PROMO TIME!!

To all the couples still wedding planning during the midst of this craziness, we have a promo just for you!!! Now until April 30th, when you book with us for your 2021 wedding, we will be give you a FREE sweetheart AND cake table linen. We are hoping to help bring light to this dark time for all of us by keeping up the excitement of wedding planning!

We love the sweetheart tables & cake tables probably more than any other tables because this is where you get to add most of your personality! No need to fear about there being too much pattern, too much texture, or that the color is too bright because you only have to cover one table vs all of the guest tables.

Since blue is the Pantone Color of the Year, what better place to incorporate that color than with your sweetheart table?? The possibilities are endless, you can choose blue linens with patterns or texture AKA velvet. Ummm yes please.Design: Lustre Theory | Photography: Molly Lichten Photography | Floral: Kate Fiore Floral | Vintage Rentals: Madhatter Vintage | Linens: Waterford Event Rentals

Deep down I think every bride dreams of a little bit of lace somewhere in their wedding. It just adds such a romantic, charming feel to the design aspect of the wedding. Featured here is actually one of our brand new linens: Princess Lace, I mean what could be better than that?Table Design: Soirees by Lauren | Photography: Caitlin Gerres Photography | Linens: Waterford Event Rentals

There is no better linen to steal the show than this one right here. Our stunning Mermaid Sequins linen gives you all the regal feels with the copper & ivory toned sequins. We love this linen but seeing it get transformed to this extent had our jaws to the floor. Everything about this design just has us thinking sweetheart table. Want to make sure your guests are always looking at you? This linen is sure to do the trick.Table Design & Floral: Fluttering Flowers | Linens & Chairs: Waterford Event Rentals | Photography: Katie Nesbitt Photography | Chandelier Rigging: Stage Right Lighting

Calling all velvet lovers!! One of the biggest trends we have seen closing out 2019 and still going strong in 2020 is the use of velvet! Couples everywhere are loving adding some fun texture to tables whether that’s in the form of a linen, napkins, or runners! Table Design: Sunkissed Events | Photography: Jessica Ryan Photography | Linens: Waterford Event Rentals

One of the most fun tablescapes we’ve seen in a while included our super popular chiffon runners layered with macrame runners. While this is a nontraditional sweetheart table idea, how cool would this be for couples really wanting to step outside the box and bring some Moroccan vibes to the party!Table Design: Astro Events | Photography: Katie Nesbitt Photography | Linens: Waterford Event Rentals

Southern Fall Wedding

Back in the heart of fall we got to take part in a beautiful wedding at one of the most beautiful venues. Nikki and Brennan tied the knot at the Oyster Farm Marina out on the Eastern Shore. Their decor was stunning and so unique we couldn’t wait to get these photos in. This wedding was one to remember for a few reasons! We loveeee that Nikki  wasn’t afraid to play with texture & she used some of these linens to go with the neutral, fall beachy vibe. Her decor included cute little pumpkins, oysters, and our favorite part: COTTON! How cool are these centerpieces?This wedding was so elegant and really left us remembering just how beautiful all the details turned out together. For the cake table Nikki chose one of our new, most popular linens: Belize Natural Nutmeg. To bring all the small details together she paired this with her napkin choice as well.On the deck for cocktail hour, she used a beautiful polyester stripe ivory linen which were topped with cute pumpkins and greenery.Love love love this wedding & can’t wait to see what beautiful ideas are in store for us with Spring wedding season almost here!

Stunning November Wedding

Back in November, we were part of an incredible wedding for such a great couple! Jess & Rob allowed us to work our magic making their wedding day dreams come true. What could be better than a great couple, at a great venue, with GREAT linens??? Welp, nothing! Here’s just a sneak peak of how their reception tables turned out and we are truly stunned at the outcome.What a view this is… We are obsessed with every detail of this ceremony space, from the draping, to the gold chiavari chairs with woven chiffon sashes, to the floral wall, we cannot get over this view.We love the alternating sashes between ivory and taupe. These chairs transformed beautifully to the chairs used at their head table during the reception.Pictured again are the chairs used for the head table paired with one of our hottest new linens: etched velvet! Jess had a vision for her reception space and these linens were sure to be a show stopper.Jess paired the etched velvet linens on her head table and cocktail tables & chose to compliment those using matte satin champagne blush linens for the rest of her guest tables. We loveeeee the classic, romantic look of her reception space with some of those pinks and deep reds added tastefully.Their cake table was a head turner in itself with this floral backdrop and one of our personal favorite linens. The champagne aphrodite linen is a perfect cake table addition and yup, you guessed it! Jess added in some champagne aphrodite runners at guest tables to tie it all in.This would be a great wedding to use for inspiration if you’re looking for a classic, romantic feel with some beautiful neutrals and hint of color.

A Crystal Clear Vision 2020 Recap

Last Sunday we produced and executed our seventh annual A Crystal Clear Vision Wedding Expo! This year the event was held at the Princess Anne Country Club and could not have been possible without the help of the amazingly talented Stage Right Lighting AND our friends at Big Top Entertainment! These two knocked it out of the park giving our participants everything they needed to design some pretty amazing tablescapes. Of course we can’t forget our partner in crime, Antonia Christianson Events that takes care of the floor plan, itinerary, and all the planning in between!

Waterford Wednesday: 1 Linen, 3 Ways

It’s Waterford Wednesday!

Can you believe that we’re already nearing the end of July?! This month & wedding season is completely flying by for us with so many events and design meetings for sweet clients. Today we’ve got a “1 Linen, 3 Ways” post to share, featuring one of our favorite linens – Vintage Floral Lace Overlays! These beauties are so versatile and classy, we always love their looks!

Photographer: Audrey Rose Photography

This beautiful head table from a vintage wedding at Museum of Contemporary Art? This table design is still one of our favorites, and our Vintage Lace Overlays over the Periwinkle Satin full length linens was absolutely gorgeous! Our Vintage Lace Overlays are so adaptable that they aren’t just delegated to round tables, you can use two or three to create the same type of look on long tables too!

Photographer: Erika Mills Photography

This sweetheart specialty linen is the perfect combination! Pairing our Vintage Floral Lace Overlay and Gold Sequin specialty linen, makes for a beautiful sweetheart table. Pairing the Vintage Lace Overlay with any specialty linen is sure to make a great addition to any event! The overlay is always a romantic choice for your sweetheart table.


Photographer: Andrew & Tianna Photography

Last but not least is this bold and beautiful table design that features our black Vintage Lace Overlay! We love a bold design and the black Vintage Lace Overlay paired with a Red Satin linen underneath compliment each other so well! This linen could definitely be transitioned to many different seasons by placing a different satin colored linen underneath it as well!

Waterford Wednesday – Linens for Every Budget

It’s Waterford Wednesday!
As wedding industry professionals, we understand that each and every person has a different budget for their wedding, so it’s important to us to be sure we provide a wide array of linens at different price points. Today we’re going to show you how your event can shine with linens no matter the budget!

Modest

If you have a modest linen budget, there are so many different combinations that you can take advantage of, without going over. Napkins, of course, are always one of our favorite ways to dress up a table at a lower cost! Using one of our basic polyester linens is another way to make your tables look clean and put together without spending a lot of money. If you get lucky with a venue that will provide your base linens you could get away with renting some gorgeous table runners that could bring color and texture to your design at a lower price point as well!

 

Standard/Higher-End

If you’re a bride that has carved out a higher linen budget for your wedding, there is a lot more wiggle room to get creative with your design! The use of full length linens on every table comes into play, as well as the option of utilizing specialty linens on some of your more important tables such as your sweetheart and cake table. Plate chargers are another visually appealing product that you could think about including with a standard/higher-end linen budget!

 

Lavish

If linens are one of the most important components to you at your wedding, there are so many options to make your design look expensive and lavish! The option to use specialty linens on all of your tables comes into play, as well as napkins and plate chargers to bring the whole look together. You can experiment with layering different linens to add another interesting component as well. With a higher budget for linens and products, looking into renting chiavari chairs for your event is another potential possibility that will make the whole room look extravagant and thoughtfully put together!

Waterford Wednesday – Choosing The BEST Napkins

Happy Waterford Wednesday!
Want to add a pop of color or extra detail to your table design? Napkins! Napkins! Napkins! They are inexpensive and can make a huge difference on your tables – small investment, huge impact! We’ve done a couple of posts in the past on our love for napkins, like the different folds you can create, some napkin inspiration, and why they are a great investment! So today we thought we’d discuss another important element of napkins: choosing the right/best kind for your event!

Quality IS Important

It’s true that napkins tend to be on the more inexpensive side of linens, but it’s important to make sure you are getting good quality napkins! While napkins are a beautiful addition to tables, they aren’t just there for looks! The right napkin should make guests feel comfortable knowing that they can clean up after themselves or wipe up any accidental spills. Another good thing about having quality napkins at an event is that they can match the rest of your decor impeccably to add to the atmosphere. Though it may seem like a small detail, knowing you have best quality napkins at your event is vital for the success of your occasion!

What To Look For

When you’re choosing event napkins, it’s important to figure out if you’d like napkins that are strictly for decor or napkins that are both fashionable and functional (we suggest option 2!). Functional napkins like polyester & satin make for easier clean up, while decor napkins (like sequin!) add a luxurious design element, but aren’t very useful when it comes to eating!
