Delicious and Unique Dessert Ideas your Guests will Love

Natalie's Notes

Traditionally, a beautifully prepared cake is cut and enjoy by the bride and groom and their wedding guests..however, we do not think the sweets need to stop there. Whether or not you want cake at all, want just a personal sized cutting cake, or want some additional dessert options, we have a variety to share with you. We have taken a look back at some of our most unique dessert ideas. Not only are they a delicious alternative, the displays will be sure to wow your guests. We bet you can’t get through these images without getting hungry for sweets!

Donut Bar. The latest craze in the world of sweets, donuts make an excellent alternative to the traditional cake. We suggest picking an assortment of flavors and go with a mini size, that way guests get can try all of the flavors!

Full Sweets Table. Everyone loves options when it comes to desserts. This gorgeous display from our Gatsby themed birthday party was an ultimate crowd pleaser. The overall theme of gold and black with pops of pink created the perfect color pallet for this awesome event. Don’t forget a goody bag or box for guests to take home and enjoy later!

Gelato Station. After all that dancing, why not cool down with some refreshing gelato? We suggest picking at least four different flavors, two flavors on the sweeter side such as a yummy chocolate gelato, and two fruity and refreshing flavors. You can never go wrong with a cold treat!

Candy Station…and more desserts. How fun is this candy station from Dana and Ryan’s Orange County wedding? This candy station not only was tasty, but they were hand picked by the bride and groom as their favorites. We love incorporating details into our bride and groom’s wedding that represents a piece of their personality, and of course we had to offer more adorably decadent treats.

Personal Sized Cake & Mini Cupcakes. For those brides or grooms out there that aren’t the biggest fans of cake, but still want to have a cake to cut, this idea is perfect for you. Incorporate a personal sized cake with a great cake topper, and surround it with desserts you think you and your guests will enjoy.

Cotton Candy Station. Cotton Candy certainly brings a wedding up a notch. Guests will feel like a kid at a carnival again by choosing their flavors and watching their cotton candy stick form. Dress up your station with pops of pink and fun patterned details.

Mini Pies. Is your mouth watering yet? For those of you that really want to switch things up, mini pies are an excellent idea. Whether you have a rustic barn wedding or luxurious ballroom wedding, pies are always a hit.

Ice Cream Sundae Cart. We must say, the ice cream sundae cart was hands down one of the biggest wedding dessert successes we’ve had. Guests swarmed the cart and began putting together their own delicious creation. A variety of sauces, chocolates, fruits, nuts, and cookies will be sure to excite your guests and have them keep coming back for more.
