20 Mouthwatering Wedding Dessert Ideas to Serve With Your Cake

Finish your celebration with something extra sweet.
by Andrea Fowler

Just because it's a wedding doesn't mean you're restricted to serving only cake. If you and your partner split a sundae at the end of your first date, treat your guests to a sundae bar. If you don't consider yourselves cake people, throw some apple streusel, cherry pie or peach cobbler into the mix. 

If you want to serve a second dessert without interrupting the flow of music and dancing, have an attendant walking around and handing them out so no one has to leave the dance floor. Or, display them alongside your wedding cake for one big dessert table.
