It's the sweetest part of a wedding, after the "I Do's", we're of course talking about the desserts. Most couples head the traditional route, ordering and designing a gorgeous cake that fits the wedding's theme.

However, some brides are more adventurous and order specialty cakes in exciting or festive shapes.

And then there are brides who hate cake but, love sweets. And this is a post for designed for you! -- But, it's also for anyone who's willing to break tradition while still keeping it sweet.

CAKE POPS
They are the closest thing to cake, including the texture and taste. Cake pops also have all the style and grace without the size of a cake.

pro tip: encourage your baker to use details from your wedding. Include your color scheme or even the details of your wedding gown!

CUPCAKES
Consider these guys the older, cooler, sibling to the cake pop. They're more mature, more filling, and have so much more potential.

pro tip: serve this guy just as the party is heating up! Want to really surprise your guests? Consider hiring an ice cream truck.

GO FRENCH: MACARONS + CROQUEMBOUCHE
Go cultural and break the mold by combining these two French classics and designing an entire desserts table around the concept.

DONUTS
Do we really need to explain the joys of a donut tower?...didn't think so.
