Say Goodbye to Uniformity!

Rachel Moore

Mixing and matching has never been trendier. Here are some ways to mix and match your way to a gorgeous event.

Round and rectangular tables. Try one long head table in the middle of the room surrounded by round tables, or flank the dance floor with three rectangular tables and fill the remaining space with rounds. Either lends itself naturally to a variety of centerpieces, adding interest to your reception space.

Types of chairs. From cross backs to round backs, chiavaris to ghost chairs, feel free to mix and match -- even at the same table!

Silver and gold. Don't be afraid to mix metallics! You can absolutely use petite silver vases and gold silverware or gold chargers and silver flatware. In fact, we love BBJ Linen's new silver birch linen, which highlights both gold and silver tones.

Patterns and textures. There's nothing more fun than a client who opts for mixing it up with bright, bold, patterned linen!

The Icing on the Cake

Rachel Moore

As some of you know, our founder/CEO Rachel Derman married Eric Moore on October 4, 2014, at The Ritz-Carlton in Dallas, Texas. It was a dreamy affair that created lasting memories for all who attended, thanks in large part to the yeoman efforts of the wonderful vendors who participated. That's why we're especially honored that The Knot chose to recently feature Rachel and Eric's wedding.

Picking Flowers

No matter the size of your floral budget, you'll be able to stretch it much further by keeping the following tips in mind: 

Shop seasonally. We know, peonies are your favorite flower, but they're not available year round. Unless you plan your wedding for peony season, you may have to substitute another flower like the garden rose. Flowers are less expensive and in the best condition when they're in the peak of their blooming season. Plan your wedding date accordingly if you absolutely must have a particular flower; otherwise, be flexible!  

Do your research. Having a destination wedding? Be sure to research the local agriculture laws. Since most islands restrict flower imports, for instance, you might want to consider some native exotic blooms that match your decor instead of flying in tulips from your hometown. 

Consider the weather. Whether you're getting married in the winter or summer, stick with flowers that will keep their shape under extreme weather conditions. Ranunculus, dahlias, callas, delphinium and tulips can survive colder temperatures. Adventurous brides may want to embellish their winter nuptials with non-floral accents like pine cones, dusty miller, snowberries and even feathers! Resilient flowers like orchids, birds of paradise, lilies and roses are perfect for beach settings. Keep these blooms in cooler temperatures and out of the sun for as long as possible for optimal freshness.
