Waterford Wednesday: Winter Events

It’s Waterford Wednesday!
Although it’s been pretty chilly for the last couple of weeks, today is officially the first day of winter! This time of the year is considered a slower season for many in the event industry, but with holiday parties and winter weddings, linens are always needed! Though not technically in the months that make up “wedding/event season,” winter events can actually take a lot more planning than one might think. So today we’ve rounded up some brief tips to help make sure your winter event goes off without a hitch!

  Rent Early!

As we mentioned above, summer and spring months are considered the busy wedding/event season, but it’s important to rent and reserve your vendors early in the winter months as well! Not only are there a lot of holiday parties happening around the winter months, but you should also consider the fact that your potential vendors may have varying hours over the holiday season!

With winter being one of the busiest travel times during the year, it’s crucial that you send out your invitations early! If you want certain people at your event (especially close family and friends!), then this is a necessary step to take! Your guests will appreciate the advanced notice, and they will have plenty of time to work their plans and schedules around your event!

Prepare for Weather!

The last thing that you want to worry about during the planning of your winter event is weather, but it’s something that definitely needs to be in the forefront of your mind. Depending on the area you live in, weather (especially during the winter months!) can be very unpredictable, so staying in the know is key. Preparing and creating a backup plan for unpredictable weather, along with the delays and cancellations that come with it, will save you from a stressful panic should it happen the day of your event!

Waterford Wednesday: 2017 Pantone Color of the Year

Happy Waterford Wednesday, friends!
The Pantone Color of the Year announcement is always one of our favorites, (check out our 2016 & 2015 blog posts!) and we think they nailed the choice for 2017! Last week, the team at Pantone made the big announcement that the color of the year is…Greenery!
pantone-color-of-the-year-2017-greenery-15-0343There is a lot of time and thought that goes into choosing the color of the year, and one of the specifications for the color is that it is supposed to serve as a representation for the whole year. Well, the symbolic meaning of Greenery is “new beginnings,” and we think that is just perfect – especially from a wedding industry standpoint! Greenery is a shade that we see pop up often at events, and Pantone describes it as a “trans-seasonal” shade that can be paired with many different color combinations, which is key in the event industry! Once we heard about this gorgeous color that will no doubt be sweeping the event industry in 2017, we had to go through our archived events to pick out some of our favorite “Greenery” linens!samantha-john_wedding-norfolk_half-moone_june-2016_thegirltyler-2038Photo: The Girl TylerPhoto: Caitlin Gerres PhotographyCOVANorva0155Photo: Dragon StudioNorfolk Wedding Photographer covering Vivid Expressions table at the Crystal Clear EventPhoto: Memories by Mere Photographygreen-linens

Waterford Wednesday: New Products!

Happy Waterford Wednesday!
We’ve got an exciting post for you today talking all about some of our new products! One of our biggest goals at Waterford is to stay on trend with the wedding industry and keep our inventory stacked with great linens and products that our clients will love. Just like fashion, linen trends come and go, so it’s important for us to constantly be up to date on what our clients want and need. Check out three of the gorgeous new products we’ve recently added to our inventory!

Champagne Leaf Sequinsleaf-sequins-overlayHow beautiful is our new Champagne Leaf Sequins linen?! As many of your already know, all of us at Waterford are huge fans of sequins, so this linen speaks to us on so many levels! We just love the fact that this linen puts an interesting twist on a traditional sequins linen with the added leaf pattern. This linen is super versatile and can be used for a “special” table such as your sweetheart or cake table, but could also work great on your guest tables!

Rose Gold Floral Glitterrose-gold-floral-glitter-overlaysOur new Rose Gold Floral Glitter linen is another sparkly gem that is totally making us swoon! We love the vintage feel of this linen and the glitter touch is amazing without being overwhelming. The rose gold color is one that we’ve seen a lot of this year, and it looks great with so many different colors that you could pair it with almost anything!

Charcoal Natural Linennatural-linen-charcoalOur new Charcoal Natural Linen is another new favorite at Waterford! One of the things we love about this linen is the color – it’s so different from many of the colors we have in our inventory, so that definitely adds to the appeal! This charcoal linen is a great option for clients who want a solid colored linen on your guest tables, but are looking to veer away from the standard white, ivory or black!
