Modern Southern Garden // Featured Wedding

We had the pleasure of providing rentals for Victoria & Jonathan’s southern garden inspired wedding, featured on Every Last Detail (head over there to see all the details from this wedding)! The event was hosted at Haus 820, an industrial warehouse for special events – giving this wedding a fun, modern twist!

From the planner: 
The vast dessert display was set on a vintage ice cream cart and featured a 4 tier, hand-painted cake to match the invitation suite and printed goods. The southern garden wedding was inspired by Victoria’s mother’s Charleston upbringing complete with a flower bucket display. Reminiscent of a flower market, the metal bucket stand filled with florals served as the seating chart for the evening. Small escort cards were connected to each bucket with tiny white flower magnets. The room was filled with romance from the soft blue and pastel tones, twinkling candlelight, crape myrtle trees lining the space, tall greenery centerpieces and an abundance of fluffy blooms throughout. At each place setting an etched charger sat beneath a blue hemstitch napkin wrapped between white dinner plates and mismatched vintage salad plates that tied in beautifully with hints of soft pastels in the blooms.

Thursday Inspiration { Double Duty }

An easy way to cut costs is to have various weddings items do double duty. These simple paper bags are great because not only do they serve as programs, but they also hold flowers petals {perfect for showering the newly weds as they walk back down the aisle}! Another item that can serve a dual purpose – favors! Depending on what you choose, they can also be used as escort cards =)

Tidbits & Tips {Groom’s Gift}

If you and the groom decide to exchange gifts before the wedding {we love this idea, btw}, keep these tips in mind:

  • Don’t add stress – weddings are expensive, so if you don’t need another expense think about skipping this gesture. Or for those of you who are super crafty, create something handmade that won’t break the bank!
  • Be creative – write a poem/song, create a scrapbook, or if your fiance can take a joke try something like this:
