TEAL AND GOLD NORTHWEST VINEYARD WEDDING INSPIRATION: Northwest Vineyard Wedding

With varying shades of teal bridesmaids dresses, a kissing booth, and live tree wedding favors, this DeLille Cellars wedding has so much Northwest to love.

From Rebecca Grant, wedding planner at New Creations Weddings - Taking cue from the gorgeous natural scenery of DeLille Cellars, the couple opted to keep the color palette grounded in shades of blue, greens and whites. Danielle and Rob provided special touches such as the live pine trees which doubled as escort cards.  There were also surprises for the guests all through the evening with a kissing booth (which Rob made himself), Gonzaga flag that came out during dancing (a nod to their alma mater), a cotton candy buffet, and a balloon release! This DeLille Cellars wedding has so much Northwest to love!

From Jaffrey Bagge, caterer at Twelve Baksets Catering - Rob and Danielle decided to have an Italian and Northwest fusion menu which fit the family and setting beautifully! From tray passed mini antipasto skewers and pear gorganzola crostini to cedar wrapped salmon and chicken picatta seated dinner, it was a perfect feast for the occasion. Our vintage mismatched china settings looked so elegant next to the little pine tree escort cards.

Greek, African & American Seattle Wedding from New Creations Weddings

There is just so much to love in this real wedding from New Creations Weddings. This multi-cultural Greek, African, and American wedding celebrated the heritage of this beautiful couple. We are inspired by the vibrant use of colors in every element from the uplighting to the hand-made sugar bougainvillea on the wedding cake. 

From the Planner, Rebecca Grant of New Creations Weddings: "Haroula and Dave's Greek/African and American wedding day was as close to a perfect wedding day as you can get. With the stunning Seattle summer we had last year, in addition to the gorgeous bright and vibrant colors, this wedding was a dream. The rich color palette of purples, pinks, yellows and oranges jumped out beautifully from Within Sodo's dark backdrop. The Edison bulb chandelier was definitely a favorite too, used as the backdrop for the ceremony, then again for the head table. Nods to the bride growing up in Africa were abundant through the use of colors and tropical flowers. Even the cake had hand-made sugar flower bougainvillea harkening to the abundance of the flower in Africa. Haroula's Greek heritage was brought in during the dancing, and although we couldn't break the plates, napkins were thrown about instead.  

What a fun, perfect wedding this day was!"

The 6 People You Don't Want to Be at a Wedding|Wedding Guest Etiquette

~The 6 People You Don't Want to Be at a Wedding|Wedding Guest Etiquette is a guest blog post from New Creations Weddings ~

The rules of guest wedding etiquette have undoubtedly evolved over the generations. Some rules have been tweaked and others have been completely thrown out of the window. However, there are still several that are not up for debate. Frustratingly, we continue to see many of these unmannerly moves over and over again and we think it’s time for a lesson in proper decorum. If you will be attending a wedding this Summer, listen up!

To be a model wedding guest, DON’T be these 6 people:

1. Don't be the Non-RSVPer

If you don’t RSVP, there is a chance there won't be a seat or a meal for you. Just showing up can make things awkward for everyone. The couple has most likely made it very easy for you to respond via response card including addressed envelope and postage. Alternatively, they may have created a customized email address for collecting RSVPs. It is important to respond the way the Bride & Groom have requested. It's possible they have someone else collecting RSVPs for them and that person shouldn’t have to hunt down your RSVP across all mediums. 

REMINDER: mention any dietary restrictions at the time of RSVP. Every catering company that we have worked with is happy to accommodate you as long as they have the advanced notice. They will not be very happy if you bring up your gluten allergy as dinner is being served.

2. Don’t be the guest that shows up with a +1 or children that were not specifically invited

If the Bride & Groom have allotted you a +1, the invitation will be addressed to you and your guest’s name or to you “and guest”. Don’t just assume that you are allowed to bring a +1 and don’t ask the couple if it is okay to bring someone after you have received an invitation. Deciding on the guest list can be one of the most difficult tasks during the wedding planning process. The couple may have had to cut out family members or friends and there's a chance there were tears over it so know that their decision was deliberate. 

When it comes to kids at weddings, preferences are across the board. As a general rule, the invitation will be addressed to the entire family if it is okay to bring your children. If your whole family is not invited or the invitation requests no kids, respect that. Your children are not the exception despite how cute and well behaved they may be. Call up Grandma or a babysitter and treat the wedding as a date night!

3. Don’t be Mr. or Ms. Too Casual

You know the old saying, “It is better to be overdressed, than under-dressed.”? Well, it’s still true. Be sure to pay attention to to the invitation. Attire is typically stated there. Please don’t wear whatever you feel like wearing. This is the Bride & Groom’s day, not yours. Use this an excuse to get dressed up! Below are some easy-to-follow guidelines.

Black Tie: Gentlemen, you will be going in a black tuxedo and ladies, a long-mid length gown for you

Formal: A suit for the gentlemen. We recommend a long-mid length gown, your classiest cocktail dress or dressy separates for the ladies

Semi-formal: Gentlemen, this is where you can play around with it a little bit. Wear a suit but feel free to rock it without a tie or without the jacket. Ladies, think Sunday best or cocktail attire. Cocktail attire does not mean club wear! Be mindful of the fit, length of skirt, the neckline, etc. (See photo above.)

Casual: For the love of all that is Holy, put the jeans back in your closet. We don’t care who’s wedding you are going to, whether it is at a beach or in a backyard--gentlemen, put on some khakis or linen pants. They are equally as, if not more, comfortable than jeans. Pair with a polo or casual button down. Ladies, just keep it classy!

4. Don’t be the Late-comer

There is a common misconception that weddings always start late. (Obviously these people have never been to one of our weddings.) Always try to arrive 10 minutes earlier than the invite time. Again, this is the couple’s day, not yours. If the ceremony does happen to start a few minutes late (because things do happen) and you have to wait on them, fine but they should never have to wait on you! If you do show up after the ceremony has begun, wait until the processional is over and quietly sneak up a side aisle. 

Something to note--unless the invitation specifically states that you were only invited to the reception, you were invited to both so you should attend both! This is a special day for the couple and they invited you because they want to share it with you. Despite what you may think, they WILL notice your absence.

5. Don’t Play the Amateur Photographer

Some couples do encourage photos with special hashtags, etc. but if you are not sure whether you should have your phone out or not, err on the side of caution--turn it off and live in the moment. If you do decide to snap a few shots, do so discretely. Please, NO IPADS and do not lean into the aisle or stand up to take a picture. We know you have the best intentions but the Bride & Groom probably spent a small fortune to hire a professional photographer. Don’t give the photographer the tedious task of photo-shopping out you or your giant tablet.

6. Don’t be the 1st one to the dessert dar

There has been a surge in the popularity of dessert bars over the past few years so I know this one can be a little confusing but the same old rule applies. The dessert bar does not open until the Bride & Groom have cut the cake. The couple doesn’t want to take photos in front of a half picked through table. Quite often, this is the first time they will be seeing the dessert bar and/or cake that day. Some couples will opt to do a separate cake and dessert table and will allow guest to eat dessert first but wait for an announcement or an okay from the catering staff before you dig in. If you are not sure, wait!

Bottom line--don’t be a jerk (consciously or unconsciously), follow these guidelines and most importantly have fun celebrating.

Cheers and happy planning!

East Meets West Willows Lodge 2016 Weddings in Woodinville Recap 

~The following is a guest post from Rebecca Grant, New Creations Weddings, Weddings in Woodinville 2016 Guest Planner for Willows Lodge

Willows Lodge was turned into an Asian-inspired “East Meets West” theme for this year Weddings in Woodinville.  As the guest planner for Willows, and wanting to feature my specialty and knowledge in Asian weddings, I wanted to transform the space into a warm, inviting space with nods to Japanese traditions.

My favorite aspect of the design had to have been the outdoor pergola ceremony area.  Guests were welcomed to the outdoor ceremony space featuring a chandelier made of 1,001 paper cranes that are always part of Japanese weddings.  These cranes were actually used in one of my past brides weddings, and made with love by her family members.  She then gifted them to me knowing I would use them more than her.  What a gift and treat to be able to display these gorgeous handcrafted cranes for this show.

In addition to the show stopping crane centerpiece, Eleanor of Bash and Bloom provided draping of greenery that came out from the chandelier to the corners of the pergola, creating a very northwest and softer feel.  Soft fabric draping from Aria Style was put as a backdrop to the greenery so it stood out against the dark wood.  At night the pergola was stunning with warm fuchsia up lighting installed by Crimson Haze Event Lighting.

Inside, guests were welcomed to five display tables, with one being the main focal point.  The beautiful, patterned focal point table was draped in linens and chargers from BBJ Linens, while the glassware and utensils were features from Pedersen’s Rentals.  The side display tables were kept simpler but with different details that tied into the main display table with paper elements such as menus and place cards from Paper Passionista and calligraphy by Letters by Ellen.  I even featured chopsticks and crane chopstick holders that matched the décor perfectly!

On either end of the room were additional décor elements with one side featuring a gorgeous greenery wall backdrop for the stunning display cake created by Kara from The Sweet Side.  Directly next to the cake display was an exquisite gown from Le Salon Bridal that tied in with my Asian design.  It was not only by a Japanese designer, but it also featured back detail that looked like origami.

On the opposite wall, guests could get off their feet for a bit and enjoy the delicious food offerings from Willows Lodge that tied in perfectly with the Asian-inspired theme.  The Ahi tuna and the Mongolian beef bites were to die for!  Guests could also wonder around the foyer area featuring entertainment from Nash Fung Magician and pop into the photo booth provided by 321 Foto, all while Brandon Ghorley DJ was playing upbeat tunes.
