    Ehh we’re not having one – the main wedding cake is going to be expensive enough as it is lol Plus, he loves any kind of cake possible so he didn’t feel the need to get anything specifically for him

    Sadly, no! They aren’t common around here at all & we have a small guest list, so we have no need for extra cake (did I just say that? There’s always need for cake.) I am seriously thinking about doing a “grooms cake” for the rehearsal dinner πŸ™‚

    We’re not doing it but we’re having plenty of options with a dessert bar

    I think this is a very regional thing.  I hadn’t even heard of a groom’s cake until I moved to the south.

    We’re having groom’s pie!  My Fiance wanted something of his own, so when I mentioned groom’s cake in passing, he was ALL about it.  However, he doesn’t like doing the same thing as everyone else, so he has decided to get a bunch of pies.  Took me a while to talk him out of making them himself since he’s in med school and I really was pretty sure he wouldn’t have the time for that.  But he’s pretty stoked about it!  (And pies are not all that expensive.)

    i didn’t even know what a grooms cake was until i joined this site πŸ˜›

    but no – we’re doing a cheesecake buffet he LOVES cheesecake so there’s no need.

    @danielle: Do you live in Newburgh?? My Fiance lives just south of you in KY (I’ll be moving there once my visa gets approved!) We always watch movies in Newburgh b/c the Owensboro one is filled w/ punks & cops. πŸ™‚

    Not only are we having an LSU Tigers groom’s cake, but I’m surprising Fiance with a pharmacy cake at our dinner reception to celebrate his graduation the next weekend.  I have a soft spot for cake!

    I didn’t know about the Groom’s cake before weddingbee, so no. We’re not doing one. I like them a lot, though!

    its a southern thing – so if you dont want to have it, outside of the south its not really expected.

    we are having one because its tradition! πŸ™‚ but we might buck tradition and have it at the rehearsal dinner instead of at the reception *gasp*
