As weddings and receptions become more unique, many couples are straying from “traditional” aspects when planning their day. For those of you who are looking for the nontraditional addition to your reception, we have some fun alternatives to the classic wedding cake we think you’ll love.
Cupcakes have become very popular for wedding receptions lately! Order a variety of flavors to appease everyone at your reception, or get your favorites and set them up on a tiered dessert tower as you would a wedding cake. Another option is to set up trays as table centerpieces so guests can have easy access come dessert time!
You’ve probably seen the “donut wall” that has received a lot of attention lately. Whether you do a wall, or set out trays or stacks of donuts, this is another great option to add some variety so guests are sure to find a flavor they love!
If ice cream is your go-to dessert (and everyone knows it) incorporating it into your reception can be a fun way to personalize your day! Have a few different flavors to choose from and let guests add their own toppings, like brownie or cookie pieces, candy, sprinkles, and any other sweet treats you can think of!
Who doesn’t love cookies? Get a variety of your favorite flavors; you can even get some cookie sandwiches, macaroons, or find personalized decorated cookies with your wedding theme or hashtag on them!
Whatever time of year you’re getting married, pies are always popular. If pies are your favorite dessert, have a dessert table dedicated to every type of pie you love. This is particularly good for fall weddings; the fall pie flavor options seem to be endless!
Waffles or Pancakes
This idea is a little far out, but who doesn’t love breakfast? Have a hotel-style breakfast bar set-up; have guests choose their batter and any additions like chocolate chips or blueberries, and make them on the spot. Don’t forget the whipped cream, fruit, and syrup toppings!
