Weddings are an expression of a couple's love for one another. From the florals to the music, cuisine to the decor - everything should be personalized to the couple. In the past, picking out the perfect wedding cake was a non-negotiable. And while a classic wedding cake will never go out of style, replacing traditions such as this with aspects that are more personal is becoming increasingly acceptable, if not celebrated. So, if you aren's a fan of cake, don't have a cake! There are no rules. Find something you crave and share your tasty treats with your guests.

Check out 5 of our favorite alternatives to a traditional wedding cake. Because, afterall, it's truly YOUR day and you should look forward to eating eating every. last. bite.
