Top 3 Linens of 2020

Although 2020 was a crazy year, we did get to see a few great trends that took the year by storm! We are thrilled to share the top 3 linens of 2020! The last year our events were nowhere near normal but we did get to witness some crazy beautiful weddings with linens to die for. Just as we went through last week with our top napkin folds- we thought it was necessary to make the most popular linen choices known as well.

The fun part about rentals & picking out your linens is that you can literally bring your Pinterest board to life. You want it, we got it OR can get it 😉 There are countless possibilities when it comes to designing your ideal tablescape. Meeting with couples is the best part of our job and getting to step outside the box just makes us jump for joy. When couples are adamant that they want their reception space to be like no other the fun really begins! We get to mix & match napkins, chargers, table shapes & sizes which really gives you the opportunity to make your BIG DAY one in a million!

Let’s get right into taking a peek at these top 3 linens of 2020.

#1- Velvet

Yes, as I’m sure you can expect not only do we love velvet, TONS of our couples this year did too! Velvet comes in countless colors but also some added texture & patterns as well & we’re diggin’ it big time. Take a look at all the velvet your heart desires below.Luke And Ashley PhotographyCaroline Lima PhotographyAmanda Hedgepeth Photography

#2- Ice Blue Matte Satin

#3- Texture

Textured linens might be THE go to linen look for 2021!!!! This linen style is super fun because it’s not just one fabric that’s trending. It’s tons of stunning linens with different patterns & textures making it more than just one specific linen itself.Dragon Photo StudioKatie Nesbitt PhotographyCaitlin Gerres Photography

Cavalier Wedding Feature

Hey there everyone! Hope you are just as happy as we are that we made it halfway through the week!! Today for our blog we are showing you ALL the angles from a BOMB wedding that was at The Cavalier Hotel not too long ago.

I feel like we say this every time we do a wedding throwback, but for real this one is INCREDIBLE. From the views, to the linen choices, the tiniest of details, and the vendor list- y’all they went all out here!

Right at the end of October, which is normally our CRAZIEST month we finished things off right with Sara & Taylor’s wedding. Sara made some BOLD moves with her linen selections & boy did this come out magical!

Let’s start by checking out the ceremony space. She has her gold chiavari chairs perfectly lined for the ceremony and added some dainty floral decor to the first couple rows of chairs. We always love a good chair accessory!Now, let’s get a view of the reception space. Also outside on the lawn covered with a tent is her jaw dropping reception space with details to die for. Sara made big moves with her fabric choice and the decision to mix and match these colors and IT. JUST. WORKS. The two linens paired together is serving all the looks. From this photo you really get a good peek into the space as a whole, the drapery, the chandeliers, the floral- this is truly incredible.Let’s take a closer look at these tables. Below you’ll see our warm and cozy velvet linen in navy. I know what you’re thinking…. Wow they must really love velvet because that is just the talk of the town. While you are correct….. It’s not just us that’s obsessed with the AHHHHHMAZING velvet options we have to offer. Our couples dig it just as much as we do.The other linen that we paired with the velvet is one that is also SO pretty and has so much potential. This one gets overlooked quite a bit but is a beauty in itself. This one is called Extreme Crush and featured below in the color mint. This linen is perfect for the person looking for a little more than the average but still doesn’t get too crazy. We love adding in a bit of texture while still keeping the linen the same color.PS- Did you spot the little hand sanitizer in this photo? Thanks COVID for giving our couples the perfect wedding favor.

The tables couldn’t look any better if we TRIED. I mean the simplicity of the centerpieces allows them to be beautiful on their own but the best complement to the linens. And we can’t end this blog without showing you the view from the sweetheart table. Wouldn’t you just die arriving to your table seeing a view like this one? And the extra bit of florals and details that are in this incredible arrangement really just sets it off!Congratulations on your wedding Sara & Taylor! We are so thankful you let us be a part of this big day in the midst of such a crazy time for us all. Getting photos back like this really just makes it all worth it. Enjoy the married life!
