You can almost always count on dry weather in the month of August here in the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley, but rain is always a possibility. While most of Encore Wedding Coordination Specialists's clients have a rain plan in place it's typically not what the couple hopes for and weather forecasts can be especially stressful in the week leading up to the big day.
Last weekend we were dealt some rather unseasonably dreary weather but miraculously the clouds parted and our brides and grooms were able to have their dream day as planned. We here at Encore always make sure that we're one step ahead of mother nature and will do our absolute best to make sure no matter the weather situation your day is just perfection.
We wanted to show you a few different styles of centerpieces this week that are both trendy and personalized. Many brides and grooms love to plan the decor and details of their weddings since it reflects who they are. Taking your venue into consideration as well can truly wow your guests with your style.
Let's have a look at some of the gorgeous centerpieces and decor that Encore helped our lovely couples with in the past few weeks. Not sure what aesthetic works for your venue? Our coordinators are ready to help!
Eucalyptus is still the greenery du jour. With it's fragrant scent and gorgeous large green leaves you can see why our Fraser Valley brides can't get enough of this beautiful plant. You can use eucalyptus in a variety of ways; it works for an organic table runner, centerpieces, and additional greenery on your welcome table, gift table, and even on signage.
This stunning dense eucalyptus table runner/centerpiece was so simple yet gorgeous; the addition of a candles of varying heights makes these tables romantic and perfect for a dreamy celebration.
If you're using round tables and still want to add eucalyptus or another type of greenery to your guest tables a few springs carefully laid around the candles and vases is very effective. Eucalyptus can be surprisingly expensive so if you still want to add some to your decor a little does go a long way.
Don't you just love this centerpiece?? The dense almost tropical greenery looks beautiful along with the gold geometric candle (which is from Ikea by the way!) and wooden table number.
Another up and coming trend is using live potted plants for centerpieces. These are not only totally eco-friendly but can double as guest favours!
Baby's breath is the quintessential wedding floral. And they're inexpensive! Add baby's breath to your greenery table runner along with a few strategically placed roses and take your head table to the next level. This table looks amazing with it's combination of greenery, florals, and candles; all on top of a dark harvest table.
Wooden rounds are still going strong as well; and how cute are these burlap and laced wrapped votives?? These tie beautifully into the burlap/lace table runners and looked breathtaking in this chic barn wedding. Hydrangeas are a great flower for the budget minded; just one stem in a vase can make a huge impact.
This gorgeous bouquet also featured astilbe and dahlias. Choosing flowers that are season can help keep your floral budget in check.
That's it for us this week at Encore Wedding Coordination Specialists; we can't wait to show you what next weekend's Fraser Valley wedding couples have in store!
