I’m contemplating the same thing. It seems like it would keep things moving a bit so there isn’t lag time between cutting and serving.

I plan on cutting my cake before dinner is served. That way people can eat cake as soon as they finish eating dinner. Plus, we will have a better chance to finish eating without being pulled in different directions because everyone would be seated until they finish their meal.

Just one thing to think about:  A lot of guests like to go look at the cake and admire it, etc.  If you cut the cake right away, there isn’t much time to enjoy the beauty of a wedding cake. 

Honestly, at every wedding I’ve been to, and at my own, there wasn’t much of a time delay from when we cut the cake to when guests could eat the cake.  It also was nice that they had a little break from eating dinner and then got to snack on the cake a bit later.  I’m not sure I would want cake immediately following dinner.
