Are you serving a traditional, multi-tiered wedding cake at your reception? Or are you switching it up with a more modern, alternative dessert option? (Bring on the donut walls, candy bars, and sundae stations!)

What’s for dessert on your wedding day?

    Modern!
    We’re having a small cake to cut and either doughnuts or cupcakes for everyone else! FH doesn’t really like cake.

    Neither one of us like cake. We've opted for personal sized cheesecakes and brownie bites that will be made my my sister and MIL.

    We did a little of both! There was not one donut or pretzel left off the wall, it was a huge hit!

    Both! We did a one-tier cake plus dessert shots because the venue included those in our dinner package.

    Many of my friends got married 10 years ago so I would love to go to a wedding & have cake! Or at least cake pops. Unless the couple is totally into pie or donuts, as a guest I’d want cake. 🍰

    Modern. We are going heavy on hors d'oeuvres (6+ passed), 2-course dinner (salad and entree) and will then get people up and dancing. We'll have a 2-tiered cake for pictures (and following the tradition of freezing the top tier until one year anniversary) and an array of mini desserts for guests.
