Brace yourselves, romantics. For me? The cake cutting, the whole smooshy-face frosting thing? So over it. I say don't get into the public cake cutting rigmarole at all. In my opinion, it's a waste of precious dance floor time. Not only do you leave your gluten free guests high and dry, you also shame walk yourself through crushing cake into your beloved's face, and the thanks you get is buttercream in your hair. Awesome. At this point at best the tradition is played out, all that hullabaloo for one cliched album shot.

In no way am I suggesting skip dessert, in fact, sweets are pretty much essential. A great sweets solution I've seen is to offer a dessert bar of assorted treats including cake, but not strictly cake. That way guests can get their fix on their own time. Plus when you have a dessert table, there's an easy opportunity for you to offer goodies for many of the dietary restrictions so many of your guests might have!
