A few cream pies or a cheese cake would be good.  DH doesn’t like cake either so we just had a small cake and pies.  DH and I don’t like fruit or pumpkin pies so we had chocolate, banana (his fave), and cheese cake.

I think adding some cream pies is a great idea! I feel like pretty much everyone likes cream pies. I think you have quite a few choices already, so people should be happy with the flavors!

I just went to a wedding where they did fruit pies – peach, apple, and blueberry I believe – and it was amazing! 😀 Love this idea!

This is a great idea 🙂 Pecan, pumpkin, apple, you can also have apple tarts (not strictly a pie, but a variation), how about some cookies too? You could do oatmeal raisin/other fall-ish flavors? Just to throw some variety in there…

I love the idea of pies!!!!! I really wanted to ask our local guests to bring home-made pies, and Fiance and I were going to have a pie contest at the reception – instead of “cutting the cake,” we would cut a small slice of each pie to taste it, and give out ribbons for best cakes!!! Something to consider 🙂  That may save you a lot of time and labor on a very, very busy week!

Other flavors I’ve always loved are strawberry rhubarb pie, cherry pie, peach cobbler pie, blackberry pie, and chocolate cream pie.

Good luck!

YUM. For our summer wedding, we had (in addition to chocolate cake), cheesecake and Key lime pie. I am 100% in favor of pies, and think that the ones you’ve suggested will be great.

Oh I LOVE that idea! I am crazy for pies! I wonder how much it would cost to get a bunch of mini-pies (tarts?) done?

One of my friends did several types of cheese cake for their wedding and they were to die for!

For a fall wedding I’d have: apple, peach, strawberry rhubarb, cherry, raspberry, maybe blackberry.

I’m all for the non-traditional wedding desserts.  Those are just my favorites to eat in the fall time.  I was thinking maybe a pumpkin pie too but I didn’t know if that would seem too Thanksgiving?

You could make and preserve pie filling now, and bake the pies with it in October.  I make pie fillingall summer long so we can have fruit pies all year round– feel free to PM me and I can give you some recipes, it’s SUPER easy!

We are doing pies instead of cake as well! We are asking 12 or so people to bring two of their favorite homemade pies for us. I think we’ll have a wide variety but these are probably going to be the most popular: apple, strawberry rhubarb, maybe some cream pies, pumpkin pies and mixed berry. I want to leave it up to the people baking for us as far as type goes, but I know I have to make sure we don’t end up with 20 apple pies too.

What about chocolate cream pie, or peanut butter pie? Something for those that don’t love fruit pies.

And my fav lemon merengue–or key lime!

October may be too late, but what about pear (w/ blueberry). we are late Sept wedding and you cateror suggested using pear as it is in season. We are doing crisps. You could always add cranberries to apple as well.

Sounds like you have some great ideas already going.
