Wedding Ideas

 With three girls in their 20's we have been treated to some spectacular wedding celebrations. Here are some of the most unique ideas, spectacular florals and special moments from weddings past and present. 


Make it personal! This family used their lovingly accumulated art collection for the reception tent. 


Narrow tables allow guests to include more than two people in the conversation. Round tables can make for some awkward moments if both of your dinner partners are conversing with the guests adjacent to them away from you. 



In large tents, create dimension by hanging votives and flowers at different heights. This wedding designer cleverly incorporated lampshades into the lighting scheme and the multiple heights from table to ceiling create intimacy.


Create other spaces outside of the crowded party area: Flowers and votives hanging from the trees at varying levels next to the party space invite intimate conversations away from the noise.


 Punctuation in scale creates rhythm, glamour and interest. 


If the dinner is a formal seated affair, unique displays for seating assignments add that personal signature all weddings large and small should exude.

 A perfect example of dimension in a large tent. 

Also, this bride who is an interior designer did not neglect the naked band space creating a focal point and distracting from the less attractive assemblage of microphones, instruments and music stands. 


 Insert a little humor into the mix. The groom's cake is the perfect opportunity for this. Hint: The groom is not fat!! 

This clever bride created a surprise for her new husband: A cake with his favorite books. 


 Loyal readers have seen this image before, but it is one of my favorite touches. Many weddings these days have a special monogram incorporating the last initials of the bride and groom's last names. In this case the groomsmen wore matching slippers with bespoke embroidery following the pattern of the boxwood maze at the bride's Grandmother's farm where the wedding festivities were celebrated. Dudes, take note: Real men can wear festive foot wear.


Watch the Royals, they hire the most brilliant stylists. A bride has her back turned to an entire congregation during the wedding ceremony, so keep some interest in the rear. This bride was channeling Kate Middleton's simple and elegant flowers in her hair.  Sometimes you don't want the traditional wreath. 


 Sense of Place: When planning your wedding, embrace your location.


Love the attention to detail here!!
But... the most important detail is....


That we all feel the love!!
Happy Wedding Day to all upcoming brides and grooms!!
