I have always wanted a chocolate wedding cake with buttercream icing because that is my favorite. When I got engaged I mentioned the to my FI and he said no right away. He says that is it not "socially acceptable" to have a chocolate wedding cake. I have tried to tell him that the wedding is about us and what we like, not what everyone else thinks about it, but he won't budge. My mom is upset that I won't have my chocolate cake and she says that since she's paying for it, she will order the chocolate cake.
I don't want this to be an issue that causes a rift between my FI and my mom. Do you ladies have any ideas for compromise?
