Mismatched Bridesmaid Dresses | The Perfect Combo

Mismatched Slate Bridesmaid Dresses

Shopping for bridesmaid dresses? It’s certainly no easy task narrowing down all the options and making sure each lovely lady is comfortable and looks her best! Especially if you’ve got a squad 😉 The biggest things to keep in mind when shopping: all your maids have different bodies and love to show off in their unique styles. Naturally, choosing mismatched bridesmaid dresses is our go-to option!

We love seeing mismatched bridesmaid dresses that differ in style but are part of the same color family. Have fun with it and make it a girl’s day! Choose a shop (or two), give your ladies a color palette, and let them choose fun styles, patterns, and textures. Do a little try on to see how all the dresses look together and go from there! Another great options for these quarantined days is to shop online. Get your ladies together for a Facetime of Zoom call, grab your favorite drink and shop together virtually!

We’ve gotta say, our team has seen some gorgeous combos at our venues over the years – take a look! 

Our favorites combine varying necklines, patterns, textures, and shades whether that’s floral designs, lace, sequins, and even velvet!

Whatever combination of bridesmaid dresses you choose, we’re sure your bridal party will look flawless!

Design Boards

Hey there!

I’m not sure about you but we love throwing together style boards for our clients. It’s a quick way for us to explain our understanding of their vision, while showcasing the suggested inventory. Being in sync with our clients and planners is a priority for us.

Need help designing your event? Fill out the styling questionnaire for a free 30 minute virtual design consultation. During this consultation:

  • We’ll gather the needed details to create the design board
  • Suggest inventory
  • Create a comprehensive quote

Now, now before you go crazy thinking – let me reach out and pick their brain. We don’t “share” the design board until you’re booked as a client! However, you’re welcomed to purchase it for a small fee (if you decide to forego our services) 😉

Social Gatherings, Anyone.

Is anyone else excited at the thought of the stay at home guidelines being lifted! Dreams of spending time with friends this summer are becoming a reality. We’ve been dreaming of outdoor summer soirees, signature cocktails, and simple menus that taste delicious but leave us with plenty of time to entertain our crew. Here are our tips for hosting the very best summer dinner party!

Set the Scene

First, thing first! It’s the perfect time to dine al fresco; just make sure you are in a shaded space and keep the drinks flowing! We are forever inspired by this gorgeous RW Style bohemian set up at Luxmore Grande. We can’t wait to incorporate macramé, pampas grass, and modern rattan chairs into our summer party style. This style is perfect for summer parties.

Big City Inspired Dining

The perfect menu doesn’t always require you to (actually) cook! You can achieve something similar to this antipasto display by Big City Catering by selecting your favorite meats, cheeses, olives, jams, breads and more! Extra points if you have various platters and bowls on hand to enhance your spread. Keep the bar menu easy to prep with batch cocktails like white wine sangria and spiked peach punch.

Dress for the Sun

The style of your event begins with you! Once you pick a theme and color palette for your dinner party, find an outfit that compliments it. Encourage guests to wear similar colors, dress for a certain theme, or go with the ever-classic white party! The best hosts are the ones who look and feel their best! We’ve got you covered on the style front too: earrings, sunglasses, and other summer accessories can be found at our sister brand, Miscellaneous Market!

After months at home we know we’ll all be more grateful than ever for the opportunity to connect and celebrate with friends! Make this summer count by creating memory making experiences with the people you love!

Loungin’ at The Acre

This dapper couple has a keen eye for style and loves a jewel toned palette as much as we do! 

They tied the knot at The Acre Orlando. Curating a bold and colorful lounge in this white space was only fitting. That jewel toned obsession runs deep with our clients, too! Check out this lounge we styled for an Acre bride. She wanted a conversation set in rich hues of black, blue, and green. Naturally, we used touches of gold as an accent while livening the space up with fresh greenery.

Featured inventory, not including the textiles + assortment of styling goodies! 

Upholstered seating: Onyx, Jewel, Sapphire, + Olivia 

Accent Tables + Furnishings: Heston, Harlow, + Lana

Shout out to Dani Nichol Photography for capturing all the fun and moments!  

Haus 820 | Venue Highlight

Haus 820’s tagline “Our haus, your home” isn’t just a great play on words, it’s the truth. This incredible, industrial event space was a labor of love for the team behind it, and since 2017 it’s been the ideal venue for couples looking for open spaces, exposed white brick walls, and a place to call home- for the night!

 

With a capacity for up to 500 seated guests, Haus 820 is a blank canvas that you can add your own aesthetic to through style and design, and you know we’ve got you covered there! Natural light streaming in from the restored warehouse windows, an amazing color block wall featured on the outside of the building and industrial touches like pendant lighting and exposed ceilings are just a few of the reasons we can’t get enough of Haus 820. 

As a rental and styling brand we really get to stretch our creative muscles when clients book us for Haus 820 events. Modern, boho, traditional, glam…really any theme you can think of feels alright at home in this space, as does any type of event! Weddings, birthdays, branding campaigns, the list goes on. As a brand that prides itself on attracting different types of clients, we always get excited to work at a venue that does the same.

 We’ve had the pleasure of styling events and photo shoots at Haus 820 which has given our team the opportunity to see how our products look best in the space. The open concept allows us to create three distinct set ups (ceremony, cocktail hour and reception) in one room. The experience is easy and exciting for guests because as soon as they enter, the celebration surrounds them! 

Located in Lakeland, Haus 820 is easily accessible for couples and guests travelling from Tampa and Orlando. It’s a gem of a venue that we couldn’t love any more than we already do!

Wedding Pro Experience

Yellow Inspired Social Lounge

We love working with and meeting vendors in the wedding industry. We had the opportunity to attend and sponsor some fun, colorful rentals for the Knot Wedding Pro Experience. The Wedding Pro experience is a seminar for wedding industry professionals and it was so fun to meet and mingle with a great group of people! The event took place at the gorgeous Four Seasons Resort and featured some of our fun rental pieces! We had so much fun learning and networking! 

Setting the Stage with Colorful Rentals

Yellow Inspired Social Lounge

We’re obsessed with the colorful rentals in this lounge set and we’re feeling the tropical vibes! The vignette’s framed with three Living Walls, incorporating a mix of tropical greenery for a unique spin on your typical hedge wall. The mustard color of our Krystal sofa and Sunflower chair complements the wildflower floral arrangements by Flowers by Lesley, making for a gorgeous backdrop for this incredible event! 

The ballroom set everyone up for success, giving attendees a writing space and comfy seating with our white and gold Louis chairs. This luxe look perfectly complements the stunning recessed chandeliers!

Lovely Lounging & Champagne Break

We love our Sand collection paired with our Esmerelda coffee table! The whole look is finished off with tropical floral arrangements and some brightly colored throw pillows. A fun champagne station was also created with our bookshelves, Elaine coffee table, and Kelly sideboard!

 

But what did we learn? Check out our favorite tips from some leaders within the wedding industry! 

Incorporate Pomodoro into your workflow. Pomodoro is a time-management strategy that breaks tasks down into 25-minutes intervals to help make them more manageable.

It’s all about networking! Connect with others by attending mixers – the shared experience will help foster organic connections and build your circle!
