3 Types of Event Drapery Fabric

Whether it’s a Pinterest mood board, a fave Instagram aesthetic, or an idea in your head, you have the look and feel of your wedding day nailed down. If you want to achieve a particular look and feel, you will want all the details right.

A perfect wedding entails the right flowers, venue, colors, and drapery fabric! Yet, drapery fabric often gets overlooked, so let’s talk about how to pick the right style. 

Sheer Drapery

Sheer drapery might be your jam if you’re after a romantic, dreamy, light, and airy feel. Sheer fabric is lightweight, great for uplighting, and easy to manipulate into whatever you need. It gives off a soft, flowy look that is perfect for layering! 

Poly Satin Drapery

If elegance and high-class vibes are your goal, poly satin drapery is the fabric for you. This material has a glossy finish and comes in many colors, so you can get creative with your color palette. Poly satin’s sheen steps it up a notch and elevates a space for a more elegant feel.

Velour Drapery

Royalty and old-world class are easily achieved with velour drapes. You might mistake this material for velvet, but velour is a superior choice over velvet as it’s more durable than its delicate counterpart. This fabric offers a soft texture that makes the space feel cozy and inviting. Perfect for making a large room feel more intimate for smaller guest counts! 

Event drapery allows you to be creative in a multitude of ways, whether dressing up a table for food, guest books, and gifts or creating defined spaces within a larger room. Plus, certain materials can draw light in when needed or block light out for a dramatic effect — so a lighting designer can help you create the right design! 

You can also use fabric to draw attention to certain areas of the room by hanging or draping around features like the sweetheart table, cake table, or dance floor. You can even use the material to accent centerpieces. The possibilities are endless! There are so many options for drapery and fabric, so be sure to check out what we have to offer!.

Weekday Weddings on AP {New Press}

If you have been considering a weekday wedding, you are not alone! Weekday weddings are becoming part of the norm as the industry navigates an unprecedented “wedding boom” in the wake of the pandemic — and it turns out couples and their guests are actually loving the midweek nuptials!

Not only do weekday weddings tend to be more cost-effective, but you will also have a better chance at booking top-notch vendors if you intend to tie the knot in 2022 or 2023. So if you have a dream wedding venue or vendor you want to book, picking a weekday can make it easier to secure them!

But be mindful: As bookings increase, time is still of the essence. In 2022, the wedding industry will produce the most weddings on record since 1984. Venues and vendors will be busier than ever, so it’s time to get to planning!

weekday weddings | AP News

Our very own Kevin chimed in on the subject for AP News in an article, So long, Saturdays: More couples embrace weekday weddings. And we can confirm it’s true: Weekday celebrations have definitely been on the rise in Livermore!

Tipping Etiquette for Wedding Vendors

When planning your big day, it’s easy to get lost in the madness and forget about tipping your wedding vendors. But it’s so important to be respectful of their time and efforts, so it’s best to include gratuity in your wedding budget!

Although tipping is not required, some vendors may expect it — and likely deserve it. It is a great way to thank them for their superb service bringing your wedding day to life!

If you need guidance on whom to tip and how much to give, read on. 

tipping

Tipping Etiquette 101

Here’s a breakdown of gratuity to include for each wedding vendor.

Officiant

Many ordained clergy members won’t accept cash tips for officiating wedding ceremonies. However, a donation to their church or religious institution is greatly appreciated. For a non-religious officiant, you can give them around $50.  

Photographer and videographer

A lot of these vendors are business owners themselves, so tipping is often unnecessary. But if you’re incredibly happy with their work, feel free to give a generous tip of up to $100 (or more if you’re that satisfied!). If they have assistants or second-shooters, you can tip them anywhere from $50 to $75.

Caterer and waitstaff

While a service fee is often stipulated in your contract, this amount is typically divided amongst all the waitstaff. It’s a kind gesture to give them $10 to $20 each for their hard work. If bartending services aren’t part of your caterer’s package, tip 10% to 15% of the pre-tax bar bill.  

Hair and Makeup Artists

Just as you would for a regular hair or makeup appointment, tip makeup artists and hairstylists 20% of the total bill.

Musicians and DJs

A tip between $25 and $50 per person is customary. And, if you book a band, remember to tip their sound technician as well!

Driver, Valet, Restroom, and Coat Check Attendants

If gratuity is not yet included in your transportation bill, tip your driver 15-20% of the total cost. For valet attendants, express your gratitude by tipping $1-2 per car, to be divided among them. And for the total amount to be allocated for your restroom and coat check attendants, multiply the number of guests by $0.50 to $2.  

Wedding planner and florist

Since these vendors are typically business owners, they won’t be expecting a tip from you. If you are feeling generous, feel free to tip your wedding planner 10-20% of the total bill, or up to $500. Your florist may be tipped 10-15% of your total bill. If you prefer, you can also give them personal gifts instead.

Delivery Personnel

On your wedding day, you can expect a lot of deliveries—from your rentals to your wedding cake and flowers. Leave cash envelopes containing $5 to $10 to your coordinator or catering manager to hand out to delivery personnel.

 

Keep in mind that these numbers are only meant to serve as a guide. Ultimately, you should tip according to what your budget permits and the level of service you’ve received.

Wedding Planning Apps for Couples

With weddings becoming more and more involved these days, staying organized and on budget can be difficult for many couples. You have to keep track of a million moving parts while also trying to enjoy the process, so it can get overwhelming! The good news is that we live in a world where technology can guide us through the planning process with the endless websites and planning apps that help couples remain on track, on budget and sane. We’ve got a list of some of our favorites that we think couples should keep in their back pocket!

Honeyfund

Honeyfund is a free crowdsourcing honeymoon registry that has become a favorite because there are no transaction fees for anyone. Couples are able to create a personalized site with categorized gift amount options for guests to choose from. They’ve even expanded to be more than just a honeymoon registry, where couples can now ask for any big ticket items, like contributing to a house down payment or a “just starting off” fund.

WedReality

WedReality allows users to virtually try on more than 300 dress combinations to figure out what is the right style for them. Strapless, long sleeves, cap sleeves, one-shoulder, short, and long—they’re all included in this virtual dressing room.

The Black Tux

The Black Tux offers an easy way to rent your tuxedo. You can style your own tux and include the accessories you want, then enter your measurements online. Your tux comes in the mail, you wear it and then return it! Share with your groomsmen, so they can all get matching suits or tuxedos and pay online.

TripIt

This is a great, free tool for anyone who needs to keep flights, rental cars and hotel reservations organized – it allows you to input all of your information and subsequently keeps everything in one place. It can also be set to automatically grab travel confirmations from your email to store in the app.

We hope these apps will significantly reduce your wedding planning stress. Be sure to let your vendors know which apps you’re using, they may be able to help you maximize its use!

Wedding MBA Recap!

What a whirlwind the month of October has been! We have been traveling from coast to coast speaking and meeting new and interesting people.

At the beginning of the month, we headed out to Las Vegas for the annual Wedding MBA conference- one of our favorites! Every moment was jam packed with education- from upcoming trends to customer experience, there was something for everyone. We most enjoyed Sonny Ganguly’s session on Technology (of course!).

The highlight of our trip was absolutely the 2nd Annual WIPA Awards, where we took home the prize for Lighting Designer of Excellence! What an exciting honor it was, and made even more special being surrounded by so many of our peers.

We can’t forget to give a shoutout to WeddingWire for putting on an amazing party Tuesday night, and our friends at the Tri-Valley Wedding Pros for such a fun dinner!

Upcoming Fall Wedding Color Trends

We can’t believe that August is coming to an end and Labor Day is this weekend (ahh! where did the time go?). It’s been quite a whirlwind of a wedding season, and we’ve seen some amazing new trends from couples that we are loving. With that, we wanted to share some of the color trends that we’ve been seeing and what we’ll be seeing this Fall.

Spicy Colors

With cooler weather couples are bringing out colors like burgundy, rosy red, and blush pink. This combination of reds is such a warm and vibrant color palette that’s perfect for an intimate candlelight ceremony full of romance.

Sparkly Colors

Metallics made a big comeback over the spring and summer and they won’t be going anywhere in the fall. Tons of sparkles and neutrals set the scene for highlighting beautiful details like DIY projects and centerpieces.

Cozy Nautical Colors

Navy blue, charcoal grey, and sunset orange are perfect for cooler weather affairs. Blue is always in style and screams ultra chic. Not to mention it pairs perfectly with so many different accent options!

We’re looking forward to seeing what all of our fall couples will bring to the table this autumn season!
