Wedding cakes are such an integral part of weddings they’ve become the symbol that represents weddings! So how does a modern couple respect the tradition, but break free? If you’re planning a rustic elegant wedding you’re not looking for a cookie cutter experience, but that doesn’t mean you want to cut your ties to history and tradition completely.
We’ve had the good fortune here at Riverside Farm of working with creative couples that have come up with a variety of solutions to the wedding cake dilemma. Some couples chose to have a wedding cake, but display it or decorate it in a unique way that represents their personality as a couple. Some couples have served other wedding treats and deserts. Couples celebrating the Vermont outdoorsy lifestyle might like s’mores over the fire. For a folksy farm wedding feel pies are a great option. Want cake, but can’t decide on the flavors? How about a cupcake bar? Looking for a desert guests can bring home with them? Maybe a free penny candy shop. Looking to entertain your guests, while celebrating the joy of youth? How about a Make Your Own Sundae bar. Here are photos of a few unique dessert ideas and displays we hope will inspire you.
