My family absolutely adores brownies. Well… not sure, if it is the brownies or the brownie batter, since they all fight over the spoon. I guess you cannot have one without the other. Right? If you are like my family and love brownies, then you should have them at your wedding. I know some of you are thinking brownies at my wedding. I don’t know…. However, hear me out. Dress up your brownies and make super fun brownie pops. These would be a great addition or a candy bar or dessert table. Plus, I think they would be a super cute kids table centerpiece, if they were placed in a pretty jar filled with rock candy or jellybeans. I also love the idea of giving these as wedding favors as well. The possibilities are endless! To get the recipe for these yummy brownie pops click here to visit the Intimate Weddings Blog!

Iced Coffee with Cotton Candy!

 coffee

I absolutely love coffee! I love the taste and the smell. It is simply a guilty pleasure that I have to have. I don’t car if it is cold coffee or hot. They are all wonderful! If you are like me, then you may want to consider serving coffee at your wedding. Here is a super fun recipe for iced coffee. This iced coffee is special because of the cotton candy adorning the top. This touch adds something special and makes it more unique. However, you could serve any type of coffee that is your favorite.

Wedding Cake Alternatives

 Cake has dominated the wedding industry for years. However, right now there is a trend to skip the cake all together or have your cake and other desserts too. Maybe cake is not your thing. For many people cake is okay, but they have a dessert that they simply swoon over. (Mine would be cheesecake by the way.) So, why not have that dessert at your wedding? You defiantly should, whether it is only that dessert or a combination of cake and your dream dessert. Below I have listed some fun alternatives or additions to cake. I doubt that cake will loose it’s premier spot, but maybe it will get a run for it’s money!

Yum….pie! Almost everyone has a favorite pie. I am guilty of indulging in the occasional lemon meringue pie. Casual style weddings are perfect for a dessert bar filled with variety of pies. Choose your favorites and display them on beautiful cake stands for a stunning statement.

Here is a super fun option for your wedding that will bring out the kid in everyone. You can set up an old-fashioned ice cream bar complete with soda pop and assorted toppings.  Your guests can make their own floats and sundaes. If you are having an outdoor summer wedding, I think your guests would love this refreshing treat! Plus, if you want to go all out, you could have a waiter there making custom milkshakes and malts. Yummy!

Here is a treat that brings back fond childhood memories from many campers. S’mores are a beloved treat for many and how fun to set up your own s’mores station at your wedding? Your guests will have a ton of fun toasting the night away.

Okay, I am not sure that I know anyone who doesn’t like  some sort of carnival food! I am pretty sure that the majority of people I know would simply drool at the mention of funnel cakes! This carnival inspired dessert bar is a great way to take people back to the fun times at the state fair and other found memories. Plus, the food is good and fun! Showcase snow-cones, funnel cakes, soft pretzels, caramel apples, and other carnival favorites. This dessert bar is sure to be a big hit and leave a lasting memory with guests!

Some More S’mores!

I am personally not a big fan of s’mores. I know some of you are gasping in disbelief! But it has been a treat that is not my favorite. I eat like one a year just because they remind me of summer. My daughter and mother on the other hand love them. I think they could eat a ton of them in one sitting! There are many people that just adore them. That is why I think this favor idea is so great. This is a unique idea that would not coast a lot to make. Plus, it would be perfect for a summer wedding or for a couple that loves s’mores.

Baseball Themed Wedding

 After a 4th of July weekend, I thought this piece would be very fitting. A baseball themed wedding is a great take on a wonderful American tradition. This inspiration board almost takes a vintage feel with the bride’s dress and the lovely style of the flower girls. Are they not the cutest? The Peanuts and Cracker Jacks carry out the theme and are packaged with a quotation to the song Take Me Out to the Ballgame. I also love the idea of a waiter going round and passing out these cute little baseball candies and cookies. It reminds you of someone going down the isles at the game selling sweets. Then if you want to add a little whimsy you could wear baseball cleats as your shoes and get married on home plate. Too Cute!
