Whats what for Weddings in 2014…!

Were back and Happy to be out of hibernation! We have made some changes,  and we hope you like 🙂  It has definitley been awhile and we are back with LOADS  to dish on the latest trends and styles  for Weddings  in 2014.

As you all know its officially Wedding Season.  With that being said,  if you are already in the process of planning your wedding you may be overwhelmed with all the wedding pop up ads, and confused as to which pinterest board speaks to your wedding dream day. Here is a straight to- it guide on whats in for 2014, in the areas that matter most when it comes to walking down the aisle.  What know more?! Well keep reading. It gets better!

Ceremony

The most important part of the wedding, but often times overlooked when it comes to making a statement on the Big Day.  Trending this year when it comes to ceremonies is the  couples recessional .  Some might say what the hell is the recessional and what does that have to do with the ceremony? The recessional is the first moment after the ceremony the Bride and Groom introduce themselves to world as a married couple. Instead of the traditional flower petals or rice toss try something your guests wil truly remember. Like dazzling Sparklers or  be different and do something that symbolizes something special like the first time you met at the bike park with a bike line recessional! Whatever you decide remember Bold is Better!  Another ceremony statement for you to think about.. Guess.. you know what Im going to say.. that;s right Bridesmaids dresses! That washed up tradition of  all your Bridal party wearing the same ugly taffeta dress is out the window. Keep it Chic n Unique with ever so popular ombre or two tone brides maids dress. And our personal favorite the very non- traditional idea of totally bridal gowns but with the same color tone. Ladies if your Bridal parties body types are completely  different  this option is the Best FIT for them.

Reception

The most anticipated part of the Wedding , the good ole reception. So many important elements when it comes to planning a memorable wedding reception. One of the most important things to remember is SIGNAGE. We are not just talking about signs to point out the direction of the bathroom ( which is also important) but signage that will represent the theme or mood you want to express. This year I have seen so many creative ways to display guest seating assignments and instructions for beautiful guest book tables. I’m absolutely in love with the escort envelope wall!  And of course those beautiful hanging mirror signs.  All of these elements are perfect ways to add a little something extra special to build those lasting memories 🙂

Decor

Yeessss, over the top,  gaudy wedding decor is BACK!  From lux rental pieces like mirror top tables, gold crystal candelabaras, and extravagant floralscapes,  all perfect decor elements for a signature wedding. For those with a more contemporary taste, architectural centerpieces; with a  focus on shapes and height,  are becoming more  and more of an industry trend. Dare to be Different folks!  And for the for those vintage rustic brides out there, the Tuscan table is EVERYTHING when it comes to the perfect country wedding design. My favorite design element this season is the luscious wedding table flower garland. A little pricy but what better way to get the WOW-FACTOR your are looking for then a  anaconda arrangment of goregous blossoms running across your tabletops! (Stay tuned for more blogs tips on how -to make your own garland and accomodations for weddings on a budget.)

Food & Beverage

When it comes to what’s on the menu and what’s to drink its all about appealing presentation and mouthwatering flavor’s! Couples are no longer using that standard hotel bartender. Unique companies are popping up all of the place, that strictly specialize in custom bar designs and signature drink menus catered to the Bride and Grooms personal taste. What would your signature drink be called or taste like ?

COUNTRY FUN WITH THE PRATT FAMILY !

Last weekend we had an amazing time coordinating the 2nd annual Pratt Family Reunion. The concept for this event was a Country Rustic picnic using Red and White plaid Gingham. And we got to use our favorite, yep Mason jars! for the centerpieces. Held at the historical Franklin Park Zoo along with a reception dance held at the Adam’s Inn Hotel this 2day event was loads of work but lots of fun! With family in attendance from all over the country, we were happy to see all the smiling  faces and fond memories that were being created. Activities ranged from our custom photo tree, a Spades and Whist Tournament, Basketball, Tennis and of course every southern family’s favorite the Electric slide! Check out our pictures below from this wonderful family event!

Venue Spotlight : Adams Inn Hotel

We had the opportunity to work with the amazing Adams Inn hotel for our latest event this past weekend.  The Adams Inn Hotel located in Quincy, Mass over looking the Neponset river, is one of the coziest hotels in the area, also near the cities most popular attractions. We utilizied the beautiful Quincy Room for our 60 person Red and White Reception Ball. The staff at Adams Inn Hotel were extremely friendly and very accomodating. Our event was fully equipped with a Rockin Dj and Photography Backdrop. Our guests were extremely pleased with the serene atmosphere of the hotel and enjoyed the delicous food provided by The Adams Cafe.  Event Coordinator Janet Batson was easy to work with and made all of our arrangements realistically possible. The hotel reservation specialist Valeria Wilkinson made it simple for our guests to reserve their rooms for the weekend, she even provided everyone with a special code to provide for booking. The hotel also offers a free shuttle service for guests to and from the airport. Which was great for all of our out of town guests. With amenities like their seasonal outdoor pool, fully equipped fitness center and the beautiful outdoor Gazebo, The Adams Inn Hotel is ideal for any Wedding, Special Event or Intimate function ! 

Take a sneak peek of our Pictures from the Red and White Ball at the Adams Inn!

Descions Descions….

S.H.E. Event Planning is gearing up for an upcoming 3 day Family Reunion! One of the events for this Reunion is A Red and White reception Ball for friends and family.  As we get closer and closer to the event, its time to make some final descions on what centerpiece concepts to create for this elegant affar. I have narrowed it down to three centerpiece ideas but Im still struggling with how to combine each concept into one Unique centerpiece. Maybe you can help me! Here are the designs  I would like to recreate and combine. Feel free to leave any ideas or suggestions you may have.  Thanks in advanced 🙂

rose-wedding-centerpieces-1 I love this floral water design, but we are not able to use buring candles at the venue site. Any ideas for candle subsitutions.  Wondering if LED candles would give off the same affect?

rose bulbLove these single rose Buds! Absolutely adorable!

ocean bowl rose  I have a dozen of these fish bowl vases I would like to use for my centerpieces.  Wondering how I could create height with my floral arrangement without taking away from the vase itself. Or should i submerge my flowers in water?
