For our wedding, I really wanted everything to be rustic and floral. Having worked as a bridal stylist, I had seen so many different wedding color combinations, wedding themes and everything in between. This helped me know exactly what I did and didn’t want for our wedding
This post is all about our decor vendors, Herts Vintage Hire and Kenza Creations.
Herts Vintage Hire
We originally had the idea of having a wooden type cart for desserts. As we were looking around for different rustic carts, we stumbled on Herts Vintage Hire’s website. They had not only the carts we were looking for but also, selfie station set ups and all the signage we were going to make ourselves. Ladders that could be decorated according to your own style and much more. We knew that we had to have Carla and her team to make all the elements of our wedding come together.
When we met with Carla, we gave her the entire run down of the day, the layout of the venue and our vision. We talked about what styles we liked, colors, and the props we wanted. What’s really cool is that Carla creates a Pintrest board for all her clients. So that together you can add what you like and she can get an even better idea of your style. From Carla, we ended up choosing:
- Vintage Photo frame with a matching vintage suitcase for our selfie station
- Rustic ladder with all sorts of decor
- Signage that labeled the men and women’s side
- A personalized welcome sign that were able to take home with us
- Jars, candles and books to decorate the two cupcake tables
These are the items we choose. With Carla’s amazing eye for detail she included even more. I had only asked her to decorate the ladder, selfie station and the two cupcake tables. But she went above and beyond!
When I arrived at the venue I could not have been more thrilled with how everything was put together. The ladder had even more props that we had originally chosen. The centerpieces we made all had wooden confetti pieces (We had 35 tables in all so that was no easy task).
Every empty space was filled with props and signs that matched our theme perfectly. I would highly recommend Herts Vintage Hire for any event you may have.
I’d never been to an Asian wedding so I had no idea what the staging thing was all about. Traditionally people have a stage built for their wedding. They’re usually super elegant and have seating, this is where you take family photos and bride and groom photos.
We looked around at a couple different vendors for staging and decided on Kenza Creations. They had more stages in the style that we were going for. Neither my hubby or I really wanted a super glitzy wedding so when we saw a stage with a flower wall and massive trees, we were sold. Since we had separate sides for the men and women, we went with two different stages.
I was so impressed with this team. They were super attentive and understanding. We had a tricky time because the men’s side was much smaller than the women’s. But they handled it like the pro’s they are. We played around with switching stages, switching sofas and then finally shortening the men’s stage so that there would be enough space. They did everything we asked. They helped us play around with spacing until we were absolutely happy with everything. On the day of the wedding, they showed up right on time and got to work. The stages were beautiful and I’m so glad we’ll have these pictures with them.
