Wedding traditions are becoming a thing of the past. While certain traditions may never die, others are being replaced by activities and personal touches that are tailored toward the couple.

Wow your guests with something unique on your big day. Here are some ideas to get you started:

Milk and Cookies

Nothing beats the cookie-cutter cake quite like a stack of cookies and a glass of milk. The cookies will satisfy each guests’ sweet tooth while the glass of milk gives them a refreshing boost into the night’s festivities.


Because who doesn’t love fried dough and sweet frosting? Choose doughnuts decorated with your wedding color palette to make an adorably delicious centerpiece at each table. Guests will have a hard time mustering up the willpower to save them until after dinner.

Ice Cream Sundaes

Receptions spaces get sweltering hot as the night goes on and the dancing starts. Cool down your guests with a refreshing ice cream sundae. You can even create a sundae bar for guests to make their own and choose their toppings!


Celebrate with pie in a seasonal fruit of choice or the always-in-season chocolate! It’s sure to be a hit with your guests.


No trend is as delicious as a good macaron. A gorgeous, stacked macaron ‘cake’ in your wedding’s color palette will make cute décor in addition to being a delicious dessert for guests.


A tall stack of flapjacks is the perfect sweet snack after the wedding dinner. Drizzle in maple syrup, chocolate, fruit, and more!


Milkshakes are refreshing, sweet, and satisfying: just what your guests will be looking for after a filling meal. Get them ready for a long night of dancing with a light dessert.

Dessert Bars

Choose your favorite dessert bars – from brownies, peanut butter bars, cookies, special k bars, and more. Make it a variety stack so each guest gets exactly the treat they’re craving.


Dessert pastries are the perfect compromise between carbs and sugar. From cannolis to croissants, channel that corner bakery vibe with a delectable selection of pastries for your guests.


Have you ever had churros as a wedding dessert before? We’re guessing your answer is probably no, making this the best dessert to knock the socks off your guests!

Why stick to the tradition of dessert though? There are many scrumptious foods that make a perfect post-wedding dinner snack. Consider one of these more unexpected options:

Cheese ‘Cake’

Yes, we mean real cheese. Surprise your guests with towering blocks of cheese to be served with crackers and meat.

Pizza ‘Pie’

Not interested in having just cheese? Try adding some sauce and crust. Tiers of pan crust pizza are sure to make your guests more excited when dessert time rolls around.

Concession Snacks

Include popcorn, peanuts, hot dogs, fries, candy bars, and more. Set a fun mood for the night with a concession snacks table that your guests can keep coming back to.
