Backyard Wedding Tips

Are you recently engaged and are considering having a backyard tented wedding? If so, please keep these few tips in mind to ensure that your wedding goes just as planned! 

  • Always rent bathrooms. It doesn’t matter if you’re having a wedding of 50 or 200+ guests, you really don’t want that many people going in and out of your house. If you do plan to use your bathroom on top of renting portable restrooms, make sure you stock the bathroom with extra of the essential items. If you have a septic system, get it pumped prior to your wedding. 
  • Have a parking plan. If you don’t have the space to accommodate parking for your guests, consider having a shutter service from a  nearby parking lot. If it’s going to be tight parking on your property or a far walk, consider hiring valet services.  
  • Talk to your neighbors. If they aren’t being invited to your wedding, at least give them a heads up that you’re hosting your special day in your backyard, they may be a bit more lenient on the traffic and noise level. (They may even let you use their property for extra parking!)

2018 Wedding Trends

Posted on: October 20th, 2017

WeddingWire just released what they predict is going to be the new 2018 wedding trends and we love them! Here’s what’s trending and how we can help achieve these looks!  

Navy is the new black.
That’s right, we’re ditching the black tie and trading it in for an elegant midnight blue! With a wide variety of shades of blue linens, we’re sure we have somehtign that will add the perfect amount of elegance to your next event! 

Silver and chrome = the metallics of the moment
We love all things metallics and we’re not saying gold or copper are on their way out but in 2018, many couples are opting for the traditional silver and chromes. From silver and pewter linens to our regency flatware, glass silver chargers and our silver chaiavri chairs, we can make your special day shine! 

A return to formality
Noticing a trend yet? Elegant Midnight blue mixed with silvers and chromes… that’s right, formal is making a comeback! With our high end glassware, linens and chairs, we have what it takes to flip any venue into a formal affair! 

Hanging flowers
We’re obsessed with this look! Instead of putting flowers on the tables, add texture to the ceiling and hang flowers down. Our frame tents are perfect for this look but this can be achieved in out century tent is communicated with us! 

Couples are finding new ways to entertain guests.
Surprise your wedding guests with something they wont expect. Think of creative food, live music or creative interactive photo booths. 

Bring on the texture!
Your wedding guests do pay attention to the details and using texture is a great way to impress them. From using a silk tablecloth or a wax seal on the invitation, these will sure capture the attention of your guests. 

Food displays
Yes we’ll eat our meals if they’re served on regular plates but think outside of the box. Have a raw bar or build something to hang food from. (ex. A wall with pegs for pretzels or donuts.) Serve food in unique glasses such shrimp cocktail in shooter glasses or tomato soup in a coffee cup. 

Go all-out with the desserts.
Cake is expected, but why not mix things up with desserts such as popsicles, custards or ice cream sandwiches? 

Don’t call it “rustic,” it’s all about the “woodsy” look.
Good bye rustic and hello woodsy! The burlap barn look is making a transition to a more “woodsy” look. This look can be achieved with a lot of greenery in the florals and green as the wedding’s main color as well as tons of wooden accents.

We gave each vendor an 8′ banquet table with a floor length linen. In the center of the U-shape layout, we scattered cocktail tables for attendees to sip their beers around.
