Pie instead of wedding cake?

I personally haven’t been to a wedding where it was done, but I’m dying to go to one, since pie tops the list of desserts to me. We might have mini ones at our cookie table (a tradition in our area). 

And come on, who doesn’t love pie??

I did it!  I had an assortment of pies and a 3-tiered cake stand with 3 cakes, smallest was our cutting cake at 4″: coconut, red velvet, and white chocolate with raspberry filling.  Everyone’s favorite was the peekaboo heart cherry pie.

I have been to one and I didn’t love it. I’m not a big fan of pie and they only had fruity ones – I don’t eat fruit pies because the consistency is just gross to me. If they had had chocolate pie I would have had a piece of that, but I don’t eat apple pie or anything like that.

It’s a little bit of a trend, just like some people have cupcakes or whatnot. I personally don’t like it.

@Twyla_Smith:  I think its becoming more common. We are not having a big wedding cake instead we are doing like 9 different small cakes of various flavors on vintage cake stands.

We had wedding cupcakes and wedding pie. Neither of us really like cake that much and they are SO expensive around here. My husband does LOVE his pie though.



I don’t have a good picture of the pies, but rest assured that they were well loved.

@Twyla_Smith:  My cousin just did this at her wedding and to be honest I preferred it over wedding cake! She had warm blueberry, peach and cherry pie with vanilla ice cream. SO delicious! Out of all the wedding’s I’ve been to I think I’ve enjoyed the cake once…maybe twice. I wouldn’t be disappointed if someone didn’t have cake at all. I think it’s nice when people decide to have something different!

We will not be going this route, however we are having a dessert bar/table in addition to our cake. I hope everyone will find something they like!

My sister did it 2 years ago. It’s their favourite dessert and they had a traditional Icelandic pie called ‘wedding bliss’ so it couldn’t have been more perfect.

@Twyla_Smith:  We are doing miniature wedding pies (one pecan, one peach, and either chocolate silk or lemon meringue). I absolutely hate cake. I’m a weirdo.

I LOVE pie – I’d have a piece of pie over cake in a heartbeat.

Unfortunately we aren’t doing pies – we’re doing cupcakes. But I say go for it!

We didn’t do pie, but we had cupcakes and banana pudding shots instead of the traditional cake. My DH doesn’t really like cake, but he loves the banana pudding that his family makes, so we asked the caterer to make something similar. I thought it was really unique and very us.

We served pie. It was a big hit, gone in seconds! We had strawberry + rhubarb, mixed berry, lemon curd and dark chocolate. It made a lot of sense with our summer-y, farm-fresh menu. We never considered cake!
