The Big Fake Wedding this year was held at The Kimpton Sawyer Hotel in April and we were lucky enough to be a vendor there! We gave you some sneak peeks a few weeks ago of what happened that day, and as promised, here we are filling you in with all the details in our wedding planning blog. The Big Fake Wedding bridal show alternative was a vow renewal and reception that guests could attend and meet vendors of all sorts. These included photographers, djs, caterers, videographers, wedding coordinators, wedding planners, florists, and more!
We had the honor of designing three tables at the Big Fake Wedding and we are so thrilled to show them off to you now if you missed the show. The theme for the wedding was Living Coral (2019’s Pantone Color of The Year), so we designed each table to portray this color scheme, with different styles in mind, different brides in mind. The color palettes for our table designed included: Living Coral, Aquamarine, Feather, Clownfish, Rose, and Oyster.
The Greenery Table
The first table we designed was the Greenery Table. This was guest table number 2. We teamed together with Beautiful By Nature Florist to create a simply elegant table runner with seeded eucalyptus and a coral colored rose to run down the center of the rustic wooden table. We designed a menu for each plate that incorporated the greenery and used an elegant calligraphy font. This also matched the name place cards. In between the plates laid a coral colored napkin and a small piece of eucalyptus tucked in tight. We used unique glasses that tied in the other colors in the Living Coral color scheme. The utensils were copper which also matched the copper mule mugs.
The Tropical Table
The second table we designed was the Tropical Table. We used glasses that were rimmed with gold, which tied in with the gold utensils. We used a coral table runner and placed fruit such as pineapple, lemons, limes, and oranges randomly throughout. The water goblets were a rich forest green. Celebrations has the perfect selection of fun eye catching pieces to add to tropical tables like this. We loved being able to work with them in making our vision come to life. The floral arrangements done by Beautiful By Nature Florist were different hues of pinks and different greenery that are “tropical” such as ferns. We created the menus to have the Living Coral color to match the coral napkin. We placed a fern leaf and coral colored ginger flower on the plates and underneath all the plates. The bottom leaf contained the names of each guest written in gold. We used three plates, the bottom one including a faint coral color lining the rim. This was the Bride and Groom’s head table.
The Watercolor Table
The third table we designed was the Watercolor Table. We would describe this table as the most classy, elegant design. Every detail was kept to be light and dainty, for the bride who wants white to be her main color on the palette. We table numbers along with the menus and place cards were hand painted with blush and coral water color paint. Our favorite element of this table design was the floral arrangements, which included ostrich feathers, pampass grass, white hydrangeas, and blush spray roses. The blush color in the floral arrangements, as well as the coral colored crytals scattered on the tabletop gave the table a pop of color that wasn’t too overwhelming. The marbled glassware included the Oyster and Feather color palette. We also used that nude tan color for the charger under the plates and for overlay on the table runner. These little touches give this table sparkle. The silverware have a beautiful handle that stands out. We loved putting together this gorgeous set up! Celebrations really delivered with helping us set up a table full of quality, beautiful, and unique pieces!
We hope that if you missed the bridal show, that this gives you some good insight into our part of that day. If you made it out to the Big Fake Wedding, we were so happy to meet you and connect with you! We were so excited to be part of this day and had a blast!
