Letting Your Personality Shine Through on Your Wedding Day

View More: http://jason-gina.pass.us/snowmass-styled-1

At Gold Leaf, we compile a list of our favorite wedding day trends every season. We’re always looking ahead to see what new elements are being introduced, but we also like to remind brides to stay true to themselves and their hubbys-to-be. Let your personality shine through on your wedding day!   Brown-88 One of the biggest concerns we hear from our brides is trying to force a trend or incorporate a last minute idea because it's the 'it' thing at the moment. We work with many brides that have a wide range of tastes and ideas. We’re here to help guide each one through her wedding planning process. Keep in mind that your grandchildren will likely see your wedding photos one day and if you’re wearing a tree branch crown with a black tie gown, they’re probably going to wonder what grandma was thinking the day she said 'I do'. View More: http://jason-gina.pass.us/jessica-andrewBlack tie gowns (spoiler alert: black tie is 'in' again) are ah-mah-zing, as are delicate, earthy flower crowns, but we can tell when someone is incorporating a trend for the sake of it. And we recommend against that. There are subtle ways to bring in a trend you like, which we will go over as wedding season gets underway. Let your personality shine through on your wedding dayGold Leaf Brides, we love you as you are. We admire your beauty, love and willingness to cut a rug. And those are all the qualities you’ll need on your wedding day. So, do not worry if you can’t incorporate a seasonal trend, one that will have you shaking your head in a few years time, into your big day. Let your true personality shine through on your wedding day! All-Photos--Color-0636Let your personality shine through on your wedding day! Did we mention, we love you? Now go be true to YOU!

When Smaller Weddings can be Better

How to Make a Large Wedding Personal and When Smaller Weddings can be Better

Flashy, big, and over the top events have long been the favored route for many when planning their party. We’re in search of the awe factor, that certain pizazz that gets the guests talking. But size doesn’t always matter. In fact, sometimes, smaller weddings can be better. smaller weddings can be better In the past year, intimate events have come into the mainstream. We constantly have brides and other clients desiring warmer and more personalized experiences. And we’re loving it! image 4 Here’s why smaller weddings can be better… While big, festive events are often heavily talked about, an intimate event has the opportunity to leave a lasting impression. In a wedding setting, for instance, two families have the opportunity to truly get to know each other and form a lasting bond. When guest lists top 300, the bride and groom do not have as much time to spend talking to each of their guests. And, often, unwanted family members appear when guest lists get too big. smaller weddings can be better However, if Dad is insisting on inviting the family dentist or the estranged fourth cousin, a bigger event can still be made to feel smaller with simple, personalized touches. This helps the long list of attendees become more familiar with the bride and groom. We’ve gathered a few of our favorite personalized touches that make an event feel intimate and personal, regardless of its size. A few ideas since we have so many and love to personalize events, include: - Personalized chargers Aspen Wedding Planner - Themed tables such as these tables with the couples favorite rock band names [caption id="attachment_1032" align="aligncenter" width="736"]Photo from Pinterest Photo from Pinterest[/caption] - Escort cards that include the table names of your favorite places in the area you are getting married or nicknames for some of your guests. smaller wedding can be better - Photos of you and your guests strung up at the rehearsal dinner Smaller weddings can be better   Looking for more reasons why smaller weddings can be better?

Remember that delicious cup of hot cocoa we spoke about earlier? How could you forget, right?! Your guests will love hot cocoa or spiked eggnog towards the end of the night.

Long Intimate Table

Hello friends! You might be thinking of a way to create a more intimate seating arrangement at your wedding and we've got just the one you're looking for. The long intimate table for your reception is something that we love here at Gold Leaf Events. It creates an ambiance of togetherness and love. When people are sat at one long intimate table, no one feels left out, that they are at a table in the back corner near the bathroom, or too far from the newlyweds. If you have too many guests to sit at just one table, the seating arrangement can be split into two tables just as nicely (depending on your venue space of course)! Having a long intimate table has such a dramatic impact on the look and feel of a wedding, we can't help but love it. Here are some photos of past events we designed here at Gold Leaf Events! DT long table Long tables with alternating height of center pieces allows guests to chat side-by-side and across the table, too! KB long table Having low centerpieces opens up the space beautifully!
