i wouldn’t do it, too money grabbing to me, but if voting with pieces of paper or marbles or something already provided by the b&g sure 🙂

No, I don’t think this is appropriate for weddings.  I agree with PP – if it was with paper, sure, but money?  No, that’s rude.

I agree with the PP about how it is rude asking for money, unless you notate that any money raised for it will be donated to a charity or something.  That would be the only exception in asking for money to be counted as a vote, IMO.

@Jacqui90:  Agreed! Especially on the part about not doing it with money…it just kinda drives me crazy that there are now so many events guests are supposed to give money at. First an engagement party, then the wedding shower, the dollar dance, the wedding gift itself, then there’s that other jug someone else posted that you’re apparantely supposed to put on your table for honeymoon donations…it’s just all too much. You invited your guests to share your event with you and threw a party, they gave you a nice gift. That should be it as far as money at the wedding goes, IMO.

No, I’m never going to approve asking for money at a wedding as cute or clever.

I might do it with tokens instead, like pebbles or something related to your theme.

Even though this is less tacky than the dollar dance, I still wouldn’t do it. Plus knowing our friends, I would be the one getting caked and that’s not cool with me.

Nope. Nope. I’m just going to echo what everyone else has said. I can’t deal with all of the “cute” ideas for getting even MORE money out of your wedding guests. I’ve seen a trend of cute little boxes that say “for the honeymoon” on them, even?? Just stop it.

Am I the only one that ot really exasperated with the incorrect apostrophe?  “who wear’s the cake”.  

UGH.  So this is money-grubbing and bad grammar.  Plus, I’m not a fan of the cake smashing “tradition”.  It’s too aggressive for my taste.

I would never do this for two reason:

a) I don’t like asking for money at a wedding.

b) If I got cake smashed into my face I would lose it. I was the farthest thing from a bridezilla but I made it very clear to my DH from the beginning of wedding planning that smashing cake in my face was not an option.

I think it’s not cool, smashing cake in the bride’s face or groom’s face. It’s belittling and disrespectful.
