Festive sweet treats for a gorgeous Autumnal wedding day

There’s nothing like the promise of sweet, delicious treats to keep guests happy throughout a wedding day, and Autumn provides a delightful theme for wedding confectionery.

Gorgeous, golden carrot cakes, sumptuous berry compote, spiced cinnamon cookies and leaf-laden wedding cake triumphs are all visual delicacies to consider. They should not only be tasty, but look elegant and beautiful too.

The cake and dessert can be the centrepiece, but don’t forget the morish nibbles. Pumpkin macaroons, nutmeg shortbread, and dark chocolate bites provide additional deliciousness to the day, as well as adding to the aesthetics (before they’re gobbled up), if you display them with intent. Consider setting up a treat table and push the DIY boat out with vigour. You will be surprised at what you can create, just stick to the colour scheme so you don’t stray into madness.

Find inspiration below for your autumnal wedding treats. Whether you need ideas for your cake or cookies, these yummy visuals will help you get the look you want.
