Designer Tips and Tricks | Creating The Perfect Color Palette

Searching high and low for the perfect wedding colors? Selecting your perfect pallete doesn’t need to be a super stressful situation. Yes, these colors will either haunt you or create the perfect wedding mood but, with these few helpful tips we know you’ll be confident that you made the right choice!

Start off by asking yourself, “what type of wedding mood do I want to create”. Soft shades of pink with accents of burgundy and gold really capture that romantic feel, while bold and vibrant colors bring drama and energy to your wedding day mood. We know it can seem a bit overwhelming at first. So just do your best to not let the depths of Pinterest overwhelm you and confuse you, keep it simple and sweet. Start with your core 3 colors and the rest is up to you!

Tidbits + Tips | Videography

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and that makes us wonder how many words a film is worth. While photography is a wonderful way to capture still moments {and we’re suckers for amazing photos}, video allows us to hear the words we spoke, see the {happy} tears we cried, and relive the joy and excitement of the most precious experiences of our lives. That’s why we just love when clients decide to hire a videographer! They can capture all the elements of your wedding day and compress them into one stunning video that can be played as many times as your heart desires.

Pro tip: turn watching your wedding video into a date night! Grab a fuzzy blanket, lots of tissues {for all those happy tears}, turn off your cell phones, and cuddle up with your sweetie while you reminisce about your perfect day.


Today’s chatter | Wedding Day Essentials

Yes, you’ve heard it 1000 times, well here’s to 1001 – YOU should always pack an emergency kit, especially if you didn’t hire a professional wedding planner. This kit should cover all of the mishaps {and forgetfulness} that occur while you and your bridal party prepare for the big day. The essentials:

The Collections

We’re all about the details and revamping our inventory to make the selection process easier for our clients.

Starting March 7th – RW Style (our vintage rental division) will showcase Seating Collections. The collections will give clients the flexibility of choosing set groupings to accommodate up to18 persons. The groupings will feature vintage settees, chesterfield sofas, queen Anne chairs, tables, accent pillows, and so much more. Each grouping is categorized by color and will allow the client to add décor elements such as styling services, gallery wall backdrops, floral, and custom signage.

We’re creating mood boards to make the selection process easier. Each mood board includes inventory to compliment your color concept, followed by seating collections, ideas for cake + dessert displays, sweetheart tables, and other wedding day essentials.

Moments | Behind the Scenes with an RW Events' Bride

What is a moment? A moment is defined as:
:a very short period of time
: a particular time; a precise point in time
: the present time

The moments we witness, as our brides prepare for their wedding day, are magically endearing.

Moments of Preparation :: The sheer excitement of something as simple as laying out the wedding dress to getting their hair and make-up done… to the bride putting on her wedding day jewelry the groom surprised her with.
