Wedding Dessert Bars

While we love wedding cake, we can't help but think the dessert bar trend is kind of genius. If you don't love cake (or just don't have room in your budget for one), you can go with a variety of desserts as an alternative. Or you can indulge your sweet tooth by having a small cake but also giving your guests tons of other treats to sample. Here are some of our favorite wedding dessert bars to inspire you.
