SIMPLY PUBLISHED: {Ruffled} The NotWedding Savannah

So excited to see The NotWedding Savannah up on Ruffled today!!! It was a very interesting experience being involved in this alternative bridal show. Unlike other shows this event is like a faux wedding with a ceremony where there is a real couple renewing their vows, then a dinner party and even dancing. For this bridal show we designed the ceremony backdrop, provided gowns + designed two reception tables for the event. It was a lot of fun being involved and a lot of work but so worth it!! We first off were given a mood board to inspire us and let me tell you that was probably the biggest challenge for both Adrienna + I. The mood board was very preppy + southern... two things that neither of us are really at all... But we were up for the challenge. 

We handpainted canvases with a floral pattern in the colors of the mood board. When we got done we both looked at them and thought... geez these are not us at all. Yes they may have fit the theme but we still wanted them to be us and to still show our style. So what did we do? We spray painted geometric shapes onto them and then we fell in love with them after that. If you visit Ivory + Beau they now are the artistic decoration behind our front desk. For the reception tables we borrowed linens from Ultra Pom (sequin linens + some organza linens.) For two of our tables we did a more southern preppy look with a large glitterized holder with flowing flowers. For the other two tables we went a whole different direction and did something that was really us. We made hanging centerpieces using Bells of Ireland over a paper triangle table runner with super super mini yellow painted bottles with mini flowers. Both tables we had bow napkins from Dot + Army. All in all we had a lot of fun getting creative with a theme that was not something we would have ever chosen to do on our own! 

For the dresses we had our bride rock a soft organza + lace Sarah Seven gown for the ceremony then our glitter sequin Sarah Seven dress for the reception! We love that the glitter sequin dress can also be ordered in short and actually just had a bride fall in love with it for her reception too!! 

Mackensey Alexander, Stephie Hicks (who photographed The Surprise Proposal Shoot) and Rach Lea were the 3 photographers for the event!! It's so fun looking at all the images from the event with such different photography styles!! So anyway, go on over to Ruffled today to check out the entire event!!!

  1. The floor flakes are optional to use, but I do suggest it.

    And what you spend in flooring you get back in comfort, ease and good
    looks. These websites may also include the feedbacks from the customers
    who have purchased their product which may help you in choosing a good floor.
