The Secrets to Staying Focused Before Your Wedding
How many times have you been scrolling through Pinterest on the hunt for the perfect and most unique wedding décor ideas that will not only wow your guests but also capture your dream wedding visions?? If you are anything like me, a Pinterest junkie, than I am sure you have searched all the styles, themes, colours, indoor and outdoor options and found that some of these idea can become a little overwhelming to choose from and kind of make your eye balls go crossed…
Let me help you today to uncross those eyes and bring a little light into your wedding décor search with Secret Number 5 to a stress free wedding!
Secret # 5
Quite possibly some of these you have already heard or read about and I cannot sit here and tell you something you won’t know already but these are a few of the unique ideas that I have seen and searched that could just add that pop and sparkle to you big day!
So…let’s think outside the box for a moment…
Of all the venues out there, especially hotels, it’s not common to find a venue that offers you a nice, stylish chair for your guests. So what is the alternative to these brown and gold rimmed chairs?? The traditional chair covers and coloured sashes! Yes my friend! This is what most couples go to in order to style up these not so attractive chairs.
Are you looking for something a little different?
I know that I am. Nothing against the look of covers and sashes (personally I would suggest the spandex ones for a clean and sleek look) but if you’re like me, than you have seen enough of the blue and red on white and want something fresh, sleek and trendy!
May I suggest looking at renting a stylish wood or plastic chair to replace the other ones? Consider this. Renting 1 chair cover (in Calgary) averages $3-5 each depending on style and colour. Then you add in the colourful sash for another $1-2.50 each. That’s a total of (on the high side) $7.50! For ONE chair. Not to mention the painstaking time it takes to cover each chair just perfectly and tie that pretty little bow ever so right onto the chairs x150 chairs (or more!)…from one who has done this many times…it’s not the highlight of my styling that’s for sure!
Ok, so let’s looks at the alternative to renting a stylish chair. Take this simple black chivari chair below, for example. One chair with you choice of cushion costs around $6.25 to $8.75. (And Great Events in Calgary has a large selection to choose from for colour and design).
That is a total of $1.25 extra per chair! So if you have 100 guests at your wedding that’s an extra $125.00 to completely transform the look of your décor!!
Not bad…even for those of us on a tight budget! I am sure there is something else that could be cut back on in order for you to have this style and design in your wedding. So let me challenge you to think outside the box but to stay inside your budget to achieve your unique wedding style.
