Wedding Tip #44
When designing your invitation, be sure to proof it several times, even if there are additional proof charges. An invite with typos is embarrassing.

With 2014 Love Is In The Air right around the corner I wanted to revisit one of my favorite tables from last year’s event. The Graffiti Table!  We created the linen, used hardware for the napkin rings & had the funnest diamond plate chargers along with overhead industrial lighting with Edison bulbs!

The ultimate GLOW Party!

This was truly a fun concept that took a while to figure out! The client agreed our creative team nailed it. Everything glowed and the lighting on the tables changed colors so the room had a constant changing vibe. The kids seating was in front of  looping rollercoaster footage (the mitzvahs fav ride!) The seating was set at 3 different heights to mimic a coaster and covered in glowing spandex. The adult tables were futuristic and very fun.

Tip your wedding helpers before they get busy. If you tip ahead of their duties, they know you already appreciate them and they will go that extra mile.
