How many macarons I can fit on a Macaron tower?

Posted by Elena Floarea on

Hi there,

Are you thinking of creating your own impressive and colourful Macaron tower? 

Many brides feel overwhelmed by the idea of this unique alternative to a wedding cake. So why not read our thoughts and learn how to create your own Macaron tower the easy, quick and efficient way?

How many macarons to buy?

Well, this really depends on you. Would you like your guests to just have a little nibble with a coffee or tea when the evening buffet is out? Or would you like your guests to indulge in more than one flavour and try a variety of macarons? 

We recommend a minimum or 2 macarons per person. The maximum? What ever your heart or your pocket desire!

Let's say you have 50 guests. With 2 macarons per person you would need only 100 macarons. We recommend you get at least 120 macarons because they can be fragile and some get eaten before even reaching the Macaron tower, or so some of our brides have told us. 

With this amount you can either create a 5 tier macaron tower or if you use fresh flowers or artificial flowers you can create the Macaron tower we show in the picture using 9 tiers.

Now if you want to offer 4 french macarons in different flavours or colours per guest you might be able to fill all 10 tiers. It will look amazing. Why not use your colour theme and create an ombre look?

The macaron tower stand can be purchased from Amazon or you can rent it from us for only £25. We do ask for a deposit which we would refund once the stand has been returned.

Is it not beautiful? Easy and impressive!
