A “Sweet” Alternative | Wedding “Desserts” Ideas | On The Menu

 If chocolate covered strawberries and mini eclairs aren’t your thing, we’ve come up with a genius list of alternatives for your wedding “Desserts.”

1. You had me at Cheese!
A Cheese course with fruit, marmalade, and figs? This is truly genius. The dessert is normally served while the party is still in high gear. Cocktails are being served and the vibe is most certainly not a cake and coffee one. Place a small cheese plate on each table. Include Macon walnuts, figs and other fruit and it’s a win.

2. Of course, we’re going to mention Doughnuts!
Creme Brulee Doughnuts to be exact! If you’re lucky enough to be in the NY area you can hit up Doughnut Plant for these one of a kind, out of this world specialties. Lucky for you, they also ship! If you’re on the US West Coast you can check out Astro Doughnuts.
Don’t forget to inquire with local farms in the Fall for cider doughnuts.

3. Gourmet Popcorn! 
You can satisfy sweet and savory cravings with flavors like Salt and vinegar, chocolate, windy city mix, and coconut caramel, try Brooklyn Popcorn for some of these and many other flavors.  Place a bowl on each table and some near the bar, it will keep the night festive and fun.
(BONUS: They offer free shipping on orders $75 or more)

 4. Straight up Chocolate!
Dark Chocolate, Coffee Chocolate, Chocolate Almond Bark, Coconut Chocolate… I’ll stop here. A great option especially if you’re having a winery wedding is to pair the chocolates with wine. Your guests will adore you! Offer up small bags for those that want to take some home.
5. Marshmallows!
Gourmet marshmallows with flavors like Italian Stracciatella, Bacon Bourbon sutra, and espresso addict, you can’t miss. TIP: Don’t let anyone try and suggest a Chocolate fountain. Try Viveltre  (They Ship)  

 6. Cotton Candy!
How Fun!!! Just simple, delicious cotton candy on a stick. The great news is that there are many companies across the world that produce Cotton Candy. Just do a little google search and you’ll find someone fairly close.

7. Ice Cream… Boozy Ice Cream!
With companies like Tipsy Scoop, I mean what are you waiting for? Some of their classic flavors are Red Velvet Martini, Vanilla Bean Bourbon, and Cake Batter Vodka Martini. We are literally drooling right now.
