One of our favorite things about Bridal Extravaganza of Atlanta is getting to see vendors’ designs come to life with wedding-ready displays. Displays always incorporate the latest trends, and are a way for brides to sit down at a perfectly designed table and envision being at their wedding reception.

What was your inspiration for this design? My inspiration for the design I chose to showcase at this fall Bridal Extravaganza bridal show was the change in seasons. I find that some brides are torn between the time of year they should have their wedding and because of those brides I wanted to share a design that could be presented in the spring or summer as well as the fall or winter.
What color schemes, textures, and themes were included? To ensure that a bride will be able to see that she could use this design any time of the year, I incorporated colors of fuchsia and purple to the color scheme for my design table. While keeping a clean look but creating a modern edge to the design, I selected a gray stain linen accented with gray linen napkins embroidered in black, along with acrylic Chiavari chairs and acrylic place cards. The acrylic place cards made for that extra special detail touch that every bride plans for on their Big Day!
What’s your design process like? When beginning my design process, I consider the venue or location as well as the time of the day of the event. With this design, I was not familiar with where my design table would be which made designing the tablescape more exciting. When I am on unfamiliar grounds, I always go for more of neutral or diverse color scheme to make sure the design makes a statement and still relay the message of a modern clean design look and feel.
What keeps you inspired? What keeps me inspired as a planner is meeting new people and creating new relationships on a daily and weekly basis. Not to mention I love the creativity my career offers me, not too many people can start their work day off by saying what new will happen today and be really excited about the new things rather it be clients, wedding professionals or learning something new.
What is your favorite thing about weddings? My favorite things about weddings are seeing the enthusiasm and excitement when my clients enter the ballroom and see everything that they have spent days, hours, as well as their hard, earn money on come together and exceed their exception. Not to mention at the end of the night when the client leaves and they say thank you for a planning a great wedding, but when their guest is leaving and say thank you for a great time; It lets me know that I have done my job!
