3 Tips on Innovative Wedding Trends

March 7th, 2015

The preparation for the second annual Luxe Hotel Wedding Event is getting underway!  This is an unique wedding show featuring top event specialist who will be providing you the best services and products for your wedding.  Wildflower Linen’s beautifully detailed table linens and chair cover rentals will be seen throughout the show as many vendors will be featuring them.   See more details below about the event held at the Luxe Sunset Boulevard Hotel March 9 from 4-8PM.

Guests will be inspired and filled with information to educate them on wedding ideas.  For those who can’t make it to the show, we thought we’d share some of our own ideas including: 3 tips on innovative wedding trends.

Pop of Color

Don’t be afraid to add a pop of color where it’s least expected.  When people think about adding color to their wedding, they usually add it by using colorful florals, choosing a colored table linen or adding colored accents in ribbons or paper goods.  But what about adding something that is completely unexpected like adding the pop in the chair cover? It can create an amazing impact.  Choose the palette of your choice, keeping the linens and florals within the same color scheme and add the pop of color in the chair cover and smaller items like napkins and tabletop décor!  Guests will be stunned by the vibrant color and how much it can bring to the entire look.

Chair Cover Palooza

Although chair covers have been used for many years, it is just now becoming a bigger trend than ever.  Go crazy with chair covers for your entire event or just use a few for the head table or sweetheart table.  Memories of your wedding will be cherished for years to come and whether you have 2 or 200, the chair covers are always a feature that will be photographed and admired by your guests in depth! Chair covers can also help add a different feel in each area of your event by repurposing the chairs from the ceremony to the reception area. You can use a chair cover for the chairs during the ceremony and take them off for the reception or vice versa!  It will feel like you rented two separate chairs for the event! If you use chair covers for the entire event, you can do something simpler for the table linens.  Remember, you can visually see 100 chair covers in a room easier than 10 tables or centerpieces.

Visual Impact

If you want to make every table at your event over the top but can’t, the 3 main tables we recommend to spend some extra time and effort on are the escort card table, the sweethearts or head table and the cake table.

The escort card table is the table that every guest will venture by and it’s a great focal point during cocktail hour.  It is one of the first impression that guest will have about the décor and ambience.   Dress this table up to make it look fabulous and then add your favorite portraits, a collage of your favorite books or movies or just something special that represents you both as a couple.

The sweetheart or head table is special because all eyes are on you!  Your guest will be eyeing you all night at this table so make it something extra special!  Also, many of your wedding photos will be shot here so why not have great camera images to remember as well!

Finally, the cake table is the table that all guests will convene around again at the end of the night!  It is by far one of the most photographed tables at the event so have it stand out for the occasion!  As shown below,  it can be as elaborate or as simple as you’d like but either way, the special attention to detail that our table linens will create makes a stunning difference!

Into the Woods for Valentines

February 11th, 2015

Wildflower_Linen_Bella_Notte_Events_AY_Photography_woodland_wedding1_giselle_chair_sleeves

We are going into the woods for Valentines with this sweet and romantic midsummer’s night dream woodland themed shoot featured on Styled Unveiled today!

Wildflower_Linen_Bella_Notte_Events_AY_Photography_woodland_wedding2Wildflower_Linen_Bella_Notte_Events_AY_Photography_woodland_wedding1

An excerpt from Style Unveiled:

This Midsummer Night’s Dream in San Francisco was styled by Cindy Danbom of Belle Notte Events.  Kendra and Paul eloped in France and do not have many pictures from their wedding. This styled shoot gave our real life couple the images they were dreaming of.  Lost in the woods of San Francisco’s preserved parks lies our dreamy location for this design.  The lush ivy and tall trees gave the perfect backdrop to our rich and romantic tablescape that embraces the hues of the foliage and enhances the luscious berry tones of our dramatic setting.  Wildflower Linen added the drama with their pink and coral table linens, green silk napkins and the so beautiful light Giselle Champagne tulle chair covers that give the impression the table is floating.

We chose to feature the deep and romantic berry tones to add warmth to the forest.  The varieties of hues from cream garden roses to rich dark fuchsia peonies are perfectly demonstrated in our ombre flowerwall, the perfect portrait back drops for any ceremony.

The whimsical dessert station featured delicate desserts blended perfectly into our woods.  The theme of the shoot was to capture our bohemian chic bride in a nook of the city you wouldn’t expect, a fairytale in the woods but delivering on all the drama and style San Francisco always offers.

Our elegantly coiffed model Kendra, with long wispy curls and natural make up by Michelle of Skyla Arts, wears not one, but two dresses by Amy Kuschel. Traipsing through the woods barefoot in her effortlessly boho chic way, the River and Birkin dress collections are featured.

Silver and White Winter Wedding

January 28th, 2015

It’s real wedding Wednesday  so we are starting off the mid-week by sharing this dreamy silver and white winter wedding recently featured in Utah’s Bride and Groom Magazine!

JamyBeecherPhotography_188_JBPhotoraphyh&ewedding

The wintery day started at the Bountiful Temple,  before friends and family gathered at the Sharon Room of Salt Lake, Utah’s iconic Joseph Smith Memorial Building. Opting out of a traditional wedding reception, the couple hosted an intimate dinner for family and close friends who came from as far as Hawaii and South Korea to attend. “We were able to spend a lot of time with them,” Heidi says. “It was so much fun having our family and closest friends there to celebrate.”

JamyBeecherPhotography_205_JBPhotoraphyh&eweddingJamyBeecherPhotography_203_JBPhotoraphyh&eweddingJamyBeecherPhotography_216_JBPhotoraphyh&eweddingJamyBeecherPhotography_191_JBPhotoraphyh&eweddingJamyBeecherPhotography_199_JBPhotoraphyh&eweddingJamyBeecherPhotography_223_JBPhotoraphyh&eweddingJamyBeecherPhotography_212_JBPhotoraphyh&eweddingJamyBeecherPhotography_Wildflower_Linen_Winter_Wedding_195JamyBeecherPhotography_201_JBPhotoraphyh&ewedding

In hues of silver, pink, blue and cream, lush florals and luxe fabrics shimmered during the evening affair. Wildflower Linen provided our shantung silver under linen with Carolyn Lace in grey as the overlays for the tables.  We also created a custom tulle with rhinestones escort card table and a cabaret beaded cap for the cake table.  Candles perched on the 9th floor windowsills lured guests to take in the views of Temple Square’s twinkling lights below. Silk draperies hung from every wall adding to the warm holiday feel. Hawaiian touches included fresh leis for Heidi and Evan, a hula dance performed by nieces and nephews and Hawaiian chocolate favors.

Blue Toile Creates Vintage Charm

January 15th, 2015

Looking for something blue? How about Toile! In a recent featured in Southern California Bride, blue toile creates vintage charm in this lovely design inspiration using vibrant blue and vibrant orange.  The theme is “vintage travel” with images taken in various rooms of the elegant Victorian Hotel in Santa Monica, CA.  Below are some excerpts by Rock N Events who styled the shoot along with photographer Molly + Co.

Wildflower_Linen_Blue_Toile_Molly_and_co_Photography

The Victorian’s old world glamour mixed with contemporary elegance created the perfect backdrop for a stunning inspiration shoot.

Two separate reception areas were utilized for the shoot to exhibit the versatility of the event space. The downstairs banquet suite showcased Wildflower Linen’s vintage blue and white toile pattern table linen which was the perfect base for an elegant table set up. Bronze chargers topped with a pocket folded navy napkin held the menu and a delicate orange rose.

Upstairs in The Library, Rock N Events dressed the reception table using nu silk sapphire blue table linens provided by Wildflower Linen, arrangements of burnt orange and white flowers by Elegant Thornes, and books pulled from the surrounding shelves. Rock N Events used open books instead of traditional chargers as the place settings topped with bronze napkins and an open rose.

What is Toile?

Wildflower Linen’s Navy Blue Toile Table Linen

Here is some information on Toile fabric and how it came about.  Toile de jouy fabric originated in France in the 1760s. The original patterns usually depicted pastoral scenes; today there are many pattern choices and colors available. Here are ways to use toile to liven up a room by Traditional Homes Magazine.

A Tulle of a Bridal Fair at Four Seasons

January 11th, 2015

What a tulle of a bridal fair at Four Seasons Hotel!  Last week, Wildflower Linen had a fabulous time meeting brides, planners and other industry professionals at the San Francisco Wedding Fair at the Four Seasons Hotels in downtown San Francisco.  The prestigious hotel, located at the heart of SF near Union Square, is one of the most perfect settings for a city wedding.

Wildflower_Linen_Tulle_Lace_Table_Linen_Four_Seasons

We showcased one of our favorite wedding table linen and chair cover rental looks for this year.  We shared with bridal fair goers one of this year’s trend which still incorporates the popular soft blushes, pink, champagne and ivory palettes but also adds some flair with sequins, lace and tulle.  That’s right, we said tulle… Wildflower Linen has been trending tulle for a while now and since we knew it was going to make a comeback from the past, we’ve added elements of tulle fabric in table linens and chair covers in a way that is elegant, sophisticated and nothing but beautiful!

Thank you for those that stopped by to say hello! If you have any questions about the items we showed or any of our other products, we’d love to hear from you!  For those that missed the show, here are a few images from our tablescape which includes a custom champagne tulle with sequins sparkle table linen skirt, Carolyn Lace champagne lace cap, crepe back satin blush napkins and an assortment of crystal napkin rings and ruffles and lace chair covers!

The gorgeous pink and ivory florals in milk glass and mercury containers were created by our friends at Passiflora Design.  The perfect wash on the tablescape and the white chiffon drapery were provided by Enhanced Lighting and Sound and the lovely tablescape rentals provided by Hartmann Studio Rentals added just the right touch of gold accents to the décor.

While setting up our space, we were so honored to have KTVU Channel 2 San Francisco, Bay Area News!
