8 Wedding Dessert Ideas for Nontraditional Couples
Calling all nontraditional couples! Did you know you don’t actually have to serve cake at your wedding? It’s true! Especially in recent years, couples have decided to forgo the traditional tiered wedding cake and go with something that better reflects their style. Having a hard time figuring out exactly what you want? Here are some fun and unique wedding dessert ideas for nontraditional couples!
Cookies are a simple and inexpensive dessert that everyone can enjoy. If you’re thinking about having cookies at your wedding, there are tons of options for you to choose from. A more modern option for cookies is sugar cookies that are professionally decorated to match the theme of your wedding. They’ll usually come in different shapes and sizes and have multiple designs you can choose from. If you’re looking to go a simpler route, get an array of chocolate chip, macadamia nut, oatmeal raisin, or sugar cookies and serve them with glasses of milk. Bring a nostalgic feeling to your reception!

Getting married in holy matrimony? A donut wall might be the perfect option for your wedding! Donuts are a great substitute for cake since they’re still light and fluffy, and they’re another dessert that provides your guests with options. Have them choose between any flavors you decide on and make it interactive with a donut wall! On top of being delicious, they also make for great photo opportunities!
A candy bar might not be something you’ve thought of before, but it’s always a hit among those guests with an extra sweet tooth. A candy car can also be a less expensive option for your wedding dessert. Mix and match tons of different sized and colored dishes to serve your candy out of. Then, provide the candy and some gift bags so your guests can take their creation home if they so desire. Again, this is another great opportunity for your guests to get interactive and enjoy themselves while the festivities progress.
