Your sweetheart seating can be designed any number of ways. The trick is to make it your way! This chic second wedding which we like to nickname IDOREDO was held in the couple's home. For their seating we used the bench seating in the great room. However the bench seating was a bit deep.
Our solution: Add pillows. And not just any pillows. We used oatmeal colored and textured fabric. Next we had a wedding band and an engagement band embroidered on them. We finished off the style with vintage beaded and feather pins we found while scouring Cherokee Street. (In St. Louis it's the go to spot for lost and found vintage love)
The result was a unique one-of-a-kind setting, a modern and vintage chic look just like our wedding couple.
The ceremony aisle-should we decorate? Sometimes at the end of designing the reception, a couple will think that perhaps they should do something about the aisle. While the main feature is the wedding couple, looking down the aisle it can seem a bit plain. Perhaps candles are not the answer as our wedding is daytime, not wide enough to pass without lighting the dress on fire, or it's outdoors and battery-run candles don't have enough impact. Hmmmm.
Another idea is to use flowers but they might not be in the budget. At this wedding we decided to use tulle and rafia. The tulle was light enough to blow in the wind and rafia ties added a bit of color and complimented the wedding theme. It was just enough of something added at the last minute. Thank goodness our wedding planner (Shannon Lemp) brings along her bag of tricks to all of her weddings!
Husband and Wife at last. Getting married outdoors just as the summer leaves are changing on the property...sweet kisses all around. The ceremony is captured in a tree lined nook where we added dream catchers and candles in the evening glow. The ground was covered in vintage woven rugs. Still warm enough for the Bride to wear a lacey flowing gown.

Almost every couple starts their consultation with "I want my wedding to be my own". One way Blush Events accomplishes this is by getting to know our couples' style. They rely on my professional advise not only to find vendors that I know to have a reputation for quality and reliability but on how to design their wedding day as a reflection of them. Last fall my couple (I love calling them MY COUPLE :) were avid cyclist. We opted for his and her vintage bikes. Our decision was to keep the original brown bike color because it blended with the fall vintage theme. Of course a wire basket was needed to carry the bouquet
Creating a finished look to your table is always in good taste. For this wedding, the Bride's wedding colors are coral and Tiffany blue which we carried onto the table setting. I chose crisp white linens (included in venue pricing) adding cotton napkins (sophisticated option) with a coral edging. They were finished with a pearl napkin ring, again following other wedding details. The guest gifts were macaroons in a Tiffany blue box with the couple's initials printed on the lid. Now the question...Would you think the napkin ring is the guest gift and wear it as a bracelet for the evening? Inquiring minds want to know.
There's more to a summer themed party than grass skirts and paper plates. We designed a tropical themed tablescape full of interest and special touches. Always remember to layer each element to bring your party vision to life. Our first yum-yum piece is a hand painted muslin fabric runner. The green and gold tropical leaves are so whimsical... how could you resist wanting to sit at this table? Brass candlesticks, some simple some themed are a great mix. From there we designed the table using vintage glasses with had-to-have pineapple straws and monogrammed plates (Sasha Nicholas) and gold pineapples monogrammed on vintage green napkins found at an estate sale. Our centerpiece is two small pineapple cakes flanking an amazingly designed tiered cake. (The Lace Cake). More pictures http://www.myblushevents.com/private-events.html
Styling the bride is just one part of our wedding commitment to our Brides when hired as your wedding planner. When designing and consulting with you for your Big Day we take care to provide expert advise or to find expert resources so your wedding is the perfect day you've been dreaming about. Here we provided advise for the perfect necklace (for this Bride) taking into consideration the dress neckline, personality of the Bride and the design plans for the wedding day.
The season has changed and it's time for those May flowers to get bloomin'. Your guests will enjoy a fresh look to a springtime table setting. We love the season and mixing yellow, gold and teal. For our setting we started with crisp white linens added a grey linen runner to bring it together where we then placed a large golden napkin for a charger. (If your short on the perfect charger try adding a napkin or fabric instead.) We kept the china simple, white with a gold rim then finishing with gold flatware. Blush depression glasses and candlesticks added a bit of vintage and delicate color to the table. A fresh fruit compote in the martini glass will be a bright and festive starter. Of course a spring flower in yellow at each place setting is that little something much appreciated by all your guests. Happy Mother's Day. Photo: Cody Krogman
