    I have never been to a wedding that had dessert aside from the cake!  I don’t think it’s necessary.  Is this a Canadian thing?  I have noticed that on 4 Weddings Canada they always have dessert and they rarely do on the American version.

    @wisher558:  I love pie!  If I showed up at a wedding with a pie bar, I might literally break into a happy dance and kiss whoever was responsible for the buffet of the wonderous, crispy, salty, sweet, comforting piece of Americana clean on the mouth in front of King and country….

    I’m calling Mr. 99…pie needs to happen

    I would definitely want to include some dessert with dinner also. Is your cake going to feed everyone? Do you think your guests will drink much booze? I would probably go with a sundae bar because who doesnt LOVE ice cream, and I dont much care for pie (and know a few others who dont either)

    I do think thats a lot of food though. You’d be serving:
    Dinner
    Dessert
    Nacho/Taco Bar
    Cake

    depending on how long your reception is, this might be OK, but for a 4 hour reception thats probably too much. Most people here do a small dainty table, or cupcakes after dinner then just have a small cutting cake to cut later in the evening. Maybe your taco/nacho bar can be smaller since people likely wont eat as much if you have a dessert bar.

    @wisher558:  Wow! Thats a long time to hang out with your guests, I wish i had that much time! I think you might be OK then! If you can have 3 or so hours between dessert bar and taco/nacho bar, you should be just fine!
