Hey bees, so my sister is a wedding photographer, and I make wedding cakes. We have talked many times about grooms that we call “cake smashers”.
These are the grooms that are the most grumpy, the most diconnected from wedding planning, hate having lots of pictures taken and make it hard on the photographers. And of course, they ALWAYS smach the cake in the brides’ face.
We can always tell which grooms are “cake smashers” before the wedding even takes place. She’ll call me after the weddings and say “OMG, he shoved it all over her, and the icing was blue! I felt so bad for her.” There are many vendors who say that they can judge which couples will be divorced just by watching how the couple feeds each other the cake. Here’s just one example http://www.kevinathompson.com/how-i-predict-divorce-based-on-the-wedding-cake/.
Tonight my sister had a wedding. The groom shoved the cake all over her face, and THEN SHOVED HER TO THE GROUND. The cake was teal blue, luckily it only ruined her make up and not her dress. Her lashed were ruined and she had to wipe all of her make up off. So disrespectful.
So bees, any good cake smash stories? I’m interested to hear!

edepp2010: Thank my lucky stars I dont have any of these horror stories to share but I once saw a video where the groom smashed the cake in his new wife’s face and broke her nose! It turned into an all out-and-out brawl!
My fiancee and I agreed from the door there will be NO smashing cake in the other’s face. Its out and out rude and more over disrespectful to the person I love. Why would you want to shove food in your wife/husband’s face? It just reminds me of “What’s Love Got To Do With It” and I prefer not to have any such reminders on our special day. Yea, no thanks!

I don’t even want to do this tradition at all, but somehow I know we’ll end up doing it anyway.
My fiance and I already had a discussion on things that would not be okay during the wedding.. like not showing up at all, smashing the cake in each others faces, him lifting up my skirt super high up when he’s getting the garter, ect.

I haaaaate smashing cake! I think it’s so rude and mean. However, my DH totally disagrees and sees it as playful. He didn’t smash it at our wedding but he wanted to. I think if he had, it would’ve been very little and cute but still. No thank you!

I don’t mind when ppl do it, but my dh absolutely said no to any cake smashing. He said its rude and disrespectful not playful. We both fed each other a piece with a fork. I’m glad we did it this way.
My cousin had her husband smash cake n it got in her hair n there were chunks n flakes in her hair the rest of the night. Yuck.

I personally think it’s a little immature to smash cake in your new spouse’s face; it can be cute, but if my fiance does that to me, I would be so angry! I want my hair and makeup to look pretty until I get home, not come off in a big glob of frosting.

My husband forgot to feed me the first bite and helped himself. It was pretty funny and he told me later he completely forgot about that part and just wanted to eat cake.
My stepdad smashed cake in my mom’s face. She was so upset but they are still happily married 24 years later.

I smashed cake in my husband’s face. I hestitated at first to clue him in that I was gonna do it, but he didn’t end up doing it back. He wasn’t upset about it, our guests seemed to think it was funny *shrugs*

No cake smashing, but he did bite down on my finger. Then he thought “hmm, crunchy cake?” So he bit down harder LOL

edepp2010: I never really understood why someone might want to smash cake into anyone else’s face, especially at a formal event such as a wedding. There is so much money spent on outfits, make up, and the cake to ruin it…and for what? It’s awkward watching it because I don’t find it funny. At least if a couple nicely feeds each other cake, there’s an “aww” moment.

edepp2010: We never discussed cake smashing because I kind of wanted him to do whatever he wanted at that point. I didn’t realize cake smashing could be a glorified punch in the face with a cake-wrapped fist…had I known that was something people do I might’ve discussed it with him in advance but thank goodness he fed it to me nicely.
And just ewww to the ground shover…..my dad, brother, and uncles would’ve probably made me a widow two hours after the ceremony.
