Say goodbye to the days when the wedding cake was the only dessert served at a wedding! These days brides are treating their guests to all types of delicious goodies either during the cocktail hour, reception or as a late night snack.  You can choose to create a candy or dessert bar  filled with sweet treats or choose one main dessert to give your guests.  Either way, these mini delicious surprises are always a welcome treat!  Here are five desserts that are not only unique but will leave a lasting impression on your guests!

The Yummiest Late Night Snacks for your Wedding!

If you don’t know yet, one of the hottest trends in 2012 and 2013 are late night snacks!  These tiny bites of goodness usually served towards the end of your wedding make the perfect snack after a long night of partying and celebrating. The more unique the snack, the more impact it can make.  Most guests aren’t expecting any more food for the evening so this little sweet or savory treat can be a great unexpected surprise!

Some of my favorite late night snacks are ones that the bride and groom enjoy!  If you love hamburgers or hotdogs, try serving mini versions.  I love how one bride packed these up in a “to go” box for the guests to take home!

Guests love comfort food!  You can even choose to pass out small small containers of french fries or have a french fry bar!  This would go great with the mini hot dogs or sliders!

If you or your groom prefer sweets, serve your guests doughnuts, milk and cookies, or my favorite from Glendalough Manor is the homemade assorted mini milkshakes.  Delicious!

Food Trucks at Weddings!

Food trucks are one of the hottest wedding trends emerging in 2012!! From gourmet cupcakes to BBQ and burgers you can find almost any kind of food truck to be at your wedding.

There are many reasons to opt for a food truck at your wedding.  The first reason may be cost.  Most food trucks are less expensive than traditional wedding caterers.  Also, food trucks are usually more eco friendly by using fresh ingredients and making less mess by using paper products.

Another reason to have a food truck would have to be the awesome pictures you can get!

Some brides and grooms instead of a traditional receiving line are serving up tasty treats from the food truck as a way to welcome everyone to the wedding!

Lastly, I like food trucks because it is unique and sets your wedding apart from any other. How surprised would your guests be as they depart to see an ice cream truck waiting to hand out their choice of dessert as they leave?!?  Or grab mini appetizers from food trucks during the cocktail hour?

I know this trend is not for every wedding but there are ways to incorporate food trucks and still have a traditional catered meal for dinner.

If you live in the Atlanta area, a new food truck park has just opened and includes at least 15 different food trucks at one time giving you the opportunity to taste from several different food trucks and find the one perfect for your wedding.  The Atlanta Food Truck Park is open for lunch and dinner 7 days a week offering live music and even a weekend farmers and art market!

What are your thoughts on food trucks?  We want to know!

Happy Planning!
