What’s the first thing that pops into your head when you think of a wedding dessert? Cake! It’s tasty and traditional, but lately, couples have started to break barriers and opt for additional sweet treats on their special day. There are loads of options for what you can serve as dessert along with your traditional cake. Let’s get into it!
Everyone has seen the trendy photos of elaborate donut walls at weddings, and they’re SO fun! Whether you decide to go with a wall or just a simple spread to display, your guests will love them. They’re easy to grab with one hand and don’t tie your guests down to a table. They can munch on their donut and boogie all at the same time!
Candy is an awesome way to knock out two birds with one stone. Not only can you serve it as a compliment to cake, but you can also consider it your wedding favor to each guest. Prepackaged gift bags filled with all of your favorite candies can be placed at each table setting for guests to take home later that night. Or a candy bar that your friends and family can eat for mid-dance snacks! Everyone is sure to find something they love.
Cake pops are the modern twist on a traditional dessert! They are the perfect solution for those who don’t want to give up cake entirely but want to spice things up a little bit. The best part about cake pops, you can customize them any way you want. Want to make them holiday-themed? Check! How about your wedding colors? Oh yeah! Just make sure you find a bakery that can accommodate all of your wishes and you’re set.
Chocolate. Chocolate. Chocolate. There are so many different directions this tasty flavor can go in. One of the most unique ideas is to customize chocolate bars for your guests to enjoy. Consider designing a wrapper that has your wedding colors and date on the front. Not only does everyone get to enjoy a tasty treat, but you get to have fun designing a unique wrapper.
Breakfast food can be sweet, savory, or both! Why not let your guests decide. Consider having a waffle bar where people can top their treat with whatever they like. If they’ve got a sweet tooth they can go for toppings like crushed cookies, gummy worms, or maple syrup. Feeling savory? They can spoon chips, bacon, or ranch on top! The versatility of a waffle bar is sure to please.
The possibilities are endless when it comes to the sweet treats at your wedding. Straying from the norm can have some pretty awesome results, like that waffle bar mentioned above! There’s no limit to what you can serve, so get brainstorming!
