If your fiancé can’t come up with an idea, or doesn’t seem that interested, perhaps forego the table altogether.  Spend the extra money on something else that is meaningful to both of you!

Then why have one?   I’ve never seen one at any of the about two dozen weddings I’ve attended.  What is the meaning of it?  And doesn’t that meaning get diluted if the groom can’t even seem to give a crap to find a theme that’s important to him? Otherwise it’s pretty much “here’s a table designed by internet strangers who don’t know us and who none of you know.”  Not sure your guests will care or miss it if it isn’t there.

The whole wedding should be about both of you! There shouldn’t be a need for a groom’s table, that implies everything else is for/about the bride.

Fellow Mississippian here lol. Groom’s cakes/tables are completely normal here and practically expected. My husband does beekeeping as a hobby, so he had a bee hive center piece cake surrounded by various cheesecakes since that’s his favorite dessert. I’ve seen groomscakes with favorite sports teams, cakes shaped like a Yeti cooler, cakes with hunting themes, superhero cakes, etc. Look up groom’s cakes on Pinterest and let him have a look. I’m sure he will find something he likes.

Never ever heard of this lol, does seem mildly sexist though. We are not having a groom’s table or a bride’s table, just an entire wedding that is about both of us.

There are a lot of traditions that occur in different regions of the world. It has already been explained that this is normal in our area. There’s no need to continue to berate the OP for being sexist. Groom’s cakes are just a fun addition to the wedding because honestly who doesn’t like more dessert options. Lighten up people.

If it’s culturally related to the region, then STOP berating the OP for asking about it.
