Quick Tip # 3
Cutting The Cake - Since you'll be the first to be served dinner, you'll be the first to finish. This would be a great time to cut the cake. Yes, many of your guests may not be done eating. But by cutting the cake now, this allows the staff to slice and dice the cake and, if all goes well, serve it to your guests just as they are finishing their meal. Anyone wishing to take pictures will not have a problem putting their fork down for a few minutes so they can capture the moment on film.
The problem with waiting until after everyone is done eating dinner is that by then, many people have gotten up to begin socializing, moving to the bar, or (perish the thought) just plain leaving. It's a shame to look out over the room and see people dancing and socializing, while the staff places slices of (very) expensive cake in front of empty chairs at abandoned tables.
A cake is a terrible thing to waste!
