Alright, folks… after a bit of a hiatus, we are back at blogging. 2014 is a new year, which means newly engaged couples who need wedding planners! One of our favorite trends as of late is the alternative to the traditional wedding cake. We’ve come up with just a few of the sweetest dessert options for your big days.

Donut Cake

Who doesn’t like donuts? No worries about having to choose a wedding cake flavor that will appeal to everyone; opt for various flavors of these (traditionally) morning snacks. Donuts are an inexpensive way to satisfy sweet teeth. Also, there is no need for cake plates or messy cutting. These are a grab and go treat!


Macaroons are an up and coming dessert in the world of weddings! These can be served in addition to a wedding cake or in place of one. The best part about these beauties is that they come in a variety of colors. Simply choose a color palette that fits into your design plan and call it a day. Finger food, at its finest.

Wedding Pie

For those of you who like rustic hints, homemade pies make for rad dessert tables. Select a few family members and friends to whip up their favorite type of pie and bring it to your wedding. Use a sweet printed tablecloth to display these goodies. Make sure that there is a variety in the pies, so that they appeal to the majority of your guests.

Not only are these alternatives to a large wedding cake adorable, but they are also a heck of a lot cheaper. So, if you are a bride on a budget, this may be just up your alley.
