Don’t forget having your own waffle station with classic Belgian style waffles and plenty of toppings to spoil your guests with choices.
Pair them with maple syrup and classic vanilla ice cream for brownie points! Set up a waffle maker with some batter. Instead of plating it already made, have guests make their own waffles by setting up a dedicated station for waffles since it is expected for people to hang around when waiting for their waffle to get cooked. Make sure there are a lot of treats for guests to decorate their waffles with, such as fruits, chocolate chips, rainbow sprinkles, whipped cream, and many more.

Cookies are a wonderful favour option, and they also work so well as the main event at a dessert bar. Plan to serve your individual favourite cookies and the flavour you’re most drawn toward as a couple. If you have family members who are excellent bakers or just asking to help in any way possible, ask if they might be willing to whip up the recipes most loved by your family.
Why popsicles? They’re a great, light treat to keep guests cool during summer wedding! You can serve them as a decent treat for guests. If you serve them in the evening, don’t be afraid to serve them jabbed with champagne!
Churros are a Spanish inspired treat, and the dough paired with cinnamon always makes us think of celebratory nights with friends or evenings spent at the fair. Plan to serve them plain, or add a toppings bar for guests to dip their churros in a variety of options, including chocolate sauce, sprinkles, and candy.
Doughnut walls are increasing in their popularity place doughnuts on cake stands and platters. Make sure to order a variety of your favourite flavours and plan to place signs indicating the name and ingredients in each one. Make your doughnut bar DIY with a spread of sprinkle and nut toppings your guests can add. Not only can they satisfy a sweet tooth, but their varied shapes also make for interesting decor on the table. You can also individually wrap them as an edible giveaway.
