    I wouldn't say that a wedding cake is necessary, but dessert sure is! Cake was a necessity for us, but we also considered a one-tier cake with cupcakes Smiley smile

    A wedding cake is not necessary, but some type of dessert offering is. We had a small 2 tiered cake plus a dessert bar full of other options.

    A wedding dessert is totally a must. Cake, pie, donuts whatever but If you’re having a reception you have to have something.

    I actually like this, but i don’t think it needs to be like 5 tiers, i was thinking of a two tier cake.

    We're debating between some dessert/cookie trays or having my parents drive a couple of Prantls burnt almond tortes in when they come. But neither of us really like cake so why would we bother spending a lot of money on something neither of us like? But pie, or cannoli, or lemon bars...those are winners. For us.

    Not necessary- as long as there is some type of dessert to please my sweet tooth. 😋

    This is necessary for us. I mentioned the idea of having different desserts and my fiance immediately said no, just cake. So cake it is. We are doing cupcakes though, not one large cake, and a small cake for cutting.

    Not necessary. But dessert sure is. We are having a small 2-tiered cake for cake cutting and cupcakes. We are also having a dessert table with mini pies, muffins, cookies, brownies, and donuts.

    I just want a cake big enough for me and my FH. Then I want to have a dessert table for guests so they can hopefully try many different things and no time is wasted slicing.

    It is for me! I love to bake and we love sweets! I've been asked if I would do my own cake but that's way to much work, I'm stressed out enough lol.

    Wedding cake isn't necessary. However, my FH and I are having a smaller scale cake and a dessert bar. We know not all of our guests are going to want cake (and we're also not big fans of cake) so we wanted to offer those guests something sweet that they would enjoy.

    Necessary as a 'tradition' - we are having a small cake and a huge Venetian dessert spread
