Video Shows Groom Smashing Wedding Cake in Face of New Wife as "Joke," Drawing Ire Online

“I would have cried.”

The bride and groom's playful cake smash is a key part of any wedding—assuming, of course, it doesn't go too far. The idea is to show gentility and a bit of humor—after all, cakes can be incredibly messy! Restraint is required. One groom from the UK clearly didn't get the memo, and is facing online ire after smashing a giant piece of cake into his bride's face, ruining her hair, makeup, and wedding dress in the process. "I am absolutely shocked at this," one online commenter said. Here's what the viral video shows.

The groom managed to corner the bride (quite literally) and then came the controversial cake smash. Instead of gently giving her the cake, he shoved it onto her face, and ended up getting cake all over her face, hair, and wedding dress. He then walks off and leaves her standing there reeling.

The bride posted video of the incident on TikTok (although she turned the comments off). "It's official we're mr and mrs price❤️🥰 he got me back for doing it to him good and propa🙈🤣 love my… husband all the world🤣🥰❤️," she captioned the video. We can assume she turned the comments off because not everyone found the video funny.

"She's trying to laugh off the embarrassment – she will be doing that for a while," a third said. "Yikes. The fact he walked away after and didn't help her clean her dress," another said.
