Wedding cake alternatives for your wedding

Jan 30, 2019

Let Aris Affairs Photography capture the precious moments from your Prescott wedding with photos you will enjoy for a lifetime.Have you considered a healthy wedding cake alternative that could be unique and sure to please? It is becoming more and more popular to opt for decadent yet healthier desserts instead of the traditional wedding cake. Local Prescott wedding photographer Aris Affairs Photography talks about wedding cake alternatives for your Prescott wedding.

Instead of a wedding cake packed with sugar and plastered with icing, why not offer a healthy dessert for your wedding? For example, how about a fruit display? You can stack fresh, diced fruit on top of slices of gourmet cheese. By doing things like this you can have a beautiful and savory dessert that will be both budget and health conscious and will look great in your wedding photos too!

Here are a few ideas:

Yogurt dessert
Fill dessert cups or wine glasses with different flavors of yogurt. Top the yogurt with fresh fruit slices. Yogurt is available many beautiful pastel shades, so you can coordinate it with your wedding colors. For example, if your colors are pink and purple, use strawberry and blackberry, if blue, use blueberry yogurt, etc. These colors will look wonderful in your wedding photos!

Apple delight
Coordinate your wedding dessert with your color theme. Stack whole, red apples in a delicate arrangement to create the illusion of a layered wedding cake. This works great for a scarlet wedding theme. Add some caramel-coated apple wedges throughout the display. Granny Smith apples are perfect for a green wedding, or golden delicious. Top the fruit display with apple blossoms or your theme flowers.

Go organic
If you decide on a cake, do something different from the norm. There are plenty of organic options for wedding cakes. Use carob in place of chocolate, spelt flour instead of refined white flour. There are other organic alternatives too. Just ask your local caterer.

Aris Affairs Photography hopes this discussion of wedding cake alternatives for your Prescott wedding will give you some creative ideas. Aris Affairs Photography knows how important and special your wedding day is. Let us capture the beauty of your choices and turn your wedding photos into art.
