to me a tiered cake is too symbolic of a wedding to skip. maybe I would have side desserts, but I would never skip a cake.

I help out at a lot of weddings as a wedding planner or coordinator, helper whatever.  I find there may be something cut into for the wedding cake ceremony that a good 50 percent do not have a “normal” tiered wedding cake.  I have seen small cakes, cheese, piecs, small cake and then served cupcakes been used.  Also, the current trend to “natural or naked” cakes fondant is no longer the de rigeur as a must  Still the most beautiful or used to intricate cakes; most people do not like the taste of fondant and it is very expensive because of the workmanship.  So the majority still do some kind cake cutting ceremony just no longer the big wedding cake so often.  for some weddings to keep the price down besides using cupcakes if the b and g insist on a “traditional” tiered cake – I will order three cakes from the same bakery and stack them ourselves..

We’re going to have a dessert bar and chocolate and vanilla cupcakes from our favourite place. Wedding cakes are expensive and in my expereince not everyone eats it.
