Fun Dessert Ideas

Dinner done, now it’s time for something sweet. While many couples go for the traditional wedding cake, other dessert options are becoming more and more popular! Don’t get us wrong, we loveeeee a good wedding cake, but sometimes couples just want something different for their wedding.

Desserts are a fun way to get really creative with your wedding, and do something different! They are also an easy way to add a personal touch, or bring in something to represent your culture. If you need some ideas on desserts, look below for some of our favorite sweet treats!

Ice Cream

Who doesn’t love ice cream? There are so many many ice cream vendors in the area. One cute idea is to have an ice cream cart set up on our patio along with a table for toppings. Guests can choose their toppings and add their own goodies to their sundae.

Not your style? How about catering from C.R.E.A.M. They can do full sized sandwiches or mini ones, both are delicious!

Boba Bar

While not exactly dessert, these drinks can definitely satisfy your guest’s sweet tooth. These are great to add to the patio after dinner has been served and can double as a late night treat! Most companies will make the boba on-site which is a fun activity for your guests as well.

A fresh churro is the perfect snack for your guests! Display them on a table, or have a churro vendor bake them fresh for your guests. Yummy!


Donut walls have become the new trend for weddings this year, and for good reason – they’re delicious! Donut walls not only look super cool at the reception, but are an easy way for your guests to pick out their treat.

Wedding Pies and Tarts

If cake isn’t your thing, consider doing a pie or tart for your wedding. You can still cut the pie to get those cute “cake” cutting photos.

S’mores Bar

Perfect addition for a late night snack and a great way to keep guests and kids entertained. Add on Elliston’s s’mores bar and you have the perfect addition to the night!

"We just got married at Elliston, and holy cow we want to do it over again every weekend! Madeline was the best day of coordinator we could have asked for. The day of went off without any issues! She worked seamlessly with all of my vendors, I felt pretty famous not having to worry about anything around me. As for Elliston... you will not find a more beautiful venue. The stone mansion is to die for. They updated the front pond and it beats any other winery in the valley (dare I say Napa too??). The patio has been updated and expanded to the perfect size. I just can't get over how perfect everything is. We've had every guest tell us that this was the most amazing, beautiful, fun, relaxed and loving wedding they've been to! The combination of the best coordinator and venue is something we will always cherish." - Kristie & Erik - April 26, 2019
