    @wildflowersong:  Why don’t you want to have a wedding cake?  There are lots of delicious flavors to choose from – it doesn’t have to be boring and traditional.

    There are ways of eating cupcakes that make them less messy!

    I totally expect cake or cupcakes for that matter at weddings, but I wouldn’t mind cookies. I’d just find it a little strange that there was no cake!

    We got married on a 100 degree day. Cupcakes stayed in the refridgerator until after dinner. they were fine. Even if you did do sugar cookies, those would soften as well if they were left out too long.

    I’m a fan of cake at weddings, so I voted for the fudge cupcakes, but it’s YOUR wedding.  You should do what you and your fiance want.  You also have a good point about the heat, and especially so if you’re having an outdoor reception.

    Do mini cupcakes?  It’d have to be some pretty terrible cake for me to go for a cookie instead.  However I chose other, since I like white cake.  What you mentioned is too much chocolate. 🙂

    I love different things at weddings so my vote is for cookies! It’s fun and reflects what you love! 

    Im not having cake at mine… I will be having doughnuts! 🙂

    That cupcake sandwich idea is amazing. I hope I remember it next time I eat a cupcake.

    I vote cupcake, because the last/only time I ate a sugar cookie shaped like a wedding cake it didn’t taste very good. But if you test the wares first, I think it’s a cute idea 🙂

    I really don’t like frosted sugar cookies, so I would choose even the meltiest chocolate cupcake over a sugar cookie any day of the week =)

    I would definitely prefer the sugar cookies! I prefer cookies to cake almost all the time!

    I’m not a cake person so I love weddings that have alternative desserts.  I like the cookie idea.  Maybe if you’re worried that won’t be enough for people you could have a sweets table with some other desserts?  Or you could have a variety of cookies for those who don’t like sugar cookies.
