Cocktail hour is the perfect time for guests to mix and mingle while enjoying delicious food, drinks, and entertainment. Over the past few years couples have decided to add more interactive elements to their cocktail hour—and we love all the wedding food station ideas, which allow guests to make their way around the room and choose for themselves various delectable and scrumptious items their hosts have planned for them. Couples should work with their caterer, event designer or florist and stationer, to create not just a delicious menu, but a beautiful display that complements the rest of the wedding décor. Check out these delicious wedding food stations and WOW your guests.
Fall wedding season is just around the corner and I suppose they’re hurrying up with all the preparations for couples who’re getting married this autumn. I love the adorable autumn colors like crimson, chocolate, yellow, green and burgundy for inspiring fall wedding décor. Many of us choose outdoor fall weddings if the weather allows as trees with colorful leaves and a natural carpet of them compose the best wedding decorations ever! I’d love to help with that and inspire with some really amazing fall wedding arches that’ll be perfect for any kind and theme of an outdoor fall wedding. Though different types of wedding arches have both cultural and religious significance, modern couples embrace the curve for aesthetic and décor purposes, too. A beautiful arbor can anchor an outdoor ceremony, serve as a photograph backdrop, or bring new meaning to your celebration. Check out these amazing outdoor fall wedding arches and get inspired.

Your wedding will likely be the biggest party you’ll ever throw—making it the perfect time to take the phrase “larger than life” literally. One of the most fun parts of planning a wedding is expressing yourself through your theme, style and décor—and this includes flowers. Your centerpieces play a major role in adding a personal flair to the ambience of your reception. Beautiful floral arrangements are always a major focal point during any wedding reception. If you want to ensure that your centerpieces make a lasting impression on your guests, it’s best to go tall. While smaller compote centerpieces are gorgeous in their own right, vertical arrangements are unexpected additions to wedding tables and are a sure way to wow your attendees as soon as they walk into the room. And the best part about these lofty arrangements? They can suit any wedding style. Check out these tall wedding centerpieces and get inspired.
