LISTEN TO YOUR VENDORS

Your vendors know best! Yes maybe you want tulips for your wedding, but they won’t be in season. Listen to your florist, caterer and other vendors on what’s in season over the summer months. And think textures like linen and burlap.

ROMANTIC GOWNS

Everyone can’t wait to see ‘the dress.’ And romantic gowns are sure to not only set the tone but to set mood too. They are simply dreamy in the right light and the way they flow in the wind and on the dance floor. Get a dress that makes you feel your most beautiful and your guests will not be disappointed.

INCORPORATING TEXTURES

Texture is everything! This is how you take an overall wedding design to the next level. From cane-back chairs, eyelet linens, velvet napkins and lush, organic florals. This will help achieve a much more approachable and polished design to drawing guests in.

FURNITURE VIGNETTES

Creating usable spaces that extend from the wedding design is a great way to keep a relaxed and intentional feel. Beautiful furniture vignettes, layered pillows and throw blankets bring people together and give them a feeling of home. This is especially important for cocktail hour furniture decor.

VENUES WITH A VIEW

From mountains to a lake, the ocean or a vineyard, wow your guests with a stunning backdrop. This can also help you save on your decor budget with a view to distract them.

COLORED SUITS FOR MEN

You don’t have to stick to a black suit for a formal wedding. I love blue or grey for a spring/summer, deep burgundy for a fall/winter wedding or even consider a velvet blazer.

Leave it to this gorgeous Austin wedding to provide proof you don’t have to stick to just one style of wedding. From modern elements, tradition style and garden vibes. Rich in bright colors and textures, this wedding was truly a one of a kind. I loved the champagne drink truck and can we talk about her dress?
