Wedding Rental - Ghost Chairs

I see this trend popping up again and again in real weddings – ghost guest chairs and I love it! They add such a clean, modern element to any wedding ceremony, whether it be indoors or out. Ghost chairs add character without being overwhelming or feeling over designed. They can easily transition to any wedding theme or design and add a chic touch to your wedding décor.

Ghost chairs transition well from wedding ceremony rows to reception table chairs too. If you have to rent chairs for both occasions, why not rent just one chair that will fit both spots? Most couples tend to have a time between the ceremony and reception for a cocktail hour (while bridal party pictures are taken) in a separate venue, even if they are all taking place on the same ground so using them in both locations will not be an issue.

Whether you rent them for one event or your entire wedding day, you’re sure to be pleased with these chairs.

Beach Wedding Setting

It’s the peak of summer and I can’t get my mind off of beach weddings. Beach weddings in the summer - how particularly inventive of me. Creative judging aside, I found some amazing beach wedding set-ups. When you plan a beach wedding the venue is the easiest detail to pick, it’s sprucing that up to make your wedding unique that is the difficult part. You can’t just add flowers to the ends of the pews and sprinkle some petals down the aisle. You literally have to make the pews and aisle from scratch. That’s great for your creative freedom but not-so-great for your continually growing wedding to-do list. So here are a few beach wedding settings to get your creative juices flowing.

My Perfect Wedding Venue

I could see myself having many different style weddings. I don’t understand how couples narrow it down to just one. I constantly plan the tablescapes for my barn wedding, the hotel suite for my destination wedding and the invitations for my ceremony at the Four Seasons in New York. Now obviously I just cannot do them all (unless I renew my vows every year, which I’m tempted to do just for the parties) so I constantly change my mind. But when I saw this picture I fell in love.

Wouldn’t this be the perfect venue? The room itself has a rustic, natural vibe and has tons of conveniently open space for my guests’ chairs. The stained glass looking windows add a hint of tradition by giving a nod to the classic church ceremony. And those twinkling lights above would be unbelievably romantic.

Did I mention this venue is in Venice, Italy? I could definitely get married in Italy. It usually doesn’t look quite like this since it was set up for an art exhibit but I wonder if I could bribe them to recreate it for my wedding day…

Good Wedding Photography: You want to look pretty, right?

Writing for a wedding blog has given me an increased appreciation for the importance of a good wedding photographer. I always knew having a good photographer was necessary, but I didn’t realize what a drastic difference it could make. Having you and your new husband/wife pose a certain way for the pictures and capturing different angles of all your wedding elements makes your wedding seem so much more fun and interesting in print. And once your big day is finally over, the pictures are how you will remember it (and maybe one day tell your children about it) so fun and interesting are very important. Plus, what’s the fun in picking out every detail until it is perfect if there aren’t any pictures for your perfection to live in for eternity? If you only splurge on two things, make it the photographer and the dress.

Check out a these two wedding photographry sites that I just can’t resist, especially when I need a little wedding inspiration. Also, all the photography featured on Style Me Pretty - amazing.
