh, hands down VOWS PRINT – GOLD is my favorite. 1. Lindsay Letters is the bomb.com. 2. Its gold foil almost reflects how beautiful the words are in this print. Those words aren’t plain or black, gray, red, etc. They are gold and shiny just like the words that are written. Those vows are delicate and genuine just like this beautiful gold print. Love it too, too much!

Natalie + Shobie’s wedding is a wonderful example of bringing the South to wherever you are. Though their wedding took place in Colorado, Shobie is a tried and true Southern gent and their wedding boasted details from home like cowboy boots, antiques, lace and mason jars — all appropriate additions since it was Shobie’s Southern drawl that won Natalie over when they first met! Y’all know I can’t let my favorite string lights go unmentioned. N + S made it their own by hanging adorable tin cans with heart shapes punched through them. It was the perfect way to light up the gorgeous barn they said “I do” in front of and celebrated in.

The Southern Weddings Gals are sending big hugs to Cassidy Brooke for sharing this wedding with us!

Describe your wedding flowers: Simple. I loved all the flowers because it they were so personal. My mother arranged all of them. As a little girl she worked in her father’s flower shop for years and since he passed away last year, it was an honor to have my mother create these beauties in his honor.

Tell us about finding your wedding dress: My friends kept telling me that I would find my dress at the first shop that I went to. I didn’t believe them. After trying on so many dresses, we were literally walking out the door when I saw it in the window. I walked back to the counter and asked if I could try just one more on. When I put that dress on, I knew it was the one!

We did a first look because we wanted to be able to be in awe of each other and tell each other how great we looked. We also wanted to pray and have a moment before God before we set out on this new adventure. It was also really convenient with pictures!

Did you write your own vows? We did our vows in a unique way. We wanted to respect the tradition of vows and we wanted to make our own, so we did both! My favorite thing about writing our vows was that it was so personal. We have this saying, “I promise, promise.” We know that a lot of people say that they promise but then never follow through, so we know when we really mean it we say it twice just for good measure.

What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day? There are too many to count! I do remember that, while we were taking photos, Cassidy would stop me and tell me to just sit in the moment and soak it all in. I really appreciated that she helped not only to capture the great pictures, but great moments!

What was the biggest challenge you had to overcome while planning your wedding? Procrastination
What range did your wedding budget fall into? Less than $10,000
What is the one thing you are most happy you splurged on? My dress, photography and food!
What advice do you have for folks currently planning a wedding? Pace yourself and get a DJ.

Describe your wedding cake or dessert: Amazing!! My sister is a chef and she made our cake! It was raspberry with cream cheese frosting. We also had chocolate and vanilla cupcakes for everyone.

How did the two of you meet? Tell us your story. We meet at a progressive dinner party through friends. I was washing the dishes and Shobie came up and asked, “Can I dry your dishes” with that sweet country mouth. I was hooked.
Describe the proposal. It was so amazing and it became even more amazing after he popped the question! It was actually on our one-year anniversary. Shobie picked me up with white roses from my house and then we headed to our favorite Italian restaurant, Paravicini’s in Old Colorado City. I had no clue that it was coming! We had an amazing time eating great food and reminiscing on the past year and how crazy it was. Just after we ordered dessert, he said “I really love you.” I replied with “and I love you,” thinking nothing of it (because he reminds me so often). Then he started to slide toward the edge of the booth. I thought, “Oh, he is heading to the bathroom after a comment like that? Weird.” Then he proceeded to say, “So I talked to your dad a while ago and I was wondering if you would be my wife?” Of course I said yes!! When I started crying he told me to stop! All of our friends were waiting outside to greet us and take pictures with us! After, we celebrated with our friends we headed to my parents’ house and told the whole family. There was just one more thing he planned to top the night off. We drove far out into the Colorado Mountains at a secret place we love to watch the stars from. As we were setting up all the blankets in the back of the truck, he told me to come and sit on the edge of the truck. Then, asked me to take my shoes off. He proceeded to pour warm water from a thermos in to a big pot and washed my feet and told me that he wanted to love me like Jesus. We read scripture, prayed and started dreaming about our life to come!
In what month did you get married? September
How many guests attended your wedding? 200 people
What Southern details or traditions did you include in your celebration? What was Southern about your wedding? We got married in front of a barn! My husband always wears boots, so the whole bridal party wore boots that day. There were also a lot of antiques everywhere.
