Is it possible to have too many types of deserts at reception?

Probably too many options. I find if there are too many options, people get overwhelmed. Plus there is usually dessert left after a wedding anyway. I would eliminate one of the options. I’d probably choose those beautiful desserts over a candy bar!

Personally, I love sweets too. Actually,I just love food. 

So I commend you in your abundant selection of delicacies.

I don’t think there is such a thing as too many desserts!

If you cut a cake you should provide cake for your guests. So if you want to take away cake from your guests, just dont cut it. 

That said, I dont think you can go wrong with lots of dessert. I would be wary of using your co-worker as a vendor. If something goes wrong that could be suuuper awkward at work.

I feel like dessert buffets sometimes get carried away and verge into the casino buffet territory. 

And do people really eat jello? I’ve never met anyone who actually liked it.

Personally I operate from the standpoint that you should do what you love.  Just know that when there are a lot of choices there can also be a lot of waste as people sample different things.  I would expect to see that with the jello.  It looks like something that will have wow factor and that people will want to try out of curiosity but frankly probably won’t be that good.

bluesky355 :  I’m also of the belief that there can never be too many dessert options! Not only because I have a sweet tooth, but because my husband and I are lactose intolerant so sometimes the quirky options we’ve encountered (cheesecake, sundaes) don’t work for us. And besides, have you been to an Italian wedding? The cookies and breads have their own table lol My mother-in-law baked non-stop leading up to my SIL’s wedding 🙂

If I see an awesome dresset bar, I’m hitting it hard. 

I had two cakes, 3 kinds of cookies, 3 kinds of cake pops and two kinds of brownies. I had cake left over, I didn’t even get to try the rest. Our guests ate them all!

The words “too many” and “desserts” never belong in the same sentence. I doubt people will be overwhelmed by just cake, jello, and pastries. I wouldn’t really count the candies as a dessert, they are more like a favor. I say go for it!
