A Wedding Dessert Bar Offers Endless Options for a Personal Touch
Few days are more important and more memorable than your wedding day. That is why so many people go to great lengths to create a wedding reception that is simply unforgettable. Long gone are the days when wedding had to conform to a specific set of traditions. Today, couples are free to design a wedding and reception that is in line with their specific tastes and ideals. The level of creativity that is seen in weddings across the nation is truly astounding. When it comes to serving food at your wedding, the team at PaNosh Catering would like to offer the following suggestions in the hopes of sparking your own creative fires.
Dessert Bar vs Traditional Wedding Cake
For generations of brides and grooms, there was little variation from the traditional wedding cake. Couples could spend a great deal of time and effort selecting just the right flavor and decorations, but the cake itself always took center stage and was usually the sole dessert item served at the reception. That is all well and good, and it is undeniable that some wedding cakes are works of art. But serving a wedding cake as the only sweet treat at your wedding leaves guests with no other options. That is why so many couples are choosing a dessert bar instead.
What is a Dessert Bar?
A dessert bar is a carefully selected and beautifully presented assortment of desserts, set up in a gorgeous display and available for guests to choose their sweet end to a sweet event. Couples can customize their dessert bar in any way that they choose. Some will go with an assortment of cupcakes, others may decide on donuts or cake pops. One way to incorporate tradition into a non-traditional dessert bar is by selecting treats that represent the heritage of the bride or groom. In short, a dessert bar offers couples a chance to put their own touch on one of the more memorable aspects of their wedding.
Does it Matter What is Served?
When it comes to choosing the items for a dessert bar, there are really no hard and fast rules. Most couples will select desserts that fit a certain theme, such as French pastries, Italian gelato, fruit pies or brownies. Some will mix dessert types, yet integrate a color or flavor theme into their dessert bar. It is also possible to customize the dessert bar by the decorative elements that are used to display the food items. Couples with a rustic theme may use simple wooden platters or Mason jars, while couples with a vintage flair might accent their dessert bar with hand-embroidered handkerchiefs and lace. Again, the only limit is the creativity of the couple who are at the center of the event.
