Bring your sweet tooth and appetite to the table as alternative wedding desserts are all the rage. Whether you opt to skip the traditional wedding cake all together or decide to have some extra treats for guests to enjoy during your wedding reception, your options are nearly endless. With a creative edge, we have compiled a list of decadent treats that your guests will absolutely love that will make your wedding an event that they will not soon forget.
Who doesn’t love a warm slice of pie topped with cold, creamy vanilla ice cream? We sure do and we think your guests will, too. You can choose to go with seasonal pies to make the best of what fruits are in season. Strawberry and blueberry are perfect for summer while spicy apple and pumpkin are tasty for fall. Don’t forget to add a side of whipped cream or ice cream to top it off.
These tasty treats are great for an afternoon wedding for guests that are looking for a dessert that is on the lighter side. Nix the granola and you’ve got a gluten free dessert for those with dietary restrictions. Make it fun by setting up a parfait bar where guests can choose their own toppings such as berries, granola, chocolate chips. A bar will encourage guests to mix and mingle with one another.
Imagine walking into your wedding event to see a tower of mouthwatering doughnuts displayed in a tower beautifully on a table for your guests to enjoy. You can choose to serve them all one flavor or mix it up with several such as a cream filled eclair, a vanilla glaze and a chocolate sprinkle. In addition to the full size doughnuts, you can offer doughnut holes on the doughnut tower. Everyone loves doughnuts so you will not disappoint with this delicious wedding dessert.
Harken back to your childhood of enjoying a warm cookie with ice cold milk. Your guests will feel nostalgic by enjoying this special treat. You can surprise your guests by serving this treat later in the evening to give guests a break from dancing the night away as a pick me up. You can offer a few different varieties such as chocolate chip, snickerdoodle and peanut butter.
Who screams for ice cream? Your guests will! You can serve this delicious dessert in the form of sundaes or opt for an ice cream bar to allow guests to build their own creation to brighten their taste buds. Opt for the standard flavors of chocolate, vanilla and strawberry as a base and throw in one or two alternatives like rocky road and mint chocolate chip. Everyone will find a delicious treat to make them happy.
One of the most beautiful desserts out there, your guests will absolutely love these decadent cookies. These gorgeous cookies can serve many purposes from place cards (yes you can’t paint on them!) to thank you gifts for guests or a little pick me up treat for guests to enjoy while dancing.
