Chevron Wedding Details

You may already know of my love for chevron anything (home decor, fashion and now weddings) from my previous blog about chevron cakes but I wanted to share how easily you can incorporate chevron details in to your wedding.  What I love most about the chevron pattern is how versatile it is.  It looks great at a casual affair or an elegant, formal wedding.

I hate to repeat myself, but I truly believe the best weddings don’t forget about the details.  Using splashes of the chevron pattern in the details will give a modern look to any color palette.

When using chevron details don’t be afraid to mix colors and patterns to compliment each other.  The texture of the different materials and patterns can make for an interesting and beautiful tablescape.

One of the easiest ways to use chevron for your tables is to add a chevron napkin or table runner!

Look how modern, yet simple these tables can look by just adding a chevron patterned table runner!

Wedding stationary is a great way to incorporate the chevron pattern. Chevron looks great on invitations, programs and place cards. You can also use the same stationary to decorate your guest favors.

Some grooms are even wearing chevron bow-ties, ties or pocket squares!

Brides are even joining in and wrapping their bridal bouquet in the same chevron pattern to match their groom!

Food Trucks at Weddings!

Food trucks are one of the hottest wedding trends emerging in 2012!! From gourmet cupcakes to BBQ and burgers you can find almost any kind of food truck to be at your wedding.

There are many reasons to opt for a food truck at your wedding.  The first reason may be cost.  Most food trucks are less expensive than traditional wedding caterers.  Also, food trucks are usually more eco friendly by using fresh ingredients and making less mess by using paper products.

Another reason to have a food truck would have to be the awesome pictures you can get!

Some brides and grooms instead of a traditional receiving line are serving up tasty treats from the food truck as a way to welcome everyone to the wedding!

Lastly, I like food trucks because it is unique and sets your wedding apart from any other. How surprised would your guests be as they depart to see an ice cream truck waiting to hand out their choice of dessert as they leave?!?  Or grab mini appetizers from food trucks during the cocktail hour?

I know this trend is not for every wedding but there are ways to incorporate food trucks and still have a traditional catered meal for dinner.

If you live in the Atlanta area, a new food truck park has just opened and includes at least 15 different food trucks at one time giving you the opportunity to taste from several different food trucks and find the one perfect for your wedding.  The Atlanta Food Truck Park is open for lunch and dinner 7 days a week offering live music and even a weekend farmers and art market!

What are your thoughts on food trucks?  We want to know!

Happy Planning!

Unique Table Runners

If you are looking for a quick and easy way to bring some color and texture to your reception tables you may want to consider a table runner!

Table runners are a great way to accentuate your centerpieces as well as make your guest tables unique! Table runners are traditionally long pieces of fabric, but brides are using their awesome creativity to make their own runner out of all sorts of materials!  Here are some of my favorite ideas!

 I have mentioned before you can use wallpaper for aisle runners and this is also a great choice for a DIY table runner!! I love wallpaper and all the fun and creative ways you can use it for weddings!  It comes in so many different fabrics and colors that you can choose a pattern that fits your wedding perfectly.

If you or your fiance love to read or write you can use pieces of pages from books to make a runner.  Or use old typewriter paper rolled out.  You can even type words on the paper every so often to make it more unique!

For an “outdoorsy” wedding you can use materials found in nature, like moss.  You can also use wood or burlap as a table runner.

For a vintage themed wedding you can use different sizes of doilies.

Or use strips of ribbon and lace as your table runner! How simple and elegant?

And if budget is no object, just use flowers like hydrangeas as your table runner! Wow…look how it falls off the table on to the floor!

Do you have a creative table runner idea that wasn’t mentioned?  Let us know!

Happy Planning!
