Choose your wedding table linens with ease

Planning the details of your wedding can be daunting, and even difficult. From deciding which plates will adorn your tables to the color of your floral arrangements, every little detail needs consideration. When you are not experienced with weddings or planning them, it can certainly be difficult to know where to start!

With all of the aspects of planning a wedding, one big decision is the outcome of your table linens, as they will be the staple of your d├ęcor. Here at I Thee Wed, we are passionate about creating the perfect wedding day for you and your partner, and we believe that planning such a beautiful day should not be so terribly stressful, which is why we have gathered some helpful tips to assist you in choosing your wedding table linens, so be sure to continue reading to learn more:

·         Determine your table needs. From your guest list to the style of your decor, determining your table’s needs is crucial in planning your linens. Your guest list lets you know just how many table linens you will need, but, it is also important that you do not forget to include your cake table, Mr. and Mrs. table or any other special display tables that you will have at your big day. Your table styles will also determine the type of linens you will need, as the long banquet tables will require much different linens than the round cake table. So, count the number of linens and the shapes that you will need to make sure that each table is beautifully covered.
·         Pick your colors. There is no right or wrong approach to take when choosing your linen colors. Overall, this is your big day, and you can decorate it any way that you would like. Whether you are bringing elements of your theme into your table linens, or contrasting your overall wedding colors, it is important that you make a decision so that you can begin ordering your linens. You can bring a taste of the season to your venue with linens in deep red and orange hues for Fall, fresh pastel colors for Spring and white for Winter. There are numerous possibilities, so finding the one that makes you and your partner happy is what is most important.
·         Try something new. Sometimes new can be scary, especially on such an important day, but it can’t hurt to look. You could be pleasantly surprised as you come across a linen that you did not even know existed, so do not be afraid to ask around or look online for a little inspiration. You could come up with a linen choice that, looking back later on, was unthinkable to not have, so you never know what you may discover.

There are numerous linen options for you to choose from for your big day, and choosing the linens that you feel will bring your wedding to its full potential is crucial. Here at I Thee Wed, we are passionate about bringing your wedding visions to life. So, if you are ready to start planning your greater Cincinnati area big day, contact us to schedule your consultation.

A Venue Coordinator vs. A Wedding Coordinator

Unfortunately, things haven't changed much in the wedding industry regarding the confusion between a venue coordinator and a wedding coordinator. Couples still seem very confused between these two roles and end up not hiring a wedding coordinator after speaking with their venue. Their day ends up in disappointment because they assumed they would have that one, key person to go to and rely on for their entire wedding day. Instead, they have to wait until they walk through their venue doors to receive some coordination by their venue coordinator or banquet captain, who's primary responsibility is to the get the meal out on time and at an ideal temperature.

So, when you begin visiting venues and you learn that a venue has an event coordinator who tells you that you do not need to hire a wedding coordinator/planner, ask them if they will show up at the hotel while you and your girls are getting ready earlier in the day. Ask if they will be with you …

Emily + Tom

One of the perks of being in this business as a planner is the opportunity that we're given to really get to know our clients. I worked with such a special family last season and felt privileged and honored to be their planner. I felt like "one of the family" with this bride's family. The closeness and openness they have with each other and the way they are enjoying life is so refreshing and inspiring. They possess a unique family closeness that I can only hope for with my family as my children grow older. Emily was so easy-going and appreciative when it came to planning her wedding, as well as with the particulars that her mom and dad expressed. Her groom Tom was equally as expressive. These two are so much in love and I had so much fun working with them!

I love this pic of the girls kissing their mama!

In case you're wondering what this is, they are "Rolling on the River"!
