Response: A dessert reception should occur in the middle of the afternoon or after the dinner hour. If you do it in the evening, you can state on the invitation 'dessert reception following the ceremony' so that guests know they should eat before they come.
To accommodate guests who cant have sugar, you can choose sugar-free desserts, perhaps made with Splenda. Items such as small fruit tarts dont contain as much sugar as other items, so they are easy to make with a sugar substitute. Also include a fruit tray. By including cheesecake bites and fruit tarts, those who dont care for chocolate will have something that they can enjoy.
