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.

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.
