Most of the time, all wedding receptions are set up the same, you have your plain colored linens in your colors and matching napkins, though it is elegant and classic, some brides are now looking for a way to make it more unique.  To set your wedding apart from all the others, try a patterned linen for your reception set up! It adds interest and is a great way to bring in all your colors.  It is also a great way to add what looks like a lot of decoration when in reality is it only the linens and it will save you money! Be BOLD!

Forget falling flat on your wedding day, add some color to those heels! Bridesmaids shouldn't be the only ones who get to wear fun shoes, brides should too.  Most brides think that since their dress is long, their shoes don't matter, but they do! They could be your "something blue!" You can match with your bridesmaids or have a color all your own! At SiMPLY SOPHiSTiCATED we are always urging you to think outside the box so your day can be as unique as you!

Invitations can get expensive! Here is a solution that is BEAUTiFUL, EASY, and AFFORDABLE! We got this paper from Papyrus, a stationary store.  It came in a pack with 100 pieces of paper and 100 envelopes, for $25.00.  We printed them ourselves from Microsoft Word and folded them creatively to finish them! This can be done for any type of invitation; from wedding invites or rehearsal dinner invites (above) to baby shower or any type of get-together! We encourage you to try new things and be creative! Enjoy!

This past Sunday we were at the Bridal Expo! We had a great display highlighting this years color, honeysuckle pink, along with black and damask accents! If you visited our booth you walked away with a "Bride-to-Be" sash! We wanted all the brides to stand out and feel as special as they are! We also held a raffle for 10% off a package of your choice and we will be posting the winner next Tuesday! Some of the ideas we presented were, lighted centerpieces containing real flowers submerged in water creating what looked like a lamp, a candy bar that can serve as a party favor for your guests, and some other floral arrangements that are guaranteed to be a conversation piece at your event! We had such a wonderful time at the Expo and we met so many wonderful brides and we wish you all happy planning! And remember, we are here to help so give us a call!

Unique Centerpieces

Ready to decide what to do for the centerpieces? Don't let yourself be limited.  Flowers, though classic and beautiful, are not the only option. Be creative and do something that is as unique as you are! This centerpiece also serves as the guests favors for attending the wedding. Included is a hand written note from the bride and groom thanking their guests and instructing them to take an apple on their way out! This is a great way to save money by killing two birds with one stone. The note adds a personal element that guests are sure to appreciate!
