Will you and your future hubby be smashing cake into each others face? I was at a wedding last weekend and I only saw the after results, but appently the groom did this to the bride. She was mad and stormed off to the bathroom (which I think she could’ve handled it differently in front of the guests). My hubby and I didn’t do this at our wedding…and I don’t even remember it being a topic before the wedding. So…who’s smashing and why?

definitely not!! i’ve never understood doing that i guess, but as always, to each her own. I’ll be spending $$$ on hair and makeup too and wouldn’t want to ruin it 😛

We will not be doing that. I don’t understand it either.

IT is totally like me and my Fiance to DO some cake smashing.
But I am really worried about getting greasy icing on my dress or ruining my make-up so I think we are going to go with no cake smashing or just cute icing dab on the nose or something!

No way. I paid way too much for my makeup.

No way! I would be angry, plus FH doesn’t like to waste food, and the cake costs too much per slice.

Hell no. My husband and I hand-fed each other small pieces of cake, but there was no way in hell we’d smash it in each other’s faces.

no. i paid too much for my dress for it to get covered in icing and/or raspberry filling. not gonna happen.

Nope, not us!!! I’d kick his butt…but luckily he feels the same! 😛
There was a similar thread where someone posted about an article saying cake smashers are more likely to divorce…which I thought was a pretty bizare fact and I don’t think there was much “research” to it but it was interesting for sure
I don’t mind when other people do it though, my friend and her hubby did and they looked pretty cute 😉 just not my style

i’ve been to weddings where the bride and groom did this and it was kind of funny but we will not be doing it. like the other bees have said….i’ll be paying too much for my makeup and i’ve already paid too much for my dress. he’s already been warned. if does it…i’ll be a trooper in front of our guests but when no one is looking….ITS ON!!! i dont get mad….I GET EVEN! lol!

No we won’t be! We have discussed it and both think it’s tacky. Actually I read that some (older) people might find it disrespectful. The feeding of the cake is supposed to be like you nurturing each other and it’s very meaningful so smashing the cake is kind of making a mockery of it.

i’m with you other bees – no cake smashing thank you very much! (i just asked Fiance and he agrees as well). i don’t think i’ve actually been to a wedding where the cake wound up on the face and not in the mouth. hmmm…works for me that way no one will be expecting it.

No way! I initiated a conversation before the wedding where we both made an agreement not to do it. It was really hard, when we were actually feeding each other because all of his groomsmen were sitting very close to where we were standing and they were all egging me on. I was soooo tempted but was afraid that he might follow and smash on my face too. So, I resisted and was glad that I didn’t do it!
