    Doing for the pictures but not with our guest. We are having our ceremony at the reception venue and will cut the cake during the transition.

    We are going to cut the cake. We did at our backyard ceremony this summer and plan to next year but i must say I have never seen a cake be cut at a wedding not sure if it's not announced or of everyone is just to busy with the celebrations

    The cake cutting isn't important to me at all, but because one of my best friends offered to make our cake we may do it just to show our appreciation. Smashing it in my face is off limits though haha

    It'll be a small cake and cupcakes but we will keep this. Earlier in the evening for anyone who isn't a night owl.

    I think we're skipping. We will have a small cake for us but the guests are getting cupcakes, so we probably won't make to much of a deal when we cut our cake.

    Skip!! We are skipping the cake altogether. Neither of us are fussy on cake, so we have decided to serve donuts. We will have dipped donuts (in our colours) on a tiered platter to resemble a cake. It will be surrounded by platters of plain and glazed donuts!

    Keep! I think it would be cool to cut our cake (s). We're not only having one cake, we're having a smorgasbord of desserts, but we'll most likely cut a small round cake. Nothing too fancy. We're having a really casual wedding!

    Keep! We鈥檙e getting cupcakes as favours, and then having a dessert table, so the wedding cake will really just be for us, but definitely keeping the cutting of it.
