sheeply: Personally, I would love that! However, I think tiramisu is a love it or hate it dessert so you may need to make sure most people like it! With 30 people that should be doable. 🙂

Agree that it sounds fine!  I am biased since we didn’t do a traditional cake either – we had individual ‘cake cups’ in 6 different flavors.  Most of the tables mixed and matched so everyone got to try some.

I’d enjoy that so much as a guest! Hmmm now I want tiramisu…

Informal –  tiramisu is a great option. We’re having 45 guests and our reception at an upscale restaurant so more traidtional and formal so we’re having cake. In your case it sounds fine.

LOVE tiramisu. Wedding cake is typically pretty ‘blah’, so I think no one will really miss it. My husband is the only person I know who dislikes tiramisu (he doesn’t like the taste of coffee — weirdo, I know 😛 ), so he might pass on it.

sheeply:  Is cutting a cake really that important to you?  (We didn’t have a cake or do a cake cutting because we really didn’t care for the tradition, and we served cake pops at our wedding)–  if you, as the bride and groom don’t even care about cutting the cake– just skip it!!  Serve what you like!

I think it sounds great (and delicious!)! However I’m not too sure about it as a centrepiece for your table because of how long it’ll be out of a fridge in terms of presentation as it’s so soft and creamy. Also you’ll want to make sure no one is lactose intolerant in case you need an alternative for a couple of people.

sheeply:  Honestly– I think if you’re going the cake route mainly for MIL, I would just go with your photographer to a private area to do the whole cutting the cake thing.  You and your hubby can slip away for a few minutes– or when desert is being served, you guys can cut the cake and grab pics with the photog, but just not make a huge production out of it.

I think it’s kind of odd cutting from your cake for you two but not serving from that cake. If you are having others served the menu tiramisu, why not let them have a choice of dessert then? I personally can not stand tiramisu and would rather pass or have a choice if at a restaurant.

I think it’s totally fine. At my cousin’a wedding they had a cheesecake on their sweetheart table that they cut. The rest of the guest were served plates if mini deserts. I actually liked the novelty of a few mini deserts rather than a slice of wedding cake.
