SIL and I are getting married a month apart, and I’m almost certain she will be having a candy buffet at her wedding. I originally wanted to do that, but since we will be having 75% the same guests, and my wedding is after hers, I wanna do something different… any ideas? I’ve heard of the popcorn buffet, smores buffet, sundae station… anybody have other suggestions?

Im doing desserts: a cake, cupcakes (regular and mini sized), mini pies, mini tarts, chocolate covered strawberries, three types of parfaits, ferrero rocher and white chocolate lindt candies, as well as gourmet truffles! I know its “similar” to a candy buffet, but I like to think of it as a candy buffet on steroids! 😛 I am only having 60 guests, so I am sure there will be more than enough leftover and I am A-OK with that! 🙂

We are doing 3 stations a bakery station with German chocolate cake,coconut cake,carrot cake, red velvet cake,Key Lime pie, walnut brownies, also are also having a ice cream sundae station and a s’more station. I was thinking about a candy bar when we first started planning, but I do believe it is a bit overdone. if you really wanted to do sweets you could do like a doughnuts and coffee station or the spiked milk shooter and cookies.

Could you have a chocolate and wine tasting station? You could purchase a few different wines, supply small glasses for tasting and purchase a bunch of nice chocolate + fruit for people that don’t eat chocolate – yes, we do exist 🙂

It’s not dessert-related, but mashed potato bars are super yummy!

have a chocolate liqueur bar. I went to a wedding with this and it was delicious and unique. After cake was served, they had little chocolate cups and a variety of liqeuers to pour into them that you basically take as a shot and eat the chocolate with.

There’s a place near where we are getting married that specializes in cupcake bars! So basically you can pick a few flavors of cupcakes, frostings, and a TON of candy/fruit toppings, and they will set it up for you and your guests can customize and decorate their own cupcakes! It sounds like a really fun idea and one that you can probably replicate on your own fairly easily without hiring another vendor for it. My fiance and I are doing something similar with an ice cream sundae bar.
