    Darling Husband told me that it was his duty to smash…and I agreed it’s really the only time that throwing food in your loved ones’ face is acceptable, so we smooshed, but not in an overly aggressive way.

    I told him if he smashed cake on me, there would be a massive cake-fight and I WOULD win. No smashing for us.

    We both agreed there would be no smashing. It ended up that we had a difficult time cutting the cake to begin with and we only had a small amount. We wouldn’t have been able to smash if we wanted 🙂

    No smashing for us.  The last thing I want on my wedding day is to be cleaning smashed cake off my face and/or gown.

    @missrobots: I’m the opposite – I think that the worst time to be smushing food on my face is when a spent a ton of money on getting my makeup and hair professionally done and am wearing an awesome pretty (but again, very expensive) dress.

    Fiance and I were looking at his cousin’s wedding photos on Facebook recently and when we got to the cake pictures (they started out polite but degraded into a very calm, purposeful smash — it was hilarious) and he said, “That’s what I’m gonna do.” I told him I’d invite a divorce lawyer to our wedding so that if he did, I could divorce him right then and there haha.

    Basically I hate the feeling of having “stuff” on my skin — smashed cake included. It honestly makes me panicky/frantic a little bit until I can clean whatever it is off. Plus our cake will probably be chocolate or red velvet, and I’ll be damned if I’m going to risk getting dark cake on my dress!

    I made my husband quite aware that if he smashed the cake in my face there would be no wedding night sex for him haha. No way I was spending that much money on makeup to have it ruined! He said that he wouldn’t as long as I wouldn’t (which shows how well he knows me…I sometimes am a little bit hypocritical when it comes to things like tickling).  In the end, there was no cake smashing, and everyone was very happy.

    Maybe I’ve been watching too much of my Big Fat Gypsy Wedding, but when I think of “smashing” cake in someone’s face, I think of that show.  Besides “bumpin” and “grindin'”, it seems to be the highlight of their night.  Not for me, thanks.

    We are serving Carvel cake.  It will not be displayed or cut by us.  I never, ever pay any attention to the cake at a wedding.  It barely registers on my radar.  So we decided to be ironic about it.

    I think the smashing the cake thing is not only messy, it’s kind of cheesy. Fiance and I are not having cake anyway, we’re having maple sugar pie instead… and that would just be way too sticky! So, we will probably just feed it to each other delicately with our forks lol.

    This is the ONE thing that I am superstitious about in a sort of stupid way. I know there are tons of bees that can prove this wrong, but a wedding photographer told me ages ago that he could always tell which marriages would last depending on how the cake was done. Groom smashes it in the brides face = it’s not going to work out. I have made it clear that if my fiance does this, I will cry, not because it messed up my makeup, but because of my stupid superstition.

    So no, we’ll do something sweet.
