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 with some cake bags on the side so people can eat it with their tea and coffee or take it home. Alternatively, it may be packaged up into bags or small boxes and handed out to your guests, usually by the venue’s staff – although this is sometimes done by your bridesmaids. Most importantly, beware of ‘cakeage’. This is a charge per guest imposed by the venue for cutting up and distributing your wedding cake. While we do not have this charge at Chateau Wyuna, some venues will add it as an extra.
Rehearsals are a great way to ensure everyone knows what to do at your ceremony. Since the bride and groom will need to be in specific places at the start of their ceremony, they will not be there to remind people where they need to be and what they need to do. So we suggest you involve your bridal party in a rehearsal (at least to the extent this is possible), as well as the person operating your music.
