With 10 days left I think you should not worry about accommodating 3 gluten free guests.  THey won’t die if they don’t get to eat a piece of cake. I’ve actually never eaten a piece of cake at a wedding including my own (and i LOVE cake!)

You are overthinking. Your gluten-free friends will be fine without cake, but if you want to give them cupcakes, that is absolutely lovely and no one will pick a fight about it.

It’ll be fine. Don’t stress. Nobody would seriously be offended  they had to eat cake instead  of cupcake.

I actually just attended a wedding where the bride did exactly this (her sister in law, niece, and nephew have Celac disease).  I’ll admit I’m a cupcake fiend, so when I saw them on the table with the cake I was all, “ooooh…!” but once I picked up on the gluten-free part I thought it was a lovely and thoughtful gesture.  And I enjoyed my slice of regular cake 🙂

@ELM12345:  Now, I do agree with the other posters, the gluten free people probably already expect to forgo cake. However, if you want to order a small half dozen of cupcakes and keep them in your venue’s kitchen, and then put them on plates and personally bring them to your people during the reception, that would be a super, super nice touch, plus it might give you a minute or two to chat with each of those guests. However, I’m not married and I know that time can get away from you at receptions, so I’m not sure how realistic it is.

I would just not put the cupcakes out on display, because they would probably get snatched up. If anyone asks, just tell them why you’re doing it… then they’ll probably feel a bit selfish getting worked up over not having a cupcake.
