So, I’ve decided that I really care about eating cake on my wedding. But I’m not so sure I care about publicly cutting one with my fiance, or having one on display.
Did anyone do sheet cakes that were held/cut in the kitchen, or some form of that? Will my guests think we’re major odd ducks for not doing the traditional cake cutting?

I was at a wedding where they did that!
I didn’t even notice until Darling Husband was like “Where were they hiding the cake for 250 people? I only saw the one they cut…”
And cake service was WAY faster… Which I appreciated!

We are just cutting in a 6 inch cake. They are usually under 50 bucks decorated anyway you want. I wasn’t going to do a cake cutting but went this way after my fiancés grandma offered us the beautiful wedding knife she used to cut her wedding cake.

If you don’t care about having a the traditional, super decorated, tiered cake…I think it’s a great option. It’s also a lot cheaper.
I did want the big traditional cake and did have it on display. Either way is totally fine.

We are just cutting a 6″ cake on top of our cupcake stand. So no cake plating is even required, people can just come up and grab them!

@MoonlitMagnolia: We had a displayed cake, but we only had 50 guests and our cake was part of our catering package.

We are not cutting a cake or having one on display, it’s something that wasn’t important to us. Funny thing is, our cake that comes with our package is from the Cake Boss. We are steering away form a lot of traditions though (no bouquet or garter toss).

I had a friend who had a cake displayed, but didn’t do the whole public cake cutting, just had the caterers bring out pieces later in the evening. No one seemed to notice that they didn’t do the whole cake cutting thing. I say do what you want, it’s your wedding! I like the idea of displaying a cake myself. Mine came with the venue package.
