Every wedding is beautiful but ours is the sweetest

When it comes to your once in a lifetime wedding celebration, every detail needs to tie in perfectly. So why stop at your dessert table? In fact, as the celebrated American chef, Julia Child once said,
“A party without just a meeting.”

Here are three tips that can help you to plan your wedding dessert table.

1)   Whole cakes vs cupcakes

Your sense of convenience should help you make the decision for this one. While intricately detailed, large, whole cakes are beautiful and a sight to behold on dessert tables, it might be a bit of a hassle to serve to your guests. Also, whole cakes might not be sufficient for large wedding parties.

Cupcakes, or other bite-size desserts on the other hand are able to solve both concerns. Not only do they come in a variety of sizes – small, bite sized options to your average sized ones, they also come in a variety of flavours. This means you will not have to spend sleepless nights making difficult choices between Red Velvet and Chocolate Ganache.

2)   Wedding themes

The theme of your wedding should always be at the heart of all the d├ęcor decisions (including that of your dessert table) that you make. That however, does not mean that if your theme is romance, that all of your desserts should be pink or red in colour with overflowing hearts. The idea is to insert subtle themed details so that it is not an overkill. 

So for a romantic themed wedding, try having one or two large pink, red or even lavender coloured cakes or strawberry towers as a centrepiece and then several other small desserts in complimentary colours surrounding it. Sprinkle – with a light hand, edible heart candies around the table or decorate with cut out hearts that your guests can pick up and bring home.

3)   Floral arrangements

Are you surprised with this third one? Many people often underestimate the ability for floral decorations to fill up any empty spots on the dessert table and truly make it an elegant corner of the wedding, deserving of its own photoshoot.

But take a minute to picture a dessert table with cakes, cupcakes and mason jars filled with colourful candies – all accompanied with fresh blooms. Does that not put a smile on your face?

Fresh flowers will not only bring a cheer to your dessert table, it will also help make your wedding dessert table unique.

We hope these three short and quick tips help you with planning your wedding dessert table. But before we go, here are our last words – No matter what choices you make, follow your heart and we guarantee a memorable wedding and a blushing, content bride.” Rainbowly 2015.
