I think it’s funny and everyone will expect us to do it as my Mum is famous for smushing cake into peoples faces at parties, weddings, dinners…wherever she feels like it. For her surprise 50th birthday we had a cake fight picnic where everyone bought a cake and covered her in it to get her back after all these years. It was the best party ever.
But I really don’t want to do it myself. As others have said hair & make up is expensive and cream/oil stains are hard to remove from dresses.

The only acceptable cake smashing is done at infants’ birthday parties when they get the smush cake so the guests don’t have to eat kid schmootz.

I didn’t want cake in my face because I have glasses. Therefore, if cake got on my glasses, I would be rendered blind until I could clean them off (and cake smears and the icing smears and it would’ve just been a mess lol). Thankfully, Darling Husband didn’t think that aspect of cake cutting was fun, so I was saved. 😀
Also, fun fact: my mom had little glasses with assorted nuts on the groom’s table and she kept telling everyone they were “Nut shots”. Mom, no. Just, no. *facepalm*

Neither of us like this idea. It’s just going to leave you sticky and feeling grim so no. We will eat cake in the usual way.

It didn’t happen. The day of, I told him if he even thought about it that I would remove his testicles and murder him. Luckily, it didn’t happen.

I have a snooty co-worker who did this a few years ago at her wedding. I think it’s trashy and low class.

I would never do it! That being said, I only think its rude and disrespectful if it was still done knowing the other person wouldn’t be happy about it. THAT is just disrespectful and I’d be so pissed.

If it’s what both people in a couple wants to do, whatever, go ahead…but it often seems like it was one person’s idea of fun, without consulting the other – and that’s just painful to watch. Totally cringeworthy, because it gives the partner the message of “Your personal comfort means less to me than getting a big laugh from strangers.” No, thank you! We will be using forks, as we have for decades now.

Not my thing, but it’s cute when I see it! I think it’s fine so long as both get it in the face! It’s a little awkward when one does it and the other doesn’t.

heck no! I think it’s just really tasteless and tacky.

I think it’s up to the couple, but like other bees have said, both people should be in agreeance about it. I personally hate watching it as a guest, plus my Fiance has a beard, so we’re not doing it.

NEVER!!! We are not throwing a formal party to behave like children. Fiance is perfectly aware of my feelings on this subject and he 100% agrees. We hate having to witness weddings where they do the cake smash. Its so awkward to watch.

thankfully the Fiance is against this as much as i am. It’s not even a matter of the whole hair/clothing thing for us- it’s just stupid to us- i get the tradition of it, but we’re not traditional people, no garter, no boquet being tossed, we’re walking down the isle together etc.
however, I know a lot of couples that wanted to do it and because they were happy doing it, it was adorable. with that being said, it’s still not for me.

Omg – I can not even write this comment without getting mad about this. WHHHHY? I think it is so freaking rude AND a little trashy! At my brother’s wedding my bro did NOT smash cake in his new wife’s face (he was raised right) but she turned around and SMUSHHHED it all over his face and head (he shaves his head). He had blue frosting all over his suit and was disgusing and sticky all night. I was not pleased and you could see it on my face in the wedding video….oops!!
