Waterford Wednesday: Ways to Add a Personal Touch

 Happy Waterford Wednesday, friends!
One thing that’s very important when planning any event is adding personal and unique touches throughout. The saying “it’s all in the details,” rings true when it comes to the event industry! Today we’re excited to share with you 5 easy ways to add a personal touch to your next event.

You know what they say – location, location, location! This sentiment definitely rings true when you’re considering a venue for your event.  Pick a location that suits your style! If you like nature and greenery, choose an outdoor venue, or if  you love glamorous and romantic, consider a venue that has “wow” elements such as high ceiling and chandaliers.

Invitations

Invitations are one of the first impressions of your event. A personal touch here will give your guests an idea of the style and what to expect from your wedding. Adding a beautiful band to hold all of the different pieces together, or a personalized stamp are two simple ways to make them extra special!

Additional table decor that either suits the style concept or are significant to you automatically make an event more personalized. We love the tea cups and saucers that were added throughout this table design!

Chair Cover and Linens

Chair covers and linens are always a great way to add a personal touch to your event. The easiest way to do this is to use specialty linens, of course! Spending a little extra money dressing up tables that everyone will be paying attention to (like a sweetheart or cake table) is always a special design touch! How great are our leaf petal linens on this dessert table? They definitely brought the  “enchanted woodland” theme to life!

Lighting
If there is one element that we always suggest (besides linens, of course!)  it’s lighting! Great lighting can take your event to the next level. Lighting plays a crucial role in creating the mood for your space, and adds an intimate personal touch.

Waterford Wednesday: Lesner Inn Styled Shoot

Happy Waterford Wednesday everyone!
We are coming off of a major Crystal Clear Vision high, and we can’t wait to show off how amazing and beautiful the event was with pictures and details over the next couple of weeks! Everything turned out better than we could’ve ever imagined, and we’re so blessed to have had the most incredible team behind us helping along the way. While we wait for the professional photos to come back, check out this amazing time lapse transformation video that our sponsor, ViewItDoIt put together for us. Can you believe the incredible change that happened in 24 hours?

Speaking of transformations, we’ve got some gorgeous photos from a spring stylized shoot to share with you today!
Ah! As you all know, we love a good styled shoot, and this one definitely did not disappoint! Nothing can go wrong when you have the beautiful Lesner Inn as the venue. The light pink and neutral colors of the linens that were chosen had us seriously swooning! And don’t even get us started on the vintage tea elements that really brought a beautiful and feminine touch to the whole design. We love how this particular styled shoot used many of the different spaces that the Lesner Inn has available, so you could get a full idea of what your event would look like.  You can check out more of the photos here!
