Waterford Wednesday: 1 Product, 3 Ways

It’s Waterford Wednesday!
Last week, we showed you “1 Linen, 3 Ways“! This week, we’re going to show you “1 Product, 3 ways” with our chiavari chairs! To say we are OBSESSED with these chairs is a complete understatement, and today we’re excited to show you a few different ways that they can be utilized at your event!

One of the most popular ways to utilize chiavari chairs is for ceremony seating! Oftentimes, brides are so concerned about their reception area that they forget all about the importance of ceremony seating. Chiavari chairs are an easy way to ensure that your ceremony setup will be uniformed AND beautiful. Plus, the ceremony is a portion of your wedding where a lot of your photos will be taken, so you want nice looking chairs that will give off a polished look in photos!

There are so many different options when it comes to reception area seating, but chiavari chairs are definitely becoming the most popular choice! They give a classic and overall brighter look to the area as a whole! Chiavari chairs are an excellent option for those that want to use simple linens, yet want their area to feel elegant and upscale!

Chivari chairs are beautiful standing alone, but adding weaved chiffon sashes creates such an elegant and romantic look! The sheer, lightweight fabric of chiffon hangs perfectly on chivari chairs while the weaving pattern creates a unique and different style! We love how the weaved chiffon in this photo by Erika Mills was used to differentiate the bride and grooms chairs from the rest!

Waterford Wednesday: 1 Linen, 3 Ways

It’s Waterford Wednesday!

Can you believe that we’re already nearing the end of July?! This month & wedding season is completely flying by for us with so many events and design meetings for sweet clients. Today we’ve got a “1 Linen, 3 Ways” post to share, featuring one of our favorite linens – Vintage Floral Lace Overlays! These beauties are so versatile and classy, we always love their looks!

This beautiful head table from a vintage wedding at Museum of Contemporary Art? This table design is still one of our favorites, and our Vintage Lace Overlays over the Periwinkle Satin full length linens was absolutely gorgeous! Our Vintage Lace Overlays are so adaptable that they aren’t just delegated to round tables, you can use two or three to create the same type of look on long tables too!

This sweetheart specialty linen is the perfect combination! Pairing our Vintage Floral Lace Overlay and Gold Sequin specialty linen, makes for a beautiful sweetheart table. Pairing the Vintage Lace Overlay with any specialty linen is sure to make a great addition to any event! The overlay is always a romantic choice for your sweetheart table.

Last but not least is this bold and beautiful table design that features our black Vintage Lace Overlay! We love a bold design and the black Vintage Lace Overlay paired with a Red Satin linen underneath compliment each other so well! This linen could definitely be transitioned to many different seasons by placing a different satin colored linen underneath it as well!

Jessica is a senior at Old Dominion University. Her major is Park, Recreation, and Tourism Studies with a concentration in Tourism Management. After participating in the Disney College Program, she decided she wanted to work towards a rewarding career in the tourism and hospitality industry. With her over 10 years experience in the customer service industry, positive attitude, and willingness to learn new things, we knew she’d be the perfect fit for our internship program! “This opportunity has been an eye opening experience into the events industry. I have had the most amazing time being an intern at Waterford!” Jessica’s favorite part of her internship is having the opportunity be creative in her work and help with big events like The Summer Social.

As a Hampton Roads native she has been able to see hands on how the little things can transform a venue from every day to an extravagant wedding. “I have really enjoyed getting to meet all sorts of people and get to see how gratifying it is to see an event put together,” she said. Her favorite part of the internship has been the personal connections she has been able to make, her positive attitude and constant smile helps make her the great people person she is!

Waterford Wednesday – Linens for Every Budget

It’s Waterford Wednesday!
As wedding industry professionals, we understand that each and every person has a different budget for their wedding, so it’s important to us to be sure we provide a wide array of linens at different price points. Today we’re going to show you how your event can shine with linens no matter the budget!

Modest

If you have a modest linen budget, there are so many different combinations that you can take advantage of, without going over. Napkins, of course, are always one of our favorite ways to dress up a table at a lower cost! Using one of our basic polyester linens is another way to make your tables look clean and put together without spending a lot of money. If you get lucky with a venue that will provide your base linens you could get away with renting some gorgeous table runners that could bring color and texture to your design at a lower price point as well!

 

Standard/Higher-End

If you’re a bride that has carved out a higher linen budget for your wedding, there is a lot more wiggle room to get creative with your design! The use of full length linens on every table comes into play, as well as the option of utilizing specialty linens on some of your more important tables such as your sweetheart and cake table. Plate chargers are another visually appealing product that you could think about including with a standard/higher-end linen budget!

 

Lavish

If linens are one of the most important components to you at your wedding, there are so many options to make your design look expensive and lavish! The option to use specialty linens on all of your tables comes into play, as well as napkins and plate chargers to bring the whole look together. You can experiment with layering different linens to add another interesting component as well. With a higher budget for linens and products, looking into renting chiavari chairs for your event is another potential possibility that will make the whole room look extravagant and thoughtfully put together!
