Planning a destination wedding is on many brides’ wish list, but due to a number of factors—budget, guest travel, language barriers, etc.—it often isn’t a reality. Luckily, you and your guests don’t have to board a plane for a villa-style wedding.

Choosing a style for an event can be tough. There’s so much to choose from, and often, styles are opposed—one person likes vintage chic, another person likes dreamy romantic décor, and someone else likes all modern, sharp lines. It’s tough to marry these ideas and themes together, but it’s absolutely doable, and it looks wonderful when done right.

One trend we are noticing again and again is the use of long tables to distinguish honored guests. These tables demand attention, and get every guest talking about the feature table.
This trend has taken over restaurants for some time, and we’re seeing the crossover to events more and more, likely for the same reasons. Communal dining tables in restaurants are designed to keep conversation flowing, and they encourage more interaction among guests. What could be more perfect for a special event?
A long distinguished guest table at any formal dinner sets the tone for the entire evening, and is replacing the sweetheart table at most weddings.

Summertime is perfect for sunshine and sipping Sangria, the fruit-infused wine drink. In addition to being a delicious drink, Sangria is the perfect inspiration for a summertime tablescape. It’s got bold, rich hues, and when paired with navy blue and teal, it’s reminiscent of a vacation to a villa.
