Macarons are a sweet treat that looks seriously chic, making them an ideal excellent alternative to a traditional wedding cake. With many couples choosing to serve their wedding cake as desert, macaron towers really come into their own in terms of ease of serving, once the all important photos have been taken of course.
Macarons are extremely versatile too, as they can be tinted to virtually any colour, so you should be able to achieve a near perfect match to your wedding colour scheme, whether it’s gentle pinks and lemons which look divine ……
Or super vibrant jewel tones, we honestly think macarons look equally amazing in subtle and super strong shades.
The number of flavours available also seems to be growing daily, and because they are individual, they can be flavoured differently, according to colour etc, so there should be one to suit all tastes, literally!
The best macarons have a light, crunchy exterior and when you bite into them, that melt in the mouth texture, together with a flavour burst is such a treat. As a chic alternative to a traditional wedding fruit cake, they’re certainly winning over more and more couples and their guests.
Macarons As Wedding Favours
Macarons also work wonderfully well as wedding favours. Have them colour matched to your wedding theme, package them up prettily and they will add extra glamour to your wedding tables.
They can also be used as table place settings if you attach tags to each box with your individual guest’s beautifully handwritten on it.
Personalised Photo Image Macarons
For the ultimate indulgence, why don’t you order some personalised photo image macarons for your big day. You could choose a fun shot of yourselves, a photo from an engagement shoot or any image that conveys your happiness as a couple.
Then, once you’ve received your wedding photos, why not send some out as a lovely accompaniment to your thank you cards?
