    We did both (sort of – I had an alternative wedding cake). The dessert bar was VERY popular and we had compliments on it from just about everyone. It’s nice because you can really cater to everyone in a dessert bar but you can only do so many flavors of cake.

    My recommendations:

    – Make the serving sizes in the dessert bar super small. People prefer variety over sheer quantity. If you go to high end buffets, the serving portions are generally small (a few bites).

    – Incorporate a lot of variety. We had fresh fruit for the healthy/older folks, rich chocolate-y desserts (e.g. flourless chocolate cake), non-chocolate (e.g. creme brulee) and whimsical/fun (e.g. cakepops).

    – Make the display pretty. Too often, with candy and dessert bars, people forget that this is a photo opp.

    I would rather have cake.  Especially if you’re going to have a ceremonial cake cutting with what looks like a big traditional wedding cake, I would find it odd if the cake were wheeled away and never made available to the guests.

    Not a huge deal or anything, but I like cake and I always look forward to it at a wedding!
