Alternative dessert options for your weddingAre you struggling to decide on a dessert option for your Wedding Breakfast?

Perhaps you don’t want to have a traditional wedding cake but still want to serve your guests something sweet?

How about some alternative dessert ideas for your Wedding?


Here are ten suggestions you may wish to consider…

DoughnutsWedding doughnut wall

Hire a doughnut wall. It makes a great focal point and photo opportunity. You could make the doughnuts personalised with your favourite flavours or icing to match your colour scheme, even personalised cake toppers. 

Have a look at Planet Doughnut for some great ideas.

Ice cream trike/van

Take your guests back to their childhood with the chimes of an ice-cream van or the ringing of the bell on an ice cream trike. Parked up outside your Wedding Venue, and your guests can choose their favourite flavour.

alternative dessert ideas for your Wedding -Wedding waffles


Take a look at Shake Waffle and Roll, served in a 1980s VW. This is the perfect addition to a festival-styled Wedding.


If some of your guests don’t have a sweet tooth, this can cater to all tastes, having sweet or savoury fillings. Have a look at Van Chaud

alternative dessert ideas for your Wedding


If you’re having a fire pit later in the evening, your guests can create their own S’Mores. You can also provide your own items for this, making it a perfect budget-friendly option.

Retro Sweet Cart

Not as filling as a full dessert, but still a great alternative. Think about your School Tuck shop and have our old favourites in barrels for your Guests to help themselves.

Not keen on a big Wedding Cake? – Have cupcakes instead

These will get eaten by all of your Guests – you could always have some small cake boxes available so that your guests can take them home if they’d prefer, and you’re not going to be left with a big cake to eat after your Wedding!

Go savoury instead of sweet…

Perhaps you like the idea of the tradition of cutting the cake but don’t want a cake… Here are two savoury options that can also double up evening food for your Guests – add a few crackers and some chutneys or pickles – all sorted!

Pork Pie Wedding Cake

Have a look at Eley’s based near me in Ironbridge. You can even have a bride and groom on top!

“Cheese” cake"Cheese" cake

Some leading supermarkets can help with this, or if not, your local deli should be able to put together 2, 3, or 4 rounds of cheese and tier up. Once you have done the ceremonial cutting, they can be placed on log bases and served on a buffet table to your Guests.
