Sweetheart Table Finesse
What makes your sweetheart table special? 10 ways to add to your wedding experience.
Checklist for designing your sweetheart table:
1. Be visible to guests.
That might mean using a riser and don’t forget to add a riser step.
2. Keep flower height below your face.
Add lush greenery around the perimeter, your bouquet on its side
Design a theme wall or arch such as a gentle waterfall or a roses wall
4. Table linens
Choose a linen design that sets you apart from the guest tables-simple or Wow!
5. Table shape
Either a small table or half circle works well.
Be comfortable with a velvet love seat, unique chairs or a bench
7. Place setting
Use your wedding china
Set your place with one of a kind glasses
Repurpose vintage design items
Nothing says romance like soft candlelight
On your wedding day keep your spirit light and ready for the unexpected. This amazing couple was photo bombed by the family farm chickens. A little boho friendly photo opt is definitely not planned but so FUN. We just styled around our cluckers and captured the whimsy spirit of the day.,,,making memories all day long. @codykrogmanphotography @kinkhairsalon @myblushevents
Luck of the horse shoe for your country chic wedding. Gold mason jars hold shades of pink and red blooms-this DIY bride had an idea of a run for the roses. To bring the red pop to the dessert table she smartly had a few red velvet cupcakes made and a few with light pink icing. We love the simplicity of the cake which stands out among the other colors showcasing her lucky day shoe. We thoroughly enjoyed coordinating this wedding on the family property. @codykrogman
How romantic!!! Today's modern bride is not the bride in the original movie Father of the Bride with Elizabeth Taylor. Bride's get married after their first child is born or after they have shared their lives together for many years. Whatever your love story, your wedding day will be a special and perfect day. The wedding tradition to not let the Groom or Bride see each other until the alter has morphed into the First Look. This has been created to give the couple a way to have a wedding moment that just belongs to them. This sweetheart "peek" is a very special wedding day moment just shared between the Bride and Groom and sometimes the wedding party hidden behind the building. Love all around! Cheers to the next 60 years. @codykrogman photography Published: Wedding Wire real weddings 2017.
Wedding trends ebb and flow but what remains always is the fact that all Brides are beautiful. Our bride chose to wear a blue chiffon halter top dress with multiple soft layers ending in a gorgeous train. Her wedding look is packed with one of a kind design. Blush to dark blue to teal paper flowers showcase her ceremony altar. The aisle design mimics her colors adding texture continuing the whimsy and wedding look she asked for My Blush Events to design. The bouquet needed to be large enough to compliment her ceremony design, and as you can see it is popping with style and perfection. The veil was chosen as a soft accent, not to be the main focal point but as an enhancement to the Bride's look. @codykrogman @flowersandweeds @theenchantedbride @pkpaperart @milleniumproductions @makupbyElin
There's so much style and design that encompasses the wedding day. The wedding couple is of course the main event! Finding the best bling for you hair means taking into consideration your hair style, dress, veil and most importantly the size of the added accent piece. I've seen too many brides with a large enough hair piece for two heads. Unfortunately not all wedding boutiques understand balance and style when it comes to choosing the best option for you. Ask your wedding stylist or wedding planner for her advice. You'll be stunning for the big day with all eyes on you. @ClarkWoolsey and @CodyKrogman
My Bride is a community volunteer who works to protect and save songbirds. She wanted her wedding table design to reflect her passion. My Blush Events helped her create bird cage table top designs with ribbon and birds in bright colors. This DIY design incorporated several silk and natural elements keeping her wedding day full of whimsy and passion. @sevengablesinn @clarkwoolseyphotography
As the planning and details come together on your wedding day, take a moment to review the little details to create a more beautiful setting. Here we have chosen dark gold and silver napkin rings for the head table. They are actually part of the couple's wedding registry from Sallie Home in Ladue, MO. Setting your wedding table with the dining pieces you will use in your new home together is another way My Blush Events keeps your wedding day look Absolutely Yours!
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!
