Not sure why my photographer didn’t get a FULL pic of our dessert bar *eyeroll* but we did have wedding cake, a chocolate groom’s cake, and a variety of desserts, most of which my mom & I made the day before the wedding. Not sure if you want to DIY it or get a bakery to do it but we made chocolate dipped peanut butter cookies, dipped oreo truffles, cake balls, chocolate chip cookies..I feel like there was a lot more but I can’t seem to remember. We also had some blue & white M&ms, and we ordered iced cookies that matched our cake. We also had some almond filled cookies & we bought a huge pack of these little cheesecake bites from Sams and those were great too!

We did mini pies. Half were struesel topped (apple) and half were mini hand pies (fruit – i think peach/raspberry or something). 

I think a brownie and cookie bar sounds amazing!

I don’t have pictures since I’m not married yet, but we’re doing 2 different fruit cobblers with ice cream. Our wedding is in a park in the middle of the day during summer and it has a picnic feel to it. So we figured cobbler with icecream would be a perfect dessert.

Not married yet, so no pictures, but we’re doing a cookie/cookie sandwich station. We’ll have an assortment of cookie flavors (everything from the traditional chocolate chip to more nontraditional flavors) along with ice cream for sandwiching! We may also do fruit as well, but are working out some kinks there.

Following because I’m also planning this. FH and I are deadset on cheesecake for ourselves and the cake we cut. Not sure if we’ll be able to afford cheesecake for everyone, so considering doing something else for guests.

queenbatgirl :  This is not our first marriage – so not going all traditional is easy for me.  We opted not to have a wedding cake at all, instead we are having our caterer serve a double desert after dinner – an Italian canoli aside a piece of lemon berry cheese cake.

We had a “cake” only one tier was real, the restwas very expensive foam 🙈

but we had a dessert table, and some ice cream cookies shaped like hearts and champagne “lollipops”

queenbatgirl :  Haven’t had my wedding yet but for our reception in the US, we are serving the wedding cake as the only dessert and nothing else (this is common in my area). For our reception in Europe, we will probably serve some kind of pudding in a glass right after dinner (they usually expect pudding there). Then much later into the night, we will cut and serve our wedding cake.
