@Cluelessbride10:  Are you also having cake?

 

After dinner and cake we offered hot cocoa (along with the bar items and pop, winter wedding) and cookies.  The cookies were a big hit!  And we still got to take SEVERAL home, I think the venue overestimated the amount we’d need but the price was still good.  Icecream could only make it better!  In my DH’s family there are several kids that are lactose intolerant, but they still eat ice cream they just have to take a pill before?  IDK how many would eat sorbet…

This sounds delicious!! I would definitely do it!

Sorbet isn’t necessary, unless you know that a lot of your guests are lactose intolerant. If there are only a few, they can just eat the cookies and skip the milk. But, if your budget can afford it, it doesn’t hurt to have more options. I’m in the camp that believes you should have way more than enough food, and the more options the better.

@Cluelessbride10:  I think it’s awesome, we did the cookies in place of a midnight snack so I understand that line of thought!

@Cluelessbride10:  

As someone who is lactose intolerance- if you don’t have the money to add all that sorbet- I’d be SO happy if you could just buy a few cartons of lactaid milk (maybe 1-2 gallons?) so that I could dip my cookies in milk with everyone else! I don’t think I necessarily have to have sorbet 😀

I do know that some people who are lactose intolerant do not like Lactaid milk but I personally think it tastes exactly the same as skim milk (as I drank that growing up… before starting to get all the horrible side effects!

I absolutely LOVE that idea!  So sweet! MY FI isn’t a cake person, so we’re thinking about having cheesecake instead since we both love that 🙂

Love your idea for the sweets table … and the fact that it reflects your fiance, even better!  Which leads me to my next point … you do not need to cater to ALL dietary limitaions.  People with food allergies, or limitations, are very used to having to pass up certain things at events or at restaurants.  You can NOT please everyone.  

I agree with your statement about finding that most sweets tables go untouched.  I decided to scale WAY back on my sweets table and make it a “Kids Only” offering, with a height stick (like at at the amusement parks) to communicate that it is for the kids only.  The adults will get plenty of sweets … cake and cupcakes.  The kids will get the sweets buffet.

Uh, I think that’s a freaking awesome idea!
If it were me, I’d say, “mom, we don’t have money for it though.” <that usually gets my mom to pay for things she tries to force me to include in my wedding. 😀
