I think it sounds like a good idea, but have you checked into the cost of that? Could add up quickly!

Have you considered having a “dummy” cake with one real layer to cut and then a sheet cake in the back to cut up and serve?

That certainly sounds like enough cake. You might actually end up with left over cake if you get mini-cupcakes for everybody. Remember that not everybody at a wedding will eat the cake. If you want to cut costs you could get a small layer cake for cutting and then display the cupcakes in a nice decorative way.

If you can get the 5 cakes and the mini cakes cheaper than a traditional cake then go for it. I would call some bakeries and see if that would change the price. You still might find it cheaper to go with what a PP said about getting a sheet cake. 

If you like to bake you could always make the cupcakes yourelf to save some money. My Fiance and I are getting one small cake for us to cut and then I’m going to make cupcakes in a jar.

I don’t know if that’s something you would be interested in doing, but I found the idea here:

I would just do the assorted round cakes without the cupcakes. It seems like overkill.
