Every little detail of your wedding day should reflect you and your groom, right down to dessert! And while we love the classic elegance of a tiered tower of buttercream, sometimes cake just doesn’t cut it. Check out our 12 Unique Wedding Cake Alternatives below. Because nobody should have a boring dessert table!

#1 – S’mores Station

It’s no secret that we here at Marrygrams love a good s’more. But why stop at favors? Give your guests an interactive dessert experience with a DIY s’mores station! For a fun twist on an old favorite, use different flavors of chocolate or add sprinkles in your wedding colors!
