7 Wedding Dessert Ideas

Love is sweet — especially at weddings! What with the wedding cake, dessert table and well-wishing reception, there’s plenty of sugar to go around.

Although the one traditional wedding cake is usually a must-have for any wedding, sometimes rules are meant to be broken (or bent just a teeny little bit). An additional dessert bar won’t only impress your guests, it will definitely complement your wedding!

Possibly the prime spot of the evening, a vibrant display of sweets, shakes and fried dough will leave more than enough for your hungry guests to feast on. End everyone’s night on a sweet note with these seven wedding dessert ideas!


Glazed, sprinkled or plain, dough not trust anyone who can’t (or worse, won’t) appreciate a good ol’ doughnut. Whether it’s a sweet arrangement that mirrors a tiered cake, these fried (or baked, if you want to be slightly healthy about it) are a great option if you’re looking for something that will hit that sweet spot!
