I got off to a rough start the other day because I woke up at the time I should have been arriving to work! I stayed up late the night before cleaning my room (which means organizing wedding stuff) and watching Girl Meets Gown. I watched three episodes (whew!) and was so inspired that I wrote a post about my dream wedding dress that I’ll share with you later on!
In the meantime, here are a few great images that will hopefully make today a bit more cheery for you all! I really want to have lounge furniture scattered throughout our venue. Through Wedding Chicks right here I found the company found, which specializes in supplying event planners and brides with vintage rentals. There are a ton of great workable pieces on their website!
I also discovered another rental service called Party Rental Ltd, which serves the Washington, D.C. area and has lots and lots of great items to fill your venue with style. They have a great inspiration gallery, called “Looks We Love,” that will excite the bride in you! Believe me, I’d totally snag this Pear Green and White Stripe look for my wedding.
I’m going to talk to a planner about bringing in furniture we own to save money, but the problem with that is the setup and breakdown, of course. There’s obviously a lot to figure out before my vision of great furniture all over our venue comes to life, but we’ll get there!
Luckily for us, a few folks have had their weddings at Oxon Hill before us! Here’s an image I found on Event Accomplished of a wedding at our venue that had lounge furniture. This is a picture of the actual foyer of our venue, and I must admit, the furniture looks fabulous! It makes the room more inviting and way more upscale and modern. They got this awesome lounge furniture from Da Vinci’s Florist.
We really like the all-white furniture, but there’s no telling what we’ll go with. We need to visit one of these rental warehouses and see for ourselves the options. Here are a few images I’ve collected from around the web that have inspired this idea…
What do you think about this look? Do you think we could pull it off on the cheap?
