That's right. Mr. Cowboy Boot and I are forgoing that tradition. "But what about the pictures with the cake? You won't have those?" My mom asked when I told her. "Eh," I replied, "Neither of us really likes cake all that much." Sure, I've loved the design of wedding cakes and even swooned over a few but their aesthetic beauty doesn't make up for their price tag--at least not at our wedding. But that doesn't mean no one will be eating sweets after dinner.
In lieu of wedding cake, we're opting for a seasonally-fresh pie bar a la this picture:

Since it will be fall at the time of our wedding, pies and crisps will mark the season. Apples, peach, cherry, raspberry, you name it, we'll have it. Um, hopefully. We're still waiting for our venue to get back to us with the catering contract so we can finalize prices and the menu. Until then, we'll be dreaming about all of the various flavors of pie we can offer. To keep you drooling, too, here are some fun inspiration boards that contain pie (all from Snippet & Ink):
