    I would rather have the dessert buffet so I can pick my own cookies/chocolate.  And I think it’d be fun and cute!

    Adore Macarons, but I do agree with going the dessert bar route.  Not eveyone knows what macarons are, and may prefer more “familiar” desserts. Plus if there are any macarons left over, you can stash them in the freezer for yourself Wink.

    What are macarons?  They sound yummy!  I would enjoy a dessert bar with a variety of yummies, and your guests will have fun picking and choosing and creating their own little gift bags.  Awesome idea!

    The desert bar as not everyone likes macarons.

    Macarons (which is the actual name and differentiates them from macaroons which are the coconut cookies) are something people either love or hate.

    Favors are not required and people will not miss them if they are not there. On the other hand, I would never consider a dessert table to be favors since that is dessert which is typically served after the meal, and favors are something that are typically taken home and not consumed or used at the wedding. Either way, it’s a personal decision so no right or wrong. To answer your question, since you want to have favors, go with a regular dessert bar since that will please more people.

    i would choose more variety and let guests pick their own mainly b/c i don’t like macaroons and i don’t know many people who do…

    @Ms.MochaFreeze: I did Parisian macaroon favors and they were adorable if I do say so myself.  I did two cookies in my ‘colors’, in a cellophane bag, and attached a little Just Married tag with our names and the wedding date.  

    I voted both, if you can afford it.

    while i do like the idea of the buffet, i personally prefer something boxed that i can take home if i decide not to eat it there..
