17 Wedding Cheesecake Ideas to Upgrade Your Dessert Bar
If you're thinking of having a dessert table at your reception, no one's going to argue against it! Who doesn't like to be given choices? Instead of a single slice of wedding cake, the offerings on a dessert table are varied and plentiful, giving your guests many delicious options so they're guaranteed to find a dessert they love. It also gives you and your new spouse an opportunity to personalize your wedding even more by having your favorite desserts on the menu.
