Fall Inspiration | Pumpkins

Can’t have Autumn without pumpkins now can you!? How about a fall inspired wedding? If your wedding style involves a seasonal touch, these pumpkins infused into centerpieces, aisle decorations, and venue details can make a statement without being cheesy. A few of our favs – pumpkin guest sign in, escort cards/favors, and monogrammed pumpkins!

Floral Recipes | Summer Blooms

Whether it’s bold blooms, unique elements {like herbs or veggies}, or an eye-catching design, we’re always excited to see the creations florists dream up for our clients. One of our latest favs – this bridal arrangement from Bluegrass Chic. It was the perfect combination of southern staples and summertime florals!

Table of the Month | Transitioning into Fall

It’s time to continue on our ‘Table of the Month’ series. Hooray! September is sort of an odd month…it officially becomes Fall, but it’s still hot as can be here in Florida. Since it’s somewhat of a “transition” month, we wanted that to translate into our table designs. By incorporating a rich color, such as marsala, with a light blush hue, we were able to do just that! Flowers by Lesley made our almost-Fall dreams come true!

RW Events | Table of the Month | Marsala + Blush

For our very first look, we combined hues of marsala and blush with gold touches. We used a lovely Blush Lamour linen from Over The Top, along with the Bordeaux Lamour napkins from GBS Linens. At each place setting, we featured Gold Rim glass chargers with darling gold flatware from Orlando Wedding & Party Rentals. Also at each place setting are dinner plates from the Luxmore Grande Estate. We just love how the deep red napkins pop on top of the china and blush linen. Now for the best part… the flowers! Lesley started off by arranging the pretty blooms in a circle, with clear glass candle votives of varying heights in the center. *swoon!* To finish the look, we added Gold Chiavari chairs to tie in the gold touches.

RW Events | Table of the Month | Marsala + Champagne

For our second table design, we coupled marsala and champagne together. These hues complimented each other quite nicely, and we even incorporated a dash of blush. To start, we used our Gregory farm table, which is one of our favorite pieces. Down the middle of the table, you’ll see a Champagne Micro Matte Sequin runner from Over the Top. Also in the middle, you can see the floral that Lesley stretched out from our first design, to make more of a garland look. Our favorite part of the floral design has to be the Red Amaranthus – it’s the droopy pieces of floral that you see throughout the arrangement! At each place setting, there is a Copper charger from Orlando Wedding & Party Rentals, along with a Blush Lamour napkin from GBS Linens. We think the French Country Chairs complimented the design and farm table beautifully.

RW Events | Table of the Month | Marsala + Greenery

Last but not certainly not least, our third design showcases marsala paired with touches of greenery. We started off with our greenery walls, Fern, to make a statement in the background. In front of the walls, we placed one of our sweetheart tables, Monroe. Lesley converted the garland onto the sweetheart table, and made it drip off the front of the table a bit. We recently discovered this Ivory Organza runner from GBS Linens, and we think it’s stunning across farm tables. At each place setting, we used the Gold Rimmed glass charger again, along with some of our mismatched china, and Bordeaux Lamour napkins from GBS Linens. We think the Silver Industrial chairs add a different element to the design, and we can’t get enough of them! To complete the look, Lesley brought in the clear glass candle votives, and added a bit of floral and greenery to the chairs.

We hope you enjoyed our September tables! If you happened to miss last month’s design, take a peek here!

Featured Inventory | Boho Chic

Say hello to our newest collection! This boho chic social lounge is the perfect blend of relaxed bohemian + modern details, and we just can’t get enough of it!

Boho Chic CollectionWhat really gives this collection personality are the little details – like the tribal drum and the patterned pillows. To make the space a little more cozy we added two simple rugs and some fuzzy throw blankets {perfect for cuddling up with your sweetie}.

Our favorite detail – those ottomans! We love their fun texture + hint of sparkle, and they double as additional seating!

Table of the Month | The Neutrals

Table AugustWelcome to our very first ‘Table of the Month’ series! Our goal with this series, is to show how one focal centerpiece can be used on different tables and styles. This month, we’ve chosen to play with neutrals; think – ivory, champagne and taupe. We felt florally inspired to showcase a tall trumpet vase, topped with a mix of ivory/white flowers and an array of greenery. The always lovely, Lesley, of Flowers by Lesley, fulfilled our neutral dreams! Go grab your favorite cozy beverage, and keep scrolling to see what we’ve created.

For our first table, we designed a romantic table with a touch of metallic sheen. To cover the round banquet table, we used the Taupe Shalimar linen from Over the Top, along with Ivory Lamour napkins. At each place setting, we chose to feature Gold Rim glass chargers along with the Brushed Gold flatware set from A Chair Affair. The white dinner and bread + butter plates belong to the Luxmore Grande Estate… SWOON! In the center of this metallic table, you’ll see the gorgeous, tall floral centerpiece. Ms. Lesley also incorporated three smaller floral pieces in mercury glass vases, along with ornate gold candle pillars. Upon looking at the different tables, you can see that we chose to use mahogany chiavari chairs throughout; We love how versatile these chairs are amongst different styles.

It’s no secret that this is our favorite design, *squeal*. This look just oozes elegance! Alright, enough gushing; let’s get down to business. We covered this captain’s table with Bentley Ivory linen from Over the Top. If you love the long table look, we highly recommend going with a captain’s table (8’48”) instead of a standard banquet table (8’x30”). Doing so makes the width of your table 18 inches wider – allowing space for chargers, flatware and beautiful centerpieces! At each place setting we displayed Silver Belmont chargers and Capri Stainless Steel flatware from A Chair Affair. Again, we featured china from the Luxmore Grande Estate, along with the Ivory Lamour napkins. Onto the good stuff – the floral! The tall centerpiece and smaller floral pieces were placed along the center of the table. Lesley also brought in small silver candle votives to dress up the look. Last but not least, the gorgeous chair drapes! Lesley had these in her arsenal, and we just LOVE how they instantly elevated the table. These would be beautiful for a head table, or even just the newlyweds themselves.

Design 2 (2)
For our final table, we chose to showcase our Wesley farm table. At each place setting, you’ll notice the Taupe glass chargers, a personal favorite of ours. We brought the Brushed Gold flatware back, to give the table a slight mixed metals look, along with the Ivory Lamour napkins. Again, in the center of the table, is that stunning floral arrangement. For this look, Lesley put the smaller floral blooms atop mercury glass pillars, and incorporated the small silver candle votives. We draped the chair sashes a bit differently, to give it a simpler and chic feel. Add a cluster of blooms and greenery to the sashes, and voila! All of our rustic elegant dreams come true!

Featured Inventory | Industrial Chic

Everything about this styled shoot makes me happy – the fresh floral + greenery, the vintage + industrial pieces, and that {gorgeous} couple… swoon!

5 Trends from Bridal Fashion Week

Bridal Fashion Week may have wrapped up earlier this month, but we’re still drooling over the gorgeous gowns that made their way down the runway. Check out our fashion forward coordinator’s {Miss Shadow} five favorite trends from this years shows!

Capes – No veil necessary here. Capes were all the rage on the runway for Spring. Whether you opt for a long bridal cape or a short caplet, you will add a modern element that is sure to make a statement. Best part, just like a veil you can remove it to reveal hidden details of your gown.{Left to right: Romona Kevenza, Naeem Khan and Monique Lhuillier}

V-Necklines – Although a deep v-neckline can seem a bit risqué, it actually can flatter the upper body and elongate a petite or short torso. Designers have mixed them up with everything from delicate lace to illusion-covered cuts to embellished fabrics to offer a soft feminine style. Pro tip: Keep that Hollywood Fashion tape handy. {Left to right: Anne Barge, Rivini and Lela Rose}

Floral – Floral has never been so prominent as they were in almost every collection for next Spring. Designers incorporated florals in several ways from floral lace to 3-D to embellished appliqués and we could be more excited to see not only floral but color as well. {Left to right: Marchesa, Jenny Packham and Ines Di Santo}

Sheer Illusion – Think sultry and sweet and this season, designers played with sheer elements ranging from embellished, modesty cutout panels to full-on see-through embroidered tops and dresses. If you want something more daring than sheer is a fabulous choice as it is revealing but still elegant. {Left to right: Ines Di Santo, J Mendel and Berta}

Off the Shoulder – Move over Strapless, shoulder details are back! Modest-meets-sexy. Designers did some incredible updates to the classic trend, including embroidered illusion necklines, floral detailing, and sleeves with peekaboo slits. {Left to right: Reem Acra, Francesca Miranda and Christos}
