• The Not Wedding Take-Aways, pt. ii

    September 10th, 2013

    The Not Wedding event left us with a notebook full of fresh party (and wedding!) ideas, so we’ve collected a few of the best to share with you today…

    We love the idea of incorporating floral graphics through your entire suite of wedding paper products…invites, menus, programs, etc. EOH designed these sweet menus with a floral wreath surrounding a Pablo Picasso love quote. Find something similar here!

    We’ve seen leather accents popping up on skirts, dresses, and sweaters…but tablescapes?! We loved this unexpected touch. The caramel leather table runner adds something modern and sleek to reception decor.

    The intricate architecture and exposed brick of this venue make a lovely backdrop for wedding party photos. One Cannery Row in Nashville hosts some really beautiful weddings that have that vintage, industrial vibe.

    Gold trophies (or cups!) as vases were one of our favorite elements. A small bunch of flowers in deep hues nestle perfectly into the old-school trophy cup.

    (In our humble opinion!) Otis James bowties are one of the best locally crafted goods to come out of Nashville. Their cotton bowties in classic patterns like seersucker, plaid, and stripes add a sophisticated, yet playful addition to any man’s suit. Plus, how dreamy is a line full of bowtied groomsmen?!

    Suspending armloads of flowers and greenery over a table was unbelievably striking from the minute we walked into the party space! If you could pull off this project, it would totally floor your guests. We picture this being sweet at an intimate dinner party for friends, too.

    Matt G Photo shot a fun video of the day that makes you feel like you were there, too! (And we wish you had been!) Watch it here.

    Lastly, we want to give a HUGE thank you to the entire Not Wedding team! They were a delight to work with and the magic behind making this whole day come together.
