With the recession being part of our lives today, most brides and grooms are quieter in the way they project and plan their weddings. However, it doesn’t mean that your wedding can’t be “au courant”. Here are some tips on how to be “in” for your 2010 weddings:
• Find unique venues such as barns, art galleries, studios and homes instead of large, expensive ballrooms.
• Chose communal tables (long table seating) verses individual 8x10 tables.
• Use candles to substitute pin lighting.
• Stick to some classics. Utilize a clean, floor length and high quality cotton tablecloth.
• Use elongated mirror runners and different textures to create a mood.
• Incorporate natural elements for table decorations such as leaves, bark, branches, grass and moss intermixed with flowers
If you could create your dream wedding stationery, what would it look like? Melanie Carter gets to answer that question everyday as the owner of Lucky Paperie. For her boutique she chooses modern, hand-crafted letterpress designs for keepsakes like invitations, placecards, menus, and ceremony programs. Those creations can then be customized with a variety of materials such as satin ribbon, monograms, and sparkles.
Even though the Georgia-based boutique is making a splash in the wedding industry, Lucky Paperie actually offers paper goods for all occasions. See more online.
You will find that your photographer and your videographer are two very important members of your wedding team. They will capture the images that serve as your memories. It’s very important that you are comfortable with both of these vendors - as being uncomfortable does show in the final product. When interviewing potential vendors, make sure that you like not only their style, but that they work well with you and with others - making the day successful for all involved.
