The first thing you need to remember is that this is your wedding! You can have/not have whatever your heart desires. There are no rules.


Here are 6 alternative options for your “wedding cake”

Have a cookie bar

Cookies are so good, and maybe you prefer them over cake. Go for it! If you still want to have the traditional cake cutting, purchase a small cake just for the cake cutting. It doesn’t have to feed your guests; that is what the cookies are for.

Serve pies

I know lots of people who prefer pies over cake. It is totally acceptable to serve pies instead of cake. Pies can still be decorated very beautifully, and you can still have a “cake cutting” with them.

Do cupcakes

Cupcakes can be exquisitely decorated and can be all different shapes and sizes. These are a desert that can definitely be played around with to really work well with your wedding.




Rice Krispies cake

I have a couple this summer that is having a Rice Krispies wedding cake. I love this idea because it’s so unique and completely acceptable. I know several people who would love a cake like this over a traditional one.

Ice cream cake

Ice cream is amazing. Why not incorporate that into your wedding? There are so many things that you can do with ice cream. Cake, cones, bowl….I’m sure your guests will love it.

Whoopie pies

These are nice because they are individual. You can also make the filling your wedding colors and wrap them with some gorgeous packaging. You can even label them with your wedding information and have them as a favour.




Whatever you decide, I’m sure it will be wonderful!
