Escort Cards

One of the biggest benefits of  assigned seating, is that  you can  ensure you use every seat at the the table. If you don’t, you may have random left over seats at each table, meaning you will have to have extra tables. Extra tables mean extra costs in linens, centerpieces, and other items you may be renting for each table such as chargers and china. So how do you let your guest know where to sit? Escort Cards. These days brides and planners are putting as much thought into escort cards as the do their centerpieces. Here are some unique ideas.

I really like the idea of the vase escort cards because once they get to the tables they add even more loveliness.

And I totally love this one below!

Turquoise….I’m obsessed.

So, as I know every bride can relate to…I have gotten a color/idea in my head, and every where I go, I’m obsessed with finding something that relates. Hours on Pinterest, pinning ALL night…Right now, my obsession. TURQUOISE.

What’s not to love? It’s bright, fresh, and so versatile. You can pair it with almost any color. Red, pink, orange….

Really, I love it. I almost took a picture of my kitchen table, to post, which is decked out in a white linen with turquoise and red birds. But then I thought, no, I don’t want anyone to glance at my kitchen table and think it’s a brides table.

I hope everyone has a bright and fresh day!

Cotton

Ombre

In keeping with 2012 trends, it’s time we talk about Ombre.

OMBRE: adjective: shaded or graduated in tone: said of a color

Our Ombre Booth at The Wedding Fair

I am totally obsessed with ombre right now. Hence, we had an ombre inspired booth:) Here is an upclose of the flower arrangement I made, so you can see the color progression.

So ombre is a fashion trend really, outside of the wedding industry, but I think it will find its place in weddings this year.

Here are some more ombre examples, that lend themselves towards the wedding industry.

So I am dying to do an ombre inspired wedding. I have visions of walking into a reception where the flowers on the front tables are lighter in color and it progresses back to darker colored flowers at he back of the room. Same with the lighting. Any brides out there up for that?

Wedding Trends 2012- Men In Beige

One of my favorite trends for the new year. A neutral colored  suite. Unless it is a BLACK TIE wedding, I really like seeing the guys in something other than a black tuxedo. Lets face it. San Antonio and South Texas is HOT, almost every  “wedding month” out of the year. It just doesn’t make sense to see the guys, in outdoor wedding pictures, in a black tuxedo, in the middle of a heat wave. Trust me, the will agree.

Let’s face it, the  guys will look just as handsome in a suite that matches the style of the wedding, as they would in a full black tuxedo. Outdoor, or especially in the vintage wedding trend we are seeing a lot of right now, it almost is a must do.

Enough said? xoxo- Teresa
