    I wouldn’t say it is tacky, but… I wouldn’t want to bring a cake or pie to a wedding. I mean, I’m one of those people that go all out, like You need to put the icing on an hour before people…. and then there would be cake on my dress and i would be sad… plus… if they are bringing a pie.. mabey no present!?

    Yup. Run on sentence. sorry.

    I do like it!! And if your family is the fun, quirky type I think it would be great!! There might be a little more planninginvolved, but overall, i think it could be really cute!!

    I almost wish I could steal the idea, but im not sure it would go with the “afternoon tea, garden party theme”

    I like the idea…but maybe not at a wedding receptions.  Seems like something more appropriate for a shower…

    I like the idea and I think it would be fun, I just wonder if it will take aways from the wedding at all… Sorry not a big help I just feel like there is so much going on at a wedding and getting ready for a wedding im not sure I would want the extra responsibility. Unless someone else is incharge of it all together. Lol see I think I would think about it too much! dont stress yourself out more than you need too but then again its your wedding!

    Are you having a strict timeline for the reception?? Or just kinda a go with the flow type one??? I would say if its go with the flow, then it would be amazing, However, if your stuck to a strict schedule, it would maybe be too difficult.

    I think it seems really informal and like it would be a lot of trouble to coordinate. Cute idea, but I agree it might be better for a shower or engagement party.

    @knvprincess143 Then i deff think your family would appreciate it!!! If you have time, and it wont stress you too much — id go for it!!!

    Plus, i mean, how much stress could it really add?? You just include it in your invites, and boom….. eat some desserts come day of! 🙂

    I’ve never heard of anything like that before and I LOVE it. I’d say to ask one of your friends or cousins to be in charge of the bake off on your wedding day so you don’t have to worry about it. I think it’s a very cute and creative idea!

    I agree that it seems more appropriate for a shower.  I LOVE to bake, but I don’t think I would want to be responsible for transporting a pie to a wedding, in addition to getting ready, grabbing the gift, etc.

    I don’t think it’s tacky, though, so if you are really excited about the idea and don’t think it would be a pain/stressful to coordinate, I say go for it!

    I absolutely would not do it.  Since the purpose is NOT to ask guests to provide free dessert for your other guests (since you already plan to provide cupcakes ), I’m sure you do not want any of your guests to THINK this is the purpose of the activity. Whether or not they chose to contribute a baked item, some guests likely would make the assumption that this IS the purpose of your asking them to bring something, so I would not do it.

    Beyond the potential etiquette issues noted above, there is the practicality of having to not only make the items, but also to have to transport them undisturbed and then properly store them during the cermony, in what could be very high temps.  I don’t know in what region of the country you live, but, at my wedding (which was not in an area known for super high temperatures in May), it was 96 degrees, and I was married only three days after your wedding date of May 19.  Just some things to consider.

    The idea doesn’t scream “wedding reception” to me. More “county fair” tbh.
