The addition of certain specialized décor elements can take a ceremony or reception space from one concept to another in the blink of an eye. Utilizing vintage accoutrements such as old-world suitcases or even small music boxes as a part of the centerpiece design or escort card tables will give an event a timeless feel. Décor accents in bright, bold colors bring a tropical vibe to practically any venue. When it comes to the overall motif of your special day, it really is all in the details! Once you and your beloved have decided upon a general concept for your celebration, it’s time to start getting to work on bringing that idea to life.

If it has always been your dream to host your nuptials the way royals do, or if you’re simply trying to add a touch of fairy-tale whimsy to your vow exchange, one simple way to achieve your desired look is through the use of sheer fabrics. While see-through fabrics are beautiful elements to see in a wedding gown or the bridesmaid dresses, sheer material can also be used to adorn your venue in a multitude of ways. Depending on the color of the fabric and where it’s added, it can exude either a sweetly sentimental feel or a mysterious and sexy vibe.
