Cupcakes have been a hot wedding trend for the past few years but now there is a new star on the wedding dessert horizon. The macaroon is a heavenly dessert with growing popularity with brides across North America. It is fast becoming the trend when infusing one’s wedding with a fun, colorful, bite size treat that is sure to satisfy the sweet tooth of all in attendance.
For those who are wondering what the heck a Macaroon is, it’s a French specialty, typically made with almond flour, sugar, and eggs. The outside is crunchy and the inside is meringue like, and usually two macaroons are joined together with a ganache filling.

Romance and whimsy only begin to describe this line of wedding attire. One of our newest vendors, Ivy & Aster, combines modern yet utterly sweet and fanciful details into each dress. With delicate fabrics such as silk chiffon fashioned into irresistible layers, ruffles, and trendy silhouettes it is hard not to fall in love with this line over and over again.
