    Wait, are you serving cake before pizza? I would really rather eat the normal food before desserts, personally. This is just my opinion, but I would probably notice the awkwardness between a really lavish cake and just serving pizza. I feel like there should be another dinner option.

    Yeah, why the pizza later? I say wine cake. Sounds amazing.

    Personally, I think that it’s fine to do if you want it, but making wedding cake AND a dessert buffet a “must have” is a conspiracy of the wedding industry.

    Cake IS dessert.

    That makes a lot of sense, but to hear it in your first post, I thought that was the sit down dinner with cake then pizza and it seemed backwards to me. If the guests’ expectations are hor d’ouvres and dessert, that will work excellently and the pizza will be a nice extra.

    The wine cake sounds fantastic, but I would have a “normal” cake.  I would do this so that if people don’t like your cake, at least they have other desserts to choose from.  Even though you love the wine cake, not everyone will.  So, if they don’t like it, they will have no other options.

    I also like the idea of having pizza during dancing.  We’re going to have food out during dancing also just to make sure that hungry people will have food!

    I am not a fan of most cakes and would personally prefer to have mini-desserts to cake. But do what you’d like! I think having the mini desserts would offer no more food than cake would, so you (or your mother) shouldn’t worry about cake = hungrier guests. It’s more of a matter of if the awesome cake is worth the extra expense to you.
