Waterford Wednesday: Wedding Season Inspiration

We’re back for another edition of Waterford Wednesday!
If you missed our post from last week, you HAVE to go check it out to see all of the gorgeous table designs from this year’s A Crystal Clear Vision. All of the participants at the event had such creative and innovative ideas that it made us SO excited for this upcoming wedding season! We know that so many of the design elements that these top planners and florists included in their tables are things that we are going to see this summer. Using A Crystal Clear Vision table designs as our inspiration, we thought we’d highlight some different trends that we hope to see this wedding season!

Patterned Linens

Patterned linens are the perfect way to add a unique style and element to your wedding! We had a few different patterned linens make an appearance at A Crystal Clear Vision, and it really made for an overall visually appealing design! Geometric Patterns, just like the Sequin Medallion Overlay that Soirees by Lauren used above, are ones that we particularly love! Patterns are quickly making a statement at weddings in larger capacities such as on guests tables!

Bringing Outdoors In

The rustic theme is always a favorite during wedding season, but this year we think we’ll see a more “woodsy” design emerge! Emily Weddings, who took home ALL 3 award honors at A Crystal Clear Vision, captured the outdoors to perfection..they literally had a tree inside! There are so many different ways to incorporate the outdoors into your table design whether it be with actual pieces of tree or mossy greenery throughout your florals!

Metallics

Let’s be honest…will Metallics ever not be on trend?! Metallic linens have some serious staying power and are a trend that we think is going to be around for awhile. This wedding season we anticipate Metallics changing a tiny bit as far as colors go. Instead of just sticking with the standard gold and silver, we will probably see some colorful metallics make an appearance, like our Aqua Sequins that East Beach Catering and Event Planning used!

Texture & Layering
unspecified-48Photographer: Amanda Hedgepeth Photography
Textured linens add such an eye-catching appeal to a table, but adding in multiple layers brings the design to a whole new level! Botanique Events utilized 3 of our linens: Blush Petal, Champagne Satin & a Blush Floral Lace Overlay to create the perfect textured and layered look! We absolutely loved this concept and hope many brides use this creative design trend!

Don’t forget to check back with us these next couple of weeks for our Feature Friday posts where we will be detailing the various linens that each designer used on their A Crystal Clear Vision table!

Waterford Wednesday: A Crystal Clear Vision 2016

A Crystal Clear Vision at Mayapalooza was just a couple of weeks ago and we already have the images back from each of the photographers who were on site! We have been bursting at the seams waiting to show you all these AMAZING photos, and today is finally the day! We had 22 fully set reception style tables designed by the top wedding professionals in Hampton Roads and the outcome was nothing short of amazing. We will let the pictures of each of the tables do the talking!

Waterford Wednesday: The Waterford Way

Happy Waterford Wednesday, friends!
We can’t believe how quick this year is flying by…wedding season is sneaking up on us fast! We are preparing for an insanely busy summer and we can’t wait to see our linens and products transform each of our clients weddings! If you follow along with our our blog or on our social media, you know that Waterford is all about providing gorgeous linens and top notch customer service for all of our clients. Today we thought we’d dive into a few more reasons you should try linens the “Waterford Way.”

We Have Linens AND Products

While we pride ourselves on specializing in providing high quality linens to our clients, we do have a few key products in our inventory as well! Our most popular products are our plate chargers (gold, silver & even beaded glass!) and most recently, our gorgeous new gold chiavari chairs!

We Ship Linens!
Although we are located in Hampton Roads and do most of our events in the surrounding area, we ship linens all over the United States for our clients! We absolutely love seeing our table linens, runners, overlays, and more transform events from the east coast to the west…our linens have traveled all over!

No Event Is Too Big Or Small!

Whether you are hosting a 300 person wedding, a more intimate event such as a bridal shower, or even an industry party, no event is too big or small for Waterford! We’ve done gorgeous setups for both large and small events and love the way that linens can add something extra to any event!

We Steam!
Next to providing great quality linens, steaming is one aspect that is very important to our company! We pride ourselves on making sure that every table linen and chair cover looks it’s very best during a setup and that there are no wrinkles in sight! Check out a video we made a couple years ago on the process that Waterford goes through to steam our linens!

Stress Free!

Although your wedding day is one of the most exciting days of your life, it can definitely become one of the most stressful! One of our top priorities at Waterford is making sure that you are as stress free as possible when it comes to your linen rentals! For this reason we offer setup & breakdown services where our amazing staff handles all of the linen and product placement, ensuring it looks completely fabulous, so you can focus on the most important part of the day…getting married!

On Trend Linens

If you attended our most recent A Crystal Clear Vision event, you saw some of gorgeous new linens and patterns we just added to our inventory!

Waterford Wednesday: Pink & Aqua Styled Shoot

Happy Waterford Wednesday, friends!
We’ve got a super fun and cheerful pink & aqua styled shoot to share with you all today! We’ve been waiting to get our hands on these gorgeous shots since the shoot happened back in October! It was a part of Amanda Hedgepeth Photography’s Salt Air Workshop and the styling, courtesy of Sterling Dawn Events, just screams “salt air and ocean happiness!”
Before we show off some of our favorites from the shoot, we do want to let everyone know that a full post on the amazing Crystal Clear Vision event will be coming in the next couple of weeks…so keep your eyes peeled! The event went above and beyond anything that we could’ve hoped for and we are on a serious “crystal clear” high still! In the meantime, check out the official hashtag, #thecrystalclearevent, to see some glimpses of the event!

Now for some salt air happiness…

The pink and aqua color scheme was the perfect compliment to the gorgeous Outer Banks backdrop where the shoot was located. Waterford provided all of the linens for the shoot and our turquoise sequin linen looked fabulous and sparkly adorning the beach-y sweetheart table! Our blush petal linen was used on both the cake table and biscuit bar table and it brought just the right amount of texture and elegance to each table without taking away from the darling offerings placed on it! You can head to the Every Last Detail blog to see the feature and more gorgeous pictures!
