According to the Bridal Association of America, catering costs $14,179 -- and that's just an  average! If you're a bride on a budget, this simply isn't workable. Do you forgo the wedding reception altogether? Of course not! Instead of hosting a full meal at the reception, join in on today's hottest reception trend, the dessert buffet. Try this idea for an elegant, delicious solution to hefty catering costs and hungry stomachs!

So What Exactly is a Dessert Buffet?

It looks exactly how it sounds -- a buffet of desserts. Couples today are eschewing the typical five course meal for a stylish, delicious dessert buffet, keeping every guest's hunger at bay. Along with being unique, delicious, and stylish, it saves you around $6,000 on catering,  depending on the guest count. Here are the basics of a dessert buffet:

~ An array of desserts, ranging from cupcakes, cookies, petit fours, cake pops, brownie pops – just to name a few - all displayed in a gorgeous buffet. What makes our display unique? The buffet is completely coordinated in the color(s) of your choice, including our elegant linens and serving pieces. We bring a “wow” factor to your wedding, both through the visual aesthetic, as well as through our decadent desserts. Candy can be added as a separate station.

~ The wedding cake can be set in the middle of the buffet or as a separate display.

~ Plates & napkins are provided for easy self service. All desserts are presented in matching liners as well.

~ S ‘mores, old fashioned lemonade, hot cocoa, sundaes, cookies, caramel apples, popcorn, cotton candy, Italian soda stations, etc., can be added separately. (see "Sweet Ideas")
