Y’all are so helpful I have to ask another question. 😉
We’re having the bride’s cake, foregoing the groom’s cake and having a sweets table with 4 mini desserts and a few different types of candy.
We are inviting 100 people. I expect 80 to 85 to actually attend.
Do I need to count on at least one of each dessert per person, or do you think having 60 or so of each one will be plenty? I don’t know if everyone is going to want one of each thing or it will be a pick and choose situation. Especially since there WILL be enough wedding cake for all the guests.

I’m no help, but I’d love to see the answer to this 🙂

@dittobelle: I think 60 is perfectly fine considering not everyone will want sweets in addition to your wedding cake.

What are you planning on having?
I would honestly only do about 50 of each kind, and have some take-home boxes on hand for any leftovers.
I’m assuming you’re doing dinner though. If you aren’t doing dinner then I would have more desserts on hand.

@jenilynevette: We keep changing our minds on what to offer, but so far we are going with mini red velvet cupcakes, mini chocolate tarts, lemon squares, and a mini parfait of some type… either tiramisu or a raspberry trifle.
We are definitely feeding everyone in addition to the desserts.

@dittobelle: I would say 50 of each kind then. That’s that’s enough for most guests to have 2, and some guests to have 3. With dinner and cake, that’s PLENTY. You can always offer so cheaper options like cookies as well as a filler.

I’m so glad to hear everyone say that! 🙂
