Wedding Budget Tip #48:

Consider a dessert buffet instead of a fancy cake.

If you're not a fan of cake or you just can't stomach the price tag of going with a professional baker, perhaps you'd rather opt for a dessert buffet! You can easily snag a bunch of tasty treats and display them on a table in a nice way for a super savvy price.

Are you and your fiancé more into cookies than cake? Hit up your local Costco Store to buy a variety of fresh baked cookies in bulk! You can display them creatively for a cute visual impact.

There are so many options for sweet treats that don't include cake. From cannoli, cupcakes, cookies, and cheesecake, to pies and pastries, let your guests get satisfy their sweet tooth with a dessert table.

Is cheesecake more your thing? Choose a variety of cheesecakes for your dessert. This is more likely to be cost-effective for an intimate wedding.
