Most couples these days are opting to have other desserts at their reception in addition to or in lieu of a wedding cake. Why? Because it also doubles as a favor! Consider displaying different kinds of cupcake flavors and icings, but make sure to label (in case some guests have food allergies) and top with fun flags that say, “I do.” See more ideas in our photo gallery here.

When picking out desserts for your dessert table, consider the season ripe with fresh produce from May to late September. Here are five mouthwatering ways to serve them:

1. Mixed Berries Chiffon Cake - From strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries and cherries, they all have one thing in common — they’re rich in antioxidants.

2. Homemade Peach Cobbler – In order to select the perfect Georgia peaches for your pies, look for firmness and a lack of blemishes (wrinkles or bruising). You’ll know they’re ripe by the smell alone.

3. Raspberry Lemon Cupcakes - Ask your baker to add a splash of citrusy lemon to the cupcake batter. It just might boost your guests’ electrolytes to keep them dancing all night long.

4. Ice Cream - As long as you can keep it frozen, your guests will love feeling refreshed after eating this ice “cream” cold treat. Provide toppings such as: crushed oreos or pistachios, rainbow sprinkles and shredded coconut. Don’t forget the syrups!

5. Banana Pudding - Spice up traditional vanilla pudding with layers of wafers and sliced bananas in a glass shooter.

Posted by Caitlin on Dec 18, 2012

In case you haven’t heard, Pantone recently announced that emerald is the color of 2013, which means couples will be searching for their “something emerald” instead of their “something blue.” Here are three ways to incorporate a green color scheme into any upcoming wedding:

1. Table Decor: Place emerald accents throughout the tables in your glassware, menus or plate settings.

There’s nothing more creative and simple than incorporating a floral design into your wedding cake. Traditionally, wedding cakes were adorned with fresh flowers, but nowadays, couples are also adorning their cake with silk flowers instead. As long as you choose a floral design that accents your wedding theme, it’s bound to look beautiful. Are you using fresh flowers or silk flowers? Let us know in the comments below.
