Pies..?

Hey Ladies,
I think this is my first or second post on the Oct 11 board (typically I stick to my "area" board) but I had a question that I think you might be able to help me out with better than the ladies on the other board....

FI and I are not huge cake eaters, we do like pies though... We will still have a tradition cake for those guests who want cake but I have heard that some brides are now going with pies.... are you? have you ever been to a wedding that had pies vs cake?

Also, do you know where I can purchase pies in bulk for "cheap"?

THANKS!

Re: Pies..?

  • we're not, mainly because Vhati (my FI) isn't a big pie eater.

    Personally, I think if it's what you prefer, go for it!

    Friends of ours had a lemon merangie pie for the groom's cake, because it was the groom's favorite (can't blame him, it's mine too!)

    I think you're safe with pies, since it's more you.

    Try Costco; their bakery section is awesome.

  • Go for the pie! I know I love pie but would only eat just a little since I don't have a big sweet tooth and fiance is not a fan of pie. I think our moderator is having mini pies as her favors. You can get them for cheap at walmart and they are pretty tasty. personally I like a lot of the pies from House of Pie. Costco, SAMs Club, a traditional bakery (may sell them), or your local grocery store would sell pies.

  • Pie is J's favorite thing in the world, so we are seriously considering a pie bar instead of cake. Or getting coldstone catering. Or a croquembouche, or having huge piles of chocolate truffles. You don't have to have cake, and you don't have to do something simply because other people expect you to do it. Unconventional is fun. :)
  • We're doing miniature pies along with cake.  There are 8 different flavors and I'm buying them in bulk from Wal-Mart for $.48 each.  They are pretty decent for the price.
  • Future-mrs, did you try the pumpkin mini pie at Walmart?
    We tried the pecan which was good, but the pumpkin felt like...undercooked.
    I don't know if they are all like that or if maybe it was just our local one not baking it long enough!  I'm all worried about it.

    You might ask but I believe they ship them in.  I don't think they bake them right there...
  • You know, I bet you're right.  I didn't even think of that.  I'll have to check that out.
    I'd like to order 50 extra-baked pumpkin pies, please...

  • You could bake them a little more yourself.  Just throw them out of the box, still in there pans on a cookie sheet and bake them for a few minutes....somethin to think about.
