You’ve scoured the best wedding inspo Pinterest accounts the internet has to offer; you’ve sent out your gold foil invites and you’ve even chosen a killer updo for your hair. Although it seems like you’ve planned everything down to the last details, one thing remains: your dessert.

Luckily for you, we’ve rounded up 14 gorgeous dessert options that will add a perfectly delectable end to your frosty winter nuptials.
