The Sweet Side of Weddings!

Here at Marisa Nicole we love sweets (and our team often doesn’t get a chance to eat at weddings until dessert is served… so yeah, it is kind of important to us)! Therefore, today we thought we’d share with you some ideas on how to make the ‘sweetest’ part of your day perfectly reflect who you are as a couple and what you like to indulge in.

A good portion of our couples opt to go the traditional cake route (and there is nothing wrong with that!). You could go all out with a ton of details, shapes, colors and décor, or you could keep it clean and simple.  If a traditional cake is what you’re into, don’t let yourself to feel limited by structure or presentation, the possibilities are endless! We could all take a cue on “thinking outside of the (cake) box” from Kaley Cuoco, who had her cake hang upside down from a chandelier. Talk about the element of surprise! Kimberly Bailey owner of The Butter End Cakery designed Kaley’s over-the-top cake and we just can’t get enough of it!


If a standard cake isn’t your style there are various other ways to feature dessert on your special day! Many of our couples ditch the cake idea all together and offer their guests a collection of mini treats when it comes time for dessert.

One of our couples incorporated touches of southern flare throughout their fête and continued in that vein by having cobbler for dessert. Serving pie aligned with the overall theme of their day, and believe me when I tell you that no one was missing cake!


Sweets not your thing? Not a problem, take a moment to think outside the box like this couple did. They choose to have a cheese cake, in the literal sense of the word. This may look like a regular tiered cake. but the whole thing is comprised of various rounds of cheeses.


All that to say, do not feel limited when it comes to selecting the “cake” for your day. It’s your wedding, so choose to serve what you want to eat! Having the dessert that fits your style can really add a ‘sweet’ ending to an already amazing wedding day!
