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

July 2020 Styled Shoot

It’s Wednesday! Woo hoo!!! We are halfway through this week and getting closer to another scorching hot weekend! Just two weeks ago we were asked to be a part of an incredible styled shoot! We knew this shoot was going to be one for the books because the vendor list is off the chain- but also because the linens they chose are TO. DIE. FOR.

It was good to get out and have some fun with a styled shoot and to see how beautiful everything came together. Y’all, we literally received these photos TODAY and because we can’t wait any longer to post them we’re blogging them!!!Are you obsessed yet?? This features a handful of our brand new products and we are THRILLED with how these photos turned out. These yellow flowers add the perfect bright and fun pop of color to the tablescape. We love seeing closeup shots of this linen because it gets more and more beautiful the closer you get to it, the detail, the slight shimmer, the pattern- gives us all the feels.We have no words. When something is just that stunning, you let it do all the talking for you! And can this cake design get any more beautiful?!The beauty and brains behind the operation! Sarah and Jacklyn thank you soooo much for letting us be a part of this shoot! These photos are incredible and we are so thankful that you thought of us to join in on this magic!
