Ok, so here in Northeast Ohio and Western Pennsylvania most weddings have cookie tables. I was wondering if anyone else out there has cookie tables at their weddings?

If you've seen one or if your area has them, please tell us where you're from. Also, if you've seen one somewhere else please us where you saw it. Thanks!

Here's an article from the Pittsburgh paper on the subject:

Here's what one looks like:
i will shout youngstown: the cookie table: a youngstown tradition

Yummy!!!

(Mods, please leave this in the General U.S. Forum, i would like to get a general U.S. reply, thanks!)

Do you mean the round tiered serving trays with the food on them...cause those pictures(lovely btw) have fruits and pastries, not just cookies?

If that's what your talking about, then I do see them on occasion but its not like a tradition. Like the idea though.

Yeah, I'm not sure how to answer. Ever reception I've been to has the tables with either the round trays or just plates with food, cookies, etc. etc. Isn't that normal to have little snacks/treats at the reception?

I haven't dealt with one that was all about tradition or anything though, it was just a typical table against a wall with all the after dinner snacks/food...

Usually cookie tables are made up of several tables full of cookies(usually on round serving trays). I went to a wedding once that had a HUGE cookie "table" that probably stretched over 30 or 40 feet, it was insane.

Some weddings have fruits, pastries, and cookies all on one table, but the better weddings have a least a couple tables full of cookies pushed together.

I asked to have it kept here in my OP. To me it has more to do w/tradition, weddings, and regions than food.......well, it has a lot to do w/food, but more of the others.

Here are some pictures of the cookie table at my best friend's wedding a few years ago. Too bad we were too busy to eat any. All of the cookies were gone by the time we made it over to the covered patio where the table was located.






They also had a chocolate fountain for all of these strawberries, etc.

I haven't. I think that around here cookies aren't seen as formal enough for fancy weddings.
