Best Wedding Dessert Tables

Dessert tables have been a popular feature at wedding receptions over the past few years. This trend began with candy tables and has evolved to include a couple’s favourite sweets and desserts, such as doughnuts, cookies, cupcakes and pies. We’ve also done frozen yogurt and ice cream bars, custom chocolate truffle stations and popcorn displays!

Why do we love this trend?

  • Sweet tables are a great way to personalize your reception, showcasing your tastes as a couple. Think out-of-the-box to your childhood favourites or desserts from your heritage.
  • Use a dessert bar to reflect your reception design, adding an element of décor to the space.
  • Rather than giving away individual guest favours, instead invest that budget in a fun dessert table that guests can enjoy all evening.

Here are some of our favourite sweet tables and dessert bars we’ve designed for JBW couples. Warning – do not view on an empty stomach!

Edmonton Wedding Planner: Alexis + Tom

Blush Magazine Edmonton

Chock full of personal details and unique touches, it’s no surprise that Alexis + Tom’s charming summer wedding was featured in the latest issue of Blush Magazine.

The entire celebration was held at Christ Church – a beautiful 1920s church in the heart of downtown Edmonton that looks like it belongs in Europe! An intimate late afternoon ceremony flowed right into an outdoor cocktail hour complete with delicious appetizers, lawn games and an assortment of refreshing drinks such as cucumber water and strawberry lemonade. 

At the reception guests were treated to a decadent family style dinner catered by Culina and an illustrious dessert table full of cakes and pies made with love by family members.

Her keen eye and love for bicycles made Blake Loates the perfect fit to photograph this wedding! Enjoy a glimpse of Alexis + Tom’s big day below.

Edmonton Wedding Planner: Catherine + Neal

Bridal Fantasy Magazine 2014

Catherine + Neal’s Royal Mayfair Golf Club wedding was recently featured in Edmonton’s own Bridal Fantasy Magazine

They chose to incorporate traditions from both of their backgrounds. Neal and his groomsmen wore Scottish kilts and his grandmother gave a blessing in Gaelic before dinner. To represent Catherine’s Polish side, perogies and cabbage rolls were served at the rehearsal dinner and the marriage commissioner said a few words in Polish before the ceremony began. A very unique element of the ceremony was a Celtic handfasting using the official tartans of Alberta and Nova Scotia, representing the bride and groom’s places of birth.

Their favourite moment of the day? “Seeing each other for the first time was both awesome and hilarious. The anticipation and excitement is so evident in the photos. Our other favourite part was listening to everyone’s speeches. Each of them was so heartfelt and funny – we felt very special.”

Enjoy a sneak peek into this wedding through Carey Nash‘s talented eyes…

Inspiration to Reality: Catherine + Neal

Catherine + Neal wanted their Royal Mayfair Golf Club Edmonton wedding to be contemporary yet timeless. To achieve this look we paired geometric patterns with a chic palette of black, cream and gold – we just love how it turned out! The inspiration:

Edmonton Wedding Planner: Beena + Craig

Avenue Edmonton Wedding

Beena + Craig’s wedding last summer was a fusion of two diverse, vibrant cultures: East Indian and Guyanese. Living apart to pursue their careers, they opted for a longer engagement in order to pace out the wedding planning decisions. We made the most of our emails, calls and whirlwind planning weekends to arrange their festive 400-guest celebration at All Saints Anglican Cathedral and Meridian Banquets.

You can read all about this gorgeous wedding in Avenue Edmonton Magazine’s January 2014 issue. JDS Photography did a fabulous job (as usual) capturing the special moments throughout the day – enjoy a sampling of images below!

Edmonton Wedding Planner: Lisa + Marc

Featured on Elizabeth Anne Designs blog, Lisa + Marc’s modern wedding is one of my favourite designs from our 2013 season. The day began at St. Joachim Catholic Parish – one of the most beautiful churches in Edmonton. The wedding party took photos on the U of A campus where Lisa + Marc had met (and spent plenty of time over the years)!

Signature cocktails welcomed guests to the reception in the Riverview Room at Shaw Conference Centre, where bold geometric patterns and pops of green and navy brightened a classic cream and black palette. The dynamic duo from Diamond Cake Photography captured all the emotions of their day. Enjoy!

Edmonton Wedding Planner: Jonelle + Sheldon

Earlier this week we shared the inspiration behind Jonelle + Sheldon’s wedding design. Today we’re excited to reveal more of their classic wedding with romantic details in soft tones of cream, blush, peach, taupe and gold. 

Both ceremony and reception were held at Edmonton’s Shaw Conference Centre – its central location makes it convenient for guests, and as most of Jonelle + Sheldon’s friends and family were travelling from Fort McMurray for the big day, Shaw was a perfect choice.

Edmonton Wedding Planner: Melissa + Bassil

Style Me Pretty Canada WeddingWe worked with Melissa and Bassil to plan their Fairmont Hotel Macdonald Edmonton wedding while they were living in Toronto. Melissa knew she wanted a wedding with Art Deco influence and a nod to The Great Gatbsy. Her gown was perfectly suited to the theme – the stunning Foxglove by Jenny Packham! Bassil and his groomsmen looked dapper in classic black suits and bow ties, and the bridesmaids were gorgeous in dark blue cocktail length dresses from J.Crew.

At the reception, crystal garlands and phalaenopsis orchids cascaded from silver candelabras. Navy blue napkins and silver charger plates mimicked facets inspired by Art Deco era architecture. Melissa’s bouquet was designed with sections of homogeneous white blooms that were included in each of her bridesmaids’ bouquets. As a nod to Bassil’s Lebanese heritage, a belly dancer surprised guests after dinner, getting everyone up on the dance floor to kick off the party.

Enjoy these gorgeous images by Carey Nash and head over to the Style Me Pretty blog to see even more of this delightful event!
