AWP Bridal Show ~ 1.26.14

29 Jan

Thanks to all the brides who came out to visit us this past Sunday! We had such a great time meeting you all and are excited to be working with some of you already! We hope you enjoyed it as much as we and all of our fellow vendors did. We are proud to be part of the Athens Wedding Professionals network. Their website is a wonderful tool to start the wedding planning process as well as see past Athens weddings!

Here are just a few photos of our booth, showcasing a beautiful custom farmhouse table and gold chiavari chairs provided by our friends at Oconee Events and lovely purple and yellow spring florals in contrasting white bud vases by Gardenia Floral Design. Oh, and let’s not forget the linens. Lush, textured confetti overlays in champagne and honeydew covered our highboys and a neutral walnut bengaline runner topped the table, while wisteria lamour chair sashes brought it all together. Special thanks to Connie Duglin Linens for providing these gorgeous finishing touches. This table is just one example of what we can coordinate for you to make your wedding vision come together.

Rehearsal Dinners: A Twist on the Traditional

18 Sep

Rehearsal Dinners:
A Twist on the Traditional

When planning your rehearsal dinner, couples may want to consider switching it up. These days, many couples are using the rehearsal dinner as an opportunity to spend more time with wedding guests as they prepare for the BIG celebration to come.     

Consider some of these options as you begin to lay out your plans:

1. Have lots of out of town guests that you feel the need to invite? Host a smaller rehearsal “dinner” for only members of the wedding party and immediate family (rule: If you walk down the aisle, you have dinner).  Then follow the dinner with a open invite to all guests for a desert reception and “meet & greet” (The Melting Point private area is a perfect location – drinks & entertainment in one!).

This allows out of town guests more time to travel, or enjoy dinner the area of your wedding location.   It also allows more quality time for the bride and groom with their wedding party, immediate family but also more time for mixing and mingling with other guests later that evening (that you may miss in the whirlwind of the wedding).

2. Consider a Theme!  Does the groom love Italian, Mexican or Chinese food?  Consider a completely themed dinner buffet.  Jazz up your Caribbean themed meal with a steel drum band, or a low country boil with a Zydeco trio.  Pizza and beer? No problem!  The days of stuffy seated rehearsal dinners are over.

3. Switch up your time.  If you’re planning a Sunday wedding, it’s sometimes difficult to schedule your rehearsal (let alone your rehearsal dinner) on a busy Saturday night.  Think about a rehearsal brunch, or lunch.  The wedding party and wedding guests can then use Saturday night as an opportunity to relax or go out on the town.
