Your event should be your own. It’s all in the details they say! But what will that mean for you when it is your time to plan out a unique event? Here are some fun tips to consider while perusing all of the endless options with your planner:
WHEN CONSIDERING A VENUE: LOOK UP
Every stop to see the ceiling. Most likely not if you’re like the rest of us. A detail often overlooked, would be choosing an event with high ceilings. The high ceilings ensure an elevated look for your event and also encourage the overall feeling of more space!
SET THE MOOD: WITH A LITTLE LIGHTING
Lighting changes everything. With some creativity different effects can be added to the ambiance your event. You can showcase your style and décor in some amazing ways illuminating your night using a multitude of media. Some examples include LED chandeliers, faux foliage, under/up lighting (highlighting), indoor outlines, color wash or outdoor candle light.
CENTERPIECES: THINKING OUTSIDE THE FLORAL
The centerpieces on each table are a classic piece of event décor we all know and love. In that case, its ok to tweak the traditional option of floral everything. Considering choices such as candles, branches, feathers, lamps, crystals, globes, bird cages, fruit displays photos, ornaments and Mason jars. Perhaps varying the heights of the objects. Keeping it interesting only adds to that wow factor! The sky is the limit. So, go forth and have fun with centerpieces style!
THE BAR: SIGNATURE COCKTAILS PLEASE
In lieu of offering an open bar choosing to offer a signature cocktail at your wedding or event is a great way to combat some of the budget constraints. Forgoing a cash only option may be a great way to alleviate any added expense on your guests who have already given a generous gift. Cocktails have made a comeback in today’s bar and restaurant scene. Your planner can help you select a signature cocktail that will compliment your theme adding another element of pure style to the occasion. It’s a win win!
