I want multiple tiers on my wedding cake, and all different flavors, some will have alcohol and some may have ingredients people could be allergic to.
What is the best way to avoid chaos, such as people wanting other flavors, switching with someone else, allergies, etc.
Should I just have a buffet set up and everyone can collect their own cake? I guess that would be cool since I dream of having a dessert/sweet table set up with lots of different options.
I could just have a staff show a menu and ask which flavor they’d like to have …
What do you think?

Most places serve the cake to the table with no explanation. I’ve been to a wedding that was kind of a buffet. The servers stood with the cake and asked what flavor you wanted.

We’re going to have our cake — three different flavors — cut and served "cocktail hour style," with waiters carrying trays of each option through the reception space.

Is the dinner service buffet or plated? If the latter, then what I’ve seen is the wait staff comes around with several flavors on a tray (as bruschetta said) and just aks which you prefer. Otherwise I’d say set up a table and put signs. Keep in mind that a sliced cake is a lot of pieces, so it will probably need it’s own table (can’t just stick them onto the sweet table). Or someone manning a station. But they tell me that the cake gets completely dismantled while slicing, so even though the pieces look fine the cake looks like amess. You may not want that sitting out.
