One thing that remains common about wedding trends every year is change. This applies especially to post-pandemic wedding trends where we are still seeing fresh updates from decor to dining to fashion.

Vegan Wedding Dessert Ideas For A Conscious Bride:


Vegan cupcakes


A classic wedding dessert that is always welcome at a reception party is a cupcake! Vegan cupcakes come in a variety of flavors, including vanilla, chocolate, banana, strawberry, carrot, and many others. Vegan cupcakes with fresh berries and fruits on top, as well as edible glitter and flower petals, are just what you need for a cool wedding dessert table. For instance, vegan vanilla cupcakes with fresh berries and edible flowers on top are a vegan take on a classic dessert, or vegan carrot cupcakes with coconut whipped cream, orange, ginger, and raisins are fantastic options for your reception dessert table. To inspire you more, check out this deliciously moist and fluffy chocolate cupcake recipe by Shivani Loves Food, which is made without eggs or dairy. A classic cupcake swirl is created by starting on the outside and working your way in. If you want to pipe a rose swirl on your cupcakes, start from the inside and work your way out!


Vegan apple pie


Apple pie is a traditional wedding dessert that is considered to be a must-have for all kinds of weddings. Since it is simple to make and requires few ingredients, an apple pie is an excellent choice for a vegan wedding dessert. In this next vegan apple pie recipe by Tasty, the traditional wedding dessert gets a new update with a dash of organic sugar, kosher salt, and vegan butter!


Raspberry crumb bars


Fresh fruit is, of course, one of the simplest ways to make a vegan sweet treat! Take, for example, these raspberry crumb bars. Although the recipe calls for butter, a vegan replacement can easily be substituted. In this next raspberry crumb recipe from Country Living, the scrumptious wedding dessert contains fresh raspberries that can go directly to the hearts of your wedding guests!


Vegan apple butter-filled cinnamon sugar doughnuts


If you are hosting a fall wedding, what can get better than the smell of cinnamon and apple butter sauce? The decadent doughnuts from My Vibrant Kitchen are as rich to taste as they look from the outside. They are crisp on the outside, light and fluffy on the inside, and stuffed with creamy apple butter with a hint of cinnamon and ginger with cinnamon sugar rolled in generously. These doughnuts are an incredible fall wedding dessert idea! Perfect for a cozy afternoon at home, but also festive enough to bring to a holiday party, bonfire night, or maybe your family Thanksgiving feast?


Tropical vegan pavlova with lime and coconut whip


This totally tropical vegan pavlova recipe by Shannon Martinez will transport you to a sunnier climate! The vegan meringue in this vegan dessert recipe is made with aquafaba instead of eggs, so save the water from your next can of chickpeas. This tropical vegan pavlova recipe is a great place to start if you have never tried aquafaba in vegan desserts before. It also makes a great wedding dessert idea for your summer wedding. If you are going to make a dish with chickpeas, save the water to use in place of eggs in this vegan meringue recipe. Aquafaba takes a little longer to whip up in the mixer than egg whites, but it's well worth the wait because it's a great egg substitute in vegan dessert recipes. The vegan pavlova, like traditional meringues, cooks for a long time in the oven on a lower heat to allow the sugar to crystallize so you get that signature crunchy meringue texture.


Gluten-free vegan vanilla cake with summer berries


If your wedding guests have certain food allergies or intolerances, or if you are looking for a vegan lifestyle-inspired wedding menu, this gluten-free vegan vanilla cake recipe by The Loopy Whisk is a must-have. This basic recipe can be modified to make other types of wedding cake too. With a fluffy and moist sponge cake texture with no egg substitutes, along with delicious coconut cream frosting, this simple vegan vanilla cake version with summer berries is pretty spectacular on its own. It's a simple gluten-free vegan vanilla cake recipe that can be changed and tweaked to your liking. You can experiment with different flavors, colors, and layers, as well as toppings. However, the basic recipe is simple, quick, and completely reliable. And the best part is, it works every time and it's simple to make. There are no complicated techniques, no strange hard-to-pronounce ingredients, and no egg substitutes.


Vegan healthy snicker bars


Caitlin from From My Bowl created these healthy snickers bars with only six ingredients that will satisfy any sweet tooth! They make a fantastic snack and are far healthier than store-bought candy bars. They also do not have any artificial colors or preservatives and are unimaginably delicious! They are also naturally gluten-free, quick to prepare, and good for you. You can only picture a rich chocolate-covered nougat and gooey caramel bar studded with crunchy peanuts. Is your mouth already watering? We are sure it is if you like snickers candy bars. They are addicting in a completely good way, made with healthy pantry ingredients, and relatively simple to make in terms of homemade candy. They are also perfect for all-season weddings and for every age group.


Creamy lemon rosemary bars


Imagine having lemon bars that are vegan and delicious! Jasmine from Sweet Simple Vegan created vegan and gluten-free creamy lemon rosemary bars that can blend like a dream with your summer wedding details. These creamy lemon bars are a must-try dessert with the perfect balance of tart and sweet. They are completely vegan, gluten-free, naturally sweetened, and absolutely delicious! You can add a thin slice of lemon, a small piece of rosemary, and a sprinkle of coconut to your lemon bars, but it's not necessary. You can even dust them with powdered sugar if you want!


Vegan pudding and mousse ideas


Puddings, mousse, and parfaits, as well as panna cotta and crème brule, are all deliciously tender wedding desserts to consider for all seasons. With nuts, fruits, and even homemade cookies, mousse, panna cotta, and parfait can be completely vegan and delicious. For instance, you can make a delicious gluten-free vegan banana pie parfait with almond and coconut. Or go for roasted pecans, chia seeds, cashews, and coconut in a creamy vegan banana pudding. For a light and airy vegan and gluten-free dessert option, go for a peanut butter mousse with a creamy chocolate ganache. A delicious and light vegan mousse can also be made with homemade cookies, fresh raspberries, and pistachios.


Vegan cookie dough cheesecake bars


Could you ever imagine a dessert that contains the words cookie dough and cheesecake but contains no dairy, refined sugar, or even gluten in your wildest dreams? On top of that these vegan cheesecake bars would taste indulgent, decadent, and incredible? Vegan desserts are often healthier than animal-based fat desserts, and the cookie dough cheesecake bars by Le Petite Eats are no exception. They feature a silky smooth cheesecake filling made from cashews, studded with chocolate chip cookie dough bites and a pecan-based baked crust. They are a surprisingly healthy wedding menu option!


Espresso avocado chocolate mousse


Is there a more decadent dessert than chocolate mousse? We can't come up with anything! You won't even feel guilty eating Unconventional Baker mousse because of the delicious espresso flavor and nutritious avocado. The simple avocado mousse with a hint of espresso has also been a hit winter wedding dessert option. You can also add a dash of unsulfured blackstrap molasses for that extra flavor kick, but this chocolate mousse recipe uses a dash of espresso powder that takes this chocolatey mousse up a notch. Also, according to the author, if you can get your hands on some raw ground vanilla bean, it's the most beautiful flavor on the planet.


Eggless blueberry muffins


These vegan blueberry muffins from Vegan Heaven are incredibly simple-to-make wedding desserts. They can be made ready in 25 minutes and only require one bowl for preparation! So if you are into DIY wedding details, these extremely tasty and moist wedding desserts can be your ideal pick. Vegan muffins aren't any more difficult to make than regular muffins with eggs. Flaxseeds, mashed bananas, or apple sauce can be substituted for eggs. They are all excellent egg substitutes that are simple to make and inexpensive. This method can even be used to vegan-ize traditional muffin recipes. It's even easier to replace milk than it is to replace eggs. Instead, use almond milk, soy milk, or oat milk, which are all plant-based milk alternatives. You can enjoy these vegan blueberry muffins with some vegan yogurt and lemon zest on top. This is optional but highly recommended. If you want you could also add a bit of lemon juice or lemon zest to the muffin batter.


Hosting a sustainable wedding can be one of the best decisions which can go a long way to say that you care. Just like an eco-friendly wedding can speak volumes for your conscience, a vegan-inspired wedding can reflect your caring soul. From gluten-free wedding desserts to dairy-free sweets, some of the above-mentioned cool vegan reception desserts are also low-calorie options for health-conscious guests. Some people might confuse a vegan diet with salads and stews that are normally perceived as boring and unpleasant. But the truth is a vegan dessert recipe can taste the same and sometimes better than its normal counterparts. With just a few simple swaps of ingredients, these indulgent wedding desserts prove that vegan food can be every bit as decadent. For instance, if you are planning for a plant-based wedding menu, swapping ingredients like eggs for innovative vegan egg substitutes such as aquafaba can be not only creative but also extremely tasty! 


The list of decadent vegan wedding desserts is definitely drool-worthy! These vegan wedding sweets and desserts are perfect for every kind of wedding party with guests of all ages. These vegan-based wedding desserts can be ordered from your favorite wedding bakery after you have completely communicated your expectations and inspirations.
