Dessert bars tend to just be a table maybe two with a few different options. Vienesse hours tend to be MASSIVE. With every single type of dessert and sweet you can think of.

I think my mom wants me to have this. I thought they were things like pizza or sandwiches, not desserts.

The Viennese hour/table is a massive selection of desserts.  Typically they are also “attended” meaning someone is there helping serve or even making desserts to order (like a bananas foster or something requiring kitchen staff).  It will have far more options than any one person can sample.

This is extremely popular where I grew up and in the general NY/NJ area.  It is such a huge amount of dessert that lots of people who didn’t grow up with them see them as wasteful, because it is meant to be so decadent it doesn’t run out of food at the end of the night.  I’ve seen them as small as a few table lengths, and as long as the entire wall of the venue.

You can’t lose with either – depending on your budget.  If you do opt for a dessert “table” or dessert “bar” do have fun wrapped jarred candy and provide cello bags and scoops so that could be an additional favor for your guests to take home.  Unwrapped candies like old fashioned candy sticks, lollipops, mary janes, peppermints, miniature hershey bars, etc.   Add jelly beans that match your wedding colors, M&M’s, Jordan almonds, small cookies and animal crackers, wafer cookies, mini licorice and candy coated nuts.  make your table or bar colorful by adding brightly colored balloons, table cloth, napkins, ribbons to jars, trim in tissue and any fun, decorative item.  You can also put a banner on wall that has a cute message like “Sweets for our sweetest friends and family” with a picture of you eating cotton candy or something like that.  You can, of course, add mini danish, cupcakes and other goodies (as well as cakes and pies with slicers) to the mix.  Yummy!
