I would think “THIS IS AWESOME”


I think you bring up logical points that you’d like to use the quartet, there’s a gap that would be made nicer with nibbles, and the reception venue not having a good cake table

Everything about wedding timelines is so flexible anyway that you can literally do what you want, when you want- I think having cake sooner is a great idea.

You know I’ve always wondered about doing this myself. Not necessarily right after the ceremony but defintely not at the end of the freaking night. I say go for it.

Hi I just posted about having this same idea – but also doing the toasts during this time. Just wondering if you did this and how it worked out?

My brother did this at his wedding last July. It turned out great.

My Dirty Delete did this too!  Our theory was to have them cut the cake during the cocktail hour (they did their photos before the ceremony) so it could be plated for dessert for the guests.  I have never understood cutting the cake towards the end of the ceremony, but I know it is tradition.  Gee – let a bunch of people drink all night long and then wonder why you have so much cake left over!

She and her now Darling Husband cut the cake and the fathers each did a toast during the cocktail hour.  It went swimmingly!
