    I plan on it. We’re a silly couple anyways and I think our friends would find it strange if we didn’t do something like that lol He’s going to get it. =p and I don’t think it shows disrespect unless you do it after they tell you absolutely not. It’s just a fun little tradition. I’m okay with a little cake in the face lol

    We didn’t smash and I told DH beforehand not to do it.  I even gave him the “I’m watching you” peace sign fingers thing right before we fed each other.  He ended up putting some icing on my nose and I was able to manage to get a little dab on his cheek but easily cleaned up and all was good.

    I threatened DH with bodily harm and no sexy time if he smashed cake in my face.

    I had said on multiple occasions that cake-smashing would absolutely ruin the wedding for me and Mr TM was on strict orders not to even consider it (and I was dead serious about everything, completely anti-smashing)…

    And then it poured all day and the power went out on our band twice and I was in my barefeet with my hair in a ponytail, drunk as a skunk at about 11 that night when we cut the cake with the handle of a tea spoon ganked from a table and…I just did it.  I don’t know what came over me but I got up there and just grabbed a huge handful and surprised the crap out of Mr TM! 

    So…just saying, don’t judge on the cake-smashing because you just might surprise yourself! 

     

     

    ps- All the judgey comments about the ‘cake-smashing’ are kind of off-putting, in my mind…Just sayin’…

    @trailmix: Even though I didn’t want him to do it to me, I’ve been to weddings before where it was done and thought it was really funny and cute!

    No, neither of us had an interest in it. BUT we did smash a piece in the faces of our best man and maid of honor (who were great sports about it).

    @trailmix: I agree. DH and I have nothing but respect for each other so all of the “disrespectful” comments don’t really make much sense to me. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion but I can tell you that neither of us felt wronged by the others desire to have a little bit of fun with the situation.

    I have seen cake smashing end horribly wrong (my aunt spent 45 minutes of her reception in the bathroom with a bloody nose after my uncle cake smashed) but it certainly doesn’t have to be that way. We really didn’t make a mess and neither of us were aggressive with it. It seriously took all of 30 seconds to clean up and we were both as good as new. Our guests also seemed to really enjoy it. It really wasn’t as big of a travesty as people make it out to be.

    @UpstateCait: WOW. I’ve never seen it get ugly like that!! I always thought it was playful when a bride and groom did the “cake smashing” thing! How awful for your aunt!

    Absolutely NOT. I had to darn-near threaten him but no, no cake smashing. Everyone was expecting it and seemed disappointned but I’m so thrilled with our decision.

    Not married yet but this is a thing that makes me CRINGE so bad. I hate it. Will not be doing it. I just don’t understand it, I guess.

    We kept getting harrassed to hurry up and cut the cake, so as we were cutting it, I whispered to him that they are expecting us to smash it in each others faces ( he doesn’t know anything about american tradition) . So I took a huge peice of chocolate cake and splat it on his face. Then he did it too me. and then did it again! Then I did it again! and then we turned to the crowd and started threatening to make it a huge food fight.

    Handsdown best part of the night.
