Desserts could possibly be our favorite part of the wedding day!! With all the new fun options out there, it makes dessert time even more exciting! The options are endless…pies, cupcakes, smores bar, truffles, cheese cakes, torts, macaroons, candy bars, ice cream sunday buffet, donuts, chocolates, sweet things in min cups, misc tasty treats on sticks… all such great ideas and a fun way to customize your wedding.
** Rustic Elegance planning tip: If you are ordering a variety of desserts, make sure you order enough-just in case guests end up grabbing more then one. Here are a few of our favorite dessert vendors:
Nadia Cakes was featured on season one and two of TLC’s show Fabulous Cakes. They have a wide range of of fun cupcake flavors and options, including Cookies & Cream, Lemon Drop, Peanut Butter Cup, Salted Carmel.. but my fav is the Vanilla Vanilla.. LOVE the frosting!! (my mouth is watering writing this)!!
Sara’s Tipsy Pies is also a unique option vrs a traditional wedding cake. Sara has partnered with local wine, whiskey and beer vendors such as: 2 Gingers, Liftbridge, Saint Croix Vineyards, Finnegans, Third Street Brewhouse, Winehaven…etc to add a little twist to her: mini tipsy pies, pie pals, hand pies, cookies, cupcakes and cheesecakes. I love the pecan hand pie and also the french silk mini dessert. Yummy!!! Ya can’t go wrong with pies at a rustic wedding!
Campfire Desserts offers a traveling S’more’s Bar which includes 9 different flavored artisan marshmallows, a variety of different graham crackers, chocolates, and candy bars! They also bring along a Roast Counselor to give suggestions on how to make the perfect S’more!!! I must say I’m a sucker for a S’more using Reese’s Pieces!!
Ganache Desserts and Confections offers a wide selection of dessert options, including: wedding cakes, cupcakes, truffles, international desserts and confections! Chef Kevin Lindee is outstanding! He creates “distinctive flavor profiles and contemporary combinations while infusing modern techniques in every tantalizing treat”. We highly recommend him!
Another fun idea is to have an ice cream bar!! This Little Piggy Catering can help provide this! (ooo add a chocolate chip cookie on the side)!!! Their ice cream bar includes: Delicious Bridgeman’s Ice Cream, peanuts, strawberries, cherries, M&M’S, Reeces, Oreos, sprinkles, warm hot fudge, and warm caramel. They also offer a 1919 keg of Root Beer for floats as well.
This Little Piggy Catering also offers a crepe Station, featuring a Nuetella, Caramel, Banana, Cinnamon twist, Lemon Supreme, Strawberry, Banana Strawberry Supreme, and Chocolate. This is a great alternative for a fun dessert. It also allows your guest to order just what they like!
I haven’t seen it yet, but I think cotton candy would be a fun idea…ooo or caramel apples..?? Below are some fun ideas from real weddings!
