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!

Destination I Do: Canmore, Alberta

While we’re based in Edmonton, Alberta, we’ve had the pleasure of planning and designing weddings in many beautiful destinations – both in Canada and abroad! This series will showcase some of our favourite locations including information for couples considering a wedding away from home.

+  +  +  +  +  +  +  +  +  +  +

Destination ‘I Do’ Wedding Series: Canmore, Alberta

Canmore is situated in the magnificent Bow Valley within Alberta’s Rockies. A short one-hour drive from Calgary, it is an accessible location for both guests and wedding vendors.

One of our favourite venues in Canmore is Silvertip Resort. The epitome of Rustic Elegance, Silvertip is a popular wedding venue and tends to book up far in advance. Dark wooden beams and ample natural light make the Pavilion banquet space a stunning setting for up to 250 guests.

Conveniently, you can hold both your ceremony and reception at Silvertip. In the summer months, say I Do in a gorgeous outdoor gazebo overlooking the mountains; in winter, nuptials are exchanged in front of a cozy stone fireplace inside the Pavilion.

Here are some images of past JBW couples’ weddings at Silvertip in beautiful Canmore.

Canmore Wedding Planner: Carly + Taylor

Carly + Taylor’s Canmore wedding at Silvertip Resort combined their love of the mountains, winter and rustic elegance.

Set against a gorgeous stone fireplace covered in a garland of greens and lush roses, their ceremony was romantic and touching. The most adorable team of flower girls and ring bearers added to the sweetness!

We covered the tables in a soft grey linen and added wooden chiavari chairs for an elegant touch that complemented the wooden beams of the venue. Carly and her mom collected and stained wooden crates to use as centrepieces, and touches of lace and organic elements provided the perfect combination of rustic and pretty.

Thanks to Canadian Mountain Chic blog for featuring this lovely Canmore wedding! Beautiful photos below courtesy of Julie Williams Photography – Enjoy!

Bouquet Inspiration: Organic

The  last of our bouquet inspiration series features gorgeous organic bouquets perfect for the bride who desires a rustic or outdoorsy element to her wedding day style.

Organic bouquets are full of texture and mixed elements. Think beyond floral – succulents, cotton, berries, scabiosa pods and fiddleheads add so much dimension and movement. Earthy tones give the bouquet a rustic feel, while soft pastels convey whimsy and romance.

Be sure to check out more inspiration from earlier in this series: Classic White Bouquets, Bright + Bold Bouquets, Romantic Bouquets.

Bouquet Inspiration: Bright + Bold

Part 2 of our bouquet inspiration series – we’re featuring bright and bold bouquets full of colour! Bold bouquets really pop against a white or cream wedding dress.

Keep it all one colour for a more classic look, or play with various shades of a colour for more dimension and texture. To make an even bigger statement, pair complementary colours such as fuchsia and kelly green or violet and tangerine.

Here’s a collection of JBW brides who have chosen to go with bright and bold bouquets on their wedding day!
