Top 5 Wedding Venues for Spring

March 9, 2017

The beginning of spring reminds us of that fabulous week of spring break back in our school days. We’ve got a major case of wanderlust. What better way to escape the day-to-day than by dreaming about these amazing venues, and the fabulous linen and chargers that could be used to create stunning memorable events. Let’s go on an adventure!

Vineyard – Thomas Fogarty Winery

Magical views of rolling hills and crashing waves set the tone for a dramatic and unforgettable event. We wouldn’t want to take away from the vistas, but rather enhance the experience. We love the mixture of sparkle and rustic items – we think it would be perfect for this setting!

What is a more picturesque background for a special event than towering snow capped mountains? Here again, the great outdoors would take the main stage for our mountain inspired soiree. Play up the rustic ambiance with woven fabrics, linen, and velvet. Wouldn’t plaid make an awesome addition to this design scheme?

Warm sun and salty ocean breezes makes this the ideal tropical retreat. A beach wedding provides plenty of natural scenery and decor. Let your imagination go wild with accessories and decor. Embrace the tropical feel with bright and whimsical colors.

If bright lights and the big city are your idea of heaven – a lawn party amid the city would be divine. Play up all the lights you see from your vantage point with glitter and sparkle. Simply put – there's no other option but to go full glam for this big apple affair.

Who doesn’t dream of a sprawling estate with over the top opulence? Planning an event here takes us back to our Downton Abbey days. Choose a theme that is royal, with a unique look. Staying true to the gilded décor, stick to a more traditional design with plenty of glitz.
