Add Some Texture to Your Tables

When planning your wedding and looking at all things Pinterest, you find that the possibilities are endless and you can really make your wedding from start to finish a perfect reflection of you. Many times we see that brides come in thinking that they want one thing, but end up going with a design completely different than what they even thought was possible. We love being able to help you think outside of the box and contributing to your amazing wedding ideas that are sure to be nothing like the rest!

Velvet

We have talked about this one before, but velvet is HOT HOT HOT. While you may not be a fan of this for your guest tables, it’s sure to be the perfect addition for the cake table, cocktails, or even as your napkins.

Overlays

Lots of times our couples like the idea of adding a little extra to some of the guest tables or the bridal party tables. Keeping it simple with the linens but adding some lace or sequins is sure to take those tables to the next level. Sometimes every other table gets an overlay, or maybe you want to do your head table. One of our favorite tables of course to show off is the Sweetheart table- because hey you’re the topic of conversation all night!David Champagne PhotographyTable Design & Floral : Touche Event Design & Production | Photography: Kelsey Walne Photography

Patterns

Sometimes, we get the opportunity to step even more out of the box when we have a client tell us they’re looking to add some type of pattern into their reception space. Of course we can do that in almost every way imaginable. Most common places we see to add some pattern is on the cocktail tables, in the napkin choice, or sometimes on all the guest tables! Either way we are a sucker for some custom ideas and patterns. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box, we got your back!Table Design: Chef By Design Catering | Photography: Caitlin Gerres Photography

Waterford Wednesday: Head Table vs. Sweetheart Table

Happy Waterford Wednesday!
When planning a wedding reception, one aspect that brides/grooms need to decide on is – head table vs. sweetheart table. While this may seem like a trivial decision to some, there is often a lot of back and forth on which one to choose, so today we’re here to help you out! We’ve come up with a list of questions to ask yourself that will hopefully steer you toward the right decision for you/your event!

If enjoying an intimate first dinner with your new spouse is high on your priority list, then having a Sweetheart Table is the best option here! Of course at your wedding there is no such thing as full privacy (everyone came to celebrate you after all!), but having a sweetheart table will remove you from your wedding guests in a small aspect.

Is your wedding party small, medium, or large?

Depending on the way you answer this question, your decision might be made up for you! In our experience, a moderately sized wedding party makes for a more graceful/organized looking Head Table vs. a larger party. With a larger wedding party there are a lot of considerations you have to think of before agreeing on a Head Table. Will my venue have enough space to accommodate this? Will the group look unified at the head table or just crowded?

Can your whole wedding party be seated together without separation?

This question is a bit of an extension of the previous one. When thinking about a Head Table you should consider the fact that it is singular, and is intended to be one table, not multiple! So, if your wedding party will fit comfortably without looking disjointed, we say go for it! If the table needs to be scattered or have people left off due to space limitations, it may be a better option to forgo the Head Table option and stick to a nice Sweetheart Table!

Do you want to be the focal point?

I mean it is your day after all so it definitely can be ALL about you! If you want all eyes on you a Sweetheart Table is a necessity when it comes to your reception layout. I mean where else would you eyes be with the newlyweds under this GORGEOUS arch? A sweetheart table is also great if you want to incorporate some high-end linens without having to spend a fortune since it will just be on your table and not all of the guest tables!

Whichever table option you choose we know that it will be special for you and your new spouse! Your wedding day will be a whirlwind, so use these questions as a step to make at least one decision easier!
