On this mathematical holiday, we're celebrating numerical pi's delicious homophone, pie. Not only does pie pair perfectly with weddings, but it's one of the most seasonal foods around. Get inspired to add a little of pie's golden-brown goodness to your wedding day.
1. Pie Favors

Who says pie can't be as elegant as its cake counterpart? Packed in a quaint to-go box and tied with ribbon, this favor is just as beautiful as a fondant-adorned personal pastry. You definitely won't have any guests leaving these favors behind.
Smaller portions mean guests can try as many flavors as their hearts desire. We love the combination of the mismatched tiered dessert trays and eucalyptus garland, which comes together for a perfectly charming dessert display.
Instead of one big tiered cake, a display of multiple pies work just as well. By opting for separate pies (or cakes!) you can pick and choose multiple flavors that don't have to live together in one confection, and guests can select their favorites.
Convincing basketweave fondant means you can have your pie-impersonating dessert and eat it too. That's right, this creative confection is actually a cake! You could even play up the pie theme in a filling like raspberry jam or lemon curd.
