I think that is a good idea.  That way the people from your church who aren’t invited to the regular reception can have a little snack with you after the ceremony!

I think you should do the sweets/cookie table with coffee hour. I don’t know about everyone else, but I like dunking cookies or some biscotti into my tea or coffee. Then have the cake at the reception.

Though if you want a specific cake thats better served indoors, then just have cake at the ceremony – or you could have a cupcake wedding cake, that seems fitting for a coffee hour.

Id do the cake at the reception, but here is an idea – Cut the cake immediately when you get there.  Thats what we did.  After the cockatail hour, we went upstairs to come back down and be introduced.  We were introduced, did our first dance, then cut the cake.  That way, you get the cake cutting, but they can immediately take it in back for refrigeration (if thats an option) and you can still have your custards, etc.  Have cookies and biscotti at the coffee hour, but you could always do a small cake there…like a sheet cake from a grocery store or something

I think both of these options work well – neither is going to make or break the guests’ experience. I personally would serve the cake at the coffee hour so you can include everyone, but I don’t think it makes a huge difference.
