Dessert Themed Wedding Party: Engage!16


We’re back with more wedding and destination wedding inspiration from the recent wedding industry summit, Engage!16: The Breakers.  This specific celebration was a SUGAR themed soiree!  A dessert themed after party was a fantastic way to welcome guests to let loose a little and bring out the kid in them.  And no detail was left undone!  From the entertainment (music with the word sugar in the songs) to the chocolate martini cocktails and the endless buffets of sweets, even the staff had lips and lashes coated in sprinkles!  Such a fun way to spend an evening…and a great idea for an after party or ice breaker event when your destination wedding group comes together.  Take a look at all the sweet ideas from this event (and apologies in advance if you’re hungry when you’re done).

Destination Wedding Welcome Bag Ideas from Engage!16


All this week we’re bringing you the big highlights from THE wedding industry summit, Engage!16: The Breakers.  It’s a destination conference where the best of the best from literally around the globe, gather to share best practices, brilliant ideas, and lots of pretty inspiration for weddings to come.  Why does this matter?  Well, for one, those that attend are wedding professionals bettering their businesses for YOU, which is pretty great.  And two, we’ve brought back some inspiration from their events to possibly translate into your own.  Starting with…welcome bags!  Today we’re talking all about swag!!  The team at Engaging Concepts and all their talented partners (listed below) work tirelessly to theme out every little detail, right down to the perfect shade of coral.  This year, the designs were inspired by the host venue, The Breakers Palm Beach, a swanky spot for a destination wedding in Florida.  And here’s how that translated into product throughout the event.  Absolutely picture perfect!!

Instead of guests receiving a filled welcome bag, we each got to “shop” for our own swag and fill it ourselves!  So fun!

Pineapple Inspired Destination Wedding Details

Today we’re dreaming of the delicious fruit that is pineapple!  Not only does it make for a mean addition to a cocktail or dessert, it also goes great in tropical wedding decor!  If you want a bright and cheery, oh-so sweet wedding setup, then consider using one of our favorite fruits as inspiration!  Getting married in Hawaii?  What a perfect place to pop some color with this fabulous fruit from the islands.

Wedding Cookie Bars

We’ve had sweets on the brain a bit lately so rather than run to the store, I thought we’d share a sweet idea for your wedding dessert bar.  Cookies!  Grandma’s recipe, your favorite chocolate chip from childhood, or any cookies to your liking (decorated or not) make a great dessert buffet or favor idea at the end of the night.  If you’re getting married in a far off land, consider a local favorite like a wedding cookie, macaroon or other treat that might infuse the local culture into your event too!
