Keep or Skip: Cutting of the Cake?

Will you be keeping with tradition and making time to cut the wedding cake? Skip it? Or do something different all together?

For me, since this is both our second marriage, we decided we were skipping the cake all together. We noticed in the past that not everyone ate the cake and there was so much leftover. Plus FH is not a photo kinda guy and veto'd the cake / cupcake pics anyways. We (and by "we" I mean "me") are going with a cupcake mix, simple presentation, skipping pics and easier to eat if you want to take it to the dance floor Smiley smile

    We decided to do a one tier cake for us to cut into and then for the guests there is 3 different flavors of cupcakes to choose from, and of course they can have a piece of the cake! But we are definitely doing cake cutting - the deal was since I booked us a videographer without my FH knowing at first, we have to do the cake cutting and he wants to put a smudge of cake on my face. LOL

    We’re doing a cake cutting because we removed some many other traditions. We won’t be serving the cake at the wedding though, it’ll go back in the fridge and we’ll serve the next day at the brunch. The night of we have a dessert course with dinner and then late night snacks, a candy bar and a Lithuanian tree cake people can eat

    We vetoed cake all together and went for donuts/squares/cookies - so no cutting for us. I LOVE sweets, but not necessarily cakes, so this way we got alot of variety, and if not everything gets eaten, we get to take all the extras home (oh darn hehe)

    We did cake cutting because I wanted the cute pictures that went along with it! But we just got a small grocery store cake and also had dessert bar with lots of options for everyone!

    We purposely used the wedding cake as our dessert course so we did do a cutting of the cake. We had a hero cake specifically for the moment.

    We had mini desserts after our buffet dinner as well but everyone still wanted cake 2 and a half hours later when we did cut our cake at 915pm!

    I am having a cake specially made for the two of us, top tier for the one year anniversary and the bottom for us to cut and eat and have left overs. The venue includes a cake so that will go to our guests and bridal party... And me because i'm on a strict diet until the wedding.

    Another reason we opted out of the cake, we have sweets after dinner plus a huge sweet table later on. Plus, I love cupcakes, not gonna lie Smiley smile

    We did the cutting of the cake but only our first slice and then then the winery cut the rest of the bottom layer for our guests. we have the whole top layer in our freezer to eat on our one year.
