If you and your soon-to-be spouse are planning a very non traditional wedding, then it is probably safe to guess that you are not having a wedding cake at your wedding reception. The trend with weddings lately is that the bride and groom are steering clear of all and any old wedding traditions. 

For example, they are choosing to not do a dollar dance, they are choosing to not have any traditional wedding music, and they are choosing to not have a wedding cake. Instead, the bride and groom are choosing to share a much different form of wedding treat with their guests. 

Here are some wedding cake alternatives for your big day:

  • A tier of donuts
  • Local food trucks, like a Gelato truck. Crepe truck, or waffle truck that offers dessert waffles
  • Display of assorted flavors of pies
  • A tier of cupcakes
  • A tier of whoopee pies
  • Pie pops
  • Cake pops
  • Serve a platter of assorted cookies or donut holes on each guest table
  • Fruit parfaits
  • Gourmet s'mores
  • Dippin' Dots

There are so many other dessert options that you can choose from and customize to fit your wedding decor and theme, other than the traditional wedding cake. When choosing your wedding venue, you can ask if they offer any fun desserts for weddings, and if not they may be able to help or point you in the right direction.
