5 Delicious Dessert Towers to Display at Your Reception

Though wedding cakes are as popular as ever, dessert tables are all the rage as a way to complement the grand confection. Whether these displays are part of your favors or just an extra treat, an array of sweets is sure to delight your nearest and dearest.

But what if you want your dessert table to look as beautiful as the rest of your wedding? Simple plates and platters can look nice, but they lack the “wow” factor that so many couples want their soirée to invoke. That’s why we love the look of dessert towers! Confections piled high – either on each other or via a lovely stand – will attract almost as much attention as your actual wedding cake. Just be sure to have your photographer capture images ahead of time, because these towers really are good enough to eat!
