3. Macarons

Macarons make a delicious option for your wedding dessert bar. And if you’re like us, you are wondering how to correctly pronounce the name of this increasingly popular sweet.  [ma·kr·aan] 

Talk to your baker about creative ways to incorporate these cookies. Maybe you go with a macaron tower or use them to decorate your wedding cake.

There are so many fun ways to decorate macarons themselves. For example, with geodes, metallics, monograms, to name a few.

Opt for Huckleberry flavored macarons to add a touch of Montana.
