Wedding Décor and Details You Can’t Live Without!
One of the questions we are most often asked by our clients is “How do we design a wedding day that is unique to who we are?” Our answer- it’s all in the details! Incorporating personal style and well thought out details into your wedding design is the absolute best way to show your guests who you are as a couple and what this day means to you. From your color palette selection, guest favors and even custom cocktail offerings, designing your day to be as unique as you are just takes a little creativity and of course- details. Here are a few of our favorite wedding day details you simply can’t live without.
Custom Designed Stationery
Whatever you do, don’t overlook the opportunity to wow your guests months before your wedding day! The first details your guests will come in contact with are your save the dates or wedding invitations. From the moment the envelope arrives in the mail, this will set the stage and give your guests an idea of what’s in store for your big day.
Custom Cocktails and Bar Offerings
Because who doesn’t love a great cocktail? Creativity comes in all forms when designing memorable details for your wedding day and signature cocktails are a fabulous way to show off a little of your personal style. Maybe you and your fiancé met over margaritas while vacationing in Mexico or maybe you like to have cocktail making competitions for a Friday date night. Whatever drink you fancy, be sure to include a couple favorites when designing your cocktail hour and reception bar offerings.

With endless combinations of color, pattern and texture, your place settings can easily become a guest conversation piece all of their own.

Out with the old and in with the new! Now don’t get me wrong, we love a beautiful towering wedding cake- which can really be the centerpiece for design in your wedding. But come on, who doesn’t love a creative display of assorted sweets like donuts! After dinner, your dessert offerings can really be as creative as you are. Consider adding your favorite sweet treats to the menu that will leave your guests nothing less than satisfied.
