Top 3 Must Haves at Your Wedding Reception

Happy Wednesday! For this week’s #WaterfordWednesday we wanted to talk about what we believe to be the top 3 must haves at your wedding reception! While we are an event rental company, our suggestions revolve strictly around rentals. Of course a DJ & good food are a must for the PARRRR-TAYYY. However, in the event rental world, there are just some things that may not come to mind unless you knew to think about them otherwise. But that’s why we’re here to help!! Now onto the top 3 must haves!


Stylish Chair Option

Okay, we admit our company mayyyy have started out prominently with a crazy good chair cover and sash game but nowadays it’s all about the chair. When meeting with your venue really inquire on the tables & chairs they provide so that you can ensure the chairs they offer complement your design aspects.

The style of chair that you rent really can be the final piece of the puzzle that ties in the full design element of your reception. Here’s two of our favorite options & just goes to show how truly different chairs can make your wedding day look! Sarah Street Photography

Beautiful Linen Option (that touches the floor)

Just like with the chairs, it’s possible that your venue has in stock linens as well. But stop right there!!!!! If you don’t remember anything else from this blog, remember this…. You must verify that the linens you’re being offered are a good quality and touch the floor. You would be surprised the amount of times we hear that clients are being offered linens from venues or that the caterers provide them- which CAN be great but can also be a huge misunderstanding if you don’t ask the right questions. You want to make sure that these tablecloths are full length, to the floor, Without verifying that you run the risk of your “tablecloths” really being an overlay that will show the legs of the table & trust us no one wants that. Use these photos for a reference on what you DO want your tables to look like.Amanda Hedgepeth Photography


Elegant Charger Option

Our final tip for your top 3 must haves would have to be a charger. Chargers are so fun because not only do they come in tons of styles but you can also mix and match them among your tables or maybe give your head table a little something the rest of the guest tables don’t. We love adding a charger, it provides a beautiful place on the table that the guests can arrive to when compared to a table with nothing set.  Below you’ll see some charger options. This is the most fab way to dress up the tables & give it that last little bit of -umph!Alexandria PhotographyEchard Wheeler Photography

Spring 2020 Hot Trend!

Happy Waterford Wednesday y’all! Today we are talking about one of the most trending items we have been seeing- and we’re not mad about it. This blog is about all things chiffon! Chiffon has been super popular for us this last year and the requests keep growing! These can be used in a few different ways and the color options are endless.

Often, we see chiffon used as a decorative runner that can be bunched, draped, woven through centerpieces for a head table or to add some color to a beautiful wooden farm table.Table Design: Inspired Events by Kelly | Photography: Leigh Skaggs Photography

The runners are so versatile they can even be draped horizontally on the table or at a diagonal. Imagination is key when it comes to adding chiffon into your design.

Another way to add some chiffon in your life is to add some chiffon sashes to the chairs of your head table! What a beautiful way to make those people closest to you stand out with a chair design like this!Table Design: Big Top Entertainment | Photography: Kirstyn Marie Photography

Looking for some chiffon but want something a little different than the woven look? Yup! We can do that too! These chairs are tied in a 4 corner knot and accented with a beautiful and dainty floral arrangement. This would be PERFECT for a romantic sweetheart table. Don’t you agree?Table Design: Vivd Expressions | Photography: Katie Nesbitt Photography

Another way to incorporate chiffon in a show stopping way- weave the entire back row of your ceremony chairs. This is sure to take the breath away of your guests AND ensure you get wedding photos back that look like this!Photography: Amanda Hedgepeth Photography

Planning on a fun dessert bar, popcorn bar, or pretzel station?? Adding a colored chiffon runner to that table is a simple way to bring those wedding colors in too.Table Design: Big Top Entertainment | Photography: Kirstyn Marie Photography

It’s pretty obvious why chiffon is one of our favorite linen pieces right?? We weren’t kidding, you can do ANYTHING with them. And the color options are sure to catch your eye. We carry chiffon runners in a multitude of colors including but not limited to: white, ivory, taupe, black, light grey, charcoal, burgundy, hunter green, mustard yellow, coral, navy, dusty blue, dusty rose, mauve, wisteria. Guys I could go on for days!!!

Fall 2019’s Hottest Color- Ice Blue

This year we have seen quite the increase in a new beautiful shade of blue. Ice blue is here and won’t be leaving any time soon! This shade of blue is so subtle that you can use it to cover all your guest tables without wondering if it’s too much color.

Putting extra thought into your linen choice is a great way to incorporate your wedding colors into your reception, whether that’s with your main wedding color or accent color. Letting the main colors of your wedding shine with your floral arrangements allows the accent color to come out in the linen, making for the perfect combo! This wedding at The Cavalier Golf & Yacht Club shows just that.

This photo shows you the beautiful blushes and neutrals in a small, intimate floral arrangement. These flowers paired with the blue linens and gold votives has us in love. The linens used are our matte satin ice blue along with our slate blue polyester napkins, and don’t forget the beautiful gold acrylic chargers!

We love these guest tables paired with our gold chiavari chairs. If you notice the bride chose to switch up the style of her centerpiece into a more modern, dramatic centerpiece on every other table. We love that centerpieces can be different from table to table but still showcase your wedding colors beautifully.

Each guest table looked stunning and the attention to detail was impeccable. The napkin fold is a trifold on top of the chargers really allowing that slate blue to pop in a clean and elegant way.

1 Product, 3 Ways : Chiavari Chairs

It’s Waterford Wednesday!
Today is a “1 Product, 3 Ways” post all about our chiavari chairs! If you’ve been reading the blog or follow along on social media, you know that we got our beautiful gold chiavari chairs in March, and that we also have white chiavari chairs on site at The Water Table! 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!

Chiffon Weave

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 Elizabeth Henson was used to differentiate the bride and grooms chairs from the rest!
