Alternatives to the Wedding Cake for the Recessionista Wedding

While we all gasp at wedding cakes, their grandeur and beauty is not always affordable. So, I've come with four alternatives to an actual wedding cake:

1. Serve up cupcakes in a cupcake tower - you can still have these displayed in a tiered fashion. Isn't this one cute! Cupcakes are really a great way to make things colorful at a wedding, too.

2. Donuts have always been popular and they can be presented in many creative ways.

3. A candy buffet stand wherein you display different kinds of candy. You can have it based on the theme of your wedding such as this one, which is a "sweet sailing-inspired" candy table:

4. Have pie carousels or you can serve different kinds of pies on a variety of stands. This idea is great especially during a Thanksgiving wedding or even during a summer 4th of July party. You can have apple, blueberry, and strawberry pies placed on pretty stands. Then you can also have smaller pies or even tarts for a festive display. And for chocolate lovers, serving a chocolate mousse pie will surely be a hit.
