With 6 months to go we are getting to crunch time where it is all about narrowing in on the little details… linens, flowers and reception decor. When we first started I had a good idea on what I wanted my color palette to be, but really didn’t know how I was going to bring all the colors together while keeping the feel of the reception elegant. Right now neutrals and pastels are very trendy in flowers, so it was difficult for me to find the inspiration I was looking for in bold jewel tones. With a lot of time spent on pinterest and wedding websites I dreamed up my inspiration.
I pulled pictures of inspiration so my florist could see the look and color scheme I was after. After nailing down the color scheme we talked about the types of flowers I loved and wanted to see incorporated into the arrangements … and let me tell you, I had no idea there were so many types of flowers. Since I didn’t exactly have my heart set on one particular type of flower we were able to map out several different types that would feature colors I loved while keeping the arrangements in our price range.
Next was tackling the linens. Featuring bold colors in my flowers, I wanted to keep the linens neutral so they would really pop. We took several different selections to our reception venue so we could get a feel for what the linens would really look like in the setting. I am glad we did this because the linen we originally liked we ended up not choosing because it looked too dark with the reception lighting. I think I am most excited about the sequin runner AAA Rentals & Event Services was able to track down for us, this will add an element of texture and elegance on a few of the key tables.
Everything is starting to come together and I couldn’t be any happier with how the reception is shaping up for our special day in August.
Here is a sneak peak with what are we are working with…
