When it comes to picking a dessert for your wedding, a wedding cake may be the obvious option. However it is not your only option. Whether you and your fiancé aren’t big cakes fans, your guests may not be into cake or you just want to try something a little offbeat, give a try to a few of our options below as dessert alternatives for your big day
Cookies may be the way to go if you are looking for something easy and mess free! Cookies come in a variety of flavors and can be complex or simple. They are easy finger foods so your guests could have 2 or 3 and head straight to the dance floor. A cookie display would also open up the opportunity to have dessert set up before dinner so there is no time in between finishing dinner and enjoying a moist chocolate chip or a peanut butter press!
- Candy Bar
If you like the low key and mess free option but cookies sound crumb-y you may want to spring for a Candy Bar. A candy bar is a set up with a variety of different types of candies that guests can collect and enjoy. Whether your set up is color coordinated or just you and your fiancés favorites they give a light and easy feel to your reception area. Candy can come in chocolate or fruit flavors giving you any option from chocolate bar to rock candy!
If you are looking for more of a formal setting for dessert but cake isn’t your favorite thing maybe spring for a selection of pies? Pie can be customized to include many different flavors. They can be fruit pies, chocolate, pudding, sweat potato, etc. the options are unlimited. Pies also are round in shape and a display could give you that wedding feel you may be afraid you are losing. They are easy to serve and pair well with a large scoop of vanilla ice cream or cool whip!
If none of these options are really hitting home for you and you want something that can be elegant and easy to serve why not go for cupcakes! They are small and give the perfect serving to each guest. They can be decorated to match your colors and themes and can be baked and frosted with your favorite flavors and fillings. Cupcakes are a great half way point between a full tiered cake and a laid back candy bar!
Whether you go with a beautifully decorated cake or an easy going Candy Bar, your guests will fall in love with those sweet treats at your reception!
