Couture “I Dos”: Hosting A Haute and Happening Event Without Breaking The Bank
Jan 12, 2017 01:52 PM Back
YOUR  once in a lifetime love commands a one of a kind celebration. Step into the future by getting your inspiration from history and “the past”.

Treat Your Guests To An Authentic Black and White Ball. In true Truman Capote style…contemporary couples are hosting classically grand fetes in fabulous ballrooms replete with all the trimmings of the Hollywood A-lister.
Among the “Must Haves”:
  1. Fantastic Fashions: Think glamorous custom crafted ball gowns with all the traditional glitz and glamour of old school Hollywood. Brides may want to consider a gown with intricate folds that’s trendy, traditional and elegant. And, don’t forget the lavish (feathered) masks and long (past the elbow) gloves intrinsic and essential to such an extravagant event.
  2. Lavish Locations: Go for the Gold by booking a hotel or catering hall with an ornate and elaborate GRAND ballroom with lots of golden accents and enhancements.
  3.  Bold and Beautiful Accents: Think adding bold color to a otherwise sophisticated strictly black and white event. Consider red lips, red tablecloths, etc. for pops of color that are rich and robust.
  4. Champagne wishes and caviar dreams:  Consider butler style hors d’oeuvres and remember to serve up crackers with Russian caviar and keep the champagne flowing at your epic event.
  5. Cakextravaganza: Multi –tiered cakes with ornate embellishments including “diamonds and pearls” are truly delicious designs for your Gatsbyesque fete.
  6. Golden Opportunity: Add a pop of posh to your tables with over the top candelabra centerpieces with plenty of bling and gold plates and flatware…think Phantom of the Opera for inspiration.
  7. Designer Invites: Let Broadway guide you. Consider playbill style invites that SCREAM sophistication and city chic.
  8. Bedazzling Accessories: From diamond teardrop earrings and charming chokers to shoes with vintage femininity and style, get your accessory inspiration from on-screen sirens of the past.
