In lieu of a wedding cake, a dessert buffet at the reception is laden with sweets from a favorite local bakery. Extra seating cards are calligraphed with the names of the desserts; patterned paper bands and red and blue cotton ribbon trim the cake stands.
I found this on a forum and thought it was a cute idea. Each guest at the wedding made a mini pie (apple, blueberry, pecan etc) and brought it along to be arrange on the cake stand.
