It’s Wedding Wednesday and today I bring you wedding sweets and sips. These happen to be additional wedding areas where you can have some fun and share your personality. Have a favorite drink? Use it as your signature cocktail. You want lemon cake and he wants red velvet? Choose both and feature them in different ways.


Most people decide to have cake on their wedding day. Some are big and elaborate, while others are petite and full of flair. Here are some unique cakes that I’ve seen recently.

A fabulous cake made by Dyanna for a baby shower. Could also be a great concept for a groom’s cake.

If cake isn’t your thing, there are so many other options to choose from. You could do a dessert bar with a small cake to cut (keeping with tradition) and a variety of other desserts. Or you could opt for a pie bar with lots of pie choices (peach cobbler for example, not really a pie but definitely a good decision). An ice cream bar would also be a good and fun dessert choice. Below are some ideas for inspiration.

So at every wedding reception, there will be beverages, whether non-alcoholic or with spirits. When you are thinking about your wedding beverages, choose one or some that you like or coordinate with your theme/decor/colors.

Now I have to make the following statement… If you are serving alcohol at your wedding, your guests should not have to pay for it. They’ve traveled far and wide to share with you your special day and hopefully brought gifts. It’s the least you can do. If money is an issue, choose to serve wine and beer only. If you can afford to do a little more, add a signature cocktail or two to serve — one of your favorite drinks and the other, your fiancee’s favorite beverage.

I hope this provided you with some inspiration in helping you choose wedding sweets and sips. Or at least, I hope you found a new beverage you want to try.
