Our cake baker is a friend-or. I think I've said that. Here's the part I haven't mentioned. She's Mark's ex-girlfriend. They dated for almost 3 years during high school and college.
I read a board post on Weddingbee recently where a girl was flipping out because her boyfriend invited his ex-hookup-buddy to the wedding. I may or may not have told her to get over it.
What bothers me is the extraordinary number of people who have told me not to eat the cake. They are concerned that it will be poisoned. Or terrible. Um. No. Please take your insecurities about your parter's ex and go project them on someone else.
I have it on good authority that our baker's cakes are delicious. She was thrilled with the flavor we chose. We also had similar ideas about decor, and since our baker has to see us at holidays, she's more willing to listen and do what we want than somebody we just have to pay money to.
We met awhile ago and I think we agreed on something inspired by this, but with less flowers and more ferns and moss and leaves and maybe some turtles(!) instead of birds...
(source)I don't really remember. But I do know that it will be delicious, and that I'm not stressing over finding a cake baker who will make a cake for less than $7 per slice.
Exes at a wedding? Where do you stand?
