How many desserts should you have at a wedding?
We normally recommend 3-4 mini desserts per person if your guests aren’t eating a slice of cake. As far as options go, you don’t want to overwhelm your guests with too many choices so we typically say only do 2-3 more options than the amount you are allotting each guest.
How do you estimate dessert for a wedding?
A simple trick: if you’re working with small, individual desserts (cookies, cupcakes, petit fours, donuts, etc.) in lieu of a typical tiered wedding cake, multiply the number of guests expected by 2.5 to determine the number of desserts you’ll need.

How much is a dessert bar for a wedding?

Do you need dessert at a wedding?
Dessert is an essential part of any wedding reception—after all, the tiered cake is something most brides, grooms, and their guests look forward to throughout the day.
What comes first cake cutting or first dance?
Traditionally, the bride and groom serve wedding cake in between dinner and dancing, often following the couple’s first dance. This is mainly because cake cutting serves as a silent clue that guests can start heading home, especially if they aren’t planning to stay for the after-party.
Do you cut the cake before or after dinner?
Though it usually happens much earlier today, cutting your cake still serves that same purpose (especially for older guests). These days, the cake is usually cut toward the end of dinner, just before dancing begins, and is the last “official” event of the evening.
What comes first toast or cake cutting?
Toasts can be after all two or three courses of the meal, or after one of the courses. Toasts can be before or after the cutting of the cake, depending when you cut the cake.
The general rule of thumb is to have between 3-6 cookies available per person (a good ‘handful’). This will vary depending on the size of the cookies, and whether there will be other desserts and appetizers; some guests may prefer savory snacks over sweets while others might prefer a slice of cake over cookies.
How many cupcakes do I need for 30 guests?
Most of my recipes make 24-32 cupcakes, I wouldn’t do a double batch, unless most of the guests were kids. I’d go with about 36. If I use a cake mix I get 24+ if I use the extender I get about 36.
How many cupcakes do I need for a 100 person wedding?
How many cupcakes do you need for a wedding? It’s recommended that you order 1.5 standard size cupcakes or 3 mini cupcakes per guest. If you’re having a dessert bar with other treat options in addition to cupcakes, you can size down. Just ensure you have enough desserts so that each guest can have at least 1.5.
