Typically after the grand entrance you and you husband do your first dance and then do the cake cutting then everyone sits down for dinner. The toasts are done during or directly after dinner while the cake is being served, then everyone hits the dancefloor for the parent dances and the dancing continues until the end of the reception. Hope that helps.

I have always read that the cake cutting symbolizes the end of the reception, so guests start to leave sometime there after. If thats true it leaves me to wonder why folks cut the cake before dinner? Like right after they arrive?

We cut ours before dinner so the caterers would have enough time to cut and plate it so it could be served directly after dinner.

I was just about to add that, of course, time depends on the schedule. We have our facility for 9 hours, which gives us time to space things. Some venues might only offer 4 hours beginning to end.
