Waterford Wednesday: Linen Tips Part 3

Happy Waterford Wednesday!
Today we are bringing you Part 3 of our linen rental tips! {Check out Part 1 & Part 2}.
If you really take a step back and survey a wedding reception as a whole, you’ll often see that a significant portion of the overall look and feel comes from the choice of linens. We like to refer to linens as the “secret sauce” of a reception.

Check out a few {more} of our linen rental tips. . .

Bring In Specific Color Swatches

Making sure that the linens you decide to rent match the colors of the various other pieces of your wedding (dresses, ties, decor) is crucial! If you have a unique or very particular color shade that you need to match, it’s always a good idea to bring in a color swatch to ensure that you have a perfect match!

Ask For Referrals 
We can’t stress this enough! Asking your wedding coordinator if they have a preferred linen vendor is the best way to ensure you get the best quality linens as well as service! Your coordinator has more than likely worked with countless vendors and can provide you with the best possible recommendation for your needs.

Custom Linens Take Time
Tiltawhirl-Imagery-for-Touche-Events-01
Most linen companies work on a first-come, first-served basis, so reserving your linens in advance is crucial. If you need/want custom linens for your event, whether that be a unique pattern, size, or fabric, it’s best to reserve them months in advance! This gives time to purchase these special linens while also making sure there is plenty of time for them to be shipped in!

Feature Friday: Sheer Ribbon Sequins

It’s Feature Friday!
We can’t wait to feature all of the new linens that we’ve added to our inventory over the past few months. Today is all about a gorgeous specialty linen that Kelly Gish Floral Design used as part of her table design at the Crystal Clear Vision Event.

We just love this fun and festive linen! It’s made from a sheer mesh fabric and intertwined with just the right amount of sequins. This particular linen comes in ivory with gold sequins or white with silver sequins and both are stunning! If you love sequins, but don’t want a full sequins linen, this is the perfect alternative!

Waterford Wednesday: Spring Linen Ideas

Happy Wednesday everyone!
If you are having a wedding or special event this Spring, or even planning one for next Spring, today is your lucky day! We’re sharing a few of our favorite decor and linen ideas for some gorgeous springtime events. There are so many different themes and colors that are perfect for a Spring event. . .here are two that we are loving!

Embrace Ombre
1479175_908041489248145_415861703845267841_nOmbre has become a super popular trend in every day life, ranging from hair to clothing. Why not create this gorgeous effect with some bright Spring colors? There are countless ways you could utilize the ombre effect, but we personally love the idea of varying shades of napkins or chair sashes! We absolutely loved how our purple ombre chair sashes turned out at the Reception Line this past fall!

Use Florals

Spring is the official introduction to wedding season, and incorporating floral arrangements or floral print fabrics is the perfect way to freshen up a Spring table! There are plenty of ways to achieve a great floral look in your table design and one of our most recent favorite ways is with a floral lace linen. We used one of these gorgeous linens on top of our sequin linen, but having a pretty, soft pastel linen as your base linen would be a showstopper as well!

Waterford Wednesday: Using Color

Happy Wednesday Friends!
Over the past few months we’ve done countless “Tips & Tricks” posts about various topics ranging from linen rental tips, tips for attending bridal shows and planning for your big day. Today we’re adding another to our list. . .tips on using color! With thousands of linens in countless different colors in our inventory, we have a couple tips to share when it comes to the do’s and don’ts of color!

Don’t: Go Color Crazy!
When the initial wedding or event planning process begins, choosing the colors that you want to represent your event is normally at the top of the list. When choosing these colors it’s important to remember that while pink, orange, green, and blue are all tied for your favorite color, you don’t need to include all of them in your table designs and decor! Limiting your color palette to two to three colors that compliment each other well is key. Pictured below, Palette of Petals incorporated many different colors in the same deep, rich color tones at our Crystal Clear Vision event and the end result was magical! By using similar colors in various shades, they created a gorgeous, striking look that made a huge impact!

Do: Embrace Neutral Colors
The easiest way to ensure you don’t have too many color distractions at your event is to embrace neutral colors in your linens! White, ivory, beige, and taupe are the perfect neutral colors to have as a base for your event. With these neutrals as a base, you’re given more flexibility when incorporating many different colors or even patterns in your table and event designs!

Waterford Wednesday: Sequins Linens

We’re back for our favorite day of the week: Waterford Wednesday!
A couple months ago, we did a guest post over on Jamie Leigh Events blog about what different linen trends we predicted would be popular this wedding season. The particular trend we were most excited about was sequins linens! We saw sequins linens used a little bit last wedding season, but we were hoping and praying that these sparkly beauties would stick around a lot longer. Well, in just the first few weeks of wedding season we have not been disappointed! This past weekend we had about 50 sequins linens ready to add some shine to events all over Hampton Roads! Check out some of our favorite table designs featuring sequins linens below!

Each vendor that decided to use a sequins linen in their table design had such a different vision that it made for a perfect overview of many different options!

If these beautiful photos didn’t convince you that you absolutely need a little sparkle at your event, we don’t know what will! We have MANY different sequins color options including: black, ivory, white, gold, silver, copper and red!
