Wanna know the secret behind a magazine worthy wedding set up? What it takes to make your wedding breathtakingly swoon worthy? What will have your guests talking about your wedding for days and days? It’s all about going the extra mile to take your decorative details to unexpected levels of pretty. A table overhang that perfectly frames a table or setup in a wonderfully whimsical way is a guaranteed way to achieve that magazine wow factor every single time. I may be biased though since I’ve got just a bit of a personal obsession with them. So here are a few examples to plead my case. You be the judge!

Tips to Creating Your Own Overhang: 

  • First and foremost, make sure your venue will allow an overhang. If so, check to see that they have rigging in place to facilitate one, i.e. exposed beams or pipes.
  • Whenever possible, work with a professional to create your custom overhang. The logistics behind pulling one together are complicated. A professional can also bring in rigging if your venue doesn’t have any.
  • If having an outdoor wedding tap into what Mother Nature has to offer and use low hanging branches on large trees.
  • For best visual results hang your overhang components at different heights and depths to give dimension to your arrangement.
  • Remember that what goes up must come down. If managing an overhang on your own, before committing to it, keep in mind that you’ll have to go back to the venue for tear down the next day.

Wedding Theme Inspiration: Art Deco

art deco wedding

It has been a week of celebrating all things sparkly on The Details Blog, and we’re ending things off with a bang!  If you started your wedding planning at any point in the last year and picked up a bridal magazine, checked out a wedding blog, or visited Pinterest, there’s no way that you haven’t come across one or two {or 20!} Art Deco inspired wedding ideas. Brought into the spotlight by the ever popular 2013 revival of The Great Gatsby movie, the Art Deco wedding theme saw a massive comeback and continues to remain a top choice for 2014. And why not? Brimming with decadence and glamor, what’s not to love!

So today we’re sharing a peek into our very own Art Deco inspired wedding shoot featured in this year’s Weddingstar’s print magazine, complete with all the design details, elements and products you need to make the look yours. Get ready to indulge!

The Look – Glamor Galore

No room for shyness here! The Art Deco look is defined by the dramatic and the bold. It’s where Old Hollywood romance meets the pleasure of a bit of self-indulgence, and where sophistication is a must. It’s an unmistakably mature and confident look, and it’s definitely got us blushing!

The Design – Distinct Luxury

Only things that sparkle and shine need apply. The distinctively strong linear geometric shapes that make up an Art Deco design are softened up by golden dazzling details. Whether it be glittering accents or soft candlelight, all the elements come together to create an opulent and luxurious finish.

The 3 Easy Steps

Step 1. Using a clean cloth make sure your luminary is free of all dirt and dust.

Step 2. In a very well ventilated area, using an up and down motion for an uneven finish, spray on the adhesive. Go light with the spray and keep it concentrated to the top of the luminary.

Step 3. Lightly dust glitter directly onto the sprayed area. {Tip: Take care to avoid a heavy handed application. A thin finish produces the prettiest effect, allowing the candlelight to shine through}

The {Glitzy} End Result

Can you believe it’s that simple? Makes you want to make tons of them doesn’t it! And that’s a good thing because they do look best in groups. For an added touch of interest, alternate the ends of the luminaries you’re spraying. You’ll get a lovely effect from the various heights of candlelight.
