It’s a preference.Some bride’s have the cake in the middle of the dance floor so it has to be cut before dancing.

I cut my cake after dinner and after all of the first dances.

I think it also has to do with how long it takes the caterers to cut up the cake — if you’ve got a large cake, it’ll take a long time between when you do the cut and feed and when everyone gets to eat some. So if you’re having dinner and dancing in separate rooms, it may make sense to get the cake cut early, or else everyone will go hang out in the dancing room and they’ll miss their chance to eat tasty wedding cake!

We are cutting ours before dinner because our cake will be served as dessert for our sit down dinner. Doing it before dinner will give the wait staff time to cut and plate it so it can be served right after the main course.
