Cake pops can come in your favorite colors or in intricate designs to suit your wedding theme. They can be displayed in a tree like lollipops or in bouquets.

Whether it's a cute vintage cart, a truck, or an ice cream sundae station, serving ice cream to the guests of your summer wedding will always score you major kudos. (But also, I subscribe to the belief that it is never too cold for ice cream, so make your wedding an ice cream party no matter what season it is!).

Yeah, yeah the cupcake craze was so 2008. But cupcakes are still the perfect cake alternative because 1) They are still cake and 2) The options for how they can be decorated and displays are ENDLESS.

6. Cookies

If you're not a basic chocolate chip kind of couple, look into getting your cookies custom-made and decorated.
