Wedding Dessert Table Ideas

Themed dessert tables are yet one more way to weave your vibe throughout your big day.

Does your wedding have a vintage-glam theme? Serve white buttercream frosting cupcakes in ornate wrappers on blingy, tiered serving trays. Is your theme modern and chic? Present your traditional white tiered cakes on large geometrical displays coupled with large floral displays.

Donuts aren’t just for breakfast….these tasty treats are perfect in place of traditional wedding cake.

Other dessert table themes include:

~ Glitzy: Incorporate crystal serving platters, sequence and mirrors. This works great for an upscale wedding! Serve a traditional wedding cake or mini pastries for that classy vibe.

Give the people what they want! Guests are sure to find their favorite cookies with a cookie dessert table.

~ Retro-glam: Think vintage candy such as suckers and homemade chocolate chip cookies. Serve these old-fashioned goodies in glass jars of varying sizes just like the 1950’s corner candy stores.

~ Garden-whimsical: Create tall towers of cupcakes, macaroons or pastries and adorn the towers and table with flowers and greenery.

~ Formal and elegant: Choose a monochromatic color scheme based off of your wedding colors and run with it! Monochromatic macaroons or cupcakes are adorable! Add a little contrast with chocolate-dipped truffles.

A candy bar is a fun way to incorporate all your favorite sweet treats.

Light and airy romantic: Light, bright decor is the name of the game. Picture fluffy buttercream, heaps of raised donuts and cream pies. Serve them on a table draped with a white tablecloth and interwoven with white or pastel tulle.

Romantic reds, whites and a three tiered cake make this dessert table a show stopper.

Rustic-casual: Create a pie bar on a long wooden table. For a more down-home vibe, use a picnic table!

A few more ideas to consider…

A mobile dessert cart is a fun way to serve your guests!

If you can’t narrow down your dessert selections, serve it all with a sign that reads, “…a few of our favorite things…”

It’s your day. Think outside the box. It’s ok to serve both cake and candy!

Cut down on the mess and fanfare with finger food desserts. Serving is easy. Cleanup? Even easier.

Tiered sponge cake, mini cheesecakes, macarons, butter mints & more create a sweet feast for the eyes and palate.

Many of your guests will appreciate a fresh fruit assortment on your dessert table. It’s perfect for guests who want something just a little bit sweet or who have sugar or gluten sensitivities. Grapes, berries and citrus fruit slices are great options.
