Manzanita Madness

Posted on September 25, 2013 by  Miss Romantic Bride   //   Comment

Manzanita trees can be the dramatic touch you’re searching for in your centerpieces or name card table.  With the addition of small flowers laced upon the branches or crystal beads draping them, these trees can embellish your tabletops and surely charm your guests!

Centerpieces to set the Mood

Posted on July 28, 2012 by  Miss Charming Bride   //   Comment

Centerpieces are very important – they can either make or break a table’s style and ambiance. Whether you are doing short or tall centerpieces, don’t over-do-it! More doesn’t always mean better. Your guests will need elbow room to eat, talk, and be able to breathe.

In addition to the centerpieces, don’t forget that the tables hold several pieces of silverware, glasses, favors (at times) and other tidbits. Here are some great ideas for round, long tables, outside or inside weddings!

Have the centerpieces reflect YOU…and of course your fiancé too!

for the love of candles

Posted on June 14, 2012 by  David   //   1 Comment

Everyone knows I love candles!  The more the merrier and the more it reflects drama and creates and ambiance. There are three types of candles to have for your wedding…votive being the smallest, pillar being the thickest yet it comes in a variety of heights, and tapered which is the tallest and thinnest.  My preference is actually a combination of all three on a table.

Now, here are two tips that very few brides ever think about.  First, you need to check with your venue for the fire restrictions to see if open flames (such as candles) are even allowed.  Every state, county and town has their own individual rules, so find that out first before you buy your candles.  Second, don’t over-fragrant your room with candle scents because the power of the scents can affect, or at worst ruin, the flavors of the dinner.

You Light Up My Life

Posted on June 8, 2012 by  Miss Detailed Bride   //   1 Comment

Candles, candles, and more candles!  That’s exactly how I envision my reception.  It’s being held in a large ballroom, so I imagine the lights turned down low, with the room lit by nothing but candlelight.  Everywhere you turn, I want you to see the twinkle of candles…in the centerpieces, on the stage, and even scattered along the cookie tables.  This will set the ambiance for our reception, and illuminate the ballroom with elegance.  My sophisticated vision includes tall candelabra centerpieces to fill up the room and light up each table, as well as different size candles lining the stage that will hold the head table.  Some girls go for bling, but in my eyes, there’s no such thing as too many candles!
