Macramé Madness

 

Macramé is a unique lace-like textile created by knotting or “hitching” cords, so naturally it makes the perfect decor for a bohehiam wedding {get it, because you’re “tying the knot” or “gettin’ hitched” ;-)}! This textile has been around since the thirteenth century and is popping up all over the wedding world. It’s typically used for items like tablecloths, bedspreads, and jewelry, but our client, Kendall, got creative and incorporated two macramé pieces into her wedding – one as a ceremony backdrop and the other as a photo backdrop. Macramé is traditionally crafted from fibers like cotton, hemp, and jute, so it can be dyed to match your color palette or left natural for that classic boho look.

Fun-fact: Did you know the word macramé in Arabic, migramah, means fringe {referring to the decorative fringe typically found in macramé designs}?


To Tent or Not To Tent

 

Forecasting Florida weather is always tricky – it’s sunny one minute and the next it’s raining cats and dogs. If you’re planning a wedding in one of those finicky months every good wedding planner will likely recommend having a tent on standby in case of a torrential downpour. Now, we know what you’re thinking – “We chose our venue because it’s stunning and a tent just isn’t pretty enough for our guests to enjoy.” That’s where the tent experts and florists come in =)

Tents don’t have to be an eyesore; they can be a gorgeous addition to the wedding experience and often times even lend to the comfort of you and your guests {whether it’s to shield from rain and wind or keep heat in during colder months}! With a little draping here and there, some floral, and ambiance lighting, you can make a tent look like it was part of the plan from the get-go instead of a last minute back-up option. So forget the white top tents with metal frames and feast your eyes on some of the beauties our clients have dreamed up!
