While the look of the cake my change with the times, a traditional round three-tier is rare thee days and is being replaced with more edgy and modern ideas, such as a pyramid of cupcakes. The fact that a cake of some sorts will always be there remains a steadfast tradition.
The exchanging of wedding rings is a tradition that's definitely not going to die out any time soon. For centuries people have been exchanging wedding rings because the circle is an ancient symbol of eternal love. In roman times it was not necessarily a ring that was given, but any piece of jewellery to show commitment to the other person and how proud you were to call them your own. While this tradition is as strong as ever, it has changed with the times and nowadays some people are opting to get tattoos of rings on their finger instead.
