Bohemian Weddings

BOHEMIAN WEDDINGS

Being identified as “bohemian” has gone from being an outcast to uniquely different. From the colorful flowers to the distinctive ambiance, bohemian weddings are up and coming. The term bohemian in the past has been characterized by someone who is socially unconventional and especially interested in the arts. Over the years the term has turned into a funky and individualistic trait that is to be desired. The word bohemian, used in this sense, comes from the French “gypsy”.

BOHEMIAN WEDDINGS – THE GROOM

A bohemian groom is known for being slightly hipster; unconventional, if you will. Although his appearance may not be as unique as the bride, his charm brings a whole new element to the term bohemian.

BOHEMIAN WEDDINGS – CENTERPIECES

Bohemian’s love color. Color in everything from flowers to tablecloths to cakes. It brings happiness and uniqueness into anything and everything you want. Take the table setting below, for example. We see a green tablecloth with beautiful colorful flowers in the middle in a rustic setting. This will make for a wedding that will not easily be forgotten.

Colorful flowers, such as ranunculus, draw attention to the bride while offsetting her white dress, making her stand out and be memorable.

BOHEMIAN WEDDINGS – FLOWER GIRLS

Little girls can be bohemian too! This lovely flower girl is rocking the messy hair and fashionable forehead headband, making her stand out and adding an extra charm to an already unique wedding.

BOHEMIAN WEDDINGS – CAKES

Bohemian’s are known for being one with nature. Being unconventional and rustic makes the term bohemian what it is today. That being said, earthy cake themes are the perfect addition to your bohemian wedding. The cake above takes nature and turns it into something elegant and, again, memorable.

Nautical Wedding

NAUTICAL WEDDING

Ahoy, Matey! Are you the type of bride who is “Naut-y”? A nautical wedding may be for you! The word nautical pertains to sailors, ships, or navigation through bodies of water… We want to set sail and float away on this love boat!

NAUTICAL WEDDING – TABLE DECOR

Sailors’ knots & wooden wheels create waves for the eyes to swim across. When we think of nautical weddings we think of very traditional reds, whites & blues… the deep red cherries add beautiful bold color to the neutral base of the table & are a delicious summer fruit!

NAUTICAL WEDDING

White hydrangeas are a great flower to include in a nautical wedding theme. They go well with colored ribbon such as blue & white striped ribbon which is very common with nautical themes.

NAUTICAL WEDDING – CAKES

The gold anchor, pops of red flowers & rope lining the cake make this dessert ship shape! This nautical wedding cake is made of fondant overlay and fondant blue & gold detailing.

NAUTICAL BRIDE

Lacy vintage wedding dresses flow very well with the nautical theme. These dresses look traditional & could be short or long depending on your venue or taste. Going along with the blue & white striped theme… the bride’s shoes are a great way to get those wonderful bold colors into the wedding attire…swipe on some red lipstick & you are ready for your first mate!

NAUTICAL WEDDING – BOUQUET

We have mentioned our love of non-floral bouquets before… but we LOVE this seashell bouquet! This type of bouquet goes wonderfully with the nautical wedding theme and is a memorable keepsake that will last for a lifetime. Tie this bouquet with a little striped ribbon & you are set!

NAUTICAL GROOM

The pinstriped groom’s attire & Sperry shoes are perfect for a nautical wedding. The red, white & blue tie with the starfish boutonniere compliment the bride’s bouquet & overall ambiance of the wedding. Men who boat are typically seen wearing boating shoes such as these & would be comfortable for all the groomsmen as well.

If you have any nautical wedding ideas of your own we would love to see them and chat! Send them to admin@firstclassweddings.com – We can’t wait to hear from you!

Gatsby Wedding

GATSBY WEDDINGS

Are you Gatsby’d out yet??? We certainly aren’t! This trend took off very quickly in the wedding industry! Brides just cannot get enough of that Gatsby! Who could? Gatsby weddings are classy, high-end & so visually appealing! The black & gold accent colors add instant glamour to these weddings.

Did you know that the word gatsby refers to a type of South African style sandwich? However, the word gatsby is also a synonym for cool, swanky, & impressive – exactly how it is perceived in the movie, The Great Gatsby…the book about the “unattainable dream” is completely attainable with the expertise of First Class Weddings. We encourage you to “Live your Dream”…

Black & gold themed cakes are a major hit in the Gatsby world! These beautiful cakes are elegant and are just too pretty to cut into!

Crystal chandeliers hanging high above the ceiling add a stunning vintage look and make the lighting in the room romantic & intimate! Crystals, gems & pearls make for a lovely old fashioned feel and make you, as a bride, look glamourous!

GATSBY BRIDE

Are you a roaring 20s bride? Bold black eyeliner & light eyeshadows make bride’s eyes pop! Don’t forget some pearls & gold earrings to hang below that gorgeous roller-style hair!

We LOVE these gorgeous earrings! These cascading tear drop earrings are a bold statement and would look lovely underneath wavy hair!

GATSBY GROOM

As depicted in the book & movies, Mr. Gatsby is a rich man who happened to come into a lot of money during his life. He lives a glamourous lifestyle & knows how to throw a party. This Gatsby groom is rockin’ his white tuxedo while looking sharp & is ready to be the life of the party.

All that glitters can be gold! Sparkling confetti falling from the high ceilings screams “Gatsby!”. These luxurious wedding details are extravagant & make for a stunning wedding. Black & gold were considered to be popular colors in the 20s when throwing parties. These colors once signified your status & class.

Gold silverware & gold rimmed plates are simple yet high-end. The fold of the napkin resembles that of a bow tie which all of the gentlemen wore to the parties that Mr. Gatsby threw in his mansion…

If you really want to make a grand exit, think about your transportation! In the 20′s the car was a newer invention that was coming in cool shapes & sizes. Back then cars were for the wealthy who were amongst the few who could afford to own them… & if you were seen driving off in one of these babys you would be making a memorable exit!

Place Cards

ESCORT CARDS

Escort cards – typically mistaken as place cards, are organized in a central location usually near the entrance to a wedding reception…These cards have the name of the guest & the number or name of table that they are seated at during the reception. Escort cards inform the guests of their assigned table while place cards let your guests know their assigned seat, if you have a specific seating chart,  at that table. First Class Weddings is here to keep you “in the know” about all things weddings!

THEMED ESCORT CARDS

How adorable are these miniature easels with little canvas paintings displayed on them? Maybe you are a bride that loves to be creative & paint or water color. How cool would it be to have mini paintings & such used as your escort cards…they could even double as your wedding favor! This would be a great way to give something personal to all of your guests. Theses feather escort cards, featured below, would be great especially for a peacock themed wedding! Instead of using these white feathers you could instead use individual peacock feathers to go along with your theme!

Feathers would be great for a light and soft wedding… maybe you’ll be on a beach instead! Check out these awesome beach chair escort cards. Mini umbrellas instantly make me feel like I am on a tropical island!

From beaches to sailboats… these miniature chairs and sailboats make me want to be on the water! These would  also be great little wedding favors to give out at your wedding.

BEVERAGE CARDS

Signature drinks are a great & creative way to have people find their seats! Guests can get thirsty after the ceremony before enjoying a meal… why not have personalized mason jars, little bottles of alcohol or cups with cute straws as your escort cards?

FLORAL ESCORT CARDS

Flowers & plants work perfectly for all season weddings! Once guests find their names and bring their flowers & such to their tables they instantly add beautiful colors & details to the tables. You are decorating without having to lift a finger! Floral escort cards are another great idea for wedding favors!

If you have any cool ideas or escort cards from your wedding please send a picture & description to admin@firstclassweddings.com – we can’t wait to hear from you!

Ombré Wedding

Red to white ombre wedding cake

 Ombré Wedding

Ombré is a French term, it means the shading and transition of color from light to dark, from one shade to another.  Traditionally this term referred to fabric and ombré has definitely made it’s mark in the fashion world, however recently this style has blown up! We are seeing ombré designs on everything from hair to nails and of course, all things weddings!  Wedding cakes, invitations, backdrops and flowers, ombré weddings are one wedding trend that is sure to stick around!

Table Linens

White ruffled rose petal table linens

Table Linens – Flower Petals

Table linens play a huge part in the overall look of your wedding reception.  Unique tablecloths, napkins and chair covers will give your table settings a unique flair. Choose soft palettes and textures to create a romantic look or use bold patterns and bright colors for a dramatic feel. There are rental companies in your area and some have showrooms, others do not. Destination weddings are much more limited so be sure to contact us to give you the scoop on reputable companies in your area.

 

Eat Cake table linens

Typically you will have a table for the guest book, the cake, seating assignments and most importantly dining tables.  Choose table linens that match your overall color theme and compliment your wedding décor. The most budget friendly options are standard white linens.  You will have plenty of options so don’t be afraid to create your own theme like the one shown above.

Black and White Stripped Table Linens

Table Linens – Bold Stripes

If you are looking for something more unique, striped linens will make the table décor truly your own.  Custom linens come in a variey of colors and sizes.  Colorful, lace, sheer, decal printed, embroidered and sparkle accented linens truly make a lasting impression.

Consider adding a table runner!  A table runner will add color and frame your centerpieces.  Table runners are available in multiple widths, colors and designs and are not limited solely to fabric.  Wooden or bamboo runners are perfect for rustic or tropical weddings. And Mother Nature can also provide a unique table runner using Monstera leaf, Flower beds, Stones, Sand, and more…

 

Yellow Bow Napkins

Adding a splash of color is a simple way to dress up your tables and tie in your color scheme.  Be creative with napkin folds!  From Bows (as seen above), folded menu pockets, bird of paradise and fans, you literally have a hundred different folds to choose from. If a fold doesn’t tickle your fancy then maybe opt for napkin rings and flower accents to create a look that is fun and unexpected!
