The Latest Wedding Dessert Trend: Easy as Pie

A popular wedding trend that promises to continue is comfort food. Whether served at the cocktail hour, reception or after-party, mini burgers, hot dogs and grilled cheese sandwiches, mac ‘n cheese, ice cream, cupcakes and candy bars are always big hits with newlyweds and their guests. Let’s face it, we all love to indulge, guilt-free (it’s a wedding, after all!) in these mouth-watering treats.

And now, there’s a new comfort food in town that’s sure to start making wedding appearances: The Pie. Talk about comfort food! Does anything really beat those memories of Mom or Grandma’s homemade apple pie? I think not. So why not make your wedding even more memorable by treating your guests to some unforgettable pie treats? David Tutera, BG contributor and star of WEtv’s “My Fair Wedding,” plans to showcase pies at his brides’ celebrations. “They make such a unique statement,” says David, “and really personalize a wedding.” Just take a look at these amazing pie treats, courtesy of Pillsbury. First up, Pie Pops:

Can’t you just picture them on a dessert table or passed around at the reception? And I love these strawberry-rhubarb mini pies which can also be served at a bridal shower or rehearsal dinner.

Another favorite are these cute pie poppers that you can display on the dessert table or give to guests in their goodie-bags:

It goes without saying that these treats aren’t just for the wedding day. I’m sure that you’ll love trying them out for yourselves before and after the big day.
