1). Stacks of Pancakes

From canapés to cakes, brides everywhere are loving this non-traditional wedding trend. Replace your wedding cake with a fun stack of sugary pancakes and let your guests enjoy some mini pancakes on a stick. Now this is a dessert idea we can get behind! 


2). Delicious Cheesecake Pots

For guests who don’t want a chocolatey wedding dessert, cheesecake is a brilliant alternative. These mini cheesecake pots are a great way to give your guests something sweet at the end of the wedding breakfast without leaving them bloated and too full. Don’t forget to top them with some sugar-dusted berries for decoration!

3). Gooey Chocolate Brownies

Brownies are an unconventional choice of wedding dessert, but recently they’ve been getting a lot of attention on Pinterest and Instagram from brides looking for something a bit different to serve their guests. If you’re worried about risking a chocolate stain on your dress, why not opt for white chocolate brownies instead?

4). Magnificent Macaroon Towers

This idea is definitely one of our favourites! Switch your wedding cake for one of these beautiful macaroon towers and let your guests help themselves. For the most photogenic macaroon towers, go for light, pastel shades.

5). Ice Cream!

Everybody loves ice cream, so why not serve it as your wedding dessert? Either keep it simple with classic vanilla, or try something a bit fancier with pistachio or lavender. If you’re absolutely crazy about ice cream, you could hire an ice cream van for the day. Note: for couples having a summer wedding, be careful of melting!
