I personally think it would depend on if you are going to do single layer or double layer sheet cakes. When I do single layer sheet cakes I divide the cake into 36 pieces (2x3 in pieces).. they are a nice servings.. if you are going a double sheet cake than I just cut them into the "standard" wedding serving of 1x2x4 (I think I'm remembering that right)...and it would also depend on if there is going to be a "main" or typical wedding cake that is going to be cut and served. HTH.

For a wedding I would definitely make them double layer and make two 12x18's for 200 servings and one 11x15 for 75 servings.

You mean a 18x24. A 24x36 would be four 12x18's and would serve 200. I think you doubled both numbers instead of just doubling one of them. icon_redface.gif

double up those layers. that way, when served from the kitchen the people don't know they didn't get the "real" wedding cake. less work for you too.
good luck.
