Putting Together the Perfect Reception Table for Your Wedding with BHLDN

Hi Everyone!

Today I’m honored to feature a guest blog from BHLDN! If you are recently engaged or are already married, I’m sure you have drooled over BHLDN’s beautiful wedding dresses and wedding decors.  Their artsy yet romantic wedding decors are suitable for any weddings, and also great for keepsake for your new home 🙂  BHLDN has put together a great post about how to create a perfect reception table for your wedding.  Enjoy!

 

Putting Together the Perfect Reception Table for Your Wedding with BHLDN

Whether it’s a romantic vineyard soiree, beachfront banquet, casual garden party or rustic barnyard bash, the setting of your wedding determines the overall tone for the event. Once you’ve selected the venue and chosen an overall theme for your special day, the next step is finding the perfect décor that will really bring the party to life.

When it comes to impressing your guests, start with the first place their attention will be drawn… your reception tables! Putting together the perfect display may seem overwhelming but with a little help from our friends at BHLDN you can make your tabletops the talk of the party.

 

Romantic Vineyard Wedding

If you’ll be celebrating your big day under the stars, use soft tabletop lighting for your centerpieces to add to the romantic aura of the evening.

Beachfront Banquet

For brides planning a special seaside celebration, it’s all about the texture. Incorporate natural elements like wood and decorations reminiscent of seashells to subtly enhance your surroundings while keeping the overall look fresh and fun.

Garden Party

There is a certain whimsical element to outdoor garden receptions; the flowers, the grass, the open evening air. Make your guests feel as though they’ve just stepped into a fairytale with tabletop décor featuring pops of color and floral details for an added touch of ethereal beauty.

Barnyard Bash

Having your reception in an otherwise “simple” location doesn’t mean you have to forgo elements of glamour in your décor. To keep a barn wedding country chic, incorporate antique tableware and items with rustic finishes for effortless charm.

Top 5 Must-Have Vendors When Getting Married!

Top 5 Must-Have Vendors When Getting Married

::Guest Post by Nicola Joseph::

If you are busy planning a wedding then your very long list of things to do in preparation may well be making you feel a little daunted! This is not surprising – after all planning a wedding is very involved and there are lot of different things to think about. One of the things that you should tick off your list early is booking all of the suppliers. This is important because the really good ones tend to get booked up really early. Here are five suppliers that you can’t do without – get them booked nice and early to avoid disappointment!

 

Photographer

The photographer is a crucial part of the day (and you may want somebody there to film the day too). Photos are a wonderful way of being able to look back on your big day for many years to come. It is also a lovely idea to share the photos online so that your friends and family from further afield can get an idea of how the day was. Book your photographer early as the good ones get snapped up quickly!

 

Caterers

Another important supplier to book early is the caterer. These are the people that are going to serve up delicious food to your guests, so it is vital that you book caterers with a great reputation so that you feel safe in their hands. You will need to choose the menu and this may involve some tasting – so pick your caterer and then go along to sample some of their yummy menu options!

 

Venue

Of course, you are going to need to secure the venue nice and early, so make sure you pick one that you know you will be happy with on the day. Most dedicated wedding venues will allocate you one member of staff who is responsible for helping you with the planning, and it’s a really good idea to build up a great relationship with them as they will be able to help you a lot.

 

Wedding Stationer

You’ll need to employ the services of a wedding stationer who will design some stunning invitations, place names, ‘save the date’ cards… whatever you need. Some people even get their wedding stationer to design the order of service for the church. Have a look at their portfolio and make sure that you like their style before you book them.

 

Florist

Last but not least, you need a really creative florist on your wedding team. The flowers are such an integral part of your wedding day – they are present in the church, at the reception, and even in your hands as you walk down the aisle! Find a local florist and let them know your colour schemes so that they can start working on your designs.

 

If you book your wedding suppliers really early you can be sure that things will run smoothly in the lead up to the big day. Make sure everything is contracted so that nobody can let you down, and remember to thank them afterwards for being a part of your big day!

Shutterfly :: DIY Décor for the Modern Bridal Shower

guest post on The Little Canopy by Shutterfly : DIY Decor for the Modern Bridal Shower

 

If your friend or family member is getting married and you’re throwing a bridal shower, it’s no surprise you want the day to be perfect. After all, the bride is likely so busy sending out save the dates, taste testing cakes, and planning out her ceremony that she hasn’t had a moment’s rest. So how can you make your friend’s shower extra special? By adding your personal touch to the décor. DIY is all the rage these days, and with a little creativity, you can transform a bridal shower from okay to ah-mazing!

 

 

Invites, Name Cards, and Favors

When it comes to the paper goods for your friend’s bridal shower, don’t go plain ol’ store-bought. While that could mean time spent purchasing supplies, stamping, and embellishing cardstock, it can also mean designing personalized bridal shower invitations online. It’s quick and convenient, and with hundreds of pre-designed templates, fonts, and colors to choose from, you can’t go wrong! For name cards, use the embellishments – everything from ribbons to buttons, jewels, and glitter – and bring your creative flair.
A few fun ways to create name cards that will double as favors include:

• Wrap a beautiful package of homemade cookies. Tie it with a ribbon and name tag with each guest’s name.

• Purchase colorful journals. Create embellished name labels and affix them to the front. Then, turn the journals on their side so they stand up.

• Gather enough Scrabble stands and letters. Use them to spell out each guest’s name. If you want to add extra flair, paint the stands in accent colors.

 Table Décor

In addition to name cards and favors, you can spice up your bridal shower table décor with planted herb centerpieces. Attach several cards with recipes using that particular herb – for example, rosemary chicken or thyme-rubbed steaks. Or, add a twist to the classic vase. Find and create a bouquet of silk flowers, beads, and anything else that catches your eye. Another idea is to use the bride and groom’s engagement pictures as centerpieces – print them in black and white and place them in vintage frames for a fun effect.

 Food & Drink

An essential part of any bridal shower is the food, but what if you could use the food to double as decorations? Cookies, cupcakes, homemade popsicles – all of it can be used to add color accents and lend to the mood of the shower. Place them on pretty white or silver trays, and create dimensions by including some flat trays and some tiered. Come up with other creative food displays, such as using glass jars for smaller snack items. And what’s creative food without fun drinks? Make a juice that matches the colors of the shower. Then, serve them in mason jars with decorative name tags and striped straws.

Guests will gush over your ingenuity! No matter the theme of your friend’s bridal shower, by adding your own personal touch to the décor, you’re sure to create a fun environment for the bride to be. And a huge bonus – seeing how much time and energy you put into planning and designing the perfect shower will make the bride feel extremely loved. And after all, isn’t that the whole point?
