Waterford Wednesday: Lasting Trends

Happy Waterford Wednesday, friends!
We’ve got a fun little post for you today all about trends! As we all know, trends come and go – some better than others. Everyone has those few pictures that they look back on and just cringe at the clothing, hairstyle, or makeup choice at the time, right? Well, when it comes to your wedding day (aka one of the best days of your life!), you don’t want to look back on your beautiful photos with those same sentiments! While it’s definitely important to express yourself and your vision for your wedding day, it might also be a good time to think about the future and how you’ll feel about your choices after the fact. Today we’ve rounded up three easy tips to ensure you have gorgeous wedding linens that will remain timeless throughout the years!

Neutrals Are Your Friend!

Trust us, it’s no coincidence that linens in neutral colors are present at almost all weddings! Whether it be the classics like white, ivory, and khaki, or the newcomers – blush and champagne, there is always a little hint of a neutral linen! This is because they really represent a timeless color palette that will look great for years to come! They blend well together, as well as being a nice compliment to any other accent color you may decide on.

Trends Fade!
One important thing to remember about trends is that they almost always fade! Sure, they may make a comeback (hello 90’s choker!), but that’s not always a guarantee! You don’t want to risk choosing a very specific linen or color palette for your wedding just because it’s “on trend,” only to hate it days, weeks, or years after your wedding. Wouldn’t regretting a big piece of your wedding be terrible?! A good tip to follow would be to take a look at weddings over the years. What color palettes or trends do you notice that are still relevant and beautiful today? Go with those!

Think About Accents

Accent colors are also something that you should definitely consider when planning the linens for your wedding! While a floral napkin mixed with an equally bright table overlay may be super on trend right now, chances are that trend will fade, and you may not be too thrilled with your choice in the future. Accent colors are supposed to do just that, accentuate what you already have – give emphasis to it! When thinking about your accent colors, a good idea would be to take our first tip into account (neutrals, neutrals, neutrals!) and add a nice accent on top in the form of a napkin or table runner!

Waterford Wednesday: Trends We Love

We can’t believe it’s already that time of the week again to share some of our favorite things with you! As we gear up for our busiest week/weekend yet (literally!) we thought we’d highlight 2 particular trends that we are LOVING this wedding season.
Since the Met Gala was two nights ago, we couldn’t resist pairing these trends with some fashion as well. . .we definitely can’t let these designer dresses go to waste!

We completely fell in love with Emma Stone in two different hue’s of pink! We’ve been seeing two-toned style A LOT this season, especially with napkins, and we can’t deny that we are huge fans! Often times people think that their linens need to be super uniformed and match, but having two different colored napkins really brings a guest table to life and is an awesome way to incorporate your wedding colors without having to go with full table linens. We just adore the spring “pop” the napkins pictured above provide, and the inclusion of a table runner pulls the whole look together beautifully!

Fresh, crisp, and elegant. These were our exact thoughts when we saw Victoria Beckham walk the red carpet in this amazing white gown. Don’t get us wrong, we love a good chair cover and sash, but we are equally as smitten with our white chairs that we provide through The Woman’s Club of Portsmouth. White is the ultimate neutral, and we’ve seen so many bride’s utilize our chairs to bring their big day to the next level. Our chairs present the fresh, crisp, elegance that drew us to Victoria’s dress as well as provide such a graceful and stylish setting for a ceremony or reception. Of course, these chairs could easily be dressed up with a gorgeous satin or organza sash, but in this case, we are loving them plain!

We’re so excited to see these two particular trends evolve this wedding season and see how each individual bride puts their own twist on them!
