Calgary Weddings Reviews
I recently contracted Simply Elegant to do the catering for my wedding and from the first step a year prior and right until the end I was completely satisfied with my service. Peter was incredibly helpful and offered so much advice and let me customize and then change my menu a few times with no problems, he even remembered me mentioning my husband had dietary restrictions and accommodated his needs without being asked. Everyone I spoke with was friendly, professional and very helpful. They day of my wedding with off without a hitch in regards to the role Simply Elegant played. They knew exactly what they were doing and I was able to enjoy my day with confidence that no issues would arise.
If you’re looking for catering, definitely choose Simply Elegant.
I just got back from my honeymoon. I am beyond happy with how everything went. The food and service was so amazing and went far above anything I was expecting. Thank you so much again for everything! I think the catering is what made my wedding day all come together. Thanks so much!Cyla
It was wonderful to have Simply Elegant cater our family wedding.
I had the pleasure of meeting Sharon and Peter who were very kind, respectful and always ready to answer any of my questions.
The food was exceptional and all our guests had only excellent things to say.
The staff went above and beyond! Kind to all the guests, very professional and were constantly checking in to make sure we had everything we needed.
I would absolutely recommend them to my family and friends.
Thank you Simply Elegant for being a part of our special day.
Dear Peter and Simply Elegant Staff, It was a pleasure meeting you. Thank you so much for such wonderful service and food. I want to say a special thank you to your staff at the wedding.

To the Simply Elegant Team: You made our wedding day special – it meant so much! Thank you to each and all. Your team at our reception and dinner were outstanding, serving and pampering our guests! The tables looked “Simply Elegant” and so many commented on the wonderful dinner.Lou for Corey & Tara
Simply Elegant, the name says it all. From start to finish service was executed at a very high standard. Despite the weather Rob, Peter, Jade and the rest of the Simply Elegant team were fabulous in putting things together and seeing it run smoothly for our June 25th event. Great eye for detail and were in tune to what we were looking to achieve. Sharon, “Dame Extraordinaire”. Merci beacoup! Mere hours before our ceremony last minute request were being sent and she was able to make it happen. Words are not sufficient to describe our gratitude nor the the quality of service we received. Whether your event is on a small or large scale these are the people you go to. They make visions a reality.Rhonda Richardson
Everything was absolutely beautiful and the day went so smooth. No hiccups that I am aware of and no drama. The flowers were perfect and the color was bang on! So many compliments on the food. The selections were amazing and everyone said great things about your catering company. Thanks again for everything; it was a perfect day!Kara K Leinweber
Love simply elegant! My husband and I came in and were immediately surrounded by great energy! We used simply for our wedding bouquets, some decor and catering! We were so happy with everything! The food was AMAZING (I was glad there was left overs lol) the bouquets were stunning!! Peter and Sharon were fantastic to work with!! I will be using simply in the future for sure 🙂Jessica Smith
I have used Simply Elegant many times for catering though my work. While planning my wedding this past year, I had contact them to get quotes on catering, and to my surprise they also do wedding flowers. Now, being the procrastinator that I am, I left my flower purchase until the very end and not much left to spend on them either! After many emails back and forth with Sharon, she went above and beyond my expectations and saved me loads of money, while not compromising on the quality to get the flowers that I needed for myself, my husband, 8 people in the wedding party, parents and grandparents. I believe these flowers really added the special touch (and pop of colour) that would have been missing, and my husband and I could not be happier with the outcome.
I continue to use their catering whenever I can through work, and would highly recommend them to anyone one looking for exceptional quality, reasonable price and friendly staff wanting to help with any request you might have and then going over and beyond what is expected.
Thank you again to all the staff (and especially Sharon) for making our Wedding Day extra special!April and Dana Koch
On behalf of my wife and myself we wanted to thank you for the catering at Aaron and Kallie’s wedding. We received many compliments about the dinner and all the guests thoroughly enjoyed it. When we walked in the hall, the transformation that your team did in preparing the tables was amazing. You made the hall look great. We appreciate your professionalism and accomodating the last minute uninvited guest. As parents you want nothing but the best for your children, and we felt that they got it on their day. Thank you again.Donald and Mary Beaton
We feel we saved money by using Simply Elegant because of the special connections and relationships they have with vendors, we also saved money by not having to take time away from our jobs to go visit several vendors to see if they were appropriate for us…Sharon just knew what we wanted – gave us options to pick from and therefore it was basically one stop shopping.Holly Daniels
I wanted to say THANK YOU so much for everything you did over the past year. I am so grateful for your patience, multiple quote adjustments, delicious! tasting and amazing food and service on the day of my “big day”. Eric and I have received a ton of feedback from our guests that the food was incredible, and my only regret was that I didn’t get to eat more on the big day! It was such a whirlwind I hardly made it back to the food tables and now I dream of that delicious turkey sage slider! Hehe… Thanks again to you and your team. I will definitely be recommending you to everyone and anyone in need of catering.Cheers, Paige and Eric
I had the privilege to have Simply Elegant manage our wedding. This business is comprised of a team of extremely talented professionals that will truly treat you nothing short of a princess or a prince.
Our wedding was a large wedding of 600 guests! I had a vision of a Parisian glamour themed wedding and was very worried a size this large of a wedding would quickly turn into a nightmare. Let me tell you, I was wrong!
Enter the Wedding Fairy, Sharon Barwick and Simply Elegant owner, Robert Virda.
Sharon is everything you would dream a wedding planner to be. She is empathetic, a great listener, an excellent problem solver (she actually foresees problems before they occur) and an extremely talented artist all in one. Her approach is so refreshing, she will not let you panic, provides creative solutions and is always there to listen to any concern you have, no matter how many you have!
Sharon designed my floral including my bouquet, my bridesmaids’ bouquets, the groomsmen’s boutonnieres, floral at the venue, tables decor, cake table, our wedding party table and much more. All this while providing ways to cut on cost without compromising our vision. Did I mention we had 600 guests?
Sharon and Rob were there for us the entire time helping us plan and providing us with valuable insight. They also learned about our culture and how to address everyone in our family.
On our big day, Rob and Sharon had become a part of the family. Rob came and congratulated us and we felt like we were in great hands.
Sharon was there reminding me to enjoy every moment, look up and smile while going down the stairs and walk with grace, she helped us stick to our schedule to the minute. Really she was my angel guardian that day.
Due to my outfit changes we had a tight schedule, she made sure everyone was where they needed to be at the right time and let me tell you; that is no easy task when there are this many individuals to manage!
She even managed my aunt who came from overseas and only spoke French! Yes, Sharon speaks French as well 🙂
I could honestly go on and on about how amazing Rob and Sharon are as well as their talented team who always smiled when they saw us and treated us like family.
If you are thinking about Simply Elegant for your wedding, don’t hesitate. It will be the best decision you made after getting married of course 🙂
