More and more we are seeing couples that are looking for ways to personalize their day in order to match their personalities. A lot of the time, this can mean veering away from the traditional wedding cake.
There is an array of possibilities when it comes to choosing desserts.
We have listed out a few of the pros and cons of each, hoping you’ll find the tips helpful!
The most common tends to be Cupcake Towers
- Pros: Variety of flavors, colors & designs. Towers add instant “décor”
- Cons: If someone doesn’t like cake, this defeats the purpose of veering from wedding cake
Another popular treat is the Dessert Table
- Pros: Can offer a large variety of treats, instant “décor,” can be a late night snack
- Cons: Someone has to be in charge of refilling, once its been dug into, it may no longer add to the décor, if outdoors animals may get into it, if indoors and there are kids attending, it will be an instant attraction. Once it runs out, it either has to be torn down, or it can be an eye sore.
- Pros: Acts as wedding favor, fun to incorporate wedding colors & décor
- Cons: Have to source candy bags, scoops, and something to display the candy in, it can get messy, once it runs out it may hinder décor
