5 Dessert Ideas That Will Make You Reconsider Your Wedding Cake

December 20, 2016 | nicole


We’re all about breaking tradition here at Junebug. While a wedding cake is a must-have for many, it’s definitely not a requirement for tying the knot. Cake may not be your cup of tea, or you may want to provide a variety of options for your guests to snack on when they take a break from the dance floor. These dessert ideas are just another way to personalize your big day. Maybe it’s tradition for you as a couple to get donuts to celebrate special occasions. Maybe there’s a pie recipe that has been passed down in your family that you want to share with your wedding guests. Maybe you just really love cupcakes! Get inspired to do something a little different, but still totally sweet, with these five dessert ideas for your wedding.
