    One of the first things I said when we got engaged was “You will NOT smash the cake in my face.” LOL

    It’s so interesting to see the strong reactions to this. I knew that some people didn’t like the idea and decided not to do it at their wedding, but I guess I didn’t expect to be in such a dramatic minority.

    We DID smash cake in each others faces. In fact, I’m pretty sure I got cake up my nose. We both expected it, though, and thought it was funny (I disagree that thinking it’s funny traslates to disrespect or immaturity or divorce). We both knew ahead of time that our view of it was mutual so there wasn’t any disrespect. And afterwards, we helped clean off each other’s faces (which were not completely covered in cake, by the way, just our mouths and a bit on our noses). It’s not for everyone and wasn’t the main part of our wedding, but I don’t see anything wrong with it if both the bride and groom want it.

    @Romantigua:  You’re kidding, right? You don’t see anything disrespectful about embarassing your new spouse, or them embarassing you, on the most formal day of your life in front of everyone? I mean, of course, if you both are completely OK with soiling your expensive garments, all the power to you. But if the point is to be cute and put a little icing on the nose, and the man or woman gets surprised by getting cake smashed in their face, I just think that’s disrespectful. If you don’t feel that’s way, that’s fine, but most brides want to look their best the entire day when they pay hundreds for getting their hair and makeup done or even thousands for their dress, shoes, etc.


    PS. Although I am super against cake smashing of either party in the face of the other against one of their will, doing it does not increase your risk of divorce, spousal abuse, etc. Let’s not be ridiculous now, people – seriously

    not a chance in hell.  i made it clear to Fiance that if he makes a mess with the cake on my face he will immediately receive a knee to the groin.  i’m a MUA and i take pride in my work and dont want to have to take time away from our night to go clean myself from that.  i think he understands how serious i am about it, at least he better. 😉
