Trying to decide between a traditional cake, cupcakes, donuts, or some other type of fun dessert in place of cake.

 

What are your thoughts on this? Would you miss the cake at a wedding if there were other desserts replacing it? Have any good ideas for a replacement?

 

Thanks everyone ????

I think you can go with cupcake instead of simple cake, you can also decorate these cupcakes with cupcakes stand and it looks more stylish.  :)

@@MrsHallieKay I'm having the same thoughts!!!

 

I thought about going with cupcakes or cake pops, but with our buffet dinner we selected comes with 4 dessert options. my FI is not a sweets person, so he says 'skip the wedding cake'. We were not planning on doing a formal cake-cutting either - it's just not our style. I flip flop on this decision nearly every day - one day I'm okay with no cake, the next, I feel we're missing something without the wedding cake....

 

Plus, at least at our resort, you can't bring any food from the reception, so we can't even bring the top tier back with us for the "put in the freezer and eat on the first anniversary" tradition. 

 

I ask myself - what purpose/value does the wedding cake mean to us, as a couple? 

 

let me know what you decide!

I have also been debating the same. So what we decided was that since there are other dessert options for our guests, we are purchasing a small 2 person cake just to "cut the cake"

Your wedding should stem from your own inspiration and preferences! If you're not a cake fan, that's totally OK and your guests will be OK with it too! There are lots of alternatives to the traditional wedding cake -- the main question is, would you and your sweetheart miss having traditional cake cutting photos? If not, consider some of these ideas ... I actually wrote this article for the BDW site a few years ago :)

Yup...according to me, no desert can take place of wedding cake. it's a sweet tradition which should be followed. Either it's simply your choice, after all, it's your wedding. you can replace wedding cake with cup cakes if you want

​We just had our wedding in Mexico in December, and we decided to serve the guests a dessert from the menu (we chose a chocolate mouse/crème brulee combo), which everybody loved.  We bought the smallest cake possible to do the cake cutting.   We had done a cake tasting before the wedding, and while the cake itself was awesome, we didn't like the fondant icing.  So this worked out great for us - I'd recommend it if you are on the fence about the cake.  We got the best of both worlds.

Yes, I have definitely been to a wedding where there was no actual cake, but I think they may have had a fake one just there as a prop, as you said, for the photos maybe? I don't even really get why it's such a big deal for photos but anyway, I certainly don't think it's necessary to have a cake.

    • Hi everyone! My name is Erin and I am a covid bride. My dream was to have a destination wedding. I wanted it easy, breezy and relaxed, with a whole weekend to celebrate with family and friends. I found the perfect venue, Key Largo Lighthouse Beach! (See http://www.keylargolighthouse.com ). The reviews are amazing, and my experience with the venue has been nothing but great, I have emails to prove it! My wedding was going to be four days of pure bliss, on a private beach with amazing beach houses for my bridal party to stay in (the houses can hold 25 people comfortably!) They even gave us a hugeeee discount because of covid! We planned the whole thing, including catering, desserts, an open bar, dj and photographer. But then covid hit. After moving our date back 3 times, expending our engagement far longer than we wanted, we decided enough was enough. We decided to do a small, local ceremony and reception on August 1st, and we are now married! It wasn’t my dream wedding, but it ended up being perfect, even though it was planned in two weeks! But now we’ve paid for two weddings, and we don’t feel like we need another reception. We want that money to pay off student loans, or put a down payment on a house! Or even for our future child’s college fund. However, we cannot get our money back from the venue, per the contract. Finally to the point of my post, the only way we can get a refund is by finding someone to take our place. No one would pay us directly, it would be the normal way for whoever takes over, you’d pay the venue. You’d also get our discount so you’d save money. If anyone knows someone who wants an amazing destination/beach wedding in 2021, please let me know! I’ll give you more details directly.
    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
    • Hey! That's an interesting thought. It's important to wear masks though the pandemic wave is being contained in many parts of the world. Keep safe.
