As wedding planners, we see so many different types of weddings from different sizes, aesthetics, locations, logistics, design, and so many more details! Needless to say, we definitely have our favorite details we wanted to highlight as areas to keep in mind while on your wedding planning journey!
A BEAUTIFUL PLACE-SETTING. When the flatware, glassware, plateware, linens, menu and guest card all work cohesively to meet the aesthetic AND the meal service, dinner becomes a real treat. The charger is often an essential element that binds it all together.
CEREMONY FOCAL POINT. Whether a lavish arch of florals, a portico draped in sheer linens, a magnificent vineyard, or a stand of majestic oaks, the ceremony backdrop and space should be thoughtfully chosen and logistics carefully planned. Even making sure the center aisle has the perfect width, and is precisely lined up! (One of my pet peeves is a misaligned center aisle!!)
SWEETHEART TABLE PLACEMENT. We prefer this over a head table configuration - the couple gets some privacy and a buffer zone while still enjoying their company. Make it a romantic space, its location chosen to take advantage of the couple’s perspective.
ATTIRE. Specifically for the suiting. Wedding gowns are important too, but these pieces are typically well thought out and accounted for with most weddings! For another attire piece often overlooked, take the time to invest in well-fitting, good quality suits, and accessories that are not an after-thought but carefully chosen to fit with the personality and vibe of the occasion.
BAR and APPS. Cocktail hour is a special and unique part of wedding day, where guests get to mingle and chat. Make the bar a focal point with top shelf drinks, specialty cocktails, or fun decor. Take the time to choose some fabulously presented apps, whether passed (preferable) or a charcuterie table.
