Sweet corner became an unavoidable part of every wedding venue in Croatia in recent years. Newlyweds often struggle to find as many ways as possible to prepare a great feast for their guests and keep them on their feet. In order to keep the party going for the whole night, the guests must be ready to jump on the dance floor. On the other hand, after a few hours of celebrating, a long wedding dinner or lunch can bring the guests down a bit. Is there a better way to keep the energy up than with a glucose boost! This is how a sweet corner fits into the big picture.
Here guests can treat themselves to a tasty cookie, ice cream, cotton candy, lollipop or an authentic Istrian cake.

Ancient Romans used confetti to liven up their weddings. They arranged confetti all over the table and named such arrangement confettata. Note that Italian word confetti translates to small candy. Confetti which are often offered at weddings in Istria are candies of almond with a hard sugar coating. Confetti are marvelous because they come in all possible colors, so use them to fill up your sweet corner. Newlyweds also gift confetti packages to their guests as a small but long-lasting reminder of their wedding in Croatia.
Using bunting flags to decorate a sweet corner is a pretty simple idea which adds a personalized message. Newlyweds choose a matching color for the bunting flags and add a specific date or recognizable letters. It looks great on the photos years after the wedding.

If bright pastel colors dominate your romantic wedding, then you should know that these colors will also look amazing on cakes and other desserts. In that case use neutral color palette while picking flowers, candles and the rest of the inventory. We adore these colors so much that we can’t get enough of them.
Sweet Corner for a Vintage, Rustic or Chic Wedding
Desserts don’t have to be always served on the buffet table. You can choose to serve them on a retro dresser or vanity table. You can even set desserts on top of the barrels, just like on the photos below. This is a great idea to add a vintage or rustic impression to any wedding in Istria.
Summer or Tropical Sweet Corner
A selection of fruits is a unique addition to sweet corner, reserved for Summertime beach weddings or an intimate celebration. Naturally, choosing tropical fruits will greatly steer a wedding towards a tropical style. Freshly squeezed juices are a colorful and tasty refreshment on a tropical sweet corner. If you are pampering your guests with cocktails, don’t forget to prepare a selection of fruit-based rum cocktails.
It is worth mentioning that, unlike bright pastel colors discussed earlier, fruits bring a more saturated color palette to a sweet corner.
Along fruits, newlyweds never forget to keep a lot of cupcakes on their sweet corner, which look and taste great.
Sweet Corner at an Elegant Wedding in Croatia
When newlyweds opt for an elegant wedding style, then we especially emphasize the importance of the sweet corner. At an elegant wedding, a sweet corner must be absolutely striking, but not oversaturated. A lot of attention must be paid to each detail.
To achieve this, we advise to have a desserts table full of theme colored flowers and neutral luxurious elements. Along flowers and decoration, sweets and pastries will fill out the table. It is easy to go overboard with the amount of cakes and cookies. Thus it is important not to overdo it when planning and organizing an elegant wedding in Istria.
There is nothing more appealing than a dessert table which matches the color theme of the wedding design. Photos below display a sweet corner from the recent wedding in Istria. Thematic flowers and a lot of greenery made this sweet corner pop and completely fit into the desired wedding style.
Sweet Corner is a Tasty Unspoken Message to your Guests
Sweet corner is more than just a sweet addition to your wedding dinner. Consider the sweet corner as an opportunity to surprise your wedding guests with many fascinating desserts. You can rest assured that there will always be somebody around the sweet corner.
We have mentioned that ancient Romans used confetti to decorate weddings. Now let us add that Roman brides wore a bright orange veil, called flammeum. Flammeum defended the bride against evil spirits and guided her through the wedding, just like our wedding agency in Croatia does for the modern newlyweds.
