    we are cutting ours as soon as we enter the reception.  Then the cake will be taken into the kitchen and cut up just before it’s served (after dinner).

    We are aiming to have all the “official” stuff done before dinner, including our first dance.

    Cake is the dessert for us.  I’ll think we will do it right after dinner though since reception is outside.

    At my first wedding, our dinner included dessert. We served tartufo, sort of like a giant bon bon. We had dessert served right after dinner and then two hours later after a lot of dancing, we cut the cake and the kitchen staff served it while we did the garter and bouquet stuff. There was maybe another 45 min or an hour left in our reception. All our guests were still there. It worked well for us.

    This time around, we did not have dessert and we cut and served the cake 1 hour before the end of the reception. Again, it worked well for us. People ate it since they had time to get hungry again.
