If it helps most wedding's I've been to have not had grooms cakes.  That said they have all been Canadian weddings and I believe the grooms cake is an American one, so I'm not sure if this helps, but I say if you don't want one you probably don't have to have one.

I've been to 4  weddings where there's been a grooms cake, generally this cake is more fun than the traditional white tiered cake. The one's I've been to have all been origional, and something that the groom liked, like a giant fish, a big piece of French toast, and American Flag (he was in the Marines) or a tractor. If you're having a more formal event, IMHO, I would skip it.

I think groom's cakes are a southern thing.  Up in Minnesota, no one has them!  (But we Minnesotans are practically Canadian anyway...  Tongue

I went to a Renaissance themed wedding, and the groom's cake was "the sword in the stone".  The groom frequently visits Renaissance Fairs, so his cake was appropriate.  They also got married in a castleSmiley

I'm a Chicagoland wedding photographer and I have yet to see a groom's cake.
My fiance and I are not planning on having one at our wedding just because there is only so much we can afford, but I think it can be a nice personal touch for the groom.

That castle is BEAUTIFUL!!! Thanks for the link to the site too.

Thanks for all the advice...I think we will be skipping the grooms cake, but just because he dont want one! LOL  We decided to go with a tier of cupcakes with a small cake at the top for us to save for the following year & a small cake for us to cut & feed to each other during the festivities.

Thanks again all...guess the best answer is from the groom himself! ROFL

We're not having one either - but we are having cake balls!  They're these little 2" pieces of cake that are frosted and stackable. 

I think it's all a matter of preference...
