I love the idea of having a formal black tie dessert reception for a wedding! It allows you to go over the top with what everyone looks forward to at a wedding anyways - the decadent desserts. It allows you to have dancing, decor, champagne, cocktails and dessert while saving money on a full dinner and bar. By starting the wedding after 7 and indicating "dessert reception" on the invitation, you allow your guests to grab something to eat before. A soft yet sophisticated palette of blush, white, and black sets the tone for the stylishly sweet evening.
