Can you believe it’s almost May? I’m excited for some May flowers and of course, all the beautiful weddings!
If you need a little inspiration for your spring wedding planning, hopefully this mood board helps! Some of my favorite aspects to include in spring weddings are bright colors, light fabrics (like this blush runner and this stunningly romantic rosette chiffon tablecloth), and as many flower centerpieces as possible!

What’s your favorite detail for your wedding tablescape? What’s inspiring you this month?

Last month, I joined up with a few other vendors to host a St. Patrick's Day shoot, inspired by Pantone's color of the year: Greenery.
We held the shoot at The Lighthouse - a venue I adore! This styled shoot gives me inspiration for many weddings and even a sweet elopement ceremony and I hope it inspires you too.
I used our gold velvet linens to highlight the actual greenery we used in the shoot and to compliment the gorgeous, mint green invitations as well as the gold accessories throughout the shoot. Don't be afraid to mix different shades of the same color as long as it looks intentional and not like they just didn't match! The pops of gold here helps tie the darker green of the florals and the mint together.
The golden candlesticks next to the gold velvet is a glamorous combination for any wedding - even this intimate ceremony! The velvet tablescape with the gold flatware adds an extra luxurious feel to the setting.
Speaking of tablescapes - we chatted about table runners last week and I love this combination we used here with a mint cloth and sparkly runner to add a little further interest to the table. Mixing linen textures is a great way to tie colors and themes together without looking repetitive.

What is your favorite way to mix linen textures? Would you use two shades of the same color like in this shoot?

It’s officially spring now and if you’re a spring, summer, or fall bride, linens are probably on your mind!
There are a few trends that come back around each year for runners and these are our top favorites for this spring. With these choices, you can’t go wrong!
This has been huge for a while and doesn’t show any signs of slowing down! A chiffon table runner, whether on all the tables or just a head/sweetheart, is the perfect way to bring some added glamour to your wedding without overwhelming your theme! It’s such a versatile fabric that it works for many different styles and can be easily draped and styled to fit any table.
This one is a little less common, but I think it has the most style! Velvet is so luxurious and elegant. It works in every season, depending on the color you choose. For spring and summer brides, the mauve color fits so well – like in this bohemian inspired wedding from Green Wedding Shoes. The maroon, emerald, or navy colors fit well for colder seasons like fall and winter.
This romantic ocean wedding shoot with one of our gauze runners perfectly exemplifies the airy, graceful vibe this runner can bring to your wedding tablescape!
These are our most popular runners and they fit for any season of the year. If your cake table needs a little extra sparkle or if you want to bring in an accent color with our champagne color or silver color (more colors available here), these are perfect! This sweet couple used some of our sequin linens in their wedding and I can't get enough of their pictures! (It was held at the Lighthouse - featured on our blog here!)
These gorgeous, romantic lace runners can bring a rustic vibe to your wedding and add another layer of elegance. I love this French country themed shoot using our runners!
You can also mix and match all of these to create a unique flair for your wedding! If you've used any of these, we'd love to see pictures! Tag us on Facebook or Instagram to make sure we see it.

I had so much fun working with several other vendors a few months ago on this shoot for Champagne Press's 2017 line - we did the linens, of course - and I'm so excited to share these with you!
I touched on invitations in the last post, but I love all the different styles Champagne Press brings to their stationary.
No matter what the style for your wedding is, Champagne Press has an invitation set that fits!
Whether you're going for a modern, romantic, boho, or even classic vibe - there's something for everyone!
No matter what style you're looking for or how customized you want your invitation to be, check out CP's amazing selection!
Your wedding invitation set is the first impression that many of your guests will have with your wedding! You might have a wedding website or send out save the dates (which Champagne Press offers), but your invitations set the stage for the rest of your wedding.
For your thank you notes (or even just daily life), CP also offers stationary done in the same thoughtful, detailed style as their wedding invitations.
They even have a few guides to help you get started, if you're feeling overwhelmed! Check out their website and let me know which set is your favorite in the comments. (I love them all!)

As a wedding vendor, we love getting to see the changing fashions and trends in the industry -- and we've definitely noticed vintage pieces appearing more and more! Bringing in a borrowed or vintage piece to your wedding or event decor is so easy. Thrift stores all over are full of vintage accessories that are ideal for filling your space with charm! It's also a great way to infuse some personality into your gathering by using that are meaningful to you or significant to the history of the event.
Vintage dishes can be easily used as centerpieces, like Bontanica Specialty Rentals did here:
You can also use vintage or borrowed fabric or linens for table runners or decor. For this, we love our natural lace runner, to bring a little rustic vibe into your tablescapes!
If you're planning a wedding, this is the perfect time to have your "something borrowed"! We love seeing everything from grandparents' china to furniture from parents or loved ones (mismatched chairs for the head table are lovely!) being used at a wedding.
A few other ideas to bring a vintage vibe to your gathering include:
Linens in an unexpected fabric: velvet brings back memories of the 60s while sequins invokes the 70s and 80s. Vintage doesn't just mean thrift store!
Antiqued containers: stock up on old iron vases or reclaimed wood boxes for unique centerpieces or surprising decor!
Greenery and faux plants: draping vines and scattered pots add an extra layer of detail to your decor. Fortunately for you brides, decorators, and designers on a budget, these are cheap to buy and so easy to set up. You don't even need to worry about watering them!
For any brides who have used this vintage trend in their own events, how did you capture that feeling in your decor? What pieces did you use?
