"This is a sample for a September wedding in Philadelphia. We used shades of cream/white florals with a tiny touch of green. The linens were custom gold beaded english lace over an ivory satin linen. We had gold plated flatware, gold ball glass chargers and dinner plates and tons of candlelight. We brought in a pop of color with the pale turquoise napkin finished off with a rhinestone buckle treatment, but offered the bride another option of a white napkin pocketfold with a rhinestone pin and feather treatment."
Creating sample set-ups like these (and sourcing the products) are just one benefit of working with a planner. But if you are dedicated to creating your look all on your own, be sure you check out Etsy, Artbeads.com and your local craft stores for ideas and supplies.
