I agree, it’s so much work, so why not have it displayed the whole time to show it off?  I personally attended a wedding where it was on display all night and when it came to cut the cake then everyone knew it was open to go to.  Also, all the pics I see on blogs seem to have them displayed along with decor, so I doubt someone did all of that in the middle of the reception.

Good question. I have no answer, LOL! We’re doing a dessert buffet/bar as well and I agree, I’d love to have it out and pretty all night, but I would worry about my guests pigging out on it before it was time! Our loose plan for the night is: Photos, ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, wee bit of dancing, and then at 11:00 move inside for dessert buffet and more dancing. Our dessert buffet will be in the same place where our cocktail hour is being held earlier in the day. Complicated I know. I’d love to hear other people’s thoughts on this!

We are doing a cookie table that will be out for the entire reception. We might rope it off or something to keep people from eating all the cookies before dinner though 🙂

I’ve heard of a bride using a sheer-ish cloth to cover her candy buffet, which she said worked well. 

I too would worry about the guests eating all of the sweets before dinner, but since it’s a coctail reception,  and your guests won’t be eating a big meal, I think it would be perfect to have it out the whole time! Go for it!

Maybe you could hang a curtain or something over it til it’s time to unveil it? We’re trying to figure out the logistics of this as well!
