3 Things Nashville Wedding Planners Are Loving Now: Hanging Elements, Floral Sheeting + Unique Vases
Wednesday, October 17, 2012
Nashville wedding planners are a talented group of men and women that are committed to engaged Nashville couples. And while some are more design focused than others, most do a great job of keeping a pulse on what's new and innovative in weddings and use their insight to make our weddings so very creative. That's why I love chatting with our local planners, I always walk away with great ideas to share with you!
Take my conversation over Starbucks with Tiffanie of Elliott Events. When asked, "what are you loving in weddings right now," Tiffanie, who is a design-centric wedding planner, didn't hesitate. Here's what she's loving and what she's designing for her 2012/2013 brides.
Love 1: Hanging Elements
Tiffany is in love with hanging elements. "I am obsessed with all things hanging - from hanging votive candles for centerpieces to bubble bowls extended from ceiling. You can put candles or flowers in just about anything! I love hanging jewel curtains or anything that brings the ceiling down. Draping is a good option, but if you can't afford it, hanging elements will work and add a wow factor. I am incorporating a lot more hanging elements in 2013."
Love 2: Floral Sheeting
Tiffanie admits, "this trend is definitely not for all brides, but for the funky bride who is willing to think outside the box. It's great for a party, baby shower, or corporate function. It's a sheet with little tabs that look like petals; the sheeting comes in nearly 20 colors. It can be used in place of a table overlay, which is super cool. Or it can be used along with an uplight to provide a really dramatic on walls for draping. The sheeting is really cool when lit; works best in dark. But, it must be styled correctly or it will look cheap!"
Love 3: Decorative Vases
Tiffanie just bought a large inventory of decorative vases and votives for her 2012/2013 brides. Instead of simply using clear, basic vases and votives, these Mercury or mirrored vases and candle holders are a fun way to "incorporate pops of color." Later this year, she's doing a few weddings where the brides have chosen silver and gold vases and votives. How fun!
Tiffanie appreciates that these new pieces allow the bride to bring in things she loves, from studded vases for the punk rock bride to gold, glitter votives for the glam bride. When replaced with something more unique, vases and votives add fun in unexpected places.
