Creative Table Numbers

I am a firm believer that it is important for the wedding decorator to work with the florist to bring a couple’s wedding vision to life. In the last few years, I have seen couples get creative when it comes to their table numbers. (For those that don’t know what table numbers are - reception tables usually have a number or a name so that guests know which table they are sitting at. This usually only applies for receptions with assigned seating. Yup, now you know!) Many couples are now forgoing the usual “Table 2” signs. Rather they are making it more personal to them by naming the tables after songs, famous couples, and destinations that the couple has visited together.

Today, as I perusing through the internet, I came across a floral company in Philadelphia named Beautiful Blooms. Each of the tables were represented by a different place and the centerpieces were designed to match the locations. Some centerpieces are more traditional, romantic, modern, ethnic, etc. It really goes to show that centerpieces don’t have to be all the same in one room. Each table can have their personalities too.

Happy 2010!

A couple years back, I decided not to make New Years resolutions because I knew I would not be able to keep up with the new resolution past January 5. Rather than making a resolution (to lose the last 10 pounds again), I have opted to learn something new every year. Coincidently, most of the things I learn relate to the wedding industry and allows me to better assist my clients. Two years ago, I learned and got my Certificate in Floral Design. Last year, I learned to work with paper (making invitations and various table stationary). This year, I have decided to learn a little bit about photography!

During consultation meetings with my clients, I ask a lot of questions. Some of which my clients give me a blank look and wonder if I am a crazy lady. For example, when designing the ceremony vow area, I ask my clients how tall they are. The reason I ask is so that I can measure and keep in mind the client's heights when designing the decorations. I don't want the decorations to look like horns coming out of my client's heads. This is definitely not a memory they want reflected in their wedding pictures!

Wedding decorations help create a feeling and a beautiful wedding for my client's special day. Photography is the lasting memories that my clients get to keep for the rest of their lives. Hopefully, I can merge both of these things to better assist my clients. Wish me luck!
