@Bella Luna Same boat as you. I know that sex isn’t supposed to be used as a weapon, but it’s very tempting here.

I would have been livid. I probably would’ve burst into tears. It’s not disrespectful if you both are okay with it, but I am not a silly or goofy person, and I don’t like people laughing at me. My wedding especially would not have been the place. I don’t even like face-painting. My guests probably would have been very uncomfortable, because they know me well enough to know I wouldn’t find it funny.

Fortunately, DH is low-key like I am, so it was never an option. My BFF’s Fiance will do it to her at their wedding, and she’ll be mortified (she thinks he won’t), but in a “smash it back in revenge” kinda way, so it’ll be cute. Then he won’t get laid that night. 🙂

Hell.No will I be doing a cake smashing.

I told my Fiance we will be divorced before the end of the night if he does it – instant bad mood! Why would I want to ruin my hair, makeup, dress for a stupid moment?! I also wear contact lenses and I’d be afraid of losing one! It just seems like all kinds of a bad idea.

I can have fun and cut loose other ways!

Thank god my Fiance says no problem and my Father-In-Law also commented that he hates when people do that.

We will not be doing a cake smashing.  That being said, the only way I think it’s “disrespectful” is if the person doing the smashing knows that the other person doesn’t want them to, and does it anyway.

I just remember growing up that when couples didn’t smash the audience said ‘awwwww’ as if they were super happy of the couple’s choice.  I am not sure it’s tacky to smash, I just think it’s not as classy.

Heck no.

1. I actually want to taste that damn cake!

2. I won’t be paying all that money for the makeup artist just so someone can smash cake all over it.

3. I don’t understand how this “tradition” even started or what the point is??? WHY???

4. I’m not interested in having a messy, sticky face at the wedding.

5. It has just always struck me as a really weird, unnecessary, unromantic thing to do

Hubby and I did not plan on this. We had actually discussed it and said we were not going to do it. We had 140 cupcakes and a 5 in cake that was ours to cut. Well after me cutting it, him cutting it, me feeding him a small piece with a fork, his dad said he didn’t have the balls to smash it. Well, he did, and so did I. I had it on the right side of my face, and a bit on my glasses. I got him full on including on his shirt. NOTHING was on my dress or in my hair. He completely didn’t expect me to retaliate. However it was fun I must admit.
