A Gorgeous Alternative: The Rain Plan at Luxmore Grande

Rain on your wedding day is apparently good luck. While that’s up for debate, one thing we know for sure is that the rain plan spaces at Luxmore Grande are equally as gorgeous as our outdoor ceremony spaces. Weddings are stressful enough without having to feel the disappointment of having a not-so-photo-worthy ceremony spot as your only option.

Couples at Luxmore have two stunning, indoor ceremony locations to choose from:

The Estate Room

We can host up to 80 guests in the Estate Room. The fireplace serves as the perfect space to add florals and greenery or can easily be covered with draping. Another great alternative would be hosting the ceremony in front of the bay windows! 

Grande Ballroom

When couples have a guest count over 80, the ceremony is hosted in the ballroom. Post ceremony, guests exit for cocktail hour and our team flips the room for the reception. The addition of entry draping ensures guests don’t see the set up and breakdown and also adds a touch of elegance to the space.

The Flip

Cocktail hour on rainy days is located on the front patio and in the foyer, library and parlor. Guests stay dry and get to enjoy the unique rooms inside the estate.

We may be biased about the beauty of our spaces, but our clients are on our side: many couples choose to host an indoor ceremony with us regardless of the weather! When you book your wedding at Luxmore the weather is of no concern: you’ll know your wedding will be gorgeous no matter what.

Oh, and the picture below is in the ballroom facing the opposite direction! 

There are so many great options to choose from 😉 

Tented

Let’s face it, Florida weather is fickle AF! – it’s sunny one minute and raining the next. We totally get it, you booked Cypress Grove Estate House because of the gorgeous tree-lined street and lakeside gazebo. Let’s us not forget about dancing under the market lights 😉 

All of that sounds lovely, until… RAIN shows up! 

How should you prepare and protect your investment? Reserve a tent! Tents are the only back-up plan for rain. Now, now before you roll your eyes or tell us about the historical data you pulled up on Google. Humor us a bit and read through the top 5 tips, to consider, when reserving your tent: 

 

    1. Size matters! The size of the tent should account for the total experience of the wedding. The food, décor, bar, dinner service, and maximum guest count.
    2. The add-ons. Yes, the costs can add up fast but so can the stress of not preparing for things such as side walls, lighting, flooring, dance floors, etc.
    3. Type of tent. Make sure the type of tent ordered compliments, not only your style, but the season as well. A clear span tent in summer months = green house (without air-conditioning)
    4. Logistics. Remember: you’ve only rented the facility for a day. Therefore, everything you’re planning needs to be installed and removed the same day.
    5. When to reserve. NOW. The industry is experiencing an influx in events and weddings. Due to this, dates are selling out faster than normal. By waiting until the month/week of to confirm your tent, you’ll likely experience difficulties in booking a reliable company or find yourself having to settle for whatever is left in stock.

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}! Oftentimes, the tent is designed as the main attraction! 

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. 

Wedding Layout | Designing the Perfect Flow

Wedding Layout | Mixed reception tables add a fun visual look!

You may not think it, but your wedding layout makes a big difference – it helps the event flow smoothly and keeps guests happy + comfortable. Not sure where to start? Check out some of our top tips for creating the perfect layout:

Entertainment + Dance Floor

Regardless of whether you’re having a band or a DJ, you’ll want to make sure they have a prime location next to the dance floor so they can keep the party going. The same rule applies if you’re having a tented reception. Once you’ve placed your entertainment vendor and dance floor, you can start placing tables!

Choosing Your Tables

We recommend starting with the bride + groom table. Will you share a sweetheart table or do you prefer a head table with your bridal party? Don’t forget to think about your guest tables – will they be seated at classic rounds or are you bringing in specialty tables? We love when couples mix things up and feature rounds + captain’s tables or farm tables! Be sure to have table measurements on hand to ensure they’ll fit comfortably in the reception space.

Arranging the Tables

With measurements in hand, arranging the tables is pretty simple. The newlyweds get the best view {of course!}, and immediate family {parents + siblings} should have a clear view of the couple. Elderly guests are a special case as your parents may want them seated at their table. Be sure to note how close their tables are to the entertainment, though. Elderly guests may appreciate being seated farther away from speakers. It’s best to keep things symmetrical; it looks much prettier in photos that way and makes things easier for the catering team.

Don't Forget the Bar

Often times, the bar is a big draw for your guests.  Help your wedding layout flow smoothly by placing it near the dance floor and away from any high traffic areas {like a path to the catering kitchen}. When creating your reception layout, don’t forget to allocate a space for it if it’s not built-in or mobile!

Layout Programs

One of our favorite tools for wedding planning is a layout creator. These allow you to drop different size tables, chairs, and more to see what fits best in your venue’s space!

Wedding Venue Tours 101

|| How to Make the most of Your Venue Tour ||

Whether you a pre-planner who already has every detail in place or you have never thought about wedding planning until he popped the question, don’t worry because our venue management team has some easy tips for making the most of your wedding venue tour with us at Cypress Grove Estate House & Luxmore Grande Estate

The venue is {typically} the first stop on your wedding planning journey. Once you secure the site, your location and venue are set in stone and everything else can start falling into place. It’s important to note that popular venues book quickly in prime months and popular dates; make sure not to procrastinate! 

1) Discuss Details & Budget! 
Since the venue is generally the first step in wedding planning, it is a good idea to try to sit down with your fiancé and family to discuss preliminary details and the wedding budget. This will help you decide what style and price-range of venues to inquire with, and also makes it easier to know what questions to ask when touring.  

The two essential details to decide on prior to your venue tour are wedding date and budget! A venue maybe stunning but if it is out of your price range, you need to be able to make a decisive decision on price. Also you need to decide if you are flexible on date, or if the venue is unavailable if that is grounds to keep looking? 

Other important details to note would be your guest count (as some venues have limited capacity). Make sure the maximum capacity allows for an inclement weather backup plan. Afterall, this is Florida 😉 

*Pro Tip – Be open to touring a variety of venue styles! Who knows, you might surprise yourself and fall in love with something different than your original idea or vision. 

2) Make sure to schedule an appointment for your site visit! 
Every venue will have different schedules and ways of handling tours. Making sure you schedule an appointment ensures the venue will be available when you would like to view it, and there will also be someone available from the venue staff to show you around, discuss packages, and details with you. If you opt to walk-in to a venue without an appointment you risk the venue being closed for an event, or not having anyone able to assist you on your tour.  

*Pro Tip – Reach out to the venue staff prior to your visit and probe them for information, or even ask for an estimate prior to touring that way you can discuss your day more in-depth during the tour. The more information you give the venue, the more they can help you during your site visit. 

3) Ask Important Questions & Take Notes! 
This does not mean you have to bring a full on wedding binder (even those these can be extremely helpful in the planning process!). When your tour appointment finally comes it is a great idea to bring a list of questions, or a checklist of important amenities you are looking for in a venue.  

Every venue is very different in their pricing and packaging so bringing a new checklist for each tour will help you to remember to ask consistent questions for all, and make sure you are getting the information that matters to you. Plus once all your tours are complete you can use the checklists and notes to compare each venue on paper before making your final decision.  

*Bring a wedding planner binder and/or notebook with you to the tour. This way you can have questions already listed on paper ready to ask and an easy way to document the answers. Plus many times you will receive pricing information during your tour and this way you can file it away to review later.  Haven’t found the right planning notebook yet? Check out our shop, Miscellaneous Market, for some cute options!

4) Remember to have fun! 
Often times wedding planning can get stressful, but it is important to remember the real reason you are planning this joyous occasion to begin with! Remember to have fun while planning and try not to stress the little things. Booking a reputable venue, and wedding vendors will help ensure your day is beautiful and stress free! 

Good luck venue hunting, let us know if we can help!

The Gracious Host

With the holiday being upon us, parties are in full swing! I don’t know about you but I was feeling a little rusty on the whole hosting front. 

fall_centerpiece_inspiration (4)

So, let’s go over a few basic tips to help you entertain this holiday season:

    • Personally, greet everyone (or as many as possible) upon arrival
    • SMILE! Sounds easy enough but hosting can be stressful at times
    • Stimulate the senses – the aroma of the food, a well-dressed table, and a little background music will do the trick!
    • Introduce the newcomers , no one should feel left out
    • Offer up a beverage upon arrival – mocktails are a must! 
    • Have plenty of food and drinks (a little variety is important too 😉
    • Enjoy yourself
    • Thank them for coming when they leave

Remember to keep the conversation light by avoiding controversial topics.

Party on, friends!

The Vendor Squad

Featured Inventory: Onyx,  Sapphire,  Harlow,  Heston

When working with couples, one of the best pieces of advice we can give them is to build a rock star vendor team. Wedding planning can be stressful and overwhelming, especially during times like these, COVID and all! And you want to ensure that you have a team of professional wedding vendors who have heaps of experience and your trust. When it comes to making tough decisions or make your special day everything you imagined you’ll have no doubt that they will make it happen. That means you can sit back, try to relax 😉 and enjoy your big day! 

Some quick tips: 

#1 See if your venue has a preferred vendor list, typically they do (I know we do, and we love everyone on it 😉)The venue has already vetted these vendors for you and know how amazing they are, all you must do is pick which one fits just right! 

#2 READ REVIEWS! Check out those reviews online, the knot, yelp, google, their website, even Instagram. Wherever you can read reviews from their past clients they will be honest and tell you all the details about how someone went the extra mile for them or maybe didn’t 😬 Either way those review may just say it all.

#3 Weddings can be expensive so, plan your budget accordingly. Rockstar vendors may not be the least expensive, and that’s not to say that the more budget friendly ones aren’t any good. But if their prices are a bit more, there’s probably a reason for it. Most likely they have earned those rates because they go above and beyond for their clients and many previous couples could tell you they were worth every penny. 

#4 Ask around to your friends.  Referrals are a big reason a lot of us wedding vendors get your business. If your friend had a great experience with someone while planning their wedding, more likely than not you’ll probably have a good one too! Afterall, we always stay on our A game for every client, knowing that we will be talked about, in a good light 😉

Hans: The Bohemian Edition

We’re all about satisfying your inner wanderlust! And baaabay bohemian décor checks off every box. The furnishings, accessories, dried floral, potted plants, artistic displays, patterns + textures are a combination of everything we love thrown together in the most stylish vignettes.

Now look, we totally understand there are so many ways to style bohemian style decor: vintage, sophisticated, global, romantic, and tropical are our favs! Which one do you prefer?

Before we even get into the styling aspect, here’s a quick picture of how it looks before we add the styling elements. Boring, right? 

Some little styling style thingy's

Let’s drop in some chic planters filled with plants – that are STILL alive!! 

Textiles, check! 

Let's switch it up!

We used more rattan and natural elements for this look. That vintage bohemian bookshelf was the perfect find! 

Shout out to our girl, Ashley Jane Photography, for always putting up with us as we “play” with inventory! You da best 🙂 

What is styling?

...it's all in the details!

Style is defined as a distinctive appearance, typically determined by the principles according to which something is designed.

When we started using the term ‘styling’ to describe our design approach, it wasn’t a word widely used to describe the design approach in weddings & events. As of late, the term is being used more and more by wedding professionals.

To us, it’s a whole mood. It’s a design aesthetic that evokes emotion and screams “You see me!” 

It’s the environment we create, with the client’s vision & personalities at the forefront. Style is RW Events’ way of transforming spaces into picturesque, photographable vignettes.

Whether you’re looking for a romantic, euro-vintage vibe or an ethnic bohemian vibe… we’ve got ya covered! 

The style aesthetic of the event feature was vintage romance. We used an assortment of vintage candelabras, candlesticks, an abundance of LED candles, and classic white floral from our girl, Flowers by Lesley

Lighting | Creating an Atmosphere

Lighting | Market lighting drapes the amphitheater at Cypress Grove Estate house

In case you didn’t already know, we’re design junkies 😉 We love working with clients and their vendors to create an atmosphere + aesthetic for their special day!

Creating a cohesive look is one of the most important aspects of any event. Think about it… even if you + your gal pals are heading to brunch or planning the next girl’s night out, you stalk all the hot spots in town on social media. And we bet you’ll choose the one that has the best overall aesthetic! We all want those insta worthy pics, right!? The same goes for your wedding – creating an atmosphere pulls everything together and gets you those gorgeous pics you’ve been dreaming of!

One of the most important details in creating an atmosphere is – you guessed it, lighting! The right lighting can make your guests feel relaxed and even excited + energized. Think romantic market lighting + candles for an evening meal and then get those guests dancing with fun, color uplights!

These enhancements can take a space from drab to fab in seconds, and create the aesthetic you’re looking for. So, if the question comes to mind, whether or not to add that extra string of market lights or perfectly placed up-lights behind your sweetheart table… we say “Go for it!” You’re going to look your best, so give your event space the glow up it deserves!

Tropical Wedding Foliage | Incorporating it Into Your Decor

If you haven’t noticed, tropical decor has kind of become {one of} our things. 😉 We feature tropical wedding foliage in all of our living walls, and love incorporating it into our other styling services! It can be tricky if you don’t have the right vendor team, and we’ve got our florist partner sharing some of her tricks of the trade!

Flowers by Lesley is out go-to when it comes to all things floral!

What are the best tropical flowers and plants for weddings?

I love protea, not a secret there. It can either have a tropical look or a boho vibe. They’re a large flower and really you can just use one for a bridesmaids bouquet with an accent of small filler flowers and foliage, or make a dramatic bridal bouquet with several additional flowers. 

Orchids are a classic tropical flower. Cymbidiums are usually mixed with roses or hydrangeas in a classic, neat style, and the gorgeous phalaenopsis make some of the most beautiful cascade bouquets on their own. They are more expensive but so beautiful and just a few stems make a statement. 

What are some unique ways to incorporate these into the wedding design?

Tropical wedding foliage alone can make a gorgeous bouquet with various shades of green and variegated with colours such as pink and reds. They are so versatile and would make for a different look. And, of course, tropical foliage makes fabulous foliage walls!

Clear glass cylinders can also be lined with foliage, camouflaging stems and giving a crisp clean look. 

What’s the best time of year to use tropical foliage + flowers?

Tropical flowers are pretty much available all year round. It really depends where they come from as to the price, but we’re fortunate to have nurseries here in Central Florida.

Your wedding day may be all about you and your new spouse, but some of your best memories will be thanks to your bridal party! Selecting the right group of friends and family to stand by your side  guarantees a few important details.

Having a beautiful bridal suite to get ready in is a nice perk.

Your crew will make the morning of your wedding fly by with great conversation, giggles, and mimosas!

Your bridal party pictures will be full of personality!

When you surround yourself with folks you love, the energy and authenticity is easily captured in photos. Genuine smiles and laughs, silly poses, inside jokes, looks love and admiration; all of this will be seen in your group pictures. When you look back at your photos 20 years from now, the fashion may be out of date, but the emotions captured will be timeless.

Your reception will be a blast!

Your wedding crew will shine all day, but they’ll really get the party going at the reception. If your best man and maid of honor are making speeches, they’ll have the opportunity to start the entertainment for the evening sharing heartfelt words and hilarious stories. You can also task your bridal party with keeping the dance floor full. If they’re having a good time, the rest of your guests will too!

Interview with a Wedding Planner | Wedding Planning Tips

Finding the right wedding planner is a big undertaking. From experience level, packages, and even meshing with their personality, there are lots of things to consider when searching for your planner. We’re so thankful to work with some of the best in Central Florida, and they’re here to answer some important questions!

Melanie Thompson, Melanie Paige Events & Design

Why should clients hire a planner?

Hiring a wedding planner for your day is so essential. Not only do we take away all the stress of planning, but also the day-of stress. Instead of having family and friends do all the work, let a planner take care of that for you! We also help you review contracts, create floor plans, help with design, making sure all the little details are taken care of, and so much more!

There's so much that goes into planning one day, and a wedding can have at least 10 vendors involved (if not more)! A planner can coordinate with the vendors so you don't have to. This way all you really need to do is show up, get married to your special someone, and have fun 😊

What are your top planning tips for couples?

Your guest count determines your budget. A budget analysis can be super helpful to help determine your budget and keep you on track. Read your contracts thoroughly and make sure anything discussed in person is in writing a well. Wedding day insurance can be a great option to protect you financially. – Shadow, The Chaos Coordinator

My first tip is that your budget and guest count go hand-in-hand. Make sure you have the talk of who is contributing to the wedding so you set your budget, as well as what the guest count will be so you can start the venue search. Having these two things taken care of first will help so much when making all the big decisions. My next tip is to make sure you book vendors as soon as you fall in love with them. Don’t wait! Due to postponements from COVID, vendors are booking up way faster than normal. Make sure you get that dream vendor of yours before it’s too late! – Melanie, Melanie Paige Events & Design

 

What should clients look for in a planner?

You have to actually like your wedding planner so it's important that you get to know the company and their team. Something else we always tell clients to consider is how often can you contact or meet with them. Make sure their package meets your needs at the stage you're at in the planning process. Ask them if they've worked at your venue before and what makes them stand out from their competition.

Caitlin Jones, Plan It Event Design & Management

What trends are you seeing for weddings?

More couples are opting for sustainability and it seems to be gaining more popularity each year. A second trend is providing experiences such as whiskey tastings, interactive late-night bites, a caricature artist, etc. Lastly, we are seeing an increase in weekday weddings. There are so many benefits to this trend and we are here for it!
                                                                                                                                                                          – Shadow, The Chaos Coordinator

Shadow Anderson, The Chaos Coordinator

How can clients make their wedding unique and stand out from the rest?

Focus on your personal style and what makes you feel at home. Pinterest can be overwhelming so don't get caught up on recreating someone else's wedding, but use it to inspire you. Create a wedding day that your guests will recognize as your own and reminds them of how you make them feel.

As a vendor, what are some of the biggest hurdles you’ve encountered on wedding day?

O boy, if I had to pick one thing being in Florida... weather. Rest assured that your wedding planner is keeping an eye on it!

Things running late is another. In some cases, but not all, things run late for multiple reasons: hair & make-up, photos, guest arrival delays, etc. The list goes on but it's up to us to keep the day running smoothly. The great thing about planners is we've dealt with these situations time after time and know how to get things back on track.

The Perfect Napkin Fold for Your Wedding

An often overlooked detail when it comes to weddings is the napkin fold. The right one can give your tablescape that little something extra. There are lots of options and we’re sharing a few of our favorites! 

Menu Card Napkin Fold

The menu card napkin fold is the quintessential fold. It works for just about any meal style and there are so many variations! Have a taller menu card? Opt for an elongated fold to fit the card properly. We also love the “layered” style. It still accommodates a menu card (or thank you card, fresh herb sprig, etc.) and adds a touch more dimension to the tablescape.

The Knot

We’re seeing more and more couples opt for “The Knot” napkin fold. Maybe it’s the name (tying the knot 😉) or maybe it’s the fun style it adds!

Image: The Lemons Photography

Custom Tie

Another favorite is the custom tie or napkin ring option. This is great if you want to add an extra pop of color, a hint of sparkle, or mixed metal to the design. Pro tip: have your napkins delivered a few days early so your bridal party or coordination team can tie them ahead of time. Believe us, your caterer will thank you for all the time saved!

Horizontal Charger Wrap Napkin Fold

If you’ve opted to feature chargers as part of your tablescape, a fantastic option for your napkin fold is the horizontal charger wrap. It’ll help keep napkins securely in place (be mindful of wind if you’re having an outdoor wedding) and can be folded to accommodate a place card or menu card.

Images: Emma Anne Photography, The Heims Photography, Shauna + Jordon Photography

Drape Fold

Last but not least is the drape fold. We don’t see this featured quite as often, but it looks lovely in photos and can be used to highlight a favor, flatware, and more!

Decided on your favorite fold? Now it’s time to choose your napkin! Check out all the fabric options from one of our favorite vendors, Over the Top Linen!

Signature Cocktail | Perfectly Paired With a Twist

Cocktails + Rentals

It’s fair to say that the décor at your wedding sets the tone for your day. Why stop there? You always can add to the ambiance by pairing your rental pieces with a signature cocktail that speaks the same language. Unsure how to match your drinks with your rentals? Don’t worry, that’s a language we are fluent in!  See some of our favorite pairings below 😉

Moscow Mule

This light and refreshing cocktail is served in its signature copper mug which speaks to the bohemian aesthetic. All drinks need a home and the Dublin bar is the perfect addition to a boho wedding and will elevate the look of a standard bar. The next pairing on the list is the Lennon chair set, this wicker throne like piece makes a statement and is the perfect addition to a head or sweetheart! We also love a boho wedding with a dash of color, the Sunflower Sofa is the perfect place for your guests to lounge as they sip their Moscow Mule!

The ingredients: Vodka, Ginger Beer, Lime Juice

 

Old Fashioned

This bourbon based cocktail has a bit of kick but plays well with a modern feel. The sleek and contemporary Aries Settee has subtle gold accent which pops next to its Royal Blue velvet. Keeping the gold accents consistent upgrade the look of your reception with the impeccably named Black Luxe Chairs and Gold Rimmed Charger for a sophisticated feel paired well with a sophisticated signature cocktail.

The ingredients: Bourbon, Bitters, Simple Syrup, Orange Wheel

French 75

The French 75 is a refreshing and citrusy, sparkling champagne cocktail with a hint of gin 😉. Champagne has always had its place on wedding day, repurpose The Gwen Bookshelf for your welcome drink display! Place at your venues entrance and as your guests walk in they’ll be able to grab this champagne cocktail as they find their seat. Keeping the French theme going enhance your ceremony setting with the Sand Louis chairs. Sipping their French 75 while seated in soft, slightly distressed chairs plays well with the overall French inspired theme. After a night of dancing and sipping your signature cocktail, your guests will surely want a comfy seat. Create a lounge set that complements perfectly with the Daisy Sofa!

The ingredients: Gin, Simple Syrup, Lemon Twist, Champagne
