Ceremony Magazine San Diego 2015 | It’s All About the Details

It’s All About the Details

By Krystel Tien, Couture Events

Many of our clients come to us for styling advice and we always say, it’s all about the details, the little personal touches that make the wedding special and memorable for your guests. Here are a few tips for the details that you must not forget while creating your wedding day.

Welcome Area
First impressions are everything! This entrance area sets the mood for the entire event and should be creative and inviting. Personalize your sign-in station with an item that your guests will sign that can later be put in your home. (Remember it doesn’t have to be a book. One of our couples loves the great outdoors so they had everyone sign a bench that they sealed and put in their garden. Forevermore the names of family and friends will be in a very special place.) Have champagne or a signature drink waiting for guests when they arrive. Last but not least have photos of the two of you, your favorite quotes, or art in frames or on canvas for guest to look at when they first arrive.

The single best way to transform any venue from ordinary to extraordinary is through lighting! This year creative lighting will take precedence in the wedding decor and budget. We will be seeing more chandeliers, market lights, twinkle lights, and candles, all of which help create an incredible ambiance for your guests to enjoy.

Select specialty linens for your wedding style and theme. Too many times we have seen clients use the linens provided by the venue, only to have it look like many of the other weddings that have taken place there. Get creative with your linen choices; this is a place to bring in texture, patterns, and color! Have fun with it and if you can’t do it for every table (because of budget) then at least do it for your specialty tables: sweetheart or head table, cake & desserts table, and sign-in table. It will make a difference in the overall look of the wedding.

Place Settings
When guests take their seats, the details should continue, from the napkin to the chair and everything in-between. The menu is a great way to express exactly what you want to say, use the back of the menu as a thank you note or put your favorite quote here, something your guest can take home and enjoy long after the wedding. Then alternate placing them face up and face down so you make sure guests see both sides. Even the china and glassware can be chosen according to your theme and style.

Grand Exit
The grand exit is becoming more and more extravagant, biodegradable confetti, sparklers, glowing balloons, glow sticks, sky lanterns, etc. While the rules from venues get more and more strict the allure for the grand exit only grows. Many of our clients are longing for BIG send offs! We are suggesting instead of throwing things into the air, why not leave in an unusual way- by boat, hot air balloon, or vintage car. This will be the lasting memory for your guests.
