Real Wedding: Hollywood Inspired Wedding in Alexandria (Part 1)

28 02 2011

Check out how cute this couple is from the Sneak Peek post a while back.

You can get a great look without busting the budget by strategically choosing elements with the most impact. This couple wanted to evoke a Hollywood glam style to their wedding, with the primary colors being red, gold and white with lots of sparkle. Check out the linens we chose.

Clockwise from top left: Dark Red Satin Napkins, hotel's Ivory Damask (dinner tables), Burgundy Pintuck (sweetheart table), Champagne Romance (all other tables), Ruby Ribbon Swirl Taffeta (candy buffet)

Tip: To save on budget without straying from the design concept, we used the Ivory Damask tablecloth the hotel provided but accented it with rented Dark Red Satin napkins. To highlight the sweetheart table, we did the reverse and rented Burgundy Pintuck tablecloth and the hotel’s ivory napkin.

Davinci’s Florist did a great job coming up with a centerpiece design using crystal stands with a ball of red roses on top and a few white feathers with strings of crystals dripping from the flowers. All the crystals reflected the surrounding candlelight beautifully. We had also used half of the centerpieces to line the aisle at the church. Got to love double duty!

This was a pretty bland hotel ballroom and the lighting really helped to give the room some depth. Davinci’s designed this amazing canopy around the elevated sweet heart table. It was draped in white fabric with roses and feathers at the corners, and a curtain of crystals were hung from the top on all sides.
