Wedding Lighting

One important aspect of a wedding that can often be overlooked by the bride and groom is lighting. Spending some time on this detail can really leave an impact, drawing the attention of guests and adding drama to any setting. Radiant chandeliers or twinkling canopy lights can be the perfect finishing touch to a soft, romantic wedding. Looking for something a bit more contemporary or urban, overhanging wired light bulbs can be a wonderful choice. Remember, with whatever route you go, getting a little creative and choosing the right lighting can really contribute to and transform your wedding décor, creating an unforgettable ambiance.

The unique shapes give your wedding the perfect chic vibe. So why not try incorporating this awesome trend into your wedding day with invitations, centerpieces, backdrop, or even your cake.

Have a Seat: Table Number Ideas

One of the first things your guests will see or search for when arriving at your wedding reception are the table numbers. They are just as much a part of your decorations as they are a guide for guests. Check out these creative and unique table number ideas to show off your design style while leaving a personal touch.

Use photographs of you and husband as children to correspond with a certain age or year. Some photos might be awkward or embarrassing, but your guests will love it.

Incorporate your love story. Use engagement photos and/or the dates of your first kiss, first date, engagement, wedding day, etc. to add sentimental value for your guests.

This is a fun way to get your guests involved. Instead of numbers, use songs titles and their artists. When their table song plays, they have to get up and dance. This will help break the ice and probably provide a few laughs.

Another great way to get guests involved by having them personalize your table numbers for you. Have them leave messages that you and your husband will then read on the corresponding anniversary. This is an awesome way for you to look back on your big day.

Calligraphy adds a simple yet sophisticated feel to your centerpieces and table.

Luxe Outdoor Reception Lounges (2 of 2)

Earlier this week, we shared some seriously cool outdoor lounge areas to make your reception unforgettable.  And today, we’re jumping right back in with even more tips and inspiration for how to create your own!

4Whenever possible, use rugs to define your seating space—they’re the simplest way to communicate to guests to relax and get comfy.  Make sure to place plenty of tables throughout for folks to set down drinks and hors d’oeuvres during conversation.

extra 5 if neededWe love this more casual (rustic-chic, if you will!) set-up.  Covered hay bale benches wind back toward standing tables and warm lighting creates a super cozy atmosphere.  Vintage-style lanterns, an oversized chandelier, and string lights in the branches all work together to make the place glow.  The more you can vary the level of the lighting you use (some high, some low and anywhere in between), the better illumination you’ll have well into the evening.

6So striking.  A faux fireplace helps this outdoor lounge space feel super homey and cozy, while open shelves with sparse candles define the space and allow the eye to travel all the way to the mountains on the horizon.  The antler chandelier and mirror over the mantle draw your eye up, and weathered furniture create the illusion of being right at home—the ultimate feat in making such a wide open space feel intimate.
