FI and I are always kidding around about the zombie apocalypse – like the reason our squirrels are so fat is because we would use them as a possible food source, etc. Anyway, I came upon the following cake design and thought it was perfectly suited for our wedding. Sadly, FI said no!

I’m with your FI… too bad he didn’t like it – it would make a great groom’s cake!

You could also order a small one for your bachelorette! It’ll be in lots of pictures that way!

@trueblue14: I wanted to do something like this (I wanted us slaying a boss), but my FI said no too. I guess our guys are just more traditional.

A lot depends on the tone of your wedding.
Formal? Not so much.
The thing in the back of my mind is “what would grandma think?” It doesn’t have to drive your entire decision, obviously, but something to consider.

It would be an awesome bachelorette cake!
And I’m totally with @gingerkitten: on this. If you’re inviting anyone of your parent’s generation or older, be at least somewhat considerate. Fun has its place, but you’re going to be seeing grandma for a lot of family get togethers and events in the future.

If not Groom’s cake, maybe 1st anniversary?

Goodness, I would say no too.

I’m totally with you — that cake is great! I’d totally beg and please to convince him to agree. 😉
ETA: Weddings are stuffy. I don’t think every wedding, formal or not has to adhere to the “norms” that everything has to be pretty and frilly and delicate and don’t do that, grandma might be offended! This isn’t about you, or grandma, or someone who won’t get it. This is about the bride and groom and if it fits their personality, that’s all that really matters. Trust me, Grandma will get over it.

Maybe he’d like it if it were a little less gorey. Zombie getting his head cut off by a lawnmower IS a little extreme 🙂

@FisherQueen: But’s that’s my favorite part! I was considering have the actual cake part decorated very traditionally and having the same cake topper theme going on.
@nerdybird: I knooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooow! Sigh!
