Here at Warehouse 215, we have really been seeing an increase in couples who want their wedding to be “unique”, with something that sets them apart from the norm. There are plenty of ways to accomplish this, starting with our historic and unconventional space! We see a lot of trends come through our venue, and one we think goes a long way with guests is a Cake Alternative! Having a multi-tiered, white cake with a little Bride & Groom on top has been tradition for quite some time, but more recently, couples are looking for something a little more exciting. (Side note: we definitely aren’t knocking traditional wedding cakes, WE LOVE CAKE!)
Let’s get to the good stuff!
These are essentially mini, fried cakes! If you aren’t looking to go too crazy in the other direction, donuts could be the way to go. No utensils, no plates, no worries! You will also get the chance to offer variety, which you wouldn’t be able to do with a cake.
Another great way to offer variety to your guests! You can even offer mini pies for convenience (no need to stop dancing and sit down to enjoy your treat). There are always the favorites; apple, blueberry, chocolate, etc. Keep the season in mind so that you offer options like fresh berry pies during the summer or pumpkin during the fall. Maybe offer a little ice cream on the side!
Who doesn’t love a good s’more? Seriously, who? The classic flavors of graham cracker and chocolate mixed with fluffy marshmallow is undeniably delicious! Check out Toasted Mallow, a local Gourmet S’mores & Marshmallow shop. They offer over 35 different flavored marshmallows! These would also be a great take-home gift for guests.
Cookies & Milk:
A childhood favorite, cookies & milk will leave your guests feeling warm and fuzzy after a day filled with love! The possibilities are endless with this choice as well; chocolate chip, peanut butter, white chocolate macadamia nut… The list goes on!
If you are the type of couple looking to step outside of the customary wedding trends, don’t feel like you have to change everything about your day. Even with a simple swap of a traditional wedding cake for another tasty treat, your specific and unique style will certainly shine through!
