Updated: Jun 23, 2022

Not into a wedding cake? Not everyone is and that's ok! Let's take a look at 6 alternative ideas!

Wedding Desert cake pops

1. A pie bar - maybe you don't like cake but love pie! Try creating a pie bar with various flavor options. You could do full-size pies, or even mini pies to skip having to cut the pie into slices! (Plus they are super cute!)

2. A dessert bar- mix various desserts such as brownies, pudding shooters, fudge, petit fours, cupcakes, chocolate-covered fruit or pretzels, cannolis, etc.

3. A cookie or brownie bar- bring in trays of various types of cookies or brownies. You could even individually wrap and put cute thank you tags on them and have them double as favors!

4. A candy bar- why not let your inner child out and go crazy "like a kid in a candy shop"! Try adding containers and mixed bowls filled with a variety of candy options for guests to select from. Be sure to also provide goody bags and mini scoops for your guests to self-serve.

5. A donut wall- Donut walls are easy to make and personalize if you like to DIY, or you can rent them. (They even have tabletop donut stands) Simply hang a selection of fresh donuts on the pegs and allow guests to choose as they please.

6. An Ice-cream bar! With the help of your catering company or hiring a special vendor who strictly provides ice cream, you can provide your guests with a one-of-a-kind, unexpected experience. Add on a "topping bar" to take it to the next level!
