There’s nothing more celebratory than indulging in a delectable dessert after you’ve tied the knot. Although serving cake at your reception is a time-honored tradition, there are so many creative options for a summer wedding that will set your big day apart from the rest. Maybe you and your spouse are looking to swap the classic confection with something unexpected, or perhaps you’re looking to provide more variety by supplementing the star of the show with your favorite post-dinner treat. Either way, switching up your main dessert is an opportunity to honor the season, showcase your personality, and make a statement.
If you’re saying “I do” during the warmer months, you have an abundance of fresh produce available to enhance the flavor and presentation of your sugar fix. While options like strawberry shortcake and peach cobbler all incorporate ingredients grown during the season, you can also lean on the surrounding landscape to decorate your treats, such as donuts topped with pressed flowers. With frozen options, like a DIY ice cream sundae station, your guests will be able to withstand the summer heat. To recall fond memories of bonfires on the beach or summer carnivals, s’mores and cotton candy are other tasty and nostalgic candidates.
