Last year was a very exciting year for us at Events by Emma! We received a Canadian Wedding Industry Award for Best Reception Décor 2014.

We also started this year off with the honour of being named Top Event Planner of 2015 in the City of Winnipeg. Thousands of Canadians in 13 cities named their top choices and we were chosen!

We want to personally thank everyone who has supported Emma and the Events by Emma team. It’s always such an honour to be nominated for these awards let alone receive the award. Thank you to our  partner vendors, clients, volunteers and staff, we are so fortunate to work with talented people who help us every day.

We would love to allow for your perfect wedding to become a reality. Although we are booked for the 2015 season, we have already started booking for weddings for our 2016 + 2017 season.

Events by Emma offers a FREE one-hour initial consultation. During this time, we will get to know you, and find out about your wedding and share some details about our services, custom packages, and pricing.

Please call us at 204-779-8812 or through email at info@eventsbyemma.com to book your appointment today! We can’t wait to start planning with you.

Events by Emma is excited to be partnering with the Assiniboine Park Conservancy to put together the Annual Garden Party. This year’s 60s inspired fundraising event will be held in the Leo Mol Sculpture Garden on August 19.

All the proceeds from the event will help support the iconic new horticultural attraction, which will be replacing the existing Conservatory.

The night will even feature a special butterfly release that guests will have the opportunity to be a part of.

We can’t wait for you to see what we have planned for the evening!

Table Talk – Choosing Table Shapes

When planning a wedding or event, you naturally start by picking out colours, flowers, and of course your wedding dress. Table shapes and layouts might not be near the top of the checklist, but these choices can intensify your décor and change the dynamic in your reception room.

The first instinct for some of our clients is to choose round tables to fill the room and seat their guests. Although round tables are a classic option and a shape we love to use, we also try to change it up. By introducing different table shapes into your venue, it creates interest and can change the interaction between your guests. 

Square Tables
Choosing to use square tables creates a modern look to your wedding or event. Square tables allow your guests to easily talk to others, as long as your centrepieces aren’t blocking their view. One of our client’s biggest worry when choosing to use square tables is that more guests will have their backs towards the front, but don’t worry they won’t. More guests will actually get a better view.

Rectangle Table
Whether your theme is vintage, elegant, or modern, long rectangular tables can make any theme look beautiful. Also known as “family style” seating, this creates an intimate wedding. Connecting rectangle tables together creates drama and a regal atmosphere.

Mixing Table Shape
We love incorporating different shapes at a venue. Mix long and square tables, or combine circle and long tables together for eye-catching décor. Remember that every table can be tailored to work with your theme.

Once the tables are chosen, picking out what to decorate them with may be a challenge. For long tables, you may want to try floral and candle arrangements in various heights. Square tables have a much more room in the center, which means the centerpiece may need to be a bit larger.

To help you start thinking of centrepieces and to learn a little bit on how we choose them, here is a video to show you how Emma and the staff here at Events by Emma put together a few options for our client.
