How many guests will you have? I would plan to have 2-3 small desserts for each person so they can pick and choose. I think it will even out – some people will want one or none and other people (me) are like

No such thing as too much dessert! I’m having wedding cake, dessert station with mini desserts, fruit, and an ice cream float station. Since dessert is most important part of meal to me, I want to have a kick ass dessert selection. If it’s important to you, splurge and do it! We are going simpler on dinner and heavier with apps and desserts. If people don’t like it, I don’t care, it’s my wedding 🙂


Also, ice cream cake sounds amazing!!

@sherryberry:  How many guests do you have? Ice cream cake (especially in August) in a pain in the rear to serve because it melts so quickly. I would just make a small ice cream cake for your Fiance and serve similarly-decorated regular cake to your guests.

And as much as I love dessert, ice cream cake, cheesecake, tiramisu, and three types of pies seems like a lot. I would nix the pies.

Too much dessert? No such thing! That does seem like a lot, though, and I’d rather have actual cake than pie.

I looked at your title with confusion. Too much dessert? There can never be too much dessert! 🙂

Mmmmmm dessert.

It seems like a lot of options, but I know that my boyfriend and most of my family would happily wolf their way through that much food XD

Could you ask the caterers to switch out the cheesecake for pies? Then you could cut the icecream cake for photos.


But you can go for it all, why not! I would want to try everything, just maybe assume everyone will taste 2 desserts, so you don’t have bucketloads of leftovers.

@sherryberry:  There is no such thing, we are doing 5 different cakes, two may end up being cheesecake but we have enough for everyone to choose a few flavors and enjoy what they like. We are even making some gluten, lactose and vegan free/friendly.
