So, I’m hoping I’ve convinced my FI that it is not a good idea to smash cake in my face!! I am pretty sure that he won’t.
One of my other BM’s suggested something to me that her mom and dad did at their wedding and I thought it was hilarious and wondering if anyone had seen it done before. When her parents went to feed one another cake, instead of smashing it in one another’s faces, they turned around and hit the MOH and Best Man. I’m not sure if my sister/his brother will be mad or find it funny.
What’s the best cake feeding/smashing you’ve seen at a wedding? Anything different or funny?

I love the ones that are sweet — properly feeding each other, and then maybe doing a dollop of icing on your new spouse’s nose before kissing/eating it off!

I seoncd the "sweet smash" with a sweet kiss at the end.
I’ve never seen anything too awful (and we’re avoiding this at our own wedding be avoiding a cake!)

I was at a family members wedding while doing the cake ‘feeding’ the grooms intoxicate brother came up and took the brides head and smashed it right into the cake! I would have ben livid, but she just smiled and laughed
I told my fiance there better not be any cake smashed into my face because of how much I am spending to upkeep my makeup throughout the day ha ha!

Oh, gawd! That bride (full face in cake) is a good sport. I would have seriously caused a scene.

I told my husband he had better not smash the cupcake in my face…but I think it was more of a challenage to him.
He shoved that cupcake in my face and twisted at my nose, causing a nose FULL of icing. Yep, then the photographer jumped in and started taking lots of photos!
and yep, I did get him back with the cupcake I was holding!

Heh, my fiance and I plan on doing a bit of cake face smashing. Hopefully not a face FULL of cake and I told him not to get it on my dress, but we’ll see what unfolds :p

I know my FI, therefore I will be wearing a lobster bib. Blue icing seems to stain my teeth let alone my wedding dress. It’s all part of the fun!

I’ve seen some really uncomfortable cake smashings, and my Fi agrees that we won’t be doing it. I’ve been to two weddings where the groom just took it too far, and made the bride cry. I DO NOT want that to happen at my wedding, and my Fi doesn’t want to make me cry, so we’ll just feed each other like civilized adults. I think the sweet ones are always the best anyway!

Bruschetta & LatteLove – That’s what I’m hoping for!
I can’t imagine a full face smash, that would be terrible. My family has a history of smearing icing on one another’s faces during birthdays, but they wouldn’t do anything like that at the wedding.

As much fun as being sweet would be, I doubt that will happen at my wedding and I will get a face full of cake. FI told me I should bring a bib. *ominous music & evil laughter*

The best cake feeding/smashing I’ve ever seen was actually when the groom inintentionally dropped the cake down the bride’s dress. I have no idea if he had intended to smash it or not, but the whole reception was almost in tears as she attempted to dig cake and icing out of her cleavage. I think you ladies planning to wear bibs have got the right idea…

I was a bridesmaid in a wedding in Feb. During the cake cutting, the bride and groom both took HUGE pieces to feed each other so we know that they were going to shove it in each others faces.
As the were leaning in to feed eachother, then they turn around and shoved the cake in the maid of honor and best mans faces. I didn’t get a picture but it was pretty cool

OMG, can I just say that I would be mortified if my husband dropped cake down my dress. I think I would be so mad that he would have to spend our honeymoon alone!
I may be in the minority, but I actually HATE the smashing of the cake tradition. I’ve never been one for messes (my mom says that I didn’t want to eat my first birthday cake with my hands) and I just never understand why people would get cake everywhere–especially when you’re spending so much money on hair, makeup and dress! No Thanks! Honestly, I don’t really even want to feed him the cake, we may just cut it together and each take our own bites with a fork!
