Lights, Camera, Action! Planning A Wedding is a Lot Like Making a Movie

Thursday, January 10th, 2013

READY!

A wedding is like a movie in a lot of ways. First and foremost are the stars of the show, our leading actors, the bride and groom. As in a movie, the wedding is the story about them and their lives.

Next are the supporting actors, the bridesmaids and groomsmen. Their role, just like in the movies, is to support the bride and groom; in essence, to make them look good. Of course, every film has a director (the wedding planner), a production team, (the mother, the mother-in-law, the clergy, the photographer, the caterer, the florist) and finally, a set (the church, the hall, an outdoor pavilion, the beach). Today, I want to talk to you about the set.

SET!

Every set has to have perfect lighting. If you have ever watched a movie being shot, you would know that there are hundreds of lights, in various sizes and heights, which are used to provide the perfect lighting needed for filming. In the same manner, your wedding/reception needs the picture-perfect lighting to enhance your special day. A great way to achieve that look is with the use of flameless candles, such as the ones we sell here at Wholesale Event Solutions. Flameless candles come in different shapes and sizes to help you create the desired ambiance for your wedding. Plus, you won’t have to worry about the set burning down!

Every set also has to have the perfect backdrop. At Wholesale Event Solutions, we offer many different styles of wedding colonnades to make your day picture perfect! For example, if you are going for the romantic look, use the classic Graeco-Roman Style Colonnade Arch; add some tulle wrapped in soft white lights and some beautiful potted plants and you are ready to go. Or, if you are a modern bride, use the Contemporary Oval Style Colonnade for a very sleek, elegant look. All of our colonnades are sturdy and stable, yet lightweight; which makes them very easy to assemble.

And, finally, every set needs the precise trimmings to make it look real. Wholesale Event Solutions offers a wide variety of decorations. We have vases of every size and shape for perfect floral arrangements, beautiful and unique table candelabras, and our ever popular Ostrich Feather Centerpieces, which come in every color under the sun. Choose whatever fits your style, or be bold and go with something distinctive and different!

ACTION!

Remember, you are the “producer” of your wedding! So, take charge! Browse our website and see what we have to offer. Let Wholesale Event Solutions be your co-producer in the finest and most important production of your life–your wedding. Congratulations and happy filming!

The 5 Best Pinterest Pages For Wedding Inspiration

Thursday, September 13th, 2012

Do you have a Pinterest addiction? Do you spend hours pinning recipes, DIY crafts, shoes, and hair styles like it was your job?

Don’t feel bad. Many of us do. Sometimes I feel like Desmond from the TV show Lost who had to punch in the numbers every few hours so the island wouldn’t blow up. That is what my Pinterest obsession is like. Pin it or boom! So, since Pinterest is all about sharing, I wanted to share with you my five favorite Pinterest pages. This is our first post in this new “Best of the Event Planning Web” series.

1. The Perfect Palette

If you are in the beginning phases of planning your wedding, then this should be the first place on the Internet that you look. For many brides, one of the most difficult tasks is choosing your wedding theme and colors. The Perfect Palette has over 120 Pinterest boards waiting to give you inspiration.

Our Favorite Board:

Do you have a favorite color picked out but are having trouble finding the right colors to go with it? Then the first board you should take a look at is the “Color Palette Library”. Here you will find over 250 color combinations. There is a good chance that you will find just the right combination to match your favorite color here. If you can’t, go to their website and they can put a color palette together for you!

2. Style Me Pretty

Their page is very well organized with boards for brides, grooms, wedding shoes, wedding cakes, photography, DIY projects, and on and on and on.

3. The Knot

The Knot on PinterestWhile not as extensive as The Perfect Palette or Style Me Pretty this page is a must see. Most of their boards are organized by color. There are also seasonal boards for Fall, Summer, Winter, and Spring. Plus they have quite an extensive collection of bridal hairstyles on their “Hot Wedding Hairstyles” board.

Our Favorite Board:

Like I said, “Hot Wedding Hairstyles”. This is one of the best boards on Pinterest. Whether you like your hair straight, in a ponytail, or up in a bun, you are sure to find inspiration here.

The Budget Savvy Bride on PinterestThis board belongs to the founder of one of my favorite websites, thebudgetsavvybride.com.

Jessica’s Pinterest board is one of the most unique wedding pages on Pinterest. The Budget Savvy Bride specializes in weddings on a budget. Here you will find DIY projects and other inspiration that will show you how to cut your wedding budget without your wedding even reflecting those cuts.
