Let’s get real, the most delicious part of your wedding day are those sweet sweet bites of dessert after becoming Mr. and Mrs. The traditional concept of a large white wedding cake will always be a classic but more and more we are seeing brides and grooms opt for a smaller wedding cake and more of their favorite desserts to share with their friends and family. This includes donuts, fruit tarts, pies, homemade cookies, macaroons, and more! With this growing dessert bar concept, it’s giving couples an endless amount of options for that personal touch at the end of the night!


Starting off with my favorite dessert, the donut. From the maple bar to the jelly-filled and everything in between the donut is an underrated dessert. One of our 2019 Scribner Bend Wedding couples chose to do a smaller cake and a TON of donut options for their guests! Plus, how cool is their mirror dessert sign!?!

Pie and Cookie Bar

Macarons are the perfect sweet treat for easy enjoyment and the beautiful colors of the french cookie make it easy to coordinate with your wedding theme! This couple opted for 4 different flavors for their guests to enjoy after cutting the cake! Fruity Pebbles Macaron??? Uh. Yes, please!
