Tablescape Inspiration from Past Events

My favorite part of wedding design is the reception layout.  The layout you choose has a huge impact on the overall "feel" of the space.  It can add interest and dimension, and it can turn an ordinary room into something extraordinary.  Here are some of my favorite layouts from weddings past.  Enjoy (and get inspired) :)

Happy planning,

Traditions To Celebrate: German Bridal Cup

Melissa and Jeremiah were married almost two weeks ago and while planning their wedding, I learned a {new to me} tradition. The German Bridal Cup has such a fun story and it adds such an interactive experience for your guests to watch during toasts. It's also a great homage to your family's heritage!

According to the legend, Kunigunde, a noble mistress in the town of Nuremberg, fell in love with a young, ambitious goldsmith and wanted to marry him instead of the many rich and titled suitors who already asked for her hand.

Kunigunde's father reluctantly made a deal with his daughter. If the goldsmith could make a chalice from which two people could drink at the same time without spilling a single drop, her lover would be freed and the couple could marry.

Inspired by his love, the goldsmith created a masterpiece. He fashioned a chalice in the shape of his true love with a hollow skirt that served as a cup, and upraised arms that held a bucket from which a second drinker could sip. With the challenge met, the nobleman freed the young man and allowed the couple to marry.

To this day, the chalice remains a symbol of love, faithfulness, and good luck and is used during the wedding toast.
