PROMO TIME!!

To all the couples still wedding planning during the midst of this craziness, we have a promo just for you!!! Now until April 30th, when you book with us for your 2021 wedding, we will be give you a FREE sweetheart AND cake table linen. We are hoping to help bring light to this dark time for all of us by keeping up the excitement of wedding planning!

We love the sweetheart tables & cake tables probably more than any other tables because this is where you get to add most of your personality! No need to fear about there being too much pattern, too much texture, or that the color is too bright because you only have to cover one table vs all of the guest tables.

Since blue is the Pantone Color of the Year, what better place to incorporate that color than with your sweetheart table?? The possibilities are endless, you can choose blue linens with patterns or texture AKA velvet. Ummm yes please.Design: Lustre Theory | Photography: Molly Lichten Photography | Floral: Kate Fiore Floral | Vintage Rentals: Madhatter Vintage | Linens: Waterford Event Rentals

Deep down I think every bride dreams of a little bit of lace somewhere in their wedding. It just adds such a romantic, charming feel to the design aspect of the wedding. Featured here is actually one of our brand new linens: Princess Lace, I mean what could be better than that?Table Design: Soirees by Lauren | Photography: Caitlin Gerres Photography | Linens: Waterford Event Rentals

There is no better linen to steal the show than this one right here. Our stunning Mermaid Sequins linen gives you all the regal feels with the copper & ivory toned sequins. We love this linen but seeing it get transformed to this extent had our jaws to the floor. Everything about this design just has us thinking sweetheart table. Want to make sure your guests are always looking at you? This linen is sure to do the trick.Table Design & Floral: Fluttering Flowers | Linens & Chairs: Waterford Event Rentals | Photography: Katie Nesbitt Photography | Chandelier Rigging: Stage Right Lighting

Calling all velvet lovers!! One of the biggest trends we have seen closing out 2019 and still going strong in 2020 is the use of velvet! Couples everywhere are loving adding some fun texture to tables whether that’s in the form of a linen, napkins, or runners! Table Design: Sunkissed Events | Photography: Jessica Ryan Photography | Linens: Waterford Event Rentals

One of the most fun tablescapes we’ve seen in a while included our super popular chiffon runners layered with macrame runners. While this is a nontraditional sweetheart table idea, how cool would this be for couples really wanting to step outside the box and bring some Moroccan vibes to the party!Table Design: Astro Events | Photography: Katie Nesbitt Photography | Linens: Waterford Event Rentals

Southern Fall Wedding

Back in the heart of fall we got to take part in a beautiful wedding at one of the most beautiful venues. Nikki and Brennan tied the knot at the Oyster Farm Marina out on the Eastern Shore. Their decor was stunning and so unique we couldn’t wait to get these photos in. This wedding was one to remember for a few reasons! We loveeee that Nikki  wasn’t afraid to play with texture & she used some of these linens to go with the neutral, fall beachy vibe. Her decor included cute little pumpkins, oysters, and our favorite part: COTTON! How cool are these centerpieces?This wedding was so elegant and really left us remembering just how beautiful all the details turned out together. For the cake table Nikki chose one of our new, most popular linens: Belize Natural Nutmeg. To bring all the small details together she paired this with her napkin choice as well.On the deck for cocktail hour, she used a beautiful polyester stripe ivory linen which were topped with cute pumpkins and greenery.Love love love this wedding & can’t wait to see what beautiful ideas are in store for us with Spring wedding season almost here!

Stunning November Wedding

Back in November, we were part of an incredible wedding for such a great couple! Jess & Rob allowed us to work our magic making their wedding day dreams come true. What could be better than a great couple, at a great venue, with GREAT linens??? Welp, nothing! Here’s just a sneak peak of how their reception tables turned out and we are truly stunned at the outcome.What a view this is… We are obsessed with every detail of this ceremony space, from the draping, to the gold chiavari chairs with woven chiffon sashes, to the floral wall, we cannot get over this view.We love the alternating sashes between ivory and taupe. These chairs transformed beautifully to the chairs used at their head table during the reception.Pictured again are the chairs used for the head table paired with one of our hottest new linens: etched velvet! Jess had a vision for her reception space and these linens were sure to be a show stopper.Jess paired the etched velvet linens on her head table and cocktail tables & chose to compliment those using matte satin champagne blush linens for the rest of her guest tables. We loveeeee the classic, romantic look of her reception space with some of those pinks and deep reds added tastefully.Their cake table was a head turner in itself with this floral backdrop and one of our personal favorite linens. The champagne aphrodite linen is a perfect cake table addition and yup, you guessed it! Jess added in some champagne aphrodite runners at guest tables to tie it all in.This would be a great wedding to use for inspiration if you’re looking for a classic, romantic feel with some beautiful neutrals and hint of color.

Combining Textures Flawlessly

In the fall, we were a part of a huge wedding: 300 people to be exact at the Cavalier Golf and Yacht Club. The linens picked out for this wedding were to die for and we are sooooo excited to share this with you! Morgan chose to keep her guest tables neutral with ivory polyester linens and matte satin champagne blush napkins, but decked out her head table with the same matte satin champagne blush linens and rose quartz velvet napkins.This photo shows an epic shot of the guest tables with the head table located in the center with a stunning hanging floral centerpiece.The guest tables were kept neutral with subtle pops of wedding color in the floral.The head table was differentiated by incorporating long tables but also with a completely different fabric choice. The linens used were matte satin champagne blush and accented with the rose quartz velvet napkins. Both these colors proved to be perfect complements to the floral used in the entire reception space.These colors were romantic and beautiful for this fall wedding. We love making wedding dreams come true!

Fun Colors to Bring Your Reception to Life

Our favorite thing about being a part of so many amazing setups and weddings is seeing just how different and unique each and every bride is. In our area, there are so many venues that every bride gets to transform by bringing out their own personality in their reception. This year we had a beautiful wedding at the Historic Post Office.

Leah brought her reception to life with the use of a deep teal color accompanied by some fun pinks and oranges.A white full length linen was used and paired the teal napkins along with a blush chiffon runner. The teal stands out so well when paired with these romantic colors.The guest tables all had the same beautiful flowers but differed with a smaller romantic centerpiece, or a tall abstract bouquet.We just love the look of these linens with our mahogany chairs. The dark color of the chairs adds such a beautiful contrast.How stunning is this sweetheart table. This might be one of our favorites this year! The colors look like they were meant for each other and add such a lovely touch to this table. Who doesn’t love a good sequin linen and with flowers like this…. YES PLEASE.The cake table also took the main color of the reception with the same teal polyester linen. The wedding cake is beautiful and simple but the few floral additions takes it over the top.Rob & Leah, your wedding was absolutely stunning. We are so grateful you chose us for your linen needs on your big day! Enjoy your first Christmas as Mr. and Mrs.

Wonderful Williamsburg Wedding

Back in June we were chosen to help bring an incredible vision to life! Madi and Tanner got married at the Governor’s Palace in Williamsburg, then headed to the Williamsburg Inn for their reception. The outcome…. AMAZING.The linens shown here are the elegant silver jacquard which we used for the first time with this wedding! We love the subtle pattern that still makes the reception stand out like no other. The centerpieces were kept simple with a beautiful boa and some flowers and a few candles scattered throughout.We just had to show you a close up of these place settings. I mean how cute are these monogrammed napkins?!? We are OBSESSED. Each guest had their napkin folded hanging off the table to display the bride and groom’s monogram. Such a brilliant touch added to this sophisticated wedding. We also are just loving how the gold on their menu card pairs perfectly with our gold glass beaded chargers.Another close up of the guest tables’ centerpieces that were super simple but added the perfect touch to every table.Ok, this is head table is TO. DIE. FOR. The backdrop included three full walls of greenery with the most beautiful monogram in the center. Notice the flowers used here also match all the tables for the reception which makes us love it even more! This was such a fun wedding to be a part of and we love how the linen choices made Madi’s special day stand out.Wishing these William & Mary grads nothing but the best!

October Wedding Flashback

With all the craziness that comes with fall wedding season, we were a part of so many incredible weddings! One of the most amazing weddings we have been a part of took place at the Half Moone. Taylor & Tiasha had over 300 guests to celebrate their big day. And the photos from this wedding are TO. DIE. FOR.The ceremony began with over 300 of our gold chiavari chairs in the Vista Room at the Half Moone.This amazing floral archway made it’s debut at the ceremony and was a show stopper for the rest of the night. I mean, do you see this beauty???The bride and groom added white chiavari chairs topped with a four corner knot to make sure they were to stand out at their head table.The head table was kept neutral and really came alive with the beautiful deep pinks in the floral and the milania sequins runner.Guest tables were topped with tropical leaves and stayed consistent with the pinks and reds scattered throughout.Each of the place settings included a gold acrylic charger with a napkin folded across it topped with a name card.Taylor and Tiasha, we thank you for including us in your big day! We had so much fun making this vision come to life and wish you nothing but happiness.
