This would be ideal if you are hosting a small wedding and the reception is just at time to mingle and congratulate the new married couple. A desert reception could include a sundae bar, dessert truck, donut wall, cupcake tower and fruit kabobs to name a few and don’t forget the drinks!

Traditionally you would just have a tired cake, but you could elevate the idea with a cupcake tower. Imagine tiers of cupcakes in different cake and frosting flavors all matching your theme. This is not only cost effective, but it allows you to have variety without being too extravagant.
