I told Fiance that if he does this, we will be heading to divorce court right after the reception LOL!

No way! I think if a couple talks about it and decides to do it then that’s fine. I personally feel that it is disrespectful and we definately will not be doing it at our wedding.

Ugh I’m sorry I hate when people do that!!! If I spend all day getting hair and make-up done I don’t want cake on me! hah It’s to be eaten not thrown especially when you probably paid so much for it. It isn’t classy sorry if you do then cool, but let that be for the after party not the reception with everyone watching. that’s just my opinion.

Such a funny thread!  I’m turned off by almost ALL reception traditions, including father-daughter/mother-son dances, couple’s first dance, garter wearing & tossing, bouquet tossing.  I know people love a lot (or all) of that stuff.  For some crazy reason the cake smashing thing just cracks me up!  I’m open to doing either way, I’ll let Fiance decide.  I guess because it’s such a SERIOUS day, the idea of being goofy and not taking something so seriously is a little fun to me.  Love to hear people hate on it though!!!  🙂  hahhah reminds me of myself with other stuff

We definitely did not!!  I am stronger than I look and probably would have hurt him…haha.  But seriously, why ruin my hair/makeup/dress and start a marriage off with a violent act?  We just did the cute ‘feeding each other” with a fork =)

If you’re a playful couple, I don’t see this is at all a bad thing.  But we will not be doing  it.  The last thing I want after spending so much time and money on my attire and beauty stuff for the day is for it to be ruined by cake, and to have to spend ten minutes in the bathroom trying to scrub it off.

Absolutely not! We are doing the cake cutting first thing once we get to the reception, and I don’t want to mess up my hair/makeup/dress (that I spent a lot of money on) before the festivities even begin. Besides that I see it as a respect thing, and wouldn’t do it regardless.

NO WAY, I’m paying a small fortune on hair, makeup, clothing etc. for someone to smash cake in my face, i could see my self being a widow an hour in if he did that to me. lol

Not full on cake smashing, that’s mean and wasteful!  

But knowing Boyfriend or Best Friend and I, there will be some “accidental” contact of cake with face.

No way.  I think it’s disrespectful and rude.

We did it. Well, I did it. I don’t see it as disrespectful and we’re just the goofy play around type. I told my husband he was more than welcome to cake smash me, but once the moment happened, he didnt want to (he later told me he was afraid of getting cake on my birdcage veil, but I really, really didn’t care either way). I did get him though, and he was a good sport (we talked ahead of time that it would be ok though)

I don’t want to do it…but at most weddings I’ve been to, there was this distinct feeling that it was expected by the couple’s audience, and if they didn’t do it, the bride was made to look stuffy…(people cheering them on, then making disappointed “aw!” sounds/comments, etc.) I am all for the standard traditions, but I don’t like this one, and I don’t think I should be made to look snobbish or controlling by asking my husband not to do it. Ugh. Anyone else feel this way?

sorry i already told FH that we will be getting an annullment if he does this to me. its disrespectful and so NOT funny.

i guess its one thing if both of you wanna do it and think its cute, but when i spend that much time and $$ trying to look perfect for our special day i will be DAMMED if i will let him smash a REALLY expensive cake in my face.

seriously i would swiftly kick him in the nads….
