    Imma do it. I love that shit. It means you don’t take yourself too serously. I hope it isn’t too much smashing as it is frosting on the nose

    I said no to both. As for cake in the face, no thank you. Anyways, I don’t think its for us, doesn’t fit our personalities.

    No. I am refusing to even do a cake cutting so no feeding each other cake and no smushing.

    @MsMeow:  I am normally not a fan of the “Clean your plate! There are children starving in Africa!” line of thinking, but this IS where I come down on the cake-smashing thing. It’s just such a blatant waste at an already decadent event.

     

    While the cake smashing is unlikely to be explicitly violent (except in those cases where one partner really SHOVES it, which are the only ones where it actually disgusts me), it does have echoes of discontent and anger that I’m not interested in putting on display for my friends and family on such a day.

    And I don’t want cake in my hair!

    I was NOT ok with it.  I could careless at other couple’s weddings, but not mine.  He wanted to smash the cake and I did not want to dance.  So the compromise was, he wouldn’t smash the cake in my face if I would dance a first dance with him.  Worked perfect! lol  Probably the easiest compromise of our marriage/relationship. hahahaha

    No way no how.  Plus we had cupcakes …. and they had navy blue flowers on top.  I would have looked lovely with navy blue dye all over my face.  Altho by that time I was pretty drunk, I might not have cared lol.

    Here’s the thing… I would prefer that my Fiance not do that. But knowing his personality, there’s a chance that he will. And myself being playful as well, would be tempted to ‘accidentally’ smudge some on his nose too. If it happened I couldn’t help but laugh! How could I get mad at the man I love over being playful? (One of the reasons I fell in love with him). I would prefer that he didn’t do it, but if he did I wouldn’t throw a hissy fit over it, and I would get him back with a bigger piece!

    Seriously??? There are some uptight people in here. 

    If its not your thing.. Fine don’t do it! 

    Tacky, trashy, divorce worthy?? I think that’s ridiculous. 

    My fiancé and I are lots of fun. We pull pranks on each other. We play fight. We like to get dirty. 

    I told him as long as it didnt get in my eyes or dress I was fine with it. It shows our personality And every picture I’ve seen is so cute. Not trashy at all. Plus it’s at the end of the night. What do you need makeup for at the end of the night?!

    But whatever. If you think having a little fun is trashy and tacky than I guess I’m trashy and tacky haha.

    We didn’t smash the cake into each other’s faces, so much as lovingly carresed it all over. Then we licked it off of each other.

    Intresting to see how many people find this to be “rude and disrespectful.” If it’s completely unexpected, then yes, I could see that. But do you all really think that cake smooshing is a completely unscripted moment all of the time?? We both agreed that we wanted to do it, and I’m so happy that we did. We got an amazing set of photos out of it, and I laugh in joy every time I see them.

    Also, to the few who made comments about divorce rates and cake smooshing… I tend to look at it as the other way around… Any time I’ve seen someone not doing the cake smoosh, I feel like they must be so prim and proper all the time, and I get worried about their ability to take things in stride and not be so serious. Maybe that just comes from friends who I’ve seen not do the smoosh, who were very full of themselves, and couldn’t take a joke or even a lighthearted moment creeping into their wedding.

    Also, just wanted to add, that calling things like this “Tacky” “Trashy” “Juvinile” and other such terms, go against the rules of this website. You wouldn’t appreciate me going around calling the details of your weddings tacky. Please be respectful, ladies. I did the cake smoosh, and I would appreciate you not passing judgement on my wedding just because you don’t want to take part in the tradition.

    We hadn’t planned on it but last minute I did it to him.  Actually it made for a cute picture.  Neither of us really care for cake.  I thought it was fun!!!  But he did win.  Lol. Heres the picture one of our guest took.
