Not at all! I see a lot of weddings that do it.  At the wedding I was in last year they had this, and the sweets table was totally cleared out long before the cake was cut.

 

Yum!

I think it’s fine.  The last wedding I went to had both and the sweets table was pretty much emptied before they even cut the cake, so I appreciated both since I didn’t get anything from the table.

No, that’s not too much at all. I think many of your guests would enjoy cake and sweets, especially yummy italian ones.

@SnowInApril:  not at all!!! I don’t like cake so I would be happy to see a sweets table. Our venue includes a wedding cake and a sweets table so it’s not uncommon 🙂

@SnowInApril:  We did a wedding cake and a sweet n salty buffet and everyone loved it.  I think the key with the sweets table is to give your guests a to-go option (i.e. little bags or boxes).

LOL I’m Italian so I know alllll about the Italian cookie tradition.  I’m having 2 cakes, a whole table full of just cookies, AND a candy buffet (which is doubling as the “favor”).  So of course I don’t think it’s too much. Smile

No way!  We are doing that too but with cupcakes. To save money we opted to buy less cupcakes which will just be added to the sweet table instead of formally served.  I want everyone to have room for the sweet table which I think will be more delicious than the cake (neither me nor my fiance are huge cake people).  I think it is fine to serve both, but if budget is a concern, you could always get a smaller cake and have the venue slice it up and put plates of the cake with the rest of your sweet table.  That way people who love wedding cake can have it, but people who prefer other desserts can stock up on them instead
