    We had our cake cutting after we had coffee after the meal but before the actual reception started, and then it was cut up and served with our evening buffet, which seemed to work really well, so perhaps you could have the cake cutting ceremony before the reception but not actually serve the cake until a bit later on?

    We are cutting our cake before dinner is served that way our guests can eat the cake whenever they want. You can always have it sevred and let them leave it at their tables if they want to eat it later.

    most reception halls suggest cake cutting before dinner (assuming you are having a traditional wedding cake) …  it always the staff to cut up the cake and have it ready for serving after the dinner (or later if you like)
