She said she kept it together during the wedding reception.
After her marriage began with a distrubing incident, a disgruntled bride turned to Reddit for help.
The woman, who goes by the username, u/Key-Hovercraft-8396, posted on subReddit community "Am I The A**hole" that she got married last week and had a condition for her husband for the wedding ceremony, per God Daily Dot. She wrote, "I had been super chill throughout the whole wedding planning, and during the actual event. Because I know sh*t happens and if anything goes wrong, or not exactly how we wanted." She added, "It's not that big of a deal and may even make the wedding more memorable for the guests."
However, she has one condition. "The one thing that I told my husband I didn't want to happen was I didn't want him smashing cake in my face. I had a suspicion that he would find it funny to do it, so during the planning, I flat out told him not to do it." She explained, "I don't think it's funny, I don't want to mess up my makeup that took hours to apply, and I don't want cake on my expensive wedding dress. I told him I would be livid if he did it. He promised that he wouldn't."
However, her husband did not respect her wishes. She wrote in her post, "Well, come the cake cutting time, what did he do? Smashed the cake in my face! It got on my dress, and messed up my makeup, just like I knew it would. I'm pretty sure his friends convinced him to do it, not that that makes it any better." She said she kept it together during the wedding and cleaned herself up for the reception.
She further explained, " But afterwards, I let loose on him. I yelled at him that this was the ONE THING I asked him not to do, and he promised that he wouldn't. He told me I was being dramatic, that it's not a big deal, and we should just be enjoying our time as newlyweds." She asked Reddit users if her reaction was dramatic and unnecessary and most of the users said she did the right thing.
A user commented, "Ah, you didn't want a trashy wedding, and you married someone who did. I hope this works out for you. I've never been to a wedding where the bridal couple smashed cake in each other's faces. Sounds dreadful." Another said, "I don't think it's the cake; I think it's the willingness to violate the other person's wishes, consent, and happiness, in front of EVERYONE they know, from day one. If someone will do that in public, as the relationship wears on, what do you think they'll do in private?"
Some users even tried to give her advice on how to handle these situations. A user commented, "Can I give you advice for the future? Don't handle this the 1950's way. If you've clearly set expectations and your husband bowls through them quite intentionally, don't swallow up your feelings and pull yourself together in private then fake a public smile."
