  1. You serve pulled pork sliders and pigs-in-a-blanket at your wedding, so why not bacon? It's the ultimate crowd pleaser and doesn't always have to bring up memories of the closest Waffle House. You can even get creative with it, like having a pile of maple bacon doughnuts alongside your wedding cake. See some of the most creative ways bacon was served at weddings below -- with not a pancake or egg in sight.

    One of David's favorite foods is bacon pimiento sandwiches. So when it came time for him and Kaitlin to pick their wedding menu, he knew they had to be included. And their guests absolutely loved them. "Everything was delicious, but the food that all our guests could not stop talking about were the bacon pimiento cheese bites!" says Kaitlin.
