What is a luxury dessert table?

You can choose to have a dessert table in place of the traditional wedding cake, with a larger item like a chocolate fountain and fresh fruit as the centrepiece in place of the cake. If you prefer to have a traditional wedding cake, you can make it the centre of attention on your dessert table.

A luxury dessert table remains on display for the whole of the evening, so that guests can serve themselves when they wish, and can sample different delicious treats. You can also leave paper bags on the dessert tables so that guests can fill them to take home, a good alternative to gifts for your guests.

Tips: Be careful, it is important to have a good estimation of the number of guests who will be present.

Wedding dessert bar ideas

You can personalise your dessert tables according to your tastes, or in keeping with your luxury wedding theme. Choosing dessert for wedding themes might include desserts that were popular in the 1920’s for a Great Gatsby wedding for example, neon coloured jellies for a sci-fi celebration, or colourful fruits in a treasure chest for a beach wedding.

Your wedding dessert table should be beautifully decorated, and you can choose fine china and silverware in keeping with the colours of your decor or flowers. You may also use floral arrangements or beautiful pieces of fruit to decorate your dessert tables.
