What's going on your cake table?

I've been sorting through pictures and seen some cute ideas of things to put on the cake table. Wondering if anyone is doing anything out of the ordinary on theirs? I plan to have the usual toasting glasses, cake knife and server and cake stand with cake on it...
I found this photo which I thought was kind of cute, so I bought something similar to do on our table. Am I missing anything?
Which table does my bouquet go on?
Thanks!

    We had a hurrican vase with a big candle in it and then votives around that.  Pics in married bio.

    The "I DO" letters you posted a pic of are VERY popular.  Also personalized cocktail napkins, or the bride and bridesmaid bouquets are good options too.

    We used my bouquet as the centerpiece for our table.  I had a vase set up with the centerpiece, empty, and when we got into the room and sat down, I popped my bouquet into it.

    I had 3 empty vases that mine and my BMs bouquets went in, fresh rose petals, votives and a little sign that said "Love." 





    I'm not a fan of the letters but they are very popular.

    I bought 3 square glass vases for each of my bridesmaid bouquets to go in. I'm thinking 1 on the guest book table & 2 on the cake table, along with our toasting flutes/cake knife set. We'll see what it looks like with everything together. My bouquet will go on our sweetheart table.

    I think I am going to do letters like in your pic. But they will say LOVE IS SWEET!

    Once I saw a wedding where they had nice framed old school photos of the bride's and groom's parents cutting the cake on their own wedding days.  Really sweet.

    Be extra careful where you put the cake table, the stuff on the walls will be in all your cake cutting pictures.  Stuff like fire extinguishers & bathroom signs.

    we are putting one or two of our engagement pictures on the table for sure and possibily flower petals or candles... I haven't really thought quite that far yet.

    We are going to keep it simple and just have flower pedals on the cake table.

    I think rose petals are just fine, too. I, like many people, have divorced parents so that idea about putting pictures of your parents cake cutting ceremony would just be uncomfortable. Tongue out
