You go into a bridal salon, you try on dresses. Some you love, some you cant get out of fast enough. Eventually you find 'The One' & your search is finally over with a major checklist To-Do now crossed off. You wait close to 9 months to see the dress again, much like the amount of time waiting for a baby to mature & suddenly your filled with anxiety all over again about your dress. Did you make the right choice? Will you still like today what you liked so many months ago? What if the vision of your wedding has changed since you started out and as such your dress no longer fits into that vibe? What the hell does it even look like?! Take a step back..... BREATHE. Its going to be O.K. I know, I went through this too.
Let's all just take a moment to really soak in the beauty of what we are looking at here.... Ok, caught your breathe yet? When I came across this gem, thanks to Calligraphy by Jennifer, I literally felt a bit like I got the wind knocked out of me! As regards my own personal wedding, I feel we really delivered one hell of a wedding that was styled to the T. Therefore there really arent many other weddings that I....well....get jealous of. Then I saw this....Hot Damn that entire ceremony spot/set up is AMAZING. Let's chat about why this set up delivers such an impactful punch shall we!
What I am about to say may make me a bit of a cad, but here I we go all the same.... I am over the standard escort cards & more so the same basic ways they are being displayed! My feeling on this particular element of decor, as they are indeed a piece of decor themselves, is that they are often an after thought, something that can be printed out on a card and crudely displayed moving guests onto the next thing. While it is true, escort cards aren't typically something that command attention, however what if you could step out side of the basic & deliver something that will be yet another element that can floor your guest, adding a killer weapon to your decor arsenal?
A sure fire element to drop some jaws & really bring the WOW factor is an often ignored element in decor: Table Setting. Believe it or not, this goes well beyond centerpieces. I wont lie though, this is also an area where the price tag can easily sky rocket. If your on a tight budget, yet you still really want those tables to sing, a bit of leg work & maybe some well crafted dumpster diving might be in order. But I digress... So, whats the big deal right? Just about anyone can pick a simple table cloth, and throw on some white catering plates and call it a day. For some, that might be exactly what your looking for, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that! Just the same, lets head down the rabbit hole shall we, and have a look at various elements that can really bring together an above & beyond look and feel to your wedding.
