    @BoomChickaBoom: I think it’s ok not to have any other cakes. A few people who don’t like cheese cake will probaby be fine without it. It might be nice to have a few other things like cookies or candy for those people, but I don’t think it’s necessary.

    kind of depends, I would have said no worries, but on 4 weddings  show(ugh, I know) there have been a couple of folks who did cheesecake only and the girls were lactose intolerant and sad.. lol. so maybe ask around about that, and if the folks who are important to you are good to go with dairy, then I wouldnt worry about it. I do like the candy/cookie idea though…hmmmmmm 🙂   gives some choices. maybe they could put out some (or you could bring them in( inexpensively.

    With no slice of wedding cake, as a guest I’d feel disappointed. The wedding cake is one of my favorite parts of the reception. No cake + pay for my own drinks = I’m not feeling like a very well hosted guest, unfortunately.

    You can do small cake for bride + groom plus sheet cake in the same colors/flavors to save some expense.

    If you only have a small round wedding cake for cutting, I’m not sure many people would even know that it’s different from the cheesecake they will be served, so I don’t think it really matters. Besides, many people choose to forgo cake completely for other desserts like pie etc. so I don’t think serving cheesecake is any different than that. I say just go for the cheesecake that’s included in the buffet!

    I think that it’s fine to serve cheesecake to your guests and have a small cake just for the bride and groom. That said, I’d be incredibly dissapointed as a guest if my only option was cheese cake.  I like sweets but cheese cake is like my least favorite kind of food item in the world.  What about putting a plate of cookies or sweets on each table, nothing extravagent but enough for some of the guests that don’t like cheese cake.
