    @beeconomist:  If it’s in the budget, then I would offer an additional item to eat (whether it’s cupcakes, cake, cake pops, etc.). At our wedding, we will be having dessert (which comes part as our plate) as well as our wedding cake (and a sweet table, but that was also part of our plates.

    We had cake, a make your own sundae bar and a chocolate fountain.  Seriously, people are still talking about the desserts.  Nothing was ignored.  It was rocking !  People were taking the ice cream and dipping it into the fountain, cake and ice cream etc… It was delicious !

    I’d do something like cake or cupcakes as well!!  Most people will eat both.

    Nom, brownies! I love sweets so different desserts would be awesome IMO , but also not necessary.

    We had a dessert bar that eveyone went crazy over.

    A lot of weddings only serve one dessert (cake) though so anything goes! Do what you like and fits in your budget.

    @beeconomist:  I think if you don’t serve cake or something cake adjacent people will wonder where it is.  To me, people use the serving of cake a signal of the end of the formal portion of the night. After cake is served I take it as a sign I can start mingling, dancing, whatever.  Before the cake is served unless I’m specifically told to do otherwise, I stay in the seat you gave me.

    At ym first wedding, the catering package included dessert so we served an ice cream dessert right at the end of dinner. We cut our cake well into the evening. It was lovely. People were ready to eat something again by then after 2 hours of dancing and hanging out.

    @beeconomist:  We had an ice-cream truffle for dessert in a wafer bowl (have an amazing ice-cream place where I am from) and then we served wedding cake. We had the traditional fruit-cake for wedding cake (my mom baked it but we had someone else decorate it – my mom’s recipe is the only fruitcake I like) and we knew a few people wouldn’t like it but a lot of people had both, we did only cut the cake after the ice-cream though. Even the lactose intolerant amongst our group couldn’t resist the ice-cream but they aren’t highly affect by it

    Most people expect cake, not just to but to see you guys have your little photo moment feeding each other, which I think you’ll regret if you don’t have. Ice cream is more of a side dish desert, not a main, so it’s not that you’d be getting something to complement it, but instead you’d be getting the ice cream to complement the something else. So yes, definitely choose a primary desert that’s not ice cream!
