How to style your Dessert table for your wedding in Tuscany

Especially if you want to have an all night party, there is nothing better than a rich dessert table for the pit stops among the wild dances on the dancefloor.

The dessert table is a must for weddings 2.0!

In Italy we boast a string tradition of pastry: a wide variety of cakes, but also biscuits and pastries!

But what are the rules to set it up?
Some suggestion to create a Dessert Table for your Wedding in Tuscany truly unforgettable. 

1- TASTING IN A TUSCAN BAKERY

Many caterers offer their wedding cake and have their proposal for the dessert table.
To make this moment unforgettable for your wedding in Tuscany and add value, we suggest to our couples to schedule a tasting in a Tuscan Bakery.
We will guide the couple during the tasting and we will choose together the Wedding Cake.

At this point, we are ready to assist the couple in selecting the cakes that will be part of the dessert buffet.

Don’t forget to treasure the local gastronomy!

2- WHERE SET UP THE DESSERT TABLE

The wedding day consists of various moments and to each of these we love to select a relative space:
a well-defined space for the ceremony, one for the aperitif, then to follow the sitting dinner, the cut of the cake and the party after dinner.
According to our experience in planning wedding in Tuscany, the dessert buffet is to be positioned as close as possible to the dance area and the open bar.

3- HOW TO STYLE YOUR TUSCAN DESSERT TABLE

This depends a lot on the style you have chosen to give to your wedding.
Organizing a wedding in Tuscany often involves a country style, inspired by the bucolic countryside.
For the dessert buffet in these cases we love using wood materials, copper objects, alternating with glass and wild flowers.

If instead you have chosen a more classic and elegant style, in this case we play with lights, crystals and candlesticks.
The flowers will be peonies and roses and our calligraphy will create cards with the names of their cakes.

4- LET’S COLOR

Often the style of marriage is characterized not so much by a mood but by a color.
In the preparation of the buffet we like to use color, it creates harmony.
A trick to bring color to the buffet without inserting mousses and creams a bit ‘old fashion, are the French macarons.

Our proposals for the dessert table for your wedding in Tuscany are a lot.

We are looking forward to…  guiding you to your sweet tasting!

We offer our full consultancy on each aspect of your wedding day in Tuscany.

DAY AFTER WEDDING BRUNCH

Goodmorning Wife and Husband!

Breakfast in bed is nice, isn’t it?

But we have a better idea to start your life, dear newlyweds: a wedding brunch.

Why have I a post-wedding brunch?

You might consider having one if:

  • You would like to recap the best moments of your wedding day with your dearest before they leave the wedding destination;
  • You would like to thank your guests for traveling so far for your destination wedding;

Where do you organize the post-wedding brunch?

We suggest to held the brunch near the wedding venue.

Tip: you married in a hotel having a restaurant or cosy lounge? Or you married in a Villa?

Ask your Wedding Planner to organize the brunch, arranging  a special menu for the occasion.

What is the better time for the brunch?

Be Careful About Timing!
If you had an evening wedding… the suggestion is to not schedule the brunch too early, above all if you have had a great party after dinner!
Leave time for everyone to be able to sleep in after the night’s festivities.

They will be happy of this.

K.I.S.

Keep It Simple!
Together with your Wedding Planner, you have already planned an elaborate affair!

It is better having an easy-going brunch and don’t worry too much about flowers and decorations.

And finally, don’t forget to relax!

Are you dreaming a destination wedding in Tuscany?

Send us an email and we will realize your dream with the best Made in Italy vendors and the most Stunning Villas.
