    I’d only care if there was no delicious dessert to replace it! Wouldn’t matter to me what that dessert was. I agree about the untouched cake at weddings–it pains me to see it!

    I wouldn’t mind at all. Especially if I’m a guest who’s aware of your allergies! It’s the bride and groom’s day afterall 🙂 How about going for something else? We’re having a cake made out of cheese!

    So long as you give them some kind of dessert I doubt anyone would mind!

    @esqbee: I *did* attend a wedding where there was no cake. There were pies instead!! And no one minded at all. They were delicious.

    No cake necessary! I actually went to a wedding recently where I’m pretty sure I was the only person who ate the slice of cake that was brought out–and that was because I felt bad that no one was eating the cake. Everyone was too busy having fun and dancing, and there were cookies out that a lot of people snacked on. I think as long as there’s something you’ll be fine.

    I don’t think people would be disappointed by not having cake.  I did like our cake cutting pictures though (but if you wanted something like that, you could consider cheesecake, pie, a cupcake, whatever).

    I’m surprised how many people commented about having tons of extra cake at the end of their wedding.  We had a 4 tier cake intended to serve 130 people, but we only ended up with 90 guests, and there was literally like 4 pieces of cake left after the reception.

    We had family members (who wanted to help and volunteered) make homemade cookies for a “cookie bar” at the wedding.  Those were definitely a big hit.

    I think having a *variety* of desserts would be awesome, and totally make up for any absence of cake! (What if someone doesn’t like cheescake? or pie? or chocolate?)

    Cake is NOT necessary @ all. If your venue has dessert then people shouldn’t even think about complaining. But then again, people will complain about anything under the sun. Better complain about having ‘no cake’ than something else…

Better complain about having ‘no cake’ than something else… The cake is not significant for you so it won’t even hurt your feelings as much if they bitch about its absence. I personally did not want cake AT ALL @ my reception, however Fiance is a cake aficionado. He wasn’t doing much legwork for the wedding, but he did take his time out to search for bakers and make appointments with them. Go figure! Undecided
