Let Them Eat Cake? What Would a Phoenix Wedding Coordinator Do?

What Would a Phoenix Wedding Coordinator Do?

Let Them Eat Cake?

You’ve never liked cake and your fiancé doesn’t either, but your mother is insisting you have a traditional wedding cake—think of the pictures, she says! You want to keep peace with your mom, so consider a compromise. It’s good practice for being married, right?  As a Phoenix wedding coordinator, we get this question all the time.

Many of our brides opt for a small cutting cake and then select a dessert that fits with their theme or taste. Dessert Tables make a great focal point and having a selection for your guests creates a fun experience.

We’ve seen Pie Stands for a rustic wedding, where the bride and grooms neighbors baked their favorite pies and the bride’s dad fabricated a pie stand. One of our brides borrowed an idea from Pinterest, and created a DIY Popcorn Cart so guests could make their own bag of popcorn with various toppings.

Cupcake Towers are easy to create and mini cupcakes allow guests bite-size treats that are easy to eat. We’ve created Donut Cakes, Towers, and Walls, that have been a hit!

S’more Stations are great for kids of all ages and guests love a Make-Your-Own Ice Cream Sandwich Station. Don’t forget a Coffee/Tea/Cocoa station for those cool nights to warm up those who aren’t out on the dance floor.

Take a peek at one of our Dessert Tables we recently created—we still hear how memorable it was!
