      We had dinner between 6:00PM and 8:00PM. We cut the cake at 9:30PM, but only because we did fireworks with it. My WC had everyone do a countdown for the cake cutting. They said, "3-2-1" and when the fireworks went off, just as we cut the first piece of cake.

      And we played "Pour Some Sugar on Me" by Def Leppard in the background.

          A lot of couples are announced in - have their first dance - cut the cake - and then sit down to dinner. In my opinion, it really makes the night flow a lot better and seems to keep the fun going. Otherwise - the night can get broken up into chopped up segments.

            We are actually going to have cake and HD's before dinner. With the time of our reception and our dinner location, this will be the easiest thing to do.

            We are going to do group photos, etc outside so I want the guests to have something to do while all of this is going on. So, HD's and cocktails in the garden! We are doing the "semi-private" dinner because it is free. Our other option was a seated meal at $100+ per person. I figure we should make toasts and cut the cake while we are private.

            I still haven't decided if I want the guests to eat the cake there or take it back to the kitchen and have it served later.

              We ate, did toasts, then cut cake. I don't know what the "proper" order for that stuff is, I was just in a hurry to get all the formal stuff done so we could go dance

                This is exactly what I am thinking...come back from the beach photos to the end of cocktail hour and do our first dance then cut the cake so that we get it done before the photographer leaves and then sit down to dinner...that way after dinner we have salsa dancers and then just dance! :)

                  I think it definitely depends on if your photographer is staying for the whole event... if not, then most people cut the cake and do toasts before dinner. Our photographer was with us for the weekend, so we just let the night flow naturely. We ate, did toasts, and then cut the cake.

                    How awful that I can't recall! I'll have to watch the video...lol I *think* we had dinner and did some dancing before the cake cutting....but I just don't remember. There wasn't a special song just whatever was playing already. I guess that means it's not a big deal so I say do it when you want :)

                      We only had our photographer for a couple of hours so we pretty much had our champange and cut our cake righ after the ceremony so we could have pics taken of it.
