Wedding season is upon us! I absolutely love this time of year, between being a hopeless romantic and a total design nerd I enjoy crying during sappy vows (and testing the staying power of my waterproof mascara) and seeing how the bride and groom used color and design to evoke their personality on their wedding day. After planning my own wedding, designing weddings/events for my own friends and family and being a bridesmaid 6 times I've experience enough weddings from all different angles now to see what simple steps a bride and groom can do to really elevate their day.
There is one detail that sometimes gets overlooked at weddings and that is the table decor. Hear me out, yes you spend weeks picking out flowers that you cant even pronounce or even new existed to create the perfect centerpiece, but there is more to a table than that! The tables are essentially little mini hubs, they're the place people congregate to when they want to catch up with friends or family they haven't seen in a while, it's where they're seated when you're introduced for the first time as husband and wife, it's where they will be chowing down on your awesome food, it's where your guests will go when they need to give their dancing feet a break and don't forget a place setting is pretty much the first thing people really take in when they walk into your venue for the first time.
Your guests will be hanging out at their tables A LOT, if you really want to elevate their experience on your wedding then adding little extra details to their "hub" is the way to go!
I believe that food tastes better when you order it off of a nicely designed menu ;) It's so easy to accidentally ignore this detail or *gasp* use the menus that the catering hall supplies to you (you know the ones, they're black and white printed on flimsy computer paper and often times cut unevenly by their intern and photocopied multiple times at kinkos) you are investing SO MUCH in your day, don't overlook your menus, table numbers and place cards! They make a world of difference!
if you're ready to elevate your day let me help you! Design is my passion, I pour my heart into it and treat every single event and wedding like it is my own (go ahead, ask my husband) You can check out more of my designs here or shoot me a line here (sending videos of puppies is option but highly encouraged)
