Invitations and Bouquets:

Invitations are one of the first impressions about your event.  Adding your own personal touches can give your guests some ideas on what to expect from your wedding.

The intricate details in this bride’s invitations by Ceci New York offers an elegant French inspired setting in soft pale pink with a gold lace band.  To make it extra special, they added in a traditional wax seal with Asian characters in the double happiness sign symbolizing their Asian heritage.  They even created personalized US Postage Stamps!

Chair Covers and Specialty Table Linens:

Add a bride and groom chair as a special design touch! (And it helps the guest to identify where you’re seating!) Or, if you’re on a budget, spend a little extra on some specialty linen for tables that everyone will be paying attention to.  These would include sweethearts or head table, cake and dessert tables!  Shown below is our signature Carolyn Lace Collection chair covers and Vintage Lace Nude table linen overlay.

Don’t forget the lighting including some on the table. From uplights and pinspots to  washes and gobo patterns, lighting does play a pivotal role in creating the mood for your space.  Candle votives are always a beautiful way to light up a tablescape for a intimate personal touch.
