Wedding Fair in Victoria BC

A special welcome to all the upcoming Brides in 2012. En Vied Events just finished our first wedding fair of the year at the Crystal Gardens in Downtown Victoria, B.C. It was great meeting all the happy and excited brides and to meet with some of the other spectacular vendors.

Our booth was a combination of 2 concept guest tables. And since I moved to the Island I couldn’t resist to include a beach theme table in the booth. The main centerpiece was a tall vase filled with teal sand and manzanita branches with white orchids hanging from the crystals on the branches. My favorite is the crystal chaivari chairs and glassware that allowed the table linen to stand out. Hopefully we will be replicating a similar look for our Brides to come as there seemed to be a great number of Brides that are planning a beach-theme for their wedding decor. The table colors were based off of water and sand, and everything crystal was the accent. If you are interested in a look for your wedding contact us and we can customize a look to be truly unique to your wedding.

Another trend is anything Vintage, there were many Brides on the search for Vintage themed weddings. There are so many ways to customize a vintage wedding, my favorite is to use vintage lamps and convert them in to candle holders and add flowers to the base of each lamp to add height. Each centerpiece will be unique but the whole theme will be carried out from table to table adding unity to your look by using the same flowers and colors at every table, which will ensure a uniform and well pulled together look for your reception. You can then add other vintage touches with your table number as you can use vintage frames in a finish to compliment your wedding, again every frame can be slightly different but using the same finish will ensure a uniform look to your wedding. I found one such example from The Knot.

The options are truly endless, feathers are very trendy as are pearls and gems. Accents of white feather balls accented with antique brooches could be used as aisle markers for your Wedding Ceremony and then transformed into your table centerpieces by adding them on top of a tall cylinder vase, or vases 3 stagered in staggered heights would be very stunning.

Please feel free to contact us at En Vied Events for a complimentary consultation and let me bring my inspiration and ideas to plan your perfect Wedding or Event.
