Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life. For your guests, however, it's a day to eat copious amounts of great food.
You should be able to have everything you like at your reception, but it's important to make sure that your guests are happy, too. While you don't have to go with the traditional tiered wedding cake, there are a few desserts you should never include... no matter how much you love them.

What is this monstrosity even? Fruit, marshmallows, and Satan's vomit? Unless you're throwing a Mad Men wedding, forget about the desserts that only your grandma's into.

Can you add "fire hazard" to the menu?
When it comes to feeding large groups of people, stick to the classics. Nobody ever gets angry at cake, a cookie, or piece of pie!
