I just read about this on another thread – hadn’t even thought about it.
I’ve read lots of people have extra cake left over. Since we are doing buffet style and I’ll order more servings than we need (because I am neurotic about having enough), I would guess that we very well may have quite a bit leftover too.
After cake has been out for awhile (an hour or so), what about putting out clamshell boxes, plastic forks, and a cute note that says they are welcome to take a slice or two home? The plastic forks are since everyone is staying in hotels… I wonder if I could come up with a way to nicely package them.
We’re having our wedding out of town (from everyone) and then going straight on our honeymoon, so I don’t really want a bunch of leftovers. I have a DOC who could handle this duty.

That’s a great idea! If I were your guest, I’d take a piece!

I would grab cake! Our guests have a ferry journey home so that would be a good idea for them to take some for the 30 minute boat ride…Thanks hun x lol

We’re doing cupcakes and will have cupcake boxes for takings home. We also got a few larger boxes to pile em in for families with kids. We def don’t want extras either.

I have actually only ever been to one wedding where we ate the cake at the wedding. Every other wedding we have been given dessert and cake to take home in a cake box. Same thing at my wedding- guests took the cake home.
Something like this

I think ordering that much extra cake would be overkill. My cousin just set out the few extra pieces. They were eaten. Of you didn’t have enough for everyone to take a piece home, then you are right back where you started. The extra cake will come with us to eat it the next few days or with Future Brother-In-Law, who lives with us, or some other bridal party member to eat. Probably him as he is the only one with a good metabolism! Unless you are ordering nearly 2x the pieces of cake, I would skip it (1.5x minimum)
