SO I am in minor distress about my venue and how they will be serving our cupcakes after dinner.
They are not.
They say for a cupcake tower, it is best to do a "self-serve" type of thing because trying to serve cupcakes on a plate makes no sense versus a slice of cake. So they have the guests take the cupcakes themselves. (yes.. we are aware of covid, and this is pending as we may need to re-evaluate this closer to our wedding day) They also say they can place the cupcake tower next to the sweets table we are having. So, my concern is that guests will see the cupcakes next to the sweets and think they can help themselves before we have dessert after dinner. (makes sense if they do think that- there are a hundred cupcakes next to the hundreds of sweets!)
That being said, is there a polite way to write a sign saying pretty much "hey these cupcakes are for after dinner lmao, don't take any yet" (yes that is not polite but I am sure you get my drift). I am sure *most* people would say "hmmm a tower of cupcakes, maybe this is dessert.." but again, rather be safe than sorry. And yeah, I do expect some people to just take one anyway, but the less there is of that the better.
Some things I found:
1. Cupcakes available for dessert after dinner!
2. We know the cupcakes sure look delicious, but please try to wait for the Mr and Mrs!
3. Treat yo'self to cupcakes after dinner for your dessert! Feel free to fill up from our sweets table!
4. simple "reserved for dessert, the sweets table is open for all"
Thoughts or advice? Thanks!
