Beginner September 2022

diy set up

Madison, on September 30, 2021 at 8:39 PM Posted in Wedding Reception 0 5
So we’re doing a DIY wedding, we have catering and all that but for dessert I wanted to do a dessert bar! Get a bunch of baked good from Costco or wherever and have them all set up. Anyways, my question is who sets this up and when? We’re setting up all the chairs, tables, table decor, the day before the wedding. Obviously we don’t want desserts set up the night before, they’ll be in the fridge at our venue. But when should the desserts be set up? I guess I could have my mom do it? Help!

    I’d reach out to your venue & ask. They might have staff that can do it.

    Can your caterer provide the desserts? That would be the easiest option.

    I went to a Wedding that had a desert bar and it was fantastic! They had theirs on a big wheeled cart. It came from a bakery that they hired. I wonder if your caterer could get a hold of one? I also went to a Wedding that did a candy bar! It had cute cone shaped servers and all the candy was in Apocotherapy jars with scoops in each one. I’m not sure with Covid if that’s a good idea though. I would take that into consideration with your desert bar as well. Maybe individually wrap your deserts or cookies? Both of these Weddings were pre-Covid.

    Maybe your venue can have someone to help out. Or you can hire a day of coordinator that can assist . That what we have to do since our planner won’t set up some of our decor I’m bringing I hired a separate coordinator.

    Is the catering full service? Maybe they will set it out for you if you prefer to buy the desserts elsewhere. Or like someone else suggested, you could include dessert in the catering. I would only ask family members or friends to help the day-of, if they offer.
