I don't mind that about the cake cutting though, DH and i are a team but there are times where he does help to guide me to the right path the same as i do for him.

I dated a guy whose surname was long.bottom. I told him I wouldn't take his name if we got married.
I don't think that surname goes with anyone's first name

Agreed LOL. I was more trying to point out the meaning behind certain things. A traditional wedding is full of symbolic gestures of the woman's subservience to 'her man'.
I'm not trying to say that if you cut your cake that way then you're a subservient, down trodden wife - merely pointing out the traditional symbolism behind the act.

I'd take it even if it sounded ridiculous.
Part of marrying DH was taking on his name and I wouldn't keep my maiden name in any circumstance after marriage.

Id never take my fiance's surname, no matter what.

I took my husband's name and as it is from a NESB background I always have to spell it!
BUT I did it because he asked me to and to him being a family is sharing a name.
My daughter has her father's name ( my ex) as my ex father in law asked for that and as I respect him very much ( and still do) I was happy to do that for him.
I simply don't care about my maiden name. I love my family, my dad and mum and my grandparents etc and I am proud of my ancestors but using or not using my name does not change that.
I am not my name - I am me.
