In my young days, you didn't eat the wedding cake at the wedding. You were given a slice in a little box to take home. The same boxes could be used to send or give pieces of cake to people who did not attend the wedding/were not invited.

(Remember that weddings used to be much smaller in general, with the guests being immediate family and a few close friends rather than the current trend for inviting everyone with even the most tenuous of connections. The boxes would be sent to relatives who lived too far away to come, and given to ones wider circle of friends and to work colleagues)

I remember being told that you were SUPPOSED to sleep with it under your pillow rather than eat it, and I did know people who kept cake they had been given in this way as a souvenir.

I did that after my Auntie Chris got married, I had a bit of wedding cake and put it under my pillow.

I like wedding cake, but it is a bit rich.
