    Well I don’t know the ‘should’ of this.  But for me personally, my venue is allowing delivery the evening before, and they are then going to handle the actual setup and cutting.  I opted to do this so that it was one less thing to organize on the day of.

    My venue was open from 6am that morning and the cake was delivered by 9am even though the reception didnt start til around 6pm. they have a big kitchen and huge fridge so the cake was fine in the fridge.

    Trust the bakery since they do this all the time and know when the appropriate setup time is.

    I would trust them. Our ceremony was at 5:30 and the cake was suppose to be there by 5. But for some reason she was just leaving the venue at 6pm when all the guests arrived for cocktail hour…so a little early is better IMO
