Wedding lounges create an intimate setting for socialization. So, why not give your guests an area where they can get away and watch the entertainment unfold throughout the night? Pillows, a throw rug, candles, uplighting and floral centerpieces will make your lounge complete but also will enhance your theme. Here are some lounges we love:
“Glamping” is a term referred to as glamorous camping. Why would we associate this with weddings? For those couples who think that the average wedding lasts 5-6 hours–think again–weddings are turning into weekend-long events more than ever these days. Couples want their closest family and friends to stay with them to create lasting memories and kick off the start of their marriage. Think about having an outdoor reception, luxury tents for your guests to stay in and lots of food and games to keep the entertainment going all weekend. Here’s some ways you can add a few glamorous touches to your wedding:
As you start heading off for your Labor Day weekend plans (we hope you’re doing something fun!), we just wanted to sneak in one last inspirational summer style shoot that came to us from a group of talented Missouri vendors. We were huge fans of the whole nautical theme this summer, and this shoot is a perfect example of doing the whole seaside-wedding thing without going overboard (pun completely intended).
Have a great long weekend – we’ll be back next week with lots more wedding inspiration to kick off fall!
We’re so sad to say it, but summer is coming to an end (we can’t believe it, either!). We wanted to take a look back at some of our favorite beachy, nautical, and seaside wedding and style shoot details from the past few months for all you future summer brides!
A detail that can often be overlooked is lighting. While it may not seem like the most important element of your decor, it sets the mood for your reception. It goes without saying that you should avoid any overhead florescent lighting. If that’s all your venue has, ask them if you can bring in candles, string lights, or chandeliers. The lighting at your venue may already be exactly what you want, but if not, there are some ways you can improve the ambiance.
1. Hang a sheer backdrop against a plain wall with twinkle lights.
2. Rent or purchase chandeliers.
3. Drape white lights in a crisscross pattern with a simple chandelier in the middle.
4. Hire a professional light technician to create a spectacular design that fits with your theme/style.
5. Hang string lights from four posts to create a tented feel.
