The 22 Best Wedding Pies
Who says you have to serve cake at your wedding? Who says you have to serve just cake? Whether you and your future husband or wife don't like the traditional dessert at all or you're looking to supplement it with other delicious sweets, consider serving cake's close cousin—pie—at your celebration. Not only is the treat a unique option, but it comes in so many different flavors, you're bound to find one (or more) that you'll love. In fact, we've rounded up a list of some of our favorite types, plus a few creative ways to display them at your reception.
Common classics include apple pie and pecan pie, the latter of which is shown here. This couple served the tasty Otium dessert alongside a quirky sign that read, "I only have pies for you"—how cute. For something tangy, try lemon meringue pie; for something fun, try whoopie pies—both of which appear ahead. No matter your favorite fruit or other filling, there's something that'll satisfy your sweet tooth in our roundup.
It's not just about flavor, though. We've also highlighted ideas for how to serve the dessert(s). While regular ol' pies are perfectly acceptable for your event, you can also offer individual pies, pie pops, or even pie wedding favors. Pies can be displayed on stands or tables, just like cakes, or you can commit to a full pie bar or station, where guests can choose from an assortment. No matter what flavor you pick or how you choose to display pies for guests, we're certain there won't be a single slice left at the end of the night.
If you're feeling generous, have a mini pie waiting at each guests' place setting! These ones were baked by Poppies & Posies.
