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

While this one has been popular for the last two years in the wedding world, it’s not showing any sign of slowing down!!Tara Liebeck PhotographyKirstyn Marie Photography

#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

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.

Waterford Wednesday: Trending Colors for 2019

Us Waterford gals have had this forever LOVE for all shades of blue!  It just so happens to be one of the most trending colors for 2019 and we are beyond excited to be featuring Slate and Ice Blue linens on the blog this week!

Breathtaking and quite sophisticated to say the least, both Slate and Ice Blue are a MUST for all events seeking to highlight a new trend that sets your design apart from the rest.  What’s unique about these two shades of blue is its universality.  Whether you are planning an event in the bleak, cold winter or in the heat of August, Slate and Ice Blue prove to be quite sensational focal points for your entire event.

We are certain you will agree with us, once you check out these favs from a previous wedding on the Eastern Shore at Mimosa Barn:

WOW!  I mean, come on!  Doesn’t this just take your breath away?  In combination with the natural greenery and browns, it is quite obvious this is going to be a lasting trend that continues over the next few years.  Classic and elegant with a touch of simplicity, this color palette adds vibrancy and a sense of “airiness” to the decor of the the entire event.  Sometimes, harsh hues with heavy decorative pieces leave the guests and the overall atmosphere feeling uncomfortable.  That’s exactly what you don’t want to happen!  With this design and these linens, you won’t have to worry about that at all!

If you are wondering what pops of metallic you could incorporate into this design, we suggest touches of gold.  This could be accomplished by renting chargers, silverware, candle holders, or making name cards.  Any of these are cost-effective solutions to dress-up your event while pairing with various greeneries as well as Slate and Ice Blue.

What do you think?  Would you change it up from the common blush or maroon for one of the newest trending colors of the year?
