The colors of the room clash with my wedding hues. Wedding reception table. The Expert: Alison Hotchkiss of Alison Events in San Francisco. The Style Hack: "Don`t fight the design flaw—embrace it," Hotchkiss says. "If the carpet is a green zigzag, pull that color into the napkins or the seat cushions." Not for you? Try draping the walls with fabric or covering the floor with a sisal rug. If you`ve chosen a palette with a metallic or a neutral, make that hue more prominent in the décor and save the bolder color for details like your invitations or signature sip. The space isn’t big enough for two separate setups. Loft-style wedding ceremony. The Expert: Dora Manuel of Viva Bella Events in Cincinnati. The Style Hack: Fret not! Just "flip" the space. You can use the flowers on the ceremony aisle for reception centerpieces, and your rental chairs can serve double duty too. But factor in extras. "We always keep backup draping on hand," Manuel says. Draping can hide things that aren`t easy to move, like a 12-piece band. You can also use it to frame the ceremony or hide preset tables.
Important To-Dos for the Week of Your Wedding (That Are Easy to Forget!) Even though your floral contract is signed and sealed, you still need to make sure those flowers get delivered. You`re a week away from saying "I do"—and trust us, we know you`re so ready. But with seven days to go, there are a few seemingly small but important tasks that need to be checked off your list so they don`t fall through the cracks. You don`t want to be at the altar ready for your groom to break the glass and then realize that there`s no glass, right? Take the Time to Pack Properly. This is going to be the one occasion where you probably should care deeply about what`s in your suitcase. Whether you`re getting married five minutes down the street or you`re leaving for your honeymoon a day after the reception, taking the time to pack thoughtfully for each event that week is crucial. (We know all too well what happens when you wake up at 5 a.m. to pack with bleary eyes! Mismatched bathing suits and missing deodorant, anyone?) Do you have your beauty emergency kit? Your bikinis and lingerie that was gifted to you at your shower? Your day-of present and note to your partner? Knowing you have everything you need will definitely minimize any stress. Schedule Any Beauty Appointments. Your fingers will likely be texting all week, which makes it even more crucial to keep your nails fresh. Make any minor beauty appointments you want done that week. Think: a mani-pedi, waxing, massage, blowout and facial. This goes for your groom too—make sure his hair is trimmed and face is shaved (if that`s the look he`s after). Any experimental beauty treatments (like facial peels, lasering, hair coloring and drastic cuts) should be done a few months in advance, just in case they don`t turn out as expected.
The walls are the worst—ugly wallpaper and medieval sconces! Gobo lighting at a wedding reception. The Expert: Brian Worley of yourBASH! in Santa Monica, California. The Style Hack: While you can`t exactly redecorate, you can shift the focus. "I like to transform a space with what I call `moving wallpaper`—we use projectors and add moving images to the walls," Worley says. This trick also doubles as a lighting feature, giving the space a unique look. If a dozen projectors aren`t in your budget, stick to lighting that masks the design. Uplighting and gobos can transform a space instantly—even old wallpaper can disappear amid a soft, colorful glow. The drapes are patterned, and the venue won’t take them down. Draped ceiling wedding reception. The Expert: Annie Lee of Daughter of Design in New York City. The Style Hack: "Buy yards of simple fabric and pin them over the offending drapes," Lee says. It`s a quick fix—no sewing required—and it can really transform the venue. Unlimited budget? Drape the whole space! Coordinate your fabric choices with your table linens, working in a texture or small pattern to keep things fresh and fun.
