Usually after formally cutting your wedding cake the venue will distribute it to your guests.

You may ask them to provide it on a platter for each table so people can eat it with their tea and coffee.  This is particularly sensible if the cake is a type that may not keep well or will look very messy when bagged.

Most importantly though, beware of ‘cakeage’.

This is a charge per guest imposed by some venues for cutting up and distributing your wedding cake.  It is certainly a difficult charge to justify!
