With food being at the heart of most weddings today, it was only a matter of time before it developed into a focal point for the day too. Many couples are now choosing to wow their wedding guests with edible displays, resulting in some truly wonderful memories and amazing pictures!
By creating a display it allows for an interactive spot for guests to gravitate towards and also makes for a great talking point.
Do you want to make food the focus of your day? There are some amazing ideas to wow your guests…
Still standing as a firm favorite is the doughnut wall. Not only is this a fun way to treat your guests, but it’s also a great dance floor snack too.
Styling can make all the difference in turning a sweet treat into a wow factor and a gorgeous talking point! Which in turn makes your edible display a great focal feature.
Having a dessert table? Great!
Macarons are creeping up on the popularity chart and becoming a firm favorite to have on display alongside wedding cakes. As the perfect delicate display piece, it certainly is eye-catching.
Maison Des Macarons create some swoon-worthy towers which can also double up as great wedding favors too.
Like the macaron tower, the croquembouche can proudly take center stage on any dessert table. It is also the perfect alternative to a traditional wedding cake, with a delightful tower of choux pastry bound by spun sugar or even decorated with lavish chocolates and edible flowers.
Grape & Fig founded the UK’s first grazing catering service and are redefining catering one graze at a time!
Grazing tables allow you to get creative and create a piece of art with your food display. Want to add the extra wow factor? Ask your florist to create a bespoke installation to frame the display.
Helen Ward of Sweet Feast Grazing creates show-stopping moments, which give any wedding or event the wow factor. By using an amazing range of sweet bakes and candy shop treats combined with high-end styling, this really is an amazing sweet alternative. However, be sure to keep the kids away from this table…they’ll be bouncing off the ceiling and running circles around the dancefloor!
Dessert Canape Towers
Dorothy Rugira, Event Manager at Canary Wharf’s East Wintergarden predicts that “2019 will see the growth of dessert canape towers and catering suppliers will continue to push creative boundaries by conjuring up stunning visual displays.”
There are two ways in which you can embrace this display idea. Either by having a huge dessert canape tower on display for the wow factor, as imaged here by Salt & Caramel. Or by having two-three smaller tea stands of dessert canapes delivered to each table for dessert – an almost nod to afternoon tea styling, this is a great way to speed up service if you’re tight on time.
However, you choose to wow your guests with your edible display, just be sure not to miss out in digging in yourself!
