So I’ve seen those weddings where the couple stuffs the wedding cake into each others faces instead of eating it nicely. I’d love to take it a step farther at my wedding and have a straight up food fight instead. I’m trying to figure out how I could do this without ruining our fancy clothes?
I don’t care if the cake is even real… in fact I like the idea that it’s not cake at all, just a fake cake for appearances to fool everyone until bam! food fight!
Any creative ideas? What could we throw at each other that wouldn’t mark the clothes but that could somehow be made to look like a cake? Even if it was just stuff kept in a box and the box covered in wedding cake icing with a fake top that we reach into…

I know you didn’t ask for opinions, but I can’t hold back. I think this is a terrible idea and would urge you to reconsider. A wedding is not the place for a food fight- nor a fight of any kind.

You are not going to be able to have a food fight without getting it on your clothes. And if you did manage it, what would you do then? You’d have to be in the bathroom for the next 30 minutes cleaning yourself up and redoing makeup and getting cake out of your hair instead of fellowshipping with your guests. I don’t have any creative ideas, because I say don’t go for it!

Just go for it and don’t worry about getting stains…just make sure you do it at the very end of the reception – it won’t be fun walking around all sticky for the rest of the night. One of my best friends had a really messy food fight with her husband as a trash the dress session – they really got all covered in everything from whipped cream to choco sauce. Still her dress cleaned out ok afterwards. She’d expected to ruin it, but that didn’t happen. If you have a really sensitive dress, like real silk, you may need to check first though. In her case her dress was as good as new after cleaning. And check out this couple http://www.chocolatesuze.com/2011/04/13/chocolatesuze-noods-trash-the-wedding-dress-food-fight-photo-shoot … do you think you’d get messier than that ? I think it would be fun to do something crazy at my wedding, stir things up a bit…

Is your venue going to be ok with that?

Love cake too much to waste any. 🙂
If you’re set on doing this, why not do it during a day after shoot? I imagine guests and venue staff might be ticked if food starts flying.

I agree with planning this on a different day– out of courtesy for the venue, staff, your guests, etc.

Well I’m not the one who started the thread, but if it’s at my wedding and we decide to go for something like this we’ll do it at the very end and move that part to the lawn outside – our wedding is in the summer anyhow and the lawn would be easy to hose off afterwards. Besides, we wouldn’t have stuff flying through the air, more like smearing it onto each other I think. But as for your guests, it depends on how your guests and friends are. Some crowds will love it, others won’t. You have to know your friends, especially if you want to go for something that’s a bit out of the frame.

I think your venue will be annoyed, and you’ll probably end up with extra cleaning charges to fix the mess. It may also cost you overtime. This has the potential to get way out of hand very, very quickly, and I’d advise against it.
Plus, as a guest, I’d be really annoyed with this. I never understood food fights and found them to be tacky and annoying. If I was at a wedding and someone threw a piece of cake at me, I will not be held responsible for any punches thrown…. or just leaving the reception as soon as it starts with a bitter taste in my mouth.

@caybaybay: An idea for you, get a fake cake with an open top, cut the slice and let him feed you a piece, you shove your piece in his face, he grabs the cake and goes to look like he is dropping it on your head, but instead when he tips it, sparkly glitter confetti fall out of it.

Okay! I seriously love the last comment about the glitter! way too fun!

If I was your friend and a food fight broke out and I got food on me, I don’t think we would be friends any more especially if I found out you planned it, just sayin…..
