Yes provide cake, even if it is a sheet cake from Costco. I’d be really confused if I saw a cake and saw the bride and groom eating cake and then did not get cake. I am not saying cake is required — lots of cool pie/ice cream/smores/dessert alternatives happening at weddings, but I think it’s weird if YOU TWO eat cake while no one else does. Are your pictures more important than treating your guests well?

wonderlily:  +1 exactly. You don’t have to do cake, but I just can’t picture you and your groom having a cute little cake for yourselves and none for your guests.

Costco or other grocery chains have reasonable sheet cakes- and they’ll write what you want on it at no extra charge. You can even get a fairly inexpensive cake topper if you want (I bought mine @ Bulk Barn for $20)

Sheet cake is a fine solution.

You definitely need something. Sheet cake is fine! We are doing a small cake to cut and providing cupcakes to guests

afgirl1111:  Hey!  We are doing the same thing – just a small cake for cutting purposes.  We are having a dessert table will all sorts of goodies.  Most likely we will cut the cake, and then just put out the remaining slices for the guests as part of the dessert table.  The dessert table will have cookies, brownies, cake pops, mousse, fruit squares and cheese.  We are not having an additional sheet cake because we have having such a variety of other desserts.  

Our set up is a little different to the traditional “table surrounding dance floor”, so we are cutting the cake immediately after the first dances. I know it’s not typical, but with our layout it makes the most sense!
