I dont understand the whole “grooms cake thing”  I thought the wedding cake was “the cake” why does a groom need a special cake? Can someone enlighten me on this subject.

No, we didn’t. I think they are kind of pointless and not worth the extra money’s worth. Why not just enjoy the wedding cake together? It’s *both* your guys’ cake.

I also don’t understand the whole “grooms cake” thing.  I mean is it because it is typically thought (wrongly, of course) that the wedding is all about the bride and this is a way to allow the groom something special?

I mean, I love cake so I wouldn’t be all “eww a grooms cake!”, I just don’t understand the point.

I’m intruiged… what’s this “groom’s cake” tradition we speak of? I haven’t attended too many weddings in my adult years and have never been to one with a “groom’s cake”. Does he pick this himself? Or is it always a surprise?

We didn’t do one.  I already spent $1500 on a cake for my guests, I didn’t need one of a football or some other unique thing for Darling Husband to have a cake of his own.  Personally, I think they’re just another wedding gimmick brides get conned into paying for.

I had one made and my Darling Husband LOVED it. It was a complete surprise. This cost me $120 and fed 15-20 people.

JiminyCricket:  I agree, I think a lot of wedding things are gimmicky nowadays. It’s all about the “show” of it all anymore.

We had one at our rehearsal dinner – it was decorated like a pool table, since Darling Husband is really into billiards. I have no idea what it cost, since it was handled by DH’s parents. I’ve ssen some really cool ones, but they’ve always been at rehearsal dinners in my circle.
