A bride, who chose to remain unidentified on Reddit, claims that her wedding was marred due to a cake-smashing episode. This revelation sparked a debate among netizens and etiquette specialists about the potential harms of such a tradition.

This 27-year-old bride took her story to the "AITAH" subreddit, a platform where users weigh in on who's at fault in personal disagreements.

She inquired if her decision to leave her wedding suddenly was justified after her spouse smeared cake on her face in full view of their attendees.

In her post, she mentioned being aware of her husband's amusement with "cake-smashing videos" and had specifically requested him to abstain from this act, as she wasn't a fan of the custom.

My husband smashed cake into my face on our wedding day and I left him.

She shared that in her family, they traditionally "do the cake smashing thing." Recalling an incident when she was 17, she said she got a cut on her forehead with "substantial bleeding" after her mom pushed her face into her birthday cake. She stated that a cake decoration was the likely culprit behind the injury.

Regarding her husband, the bride emphasized, "I told him if he ever did something like that to me I'd leave him." She mentioned that he laughed off her words, but she asserted, "He started laughing but I was being for real."

Detailing her wedding day, she said everything was going smoothly until her spouse decided to take "a huge chunk" of the wedding cake and plaster it on her face. Overwhelmed by the situation, she decided to immediately exit the venue, even as her husband and family tried to convince her to remain.

In her post, she expressed her dismay, saying, "This was supposed to be the happiest day of our lives and he embarrassed me in front of everyone for some prank that he knew I hated." She continued by outlining the damages, "Not only that, he ruined a 500 dollar cake. He ruined my makeup, my hair and the top of my dress. The cake got all over."

The bride turned to Reddit to ask if her sudden departure was too much. However, from the feedback on her post with 12,500 comments and 31,200 upvotes, many users seemed to side with her choice to leave.

"I think stunts like that are annulment-worthy, but that's just me," one Reddit user wrote.

"This isn't just a cake or a prank, this is flat-out disrespect," another user wrote.

"He had one job and it was don’t smash a cake in his fiancée’s face," another commenter added.

Though commenters with opposing views received numerous downvotes, some believed that the bride should have stayed at the wedding venue.

"If all it takes is one cake to the face I don’t want to be there when things actually get tough," one Reddit user wrote.

What do you think? Should she have let it go or was she correct in leaving her own wedding?
