I love looking at pictures of beautiful cakes being cut at weddings. I think it's adorable when they match the wedding decor. My cousin even had a custom cake top designed to match her and her husband's outfit. You can get the most elegant looking cake knives with your names carved on them on Etsy. You can go above and beyond with your wedding cake. I just didn't care.
By the time we had settled on a wedding date, all the big names for Pakistani hair and makeup in the GTA had already been booked.
Apart from the Diclectin I mentioned earlier, there were a few other things that helped make my experience a little more manageable.
