Is it necessary to order the cake to serve all the guests? For example if we have 200 guests can we get a cake to feed 150 guests?? Is that a risk? Our family is not big on cake dont think everyone will be eating some…just wondering!

Yup! For my wedding, I had 130 people RSVP yes. I bought a cake that served 95. We still had a lot left over. Some people just don’t eat cake.
Also, usually bakeries don’t include to top tier in their count. So you if you don’t want to save your top tier like I did, you can reduce the number even more.
Hope that helps.

Some people say it’s a no-no to order fewer servings of cake than the number of people attending. However, a lot of people do it to save money. And often, not everyone takes a piece of cake. I have been at a wedding where they ran out of cake and a couple of people were disappointed, but it really wasn’t a big deal.
Also, you can ask your venue to cut half-servings to get more slices out of a smaller cake.

I’m planning to order a cake that is big enough to serve everyone and then some. Would rather have too much than not enough!

I think you will be fine with getting a little less cake than there will be people. Not everyone eats cake, people may have already left by that time and you will most likely have leftovers!
