8 Unique Displays for Your Reception Desserts

What’s better than something sweet at the end of the night? Nothing! Topping off your reception or after-party with some delectable desserts is the perfect way to close your nuptials and send your guests home feeling all warm and fuzzy inside. After you’ve selected your cake flavor(s) and design, as well as any additional treats such as cookies, cupcakes, macarons, and more, the question then turns into: “How will we present these snacks to our friends and family?” If you decide on arranging your fare at your venue, you’re likely looking for a set-up that fits your wedding’s carefully crafted motif.

Dessert displays can range from sweet and simple to the unique focal point of the evening. Trying to make this element of your celebration really pop? We’ve curated a few examples from real weddings and styled shoots to help inspire a contemporary concept for your cakes and other sweets. See the photos below, and be sure to click on each picture for more ideas from that event!
