So we kinda got away from doing blogs for a while. But fear not! We’re back in gear to bring you all the latest wedding and related goodies right here at Stony Point. So how about we start simple and ease back into this?
Your wedding is a special day and should fit your desires and style. Decorations are a key ingredient to this, and with the resources available today it is fairly easy to create an elegant, relaxed atmosphere without breaking the bank.
So who to turn to for those great, simple and cost effective ideas? Why not start with the DIY queen herself? Here’s a great article from Martha Stewart Weddings on creating a great centerpiece. There’s a reason it’s called the CENTERpiece, so it should be an elegant yet non-intrusive element…
Here’s a similar DIY centerpiece from a wedding at Stony Point Hall. It fills the table center with a splash of color and life, without intruding between your guests. What a great way to bring your own personality to your special day.
Color is important to decorating and can be used in so many inventive ways. Some of us may prefer light and airy, others seasonal colors, or bold and brassy. Even identical colors can be used in highly contrasting ways. Each of us has our own vision of how it all works.
Here is a great article on one very specific, bold color – navy. There are actually many subtle shades of navy, each invokes a sense of luxury and comfort. This color family pairs fantastic with simple whites to provide a simple contrast that can be a powerful statement.
We have seen some amazing navy weddings at Stony Point Hall. The things that can be done with such a contrast are varied and beautiful. Some weddings choose a bold, room-wide statement with the predominant color filling the room. The white contrasts stand out as undeniable accents. The room grabs your attention and brings you into its embrace.
While others choose a more stately, white backdrop with a splash of navy for accent. This creates a cheerful, open atmosphere with a delightful pattern of bold color. The white leaves room for other bold splashes of color, such as vivid greenery or dark red roses.
Finally, what is elegance without the charm of lace? Lace has been a symbol of weddings and families for time immemorial. Lace makes an elegant and charming addition to any decoration, and is more versatile than you may think! Check out this great article on the creative ways to use lace in your wedding decorations.
And that’s just a hint of what you can do! Any lace can be used as an accent that says time, tradition, elegance and charm. Check out what this bride did with a family heirloom dress. What a fantastic and memorable way to tie family history in with family photos.
Well that’s it for now. I hope you enjoyed these little tidbits for your decoration planning. If you got one interesting idea, or something sparked an idea, then hooray! Congratulations, and hope to see you at Stony Point Hall!
