Another place where couples have been catering to their personal preferences is dessert!! The traditional multi-tiered wedding cake is no longer a staple of every wedding reception, with cupcakes, cookies, candy, pies, and donuts joining the party!

Will you have a traditional wedding cake, or a more modern dessert option? Smiley cake

    Semi-modern: we are having a cake but not a large one, maybe just two tiers, and then we will have donuts

    Mix. We are having a cake with a top tier to cut and then the rest of the tiers are different kinds of cupcakes. We are also having a grooms cake.

    Modern!

    We're doing our favorite white chocolate strawberry pie from the famous Peggy Jean's Pies and then a mini pie bar for our guests.

    Both. We're having a small cake for us to cut, but doing cupcakes as the main dessert, as well as a coffee and donut bar, which I am so stinking excited about!

    We'll be more modern on this. I would like pies, cookies, and fruit at the dessert table. FH wants cake on his wedding day, so we will have a small cake to cut and sheet cake for guests.
