Grooms cake?

I found out that you are supposed to divide the number of servings between the wedding cake and groom cake....I read somewhere it is supposed to be 2/3 of guest get wedding cake and 1/3 get grooms cake...one is chocolate and one is vanilla( Wedding cake)...What do you girls think?

    I know our actual cake could feed 1pp.  Our grooms cake could've probably fed everyone too.  It ended up being huge.  (It was the Miami Hurricane "U")

    Our wedding cake was all yellow cake with different fillings in each tier.  Grooms cake was one side of the U was red velvet and the other was chocolate.

    I think you should make the cake whatever fillings/flavors you want it.  Just make sure between the two there is enough for at least 1pp.

    It seems like a common thing to make the groom's cake chocolatebut really I think it should be whatever the groom likes! Plus if you have a variety of flavors, some people might have more than one piece, so make sure to account for that!

    I am doing both. Our wedding cake serves 80 and the groom's cake serves 40ppl. We only have 80 invited. I figured we would send people home with whatever left overs there are. I also did it that way so every guests can try the 3 different flavors.

    Our grooms cake was actually big enough to feed almost everyone. I didn't know how to big to make it.

    Grooms cakes are not a tradition in my culture, so I've never been to a wedding with a groom's cake, BUT I've been to plenty of weddings where the cake tiers of different sizes were different flavors. In my experience you can have whatever size/number that you want of the various cake flavors, and the caterers just get to pass them out as they please...If someone wants a particular flavor, they can either ask the caterers, or they can trade with others at their table. I really think that you can do whatever works best for you.
