However, tradition isn't for everyone, and wedding clichés might not be your style. Many couples often want their guests to remember the special day as a day that won't be forgotten. 

With this in mind, the team at Lake District Country Hotels have explored the trend of wedding cake smashes and said: 

“The cake smash is the perfect, fun moment to incorporate into your special day, and it is sure to leave your guests with happy memories forever. However, we strongly advise couples to certainly have their cake smash planned beforehand. Smothering the love of your life’s face in delicious vanilla icing might seem funny, but we’re sure that no newlywed will want to be caught out. No one wants to have their costly hair, makeup, dress, or suit, ruined unexpectedly, let alone their costly cake! So it’s best to have a talk beforehand on the topic; no one wants to see the romance ruined on their special day.

“If you are going to go ahead with the idea, get it on camera! Make the special moment last forever. prewarn your photographer and laugh about it for many years later. Your photographer will also be appreciative of the warning so they can protect their expensive equipment… who knows where cake will end up!

“Whilst you want to enjoy your day, ensuring your guests enjoy your day is at the top of the list for many couples. And the best way to do this is with some memorable activities. Incorporating a cake smash is guaranteed to surprise your guests, bringing smiles and laughter that will last for years to any reception!

“On the other hand, if a cake smash isn’t your idea of fun, you can still bring entertaining elements that will release your inner child to your special day. Many couples love having photo booths, magicians, live music, or outdoor games to impress their guests and make their wedding an unforgettable day. As we wave goodbye to many typical wedding traditions, new ones are welcomed. Whether that be replacing confetti with sparklers or bubbles to reduce mess or swapping a groom’s speech for a bride’s speech, it’s important to remember what your special day is about."
