Open Bar (of sweets!)

10 September 2011

I can't decide whether moving away from the traditional wedding cake is sad or not. On one hand I love traditional and also cake but on the other the empty void of dessert allows couples to get creative which I LOVE. Dessert bars and funky presentation of non-traditional wedding treats has swept the wedding industry, I've noticed. Here, I've picked out a few of my favorites.

Monochromatic Color Scheme in Wedding Colors
Why do we choose wedding colors if all they are used for are flowers and little ribbons. Why not candy? Well a candy bar featuring "your color" M&M's, candy wrappers etc. in funky glassware or other containers just looks 

Smore's, Gooey, and Anything Chocolate
How could you not end the night with the most creamy and succulent treat, chocolate. Smore's bars are super trendy right now that extend beyond the traditional triad of ingredients. Coconut or flavored marshmallows are dipped in melted chocolate (dark, white, peppermint, etc.) and smushed between two cookies or the traditional graham crackers. Think of your guests dressed up to the nines and eating chewy gooey smores! Definite picture opportunity!

Things on Cake Stands
Imagine all of your childhood desserts together once again. Some brides and families bring treats for the wedding dessert such as "grandma's secret bunt cake recipe." Not only is this personal but I love the idea of placing said treats on adorable cake stands. I recently saw a post on that instructed one how to make a cake stand from a plate and old cocktail glass from thrift store. You can read more about it here

Ice Cream Bar
Who doesn't go crazy over ice cream on a hot day? Perfect for summer weddings, ice cream bars can be rented from places like Maggie Moo's in some states and locations but can be easily done via DIY. The trick is to keep the ice cream cold. Everything else is a breeze. No doubt that the children of all ages attending the wedding will go gaga!
