Modern Wedding Desserts & Wedding Cake Alternatives!

Like most elements of a wedding, couples are also giving wedding desserts a modern makeover!

Join as as we talk all things dessert and how you can find the perfect option for your wedding day plans! from styling the space, choosing design shapes and colours or even opting for a sweets free dessert!

Keep it simple

When it comes to planning your dessert choice, remember less is sometimes more! Adding simple touches like wedding florals or a beautifully styled space and a simple, modern cake design can create the ultimate wow factor without any effort!

Bonus tip!

Ask your florist if there is an option to repurpose your ceremony florals to create the perfect cake space. This can be super simple, cost effective but is sure to bring the wow.

Unique shapes & Colours

Love something a little different? Want to step away from the classic white and buttercream wedding cake? Why not get a little creative and play with some gorgeous shapes. Curve cakes are certainly making a splash on the wedding scene at the moment and we’re lovin’ it! The other option is to chat with your cake designer about tying in some pops of colour. We’ve been seeing some incredible, bold designs lately and trust us when we say, done right, these bold desserts can look modern and magical.

Try something different

Dessert cart

Who said dessert has to be at the very end of your celebration? Options like fairy floss carts and ice cream bars are the cutest way to bring something a little sweet to your cocktail hour!

Bonus tip! we love that this also encourages couples to join their guests during canape hour for a nibble, drink and intentional mingling time!
