New York, September 21: A viral TikTok video depicting a groom forcefully smashing a wedding cake into his bride's face has sparked a debate about the controversial tradition. In the clip, the groom's aggressive cake smash causes the bride to lose her balance, leading to widespread criticism. The anonymous bride later took to Reddit to reveal that the cake-smashing incident had a deeply negative impact on her wedding day, to the extent that she decided to end her marriage.
According to multiple reports, the bride shared on Reddit that she had a history of trauma related to cake smashing, dating back to when she was 17, when her mother pushed her face into a birthday cake, resulting in a cut on her forehead. She had explicitly warned her husband-to-be not to engage in this tradition, but he dismissed her concerns. During their wedding, despite her previous warnings, the groom scooped up a substantial portion of the wedding cake and forcefully smashed it onto her face, ruining her makeup, hair, and dress.

She explained on Reddit that her family and her husband's family criticised her for her reaction, but many Reddit users supported her decision to leave. Etiquette experts have weighed in on the matter, emphasising the importance of discussing preferences and boundaries with a partner before the wedding.
