Dessert Ideas to Make Your Reception Extra-Sweet

The Sweet Side

Believe it or not, you don’t actually have to serve cake at your wedding if you choose not to. Wedding cake will always remain a classic, but in light of new styles of celebrating, planning beautiful desserts that can double as decor can be the most unique and fun part of wedding planning. Lately, couples are pairing with local bakers who are serving up their very best, giving couples the creme de la creme of dessert to celebrate their special day. The tastiest part of your celebration can be as custom and curated as you’d like it to be. Here are some of our favorite tried and true and unique dessert ideas for making your day that much more delicious. We wouldn’t want to celebrate our special day without Instagram-worthy dessert.

One delectable, sweet treat that remains delicious in every iteration is cookies. Wedding cookies have taken on a world of their own and make a sweet addition to the day. Sometimes, they’re even too pretty to eat! In the same light, cupcakes make a great alternative to a traditional cake (especially in the times of COVID, they are perfect for your guests to enjoy in individual servings.) The frosting and cake combinations can be fun to customize and leave your guests with a choice of what will satisfy their sweet tooth. One of our personal favorites reigns the donut wall. This is the ultimate Instagram-worthy dessert option that will leave your guests excited and eager to take a bite, snap a picture and satisfy their sweet tooth. Donuts are the perfect dessert to bring with you on the dance floor, mouthwatering and mess-free. If you love wedding cake but don’t want to have a traditional tiered cake, cake pops may be the modern take perfect for you. These can be aligned on a beautiful tray and double as decor, following your wedding theme. If sticking to a classic is more your style as a couple, a small classic and beautiful wedding cake makes a timeless choice.
