Tablescape of the Month :: Classic Elegance

If you’ve met our team, you know how much we love a stunning tablescape. It’s certainly no secret that perfectly placed china, floral, and elegant linen make our hearts swoon. 🙂 We partnered with some amazing Central Florida wedding vendors to make this dreamy tablescape come to life. Our bestie, Lesley with Flowers by Lesley, adorned a captain’s table with a mix of high + low centerpieces {with lush arrangements of white hydrangea + roses} & votives, and wove some lovely fabric into the back of our chiavari chairs. It gave our simple but oh, so elegant tablescape a romantic, ethereal feel! The linen {Bentley} is one of our favs from Over the Top and we choose to drape that over a captain’s table. For those of you who don’t know, a captain’s table is an expanded version of a standard 8′ banquet table. It’s an extra 18″ wide, making it the perfect table option if you want to feature chargers, a full place setting, and lots of floral! Our belmont chargers were topped with our in-house china at Luxmore Grande Estate {isn’t that gold rim gorgeous!?} and we paired that with a sleek silverware set {Capri} from A Chair Affair. We simple love this style for Luxmore Grande Estate, with is grande ballroom and sparkly chandeliers! 🙂


Fashion We Love for Our Luxmore Brides

Here are some fashion highlights from the show we think would be the perfect fit four our Luxmore brides! All of these fabulous looks can be found at One & Only Bridal Boutique.

Bold & Elegant

Indoor Ceremonies :: The New Trend That Never Left

While Luxmore Grande Estate boasts some beautiful outdoor scenery it is so unique in that it is one of the few venues of its kind that can house larger events inside. The Grande Ballroom can host weddings of up to almost 200 while still feeling warm and homey. While the estate room can provide a stunning ceremony option for more intimate events, the library and double staircase offer unique backdrops.

So Much More than Four Walls
What could be more classic than a ballroom wedding? For a while it seemed indoor affairs were taking a back seat to the growing popularity of outdoor weddings. But indoor is making a come back as fashion forward brides are looking to create new trends and breathe new life into timeless backdrops.

The right space can create a sense of intimacy, elegance, and reflect personal style. Walls reflect the memories of the events they host, and what better way to celebrate with your closest friends and family than to do so in a venue that feels like home.

Find a Space & Make It Yours
Another considerable aspect of an indoor ceremony is often times you are given a great blank canvas. Sometimes with outdoor spaces it can be hard to personalize and separate it from events that have been done before. Indoor spaces offer unique opportunities for draping, hanging décor, and lighting that can be difficult without walls or a ceiling to play off of.

Particularly with Luxmore Grande, all of our unique spaces and interiors foster creativity from our couples and planners. Our chandeliers are the perfect centerpieces for ceiling drapes, while our archways look beautiful adorned with floral. The antique bar and mantles offers themselves as great conversation pieces, while the foyer is a statement as soon as your guests walk through the doors. However, even with all of this it allows our brides and grooms the ability to showcase their own tastes and visions.

Beautiful Rain or Shine
The last and arguably most practical reason to love an indoor space is no matter the weather your day can be stunning. Outdoor venues are gorgeous but only weather permitting. A tent is a great back up but not always the ideal look or feel the couple was initially going for.

With an indoor space you know exactly what you are getting. Especially with Florida whether it rains, or there is heat wave you know what to expect and your guests will be comfortable.
