It’s wedding planning season! Maybe its also time to consider one of 2018’s hottest trends: dessert buffets. Imagine it: cakes, cookies, puddings, cupcakes, and pastries all thoughtfully placed on a beautiful dessert table. People will come running to just have a little taste. A dessert buffet is a fantastic way to please guests when you’re trying to stretch money, too. There is something that will please everyone and you won’t need to get a big wedding cake.

Try finger-food desserts. This is easy for self serving. Just tell guests to grab a plate and walk on down the line. Add cookies, tiny pudding cups and single serve cakes to the mix. With this dessert buffet option there is a huge variety and guests can choose to eat as much or as little as they please. This is also a great option for guests who might be vegan or gluten free because you can simply add a few desserts to accommodate each person.
