Many couples don’t realize how many details go into planning a wedding. With resources like Pinterest and Weddingwire the ideas are limitless and a lot of couples are getting into the craftiness of DIY. DIY can be a fun and a really personalized way to incorporate little touches throughout the different events, but I won’t lie- unless you are Martha Stewart, multiple DIY projects will be overwhelming and very time consuming.
Just like hiring a DJ to handle the entertainment or a Photographer to capture the day, hiring a rental company will take the stress off of you and your family and ensure that the vision you have for the wedding will come to life. Rental companies can help from little details like a cake stand or decorative easel to a grand entrance of luxurious draping and dramatic lighting.
Choosing your venue will set the tone for your vision. Maybe you like the idea of a rustic feel so a barn venue would be a good start or maybe something grand and more formal so a historic ballroom would be a better choice. But the venue will just be your starting point to building the overall look of the reception. You can then go over the top with rentals or you can keep things simple with just little touches through out the reception. Budget is always a factor for each couple but even on a limited budget you can make a big impact.
Recently we had the pleasure of partnering with Total Events to create a romantic, winter wedding for Jennifer and Will, right here at Longfellows Restaurant. Everything about this wedding was amazing! Consider incorporating something different into your entry area or with your head table. A fun, sequined tablecloth or tufted loveseat could be just the thing that gives your day that special touch!
