When did you cut you cake...

Recommended Posts

This is a good thread because I was thinking about the same thing. I am thinking though, of doing the cake cutting right after the ceremony, before we take group pictures. That way, it will be like a mini cocktail hour with cake and champagne. I'm still undecided on this though.

we did this --

 

Dinner, then during dinner speeches/toasts, dances, then cake cutting with explosions/fireworks after. Then we gave a little speech thanking everyone for coming and after the music started and the dance floor was opened up for the party.

 

Worked out very well.

We cut ours at our private reception following dinner. The reception started at 9:45 pm (was supposed to start at 9:00 pm) and we cut the cake at about 10 or 10:15 pm.

I'm hoping they will just serve the cake with our dinner. I don't care to cut it. It's a wedding tradition I've never really cared about. I never get up during a wedding to watch. Maybe because I've never liked cake. If it wasn't free with our package I wouldn't have one. There is an ice cream place at our hotel. I wouldn't mind slicing into a banana split after taking pictures on the beach. I timed our wedding so the ceremony would end when the ice cream place opened so guests can go there while they are waiting for us to finish with pictures.

 

I do not think there is an order of events. It seams to be different at each wedding I go to, but I think some time at the end of dinner makes sense. But, you could do it right after the ceremony if you think guests would want a snack.

 

I think anything goes. Just plan the timing so it doesn't interupt the flow.

I really like the idea of fireworks...was it expensive?

it was $250 for 4 explosions to go off when we cut the cake. it was a fun surprise! I didn't tell my husband so he was totally surprised, too. I think they are called "cold explosions" or something like that. Our DJ provided them for us. you can take a look at my wedding slideshow for a picture.
