If you have a wedding coming up and want everyone to have a great time, make sure that you offer desserts that stand apart from the rest. While some people only offer cake at their weddings, you will have a variety of tasty and unique treats that and your guests will love. Some people are worried that they won’t be able to make these desserts. Even if you are not the best cook, you should have no trouble putting these treats together. In no time, you can prepare items that grab attention and make people smile, and adds a special touch to your wedding. If you don’t want to prepare these items yourself, try using a corporate catering service or a private chef. The four desserts from this guide will not only do the job, but will have your guests coming back for more!

Waffle Sundaes

When you want great dessert ideas that are easy to make, waffle sundaes are an option you won’t want to overlook. If you have a waffle maker, prepare some of your favorite waffles when you are ready to begin. You can then add any sundae toppings that come to mind, such as hot fudge, caramel, or whipped cream. Some people prepare all the sundaes in advance and put them in a cooler, which works well. To improve your results, you should make the waffles fresh and use an ice cream machine at your wedding. You can even go in a self-serve approach and place the toppings on a tray so that people can get the ones they want.

Pies on a Stick

Making pies on a stick gives you a fantastic treat everyone will enjoy. A bonus is that they are not difficult to prepare. Instead of placing the ingredients in a pie pan, place them in a cookie sheet with a stick, and you will be off to a great start. Use a combination of your favorite pie fillings to create small samples all of the guests can try. Strawberry, blueberry, and apple are classic flavors you should consider using, but you can also experiment with other flavors, such as peanut butter or chocolate. If you know some of your guests have a favorite flavor, surprise them by adding it to your tray.


S’mores are another classic treat that adds a nice touch to any wedding, and you can prepare them in under 10 minutes! You must heat the oven and grab your cookie tray when you are ready to begin. Next, place the graham crackers on the bottom of the tray before adding the marshmallows and chocolate bars. Place the other graham cracker on top to complete the process and place the tray in the oven for two to three minutes. You can then remove the tray and serve your s’mores. Your guests will thank you for this delectable treat!


While you can create a variety of tasty treats your guests will love, don’t underestimate the power of easy classics. Doughnuts will make a great addition to your wedding dessert list. You may want to pick a variety of flavors so that you can appeal to most of your guests. Powdered, jelly, and chocolate are just a few types your guests are sure to enjoy.

Final Thoughts

The desserts you have learned to prepare will take your wedding to a whole new level and give your guests another thing to remember. If you have never made any of these treats, make a batch before your wedding to ensure that you get it right. Give yourself enough time to practice more than once if needed. This will allow you to make the perfect batch on your special day. For additional ideas, let your guests offer dessert suggestions on their RSVP. Some people prefer adding an extra touch to their wedding by hiring a personal chef service.
