Will you be smashing cake in each other’s faces at your wedding??
Yesterday I was reminding my Fiance for the 100th time that I don’t want cake in my face at our wedding! Hahaha 🙂 My make-up will have taken too much time and money that day to get messed up.
Where we live it’s actually not even a tradition, though. Cake in the face is more of a Birthday thing here.

I’ve told my SO that if he smashes cake in my face at our wedding I will file for divorce! lol

Hahaha Fiance and I were having this conversation last night. I made it VERY clear that there will be no cake smashing in my face!! (not that he would ever even think about it)

Someone posted on here the other day that at a wedding she was at the bride not only did not want this and new husband did it anyway, but he also broke her nose! She had the marriage annulled.
And no, we did not do this at our wedding. It helped we did not have cake, but even if we did we would have skipped it. Neither of us likes this “tradition” at all. I find nothing funny or cute about it to be perfectly honest.

Hell no there will be NO cake smashing of any kind. Fiance would never think to put anything in my face so I know I don’t even have to bring it up.

While some people dont mind cake in the face and think its funny or cute, I hate it. I think its disrespectful esp. on a wedding day. While I’m not vain nor care if I get dirty, I would mind if I got cake on my face with nice makeup done, plus icing in my necklace and on my dress? Thanks, but no thanks.

I find it very disrespectful. Not the way I want to start my married life. I know it’s routed in an ancient tradition, but I think it’s a big no-no.

We had this talk last night. He definitely wants to do it, but me on the other hand, who is considering a $8K dress…. thinks that if smashed cake even gets NEAR that dress, he’s going to die.
But, I don’t want to do the whole big cutting the cake deal anyway.

Absolutely not! Maybe a dollop of icing on the nose but no cake smashing. Plus Fiance is too respectful to do that anyway.
Are you guys using forks or fingers to feed each other?
I can’t decide which is better.

Hell no, thank God Fiance doesn’t like it either.

I really dont want to either. The amount of time I will be in the chair for hair and makeup, so not worht it. Besides I never understood that part. But there have been funny pics from other weddins Ive been to.
I have also told my Fiance NO cake in the face. And I will remind him probably a hundred times before the wedding. 🙂

I think it might have been funny or cute the first time it happened way back in 1919, but honestly, I find it antiquated, and a little overdone. No thanks.

Not happening! Fiance & I talked about it and thankfully neither of us want to smash cake in each others faces, he gets enough cake in the face every birthday anyways 😉

I talked to my fiance about this and I told him I do NOT want this done. He said he will and I should “lighten up” about it because its “tradition” but I clearly told him that’s not a wise idea if he plans on getting ANY kind of sex that night or following weeks/months afterwards lol
I think he gets the idea now. But yea, I think it’s childish like what you do with your child’s first birthday and they’re full of cake and everyone is all ooohing and eating up the cuteness. But after spending money to do your hair, makeup, dress, jewelry ugh I think it’s stupid, embarrassing and very disrespectful.

@PoeticDoveInLA: You could point out to him that it came out of an ancient Roman custom in which the groom broke bread over the bride’s head to sybolize breaking the hymen and asserting his dominance. It’s hard to argue that it’s acceptable to smash cake given what it was born out of.
