    Personally, my friends/family will be picking up my cupcakes and cake and bringing it to the ceremony location.

    Where are you having the reception? There won’t be ANYONE at the reception location early that will be setting up, etc., If there is, I would have any of them sign for it and have the cake people set it up at that time.

    Ours was delivered at 3 which was for our 7:30 reception. It was delivered by the bakery and placed on the table by the bakery.

    Assuming you have a venue with waitstaff and a coordinator or set up manager, they are probably used to this. 

    Have the cake delivered no later than 3 – earlier if your florist will be decorating it.  It will be fine left out for a few hours and they will be the ones setting it up.

    If the cake stand belongs to your venue, jsut let them know what time the cake will be delivered. 

    Avoid having it stored in the cooler there if at all possible – too many people in and out and unless it’s whipped cream, just doesn’t need that much refrigeration.

    Good luck!
