I’d say go for it after the toast or partway through dancing. After the toast you still have everyone’s attention but I personally think it’s nice to do something wedding related partway through dancing. Maybe the cake cutting after the toast and garter/bouquet partway through dancing? That’s how I’ve traditionally seen it.

@jackie_t4701: the weddings I have been to mostly have the cake as dessert. Its cut about an hour after dinner and then served OR its cut right after dinner and served right away. Your choice

What we are doing is making it after dinner. Our first dance will be right after we enter the reception, followed by dinner. As dinner is wrapping up there will be our toasts and our cake cutting directly following.

We are doing the bouquet toss right before we leave the reception
