Are you a bold and audacious bride who is wanted to break the molds of wedding dessert traditions that have been passed down through the centuries of weddings? Okayyy to the girl in the back (and many more of you)!! We at lauralece 827 are for sure vibing with you on this! We all know you can’t go wrong with a traditional bride’s cake and groom’s cake, but we are here for every other dessert option possible that you could serve your wedding guest. There is nothing sweeter than love, but having an ice cream truck at your reception comes to a close second. That is why we have compiled a list of options that are fun, delicious, and sure to please even the most traditional guest.
Dessert bars have become very popular in weddings over the years. Guests love them because it offers them the opportunity to choose which dessert they way or try a mix of them all. For example, you could have a cookie bar in which you line up jars of different types of cookies. You could also stack them on a cake stand to take the place of your wedding cake. Pair with a cold glass of white or chocolate milk for a nice extra touch to satisfy your guests’ tastes buds. I mean, sure, any cookie is good, but adding the milk to your dessert bar will be a win!
Another option that is perfect for a fall or winter celebration is a smores bar. Your guests will love to cozy up with a smore, and it is a unique addition to any wedding. A coffee or hot chocolate bar is another great option, especially for colder weather. At the end of the night, offer your guests a warm cup of coffee before they leave! Have different flavors of creamer and fun toppings, such as cinnamon or hazelnut powder.
Quick grab-and-go bite-size servings are very popular, especially with the kids! For example, have cake or pie pops available. What is even more special about these is decorating cake pops to match your wedding decor. What a nice touch to the dessert table!
Another example is having a churro station. Serve hot-and-ready churros with an assortment of dipping sauces and sugary powders. This is very unique, but who doesn’t love a churro?
Make your wedding more personal by including your family’s favorite desserts. Whether that is Grandma’s homemade red velvet or an aunt’s homemade chocolate pie, it will make your family feel as though they have a special place in the day. This is also a great way to make family members feel special, important, and needed on your big day.
Having local vendors come in and provide desserts is always exciting! For example, the famous Jeni’s Ice Cream or Five Daughter Donuts are two options that guarantee a delicious treat, and a special wedding detail that your guests are sure to remember! Have a dessert truck from your local area could make the day special by incorporating something from the town you got hitched.
These are just a few of the many delicious options! We encourage our brides to think outside the box when it comes to wedding planning. Do what makes you happy and have fun with it! We would love to talk and help you make your wedding dessert fantasies come true!
