Dessert options for weddings

I was born with the curse of an extreme sweet tooth, so desserts are one of my favorite things! A few years ago when going to a wedding you knew the dessert would be cake, but times have changed. Now when heading to a reception you never know what sweet treats may be waiting for you!

There are so many tasty options to go with the wedding theme or to compliment the bride and grooms specific tastes. Candy bars are very popular; they are a great way to show off your colors and theme. You can also provide take home bags for guest to fill up as a wedding favor.

Cupcakes are always fun and there are so many things that you can decorate them with. Cupcakes are great if you want to have a large variety of flavors.

Cake pops are one of the newer trends, another great way to offer all different kind of flavors. They are easy to eat so they are perfect for outside weddings. Another great dessert option for an outside weddings is pie. Pies are the perfect thing for barn and farmers market weddings. They are great for fall weddings when everyone is craving pumpkin and apple pies.

If your wedding is outside in the summer a perfect way to cool off is an ice cream sundae bar. Offering different ice cream flavors and all different toppings is a fun way for guests to make their own favorite. It can also be a less expensive dessert option. Another great way to incorporate ice cream is to hire an ice cream truck to come to your venue – guests will love the nostalgic feelings of hearing that iconic song coming from the truck and getting to pick their beloved childhood treat.

For a more colorful option, macarons are the perfect thing. Macarons are adorable and come in all different flavors. They are a cute little dessert that are easy to eat and serving them is a breeze because no cutting is involved.

Cookie stations are so fun and a great choice for a wedding that has kids in attendance. You can offer all different types of cookies and also a cookie decoration station with frosting and toppings that can be a fun activity.

Every wedding is unique and different dessert options are a great way for couples to show off there tastes!

Frozen Inspired Wedding

Grab a cup of hot chocolate and enjoy! Frozen has taken over, even if you haven’t seen the movie you have heard the song, Let it Go!  Since winter is here I thought it would be appropriate for a snow inspired wedding.

Secret Garden Wedding

When I think back to my childhood one of my favorite movies was The Secret Garden. As a little girl the thoughts of having a secret place filled with copious amounts of beautiful flowers and a hidden gate where only I had a key to enter was a thing of my imagination.

The best thing about a secret garden themed wedding is that you can have it indoors or outdoors. Indoor spaces can be completely transformed with the help of a great florist to capture your vision.

Outdoor spaces are ideal because you can take all the elements that are already there such as trees, and add twinkle lights or hang lanterns from them.

When guests enter they will all receive a skeleton key with their escort card where they will be directed to enter through the large iron gates.  Once they enter they will be transported into a gorgeous space where all the elements of nature are on display.

With simple colors of soft pinks and greens, the beauty of your wedding will not soon be forgotten. It also would not be a true secret garden wedding without a wooden swing, which would make the perfect photo opportunity. If this sounds like the wedding of your dreams we would love to help you make it come true.

Pantone Color of the Year: Marsala Inspiration Board

Pantone has announced that the color of the year for 2015 is Marsala. It’s a rich red tone that is complimented by gold, ivory, and similar reds in different hues. A lot of our Indian wedding’s have been using this color for years but I have a feeling that this color will be seen in a lot of weddings coming up because of how complimentary this color is!  Here is a little inspiration board that we have come up with.

 

 

Happy Hanukkah!

If you choose to have your wedding day during the 8 days of Hanukkah, what’s a better way to celebrate than having a Hanukkah themed wedding?!

Wow your guests with a beautifully decorated chuppa adorned with Hanukkahs’ signature colors of white, silver and blue. A perfect favor and fun activity for all the kids at your wedding can be a dreidel. With the bride and grooms initials on the top, it is a perfect keepsake for all the guests to take home.

You can also include the history of the dreidel and the song so everyone can sing along. The food of course would have to include some of the traditional goodies like latkes (potato pancakes) and for dessert, sufganiot (doughnuts)!

A candy bar is also a fun idea, with all different blue, silver, and white treats and of course chocolate coins to stick with the theme. If this sounds like the perfect day for you, we would love to help you!
