Today, March 14th, is commonly known as "Pi Day" – a day to honor the mathematical constant, as the first three digits are 3.14 – people everywhere are taking this as an excuse to enjoy a slice of the delicious treat, including engaged couples! It may not be as classic as wedding cake on your wedding day, but those who like to include nontraditional aspects in their big day or simply want to offer a variety of sweets for their guests may want to consider a wedding pie for their reception dessert table. 

Without being too offbeat, serving pie at your wedding is still a quirkier way to enjoy a sweet treat than the traditional wedding cake, and it's very easy to include a variety of flavors! Be inspired by the different ways pie was served at these real weddings and styled shoots in the photos below. You may get ideas for your own menu, or perhaps just a craving for your dessert tonight! Either way, be sure to click on the links beneath each wedding photo for further inspiration for your nuptials!
