I’ve never even heard of a wedding breakfast before.  Usually cake is served at the reception after the wedding.

So you’re having two receptions? What is your wedding breakfast?

Usually, cake gets served at the main reception following the ceremony. So if you do a low-key afternoon punch reception… or a formal evening sit-down dinner… there usually is cake.

There should be wedding cake for every guest present whenever you serve it.  If you only serve cake at an earlier or later reception, you only need to provide cake for those guests who are at that specific reception, and not the people at whatever other events you have.

@lavender rose:

I think its just us in UK that call it a wedding breakfast.   silly name but i know what you meant. (i am UK too) but the meaning is something to do with it being the first meal together as man and wife…..traditionally the bride and groom would not eat anything on the day of the wedding until the wedding breakfast…..therefore breaking their fast.  yadda yadda yadda…….

Anyway if the cake is big enough to go around then yeah,  lay some out for the guests later,  but if its not, then dont worry,  i would only count for the day reception guests to have cake.
