We had such a great time at the showcase two weeks ago meeting all the upcoming brides in Southern Utah. We hope the showcase sparked some excitement in your wedding planning and you found some great people to work with. Every wedding vendor at the showcase is truly amazing, so I hope you saw lots of amazing inspiration and your wedding dream team.
Each year as the showcase approaches, I get swamped with getting everything organized. From putting together packets for vendors, organizing timelines, taking care of pre-registrations, and just getting all the marketing set so each brides knows the event is taking place. With all of this, it doesn’t leave a lot of time to think about how my booth will look. Thankfully I am lucky to have such an amazing support group around me to bounce ideas off of who helped me narrow it town in time to get everything ordered in.
(Hands down, the best and most beautiful staff ever! Don’t you agree?
When coming up with a theme and overall look, I couldn’t decide to go either blush and gold like I am seeing a lot of Southern Utah weddings palettes using, or doing something different. I am glad that support group talked me into doing something different and designing for what I would want myself. To just have fun with it. My amazing baby sister mentioned I need to do tribal print, and it just clicked from there. I am lucky to have people around me who can help get the creative juices flowing.
The rugs were the first pieces I found on Urban Outfitters. I love the apartment section of their website and fell in love with the triangle tribal inspired pattern. The pillows and runners came next with fabric I found online. One of my favorite things to do in weddings is sew custom pillows, linen and curtains to create a one of a kind looks. So I knew I wanted to show that unique aspect off at the showcase.
Some of the other big pieces brought in to make the look whole was the large tuft blue leather sofa, wooden benches, wooden chairs, gold and glass end tables, and little industrial items. (Iron fan, sheet metal pots and light strands) A cool twist on the table was using houseplants on the table as anchor pieces around the floral centerpiece. They gave it color, life, and bring a cool twist to the tablescape. It would be fun to see this trend become more popular in weddings.
My favorite piece on the table were the flowers though. The instant pop of color with the red, orange and yellow set to a loose style arrangement with lots of greens was a total home run by Bloomers here in St. George. I loved bringing in these random colors just in the flowers to draw in the eye and make all the other colors and bold patterns in the set up complimentary to these pops of color.
I hope you all enjoyed our booth this year. We sure loved creating it, and even more exciting, it’s in the process of now becoming my guest bedroom set up. So if you are ever in town, you might be able to stay in my tribal print inspired guest room.
-happy planning, jewls
