Have wedding cake/cupcakes OR my favorite dessert, brownies! I love them and so does FI:) I think that I could put like 3 types out. Chewy fudge, lemon bar type and like choc cherry cheesecake. It may cost less than cake or cupcakes. I would still get a little one for us to cut too. Like a verrry small one. Trying to cut costs to pay for the photog I want and know does an awesome job. She did our e-pics/fam pics:) It’s about $200 over budget so I figure cut costs with the dessert.

I love most sweets, so I would be happy with brownies! To make it more appropriate for a wedding, I do think it would be neat if you did special types/flavors and had a nice display for them- nothing fancy necessarily, but something eye catching.
I think it is a nice idea to save money, and photography is one thing I think you shouldn’t scimp on!

@cherryblossomlove: i think the brownies are a GREAT idea! I love brownies, and I actually don’t love cake! :). Have your brownies and eat them too, haha! 😉

I love brownies! Is it possible to do a combination of cupcakes and brownies, though? I know my FI hates all things chocolate, so if there were a vanilla (or non-chocolate) cupcake option, you could satisfy everyone!

Since it’s a wedding, I would like cake, as it’s traditioanl, and most expect it. I do love brownies too though!
We’re doing a 7 or 8 tiered cake like this :
Each cake will have be a differant flavor, and then we’re also doing a huge candy/dessert bar with brownies, cheesecakes, cupcakes, ect.

I’d prefer brownies to cake but I do know at least one chocolate hater (crazy, I know, but apparently there are many who are not seduced by the dark bean of pure joy). So, I would suggest half-brownie, half-other option (e.g., cupcakes), like a PP said.

Yum (: I think the brownies option would be great. I think this would definitely work if you displayed them nicely like a little brownie bar. Sounds awesome!
Instead of doing a mix of brownies and cupcakes for all the chocolate haters 😉 you could do brownies and blondies. That way it still follows the theme (:

I personally loooove brownies, but I wouldn’t want them in place of cake or cupcakes. I like the idea of having the big cake to cut into.

If you love brownies then brownies it is! I’d eat it.

I like the brownie idea (especially the different flavors) but not the small cutting cake. If you and the groom get cake, so should everyone else. You could cut into a giant brownie?

I picked cake/cupcakes only because I just love cupcakes. I love brownies too.
And now I want to eat both 😐
