definitely not!! i’ve never understood doing that i guess, but as always, to each her own. I’ll be spending $$$ on hair and makeup too and wouldn’t want to ruin it 😛

We will not be doing that. I don’t understand it either.

IT is totally like me and my Fiance to DO some cake smashing.

But I am really worried about getting greasy icing on my dress or ruining my make-up so I think we are going to go with no cake smashing or just cute icing dab on the nose or something!

No way.  I paid way too much for my makeup.

No way! I would be angry, plus FH doesn’t like to waste food, and the cake costs too much per slice.

Hell no. My husband and I hand-fed each other small pieces of cake, but there was no way in hell we’d smash it in each other’s faces.

Nope, not us!!! I’d kick his butt…but luckily he feels the same! 😛

There was a similar thread where someone posted about an article saying cake smashers are more likely to divorce…which I thought was a pretty bizare fact and I don’t think there was much “research” to it but it was interesting for sure

I don’t mind when other people do it though, my friend and her hubby did and they looked pretty cute 😉 just not my style

No we won’t be! We have discussed it and both think it’s tacky. Actually I read that some (older) people might find it disrespectful. The feeding of the cake is supposed to be like you nurturing each other and it’s very meaningful so smashing the cake is kind of making a mockery of it.

i’m with you other bees –  no cake smashing thank you very much! (i just asked Fiance and he agrees as well). i don’t think i’ve actually been to a wedding where the cake wound up on the face and not in the mouth. hmmm…works for me that way no one will be expecting it.

No way!  I initiated a conversation before the wedding where we both made an agreement not to do it.  It was really hard, when we were actually feeding each other because all of his groomsmen were sitting very close to where we were standing and they were all egging me on.  I was soooo tempted but was afraid that he might follow and smash on my face too.  So, I resisted and was glad that I didn’t do it!
