Today, brides have so many non-traditional options when planning their weddings. From wearing a wedding dress that isn’t white, to having the reception before the ceremony, there are no limits for the modern bride! That’s why many couples are opting for more chic dessert choices that almost any pastry chef can make. If this sounds appealing to you, then be sure to check out these 4 unique wedding cake alternatives.


Okay, so we can all agree pies are delicious and they remind us of our childhood and going to grandma’s house for dessert. Plus, they’re perfect for fall weddings. Many brides will create an elaborate display of different pies or pies pops, or they will place a different type of pie on each table as a centerpiece. Get creative and offer various flavors like apple, pumpkin, blueberry, strawberry rhubarb, and pecan!


Macaroons are the epitome of class and are perfect for Parisian-themed, romantic, or shabby chic weddings. Order them in a range of pretty pastel colors, and experiment with fun flavors like coconut, lavender, and green tea. Your guests won’t be able to resist these delicate and sophisticated treats.

Mini Dessert Bar

I know it sounds crazy, but not everyone likes cake! So, why not offer a diverse dessert bar, so your amazing guests can pick exactly what they want. Offer these desserts in miniature sizes, so guests don’t fill up on dessert. Order a mix of goodies, like brownies, cookies, cheesecake bites, and cannolis.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Nothing is more refreshing at a summer wedding than fresh fruit. What’s better than fresh fruit? When it’s covered it chocolate! Order your strawberries covered in milk, dark, and white chocolate, so you can appeal to everyone. They can also be sprinkled with edible pearls or drizzled with colored chocolate that matches your wedding colors.
