No wedding feels complete without that extra ‘oomph’ factor to it, and a wedding corner may just be the perfect solution to that. However simple it may be, a wedding corner can turn a special event into the magical, once-in-a-lifetime celebration that you’ve always dreamed of.
Adding another element to your wedding doesn’t always come easy—it still requires a lot of thought and deliberate preparation. So before you execute your hunt of setting up a wedding corner, we have some tips that will ease the weight of planning your big day.
1. Space of the Venue and Number of Guests Should Be Considered
If your wedding venue is outdoor with a large area of space, you’ll probably want to consider having a wedding corner. Even if you’re holding your wedding indoors with a large foyer, or if you have a reception / mini wedding party before the actual wedding ceremony, it’s a nice touch to include a wedding corner to entertain and offer refreshments for guests.
2. How to Decorate Your Wedding Corner
It’s important to make sure that your wedding table decorations align with the theme of your wedding ceremony. Something as simple as the corner size can be such a fundamental element, but it's often overlooked. If you have a small platform for your wedding corner, it could create the illusion of an overflowing dessert bar, whereas a bigger table will offer up more space for decoration. Adding flower accents to your wedding corner will also be an elegant and classy touch to your wedding.
Table signs are also a budget friendly yet effective way to make your wedding corner stand out. This is a great chance for personalisation while ensuring that it aligns with your overall wedding theme, tying the whole venue together. If there is a specific treat on the table that holds significance to you, you could recount the “story behind this cake”. You could also include some puns that correspond with the treats on the table, such as “s'more love” or “donut know what I would do without you". These are some cute touches to add to your wedding corner that will bring a smile to your guests’ faces.
3. Choosing the Right Treats for Your Wedding Corner
The world is your oyster when it comes to choosing which treats to display on your wedding corner. If you’re into a more polished and classy table, you could theme your treats to match your wedding’s colour scheme. For example, rose gold cake pops, pink bonbons or mini pink champagne glasses can create an array of fun looking desserts.
Your wedding corner isn’t limited to just your cake and traditional pick and mix sweets, you can go all out with cookies, cake pops, donuts, macarons, profiteroles, chocolates and anything else your heart desires.
Jouer offers a wide array of sweet treats, mini pastries and macarons that you can order to spice up your wedding corner. Some popular options offered are Elderflower Apple Earl Grey Tart, Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes, Rosemary Mushroom Tartlets and much more.
Why not add an eye-catching centerpiece for the wedding corner that will spark many conversations and unforgettable memories? Jouer’s signature mini macaron tower will catch the eyes of your guests, but also be incredibly tasty to devour during the wedding ceremony. Jouer’s signature layered cakes are also a popular option to include in your wedding corner.
4. Consider a Wedding Corner Set/Catering for Easier Operations on Wedding Day
Having a larger number of guests attending means a lot more appetites to please! It is important that every guest has enough to eat, and are offered a variety of refreshment options that are both exciting and scrumptious. A room full of hungry guests will always be looking for quick and easy bites to satisfy their sweet tooth!

5. Preparing Wedding Favours
Last impressions are always an important component to consider as you want your wedding to be an unforgettable fairytale. Wedding favours are the perfect element to include in your wedding corner.

Previously, Jouer customized wedding favours for a couple that loved wine tasting, where we paired a bottle of white wine with red wine flavoured macarons for guests to take home as the perfect parting gift.
