    It depends on if you’re offering dinner at the reception. If you’re offering dinner, usually, shortly after dinner, you cut your cake so that your guests can enjoy it for dessert, then you do the bouquet toss

    I say after. Usually the cake cutting and serving is done after any part of the food service. The bouquet toss is done when the party has started.

    Before. The cake cutting is done closer to the end of the reception,and the other ‘stuff’ is done beforehand.

    Doesn’t matter what you’re serving (plated,buffet).most vendors will tell you they never cut the cake right away. There’s usually a time gap since most people aren’t ready for dessert immediately after eating dinner.

    I think after…but really any way is acceptable and everyone does it differently!
