My Darling Husband and I were both on the same page when it came to this…NO WAY.  I just don’t see why you would want to publicly humiliate/disrespect your spouse on the day you have devoted yourself to them in front of the most important people in his or her life.  That’s just a different kind of love than what we have.  My brother did it (10 years ago) but I always thought it was a real jerk move because my SIL didn’t want him to.

We talked about it and won’t be doing the cake smashing at our reception.

To me, I’ve always thought the feeding one another cake was symbolic of providing for one another now that you are husband and wife, etc.- so I see it as sort of a disrespect thing .

This is one trend/tradition that I absolutely hate and will definitely not be doing at my wedding.

I completely don’t know if this is true but someone told me that there is a statistic out there that says if the couple smashes cake in each other’s faces, there is a significantly higher likelihood of divorce.  Has anyone else ever heard this before?

 

We’re not doing cake smashing!

I definitely don’t want to have cake smashed in my face.  I’ve seen this done at weddings, and while it’s funny for the audience, I always thought “That poor girl!” The cake usually ends up in her hair, on her dress, etc.  Not something I’d be happy about, considering I hate getting messy!

We might do slight smashing, but we’re playful and it suits us.  I won’t let him completely smash my face though, just a little on the nose.

I don’t think that cake smashing correlates to divorce.  Some couples are really playful, and the cake smash is a big thing to them, it’s fun.  I totally understand that!  I guess I don’t like it when I see it done and one of the two people didn’t want it to happen.  That’s just not nice.  But if both want to have a food fight, hey it’s your party!

We’re totally doing it. We’re a very playful couple – he warned me early on that he was really looking forward to smashing cake in my face and that I just just deal with it. Smile We’ll be nice, though – nothing too ridiculous!

NO WAY!!  I told my Fiance that there is no way he will ruin my hair, make-up, and dress with cake!  It’s just not cute!

If you’re playful and you don’t mind, I say go for it! I don’t know that we’ll do it- but I’m sure we will have a miss-fire on the cakes, and it might get messy. But that’s generally because I’m a clumsy bug.

Definitely not! I would be so mad if it got on my hair/dress. Fiance is buying a new suit for the wedding as well, so I’m sure he’d be pretty upset if I got it all cakey.
