I was so excited when I heard I was going to be a vendor at The Big Fake Wedding in NYC. The whole aspect of the wedding expo is what drew me to it; it is not your average expo! The "bride and groom" are a couple that are actually renewing their vows. The “wedding guests” are those who buy a ticket to the event. They get to see all the vendors in action. As a planner, I designed three reception tables along with the entrance area.
We were given an inspiration board, which was titled European Sky. This was a very feminine theme, with blush pink and champagne colors, beautiful flowers, and all things girly.
Table 5. I wanted to do a table that had completely no flowers. Not everyone wants flowers as main centerpieces so I decided to do a whole table runner with pillar candles and blue tulle. The menu's were designed by the awesome ladies at Engaging Papers
Table 7. I used a lot of brown and copper tones for this table and had one big centerpiece with roses, eucalyptus, and branches. A lace table runner added a feminine touch with tea lights and candle sticks. The calligraphy was done by Cariad Lane Calligraphy who is extremely talented!
Table 9. I always love seeing hanging floral installations and I figured why not try and do it. Hanging it was a challenge and pretty hysterical but with the help from the ladies from East Coast Entertainment it was successful! I wanted this table to have a lot of greenery and flowers. All white flowers in bud vases and green leaves covered the table.
