Hands down, I’d want the cheese plate. Dessert fanatics still get cake, and people who don’t like desserts have an option that might be more appealing to them.

I would absolutely choose the cheese.  It will let people who are low-carb/low sugar have a nice after dinner treat and give you some flavor variety as well.  A tart would just be more sweet on top of the other sweet.

But – full disclosure – I’m always going to choose cheese in any given situation.  If it comes down to sex or cheese, pass the Havarti.

I looooove dessert, but I have to agree with the others and say the cheese platter. A great option for people who may not want cake/that much cake.

I’m a cheese lover, but the one thing I love more than cheese is dark chocolate. I wonder if you might consider having a dark chocolate dessert for the dessert course, like a flourless chocolate cake, a dark chocolate mousse, or a molten lava cake. Those would be quite different than wedding cake!

Dessert choice for me.

What are the specific dessert options the caterer gave? If the choice was wedding cake and another type of cake….well that’s a lot of cake! But if they give other dessert options (there must be a list of choices), 2 desserts might work. I love cake/sweets, eating cheese after a meal wouldn’t be something I would choose. Also, what flavour is your wedding cake? And why does your fiancé get the final say?? I need more info 😂

amongclouds :  I’m torn because I frickin love cheese, but I also love dessert. Are you serving cheese as an appetizer? If you have a cheese board as an appetizer, I would probably pick a second non-cake dessert option. If you aren’t having cheese as an app, why the hell not  I’d go with the cheese.

I love cake.  But I also love cheese. 

Without seeing the actual dessert options, I would say with 90% certainty cheese plate.

Pretty much the only thing that would sway me is if the additional dessert option was creme brule or bananas foster.  But otherwise just another cake or tart that I can probably pick up at any bakery?  Pass.  I prefer things I am not inclined to do for myself at home or can pick up at my local bakery.
