Outdoor Weddings In The Time Of COVID

While weddings and social gatherings look different in a pandemic, they can be just as magical and meaningful for your friends and family, despite some of the restrictions. As always, before planning a wedding reception or gathering, always check with your city’s regulations to be mindful of the community at large and to adhere to any rules or recommendations. 

When it comes to planning your wedding in the time of COVID, outdoor weddings are one of your best solutions to keep guests safe and healthy. Below are a few considerations to not only create your dream wedding, but share creative ways of going about it. 

Destination Anywhere!

So, maybe a destination wedding in France or Italy can’t happen, but the amazing thing about outdoor weddings is they can be just about anywhere. Maybe your friend has beautiful land or your parents have a sprawling backyard —any open space can be transformed into a wedding venue with the help of Signature Event Rentals!

Throwing a wedding outdoors is the best option amidst the pandemic — it creates an environment where people can safely social distance while enjoying a gathering. The airflow is good, and it allows the space for people to spread out, better controlling the spread of the virus. 

COVID-Safe Catering

In weddings past, a buffet was the law of the land in catering, but with COVID, they’re no longer an option. Instead of sharing serving utensils and congregating in large groups waiting in the dinner line, plated dishes are going to be the safest option.

Cupcakes instead of cake is also going to be the safest option, because they can be spread out and there is less of a transmission risk with individual desserts that can either be handed out by the catering staff or people can get by themselves throughout the night. 

COVID-Safe Seating

To help keep everyone socially distanced, place each table six feet or more away from the others. Additionally, creating a seating chart of people from the same household will be ideal. 


Require your guests to wear masks at all times with the exception of eating and drinking — this sets the precedent that you are serious about keeping everyone safe while allowing the gathering to still happen. 

Important Details For Keeping Your Wedding Safe

When we talk about weddings and wedding planning, it’s the details that make a huge difference in how guests experience your special day. So, in sticking with tradition, incorporate small details that will keep everyone happy and healthy.

Have a mask station – Before your friends and family enter your gathering, front and center, have a mask station to ensure everyone is wearing a mask. 

Make hand sanitizer available everywhere – From the guest tables and the bar to the photo booth and DJ area, make sure hand sanitizer is the most visible thing around! And, encourage people to use it not only before they eat, but as the night goes on and there are various interactions — going in and out of the bathroom, going in and out of the event area, mingling with people outside of your household, etc. 

Comfort level identifications – Order some bracelets in red, yellow, and green and have guests wear them as an indication of their comfort level. Red means steering clear of those wearing it, while yellow and green may indicate people are more comfortable shaking hands or hugging. This way, it’s not something someone has to explain or feel bad about, and everyone can enjoy the gathering feeling safe. 

Tag the glasses – It’s easy to lose track of your drink — you may be mingling and leave it at another table or you set it down to use the restroom. Whatever the case may be, tag all of your guest’s glasses beforehand just so everyone knows whose is who. And, if the glass gets misplaced or lost, have your guests get a new glass, and, of course, discourage anyone from drinking out of a glass that may be in question.

3 Ideas To Keep Your Wedding Dance Floor Packed

An empty dance floor is never a good sign. Follow our lead to get wedding guests to the dance floor and stay there all night long!

As your wedding planning has ended and your wedding day approaches, you have the amalgamation of major and minor wedding details settled. The floral arrangements are ready. The cake and caterer were established. 

The one considerable variable that you can’t account for is what will really happen on the day of your wedding. It could rain or an unforeseen traffic jam could delay the ceremony. But, one last detail you may want to flirt with, is how you’ll engage your guests on the dance floor, because nothing is made more of nightmares than an empty dance floor! 

Signature Event Rentals in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia areas provide the leading wedding dance floors that make busting a move possible. Explore more on how to actually get your guests dancing in today’s post!

The Dance Floor

An empty dance floor is certainly recognizable and the elephant in the room of a wedding reception — it’s the void and awkward space that is making all the guests more and more uncomfortable. You can’t force people to dance, but then, why isn’t anyone out there?! 

Here’s how to ensure that doesn’t happen. 

Set The Seating Chart Accordingly

Do you have friends and family that you know love to dance and will get up and dance when the song is right? Adapt your seating arrangement around these people — give them easy access to the dance floor so they can cut a rug early and encourage others to do so with them. 

Are there any tables that evoke the dancing vibe? Signature Event Rentals recommends our Round Farm Table or Round Wood Stand-Up Cocktail Table. Round wedding reception tables make it easy to move in and around the space, as opposed to long rectangular tables that you have to often walk long lengths around. When round tables are placed around the dance floor, they make for an effortless transition to get up and dance!

Play Songs That Make People Dance

As much as you may love country music, not everyone shares your love for the genre and likely won’t get it up to dance. Know your guests and what music is their jam. If you have older folks who grew up in the 60s, 70s, and 80s, don’t forget this genre and play some of the hits from this time period. You also can’t go wrong with wedding classics such as:

  • We Are Family, by Sister Sledge
  • Dancing Queen, by ABBA
  • Celebration, by Kool And The Gang
  • Signed, Sealed, Delivered, by Stevie Wonder

Create An Interactive Experience

The best way to get people out of their chairs and dancing is by letting them request songs to be played by the DJ. Have guests fill out a song request slip and drop it in a jar by the DJ station. Not only does everyone get a song they like, but it helps the DJ gauge what the crowd likes. 

Group dances can also be a fun way to get more guests on the dance floor. While the Chicken Dance, the Hokey Pokey, and the Limbo are all classics, the Cha Cha Slide and the Macarena have become popular line dance songs to get everyone moving. 

You Can’t Dance Without A Dance Floor!

Dancing the night away is one of the best parts of a wedding reception, so having the perfect dance floor to welcome everyone’s moves can make or break the night. It’s important to choose an ideal dance floor that will accommodate your guests and fit within your wedding theme.

Signature Event Rentals has a wide variety of dance floor rentals for an unforgettable wedding reception. 

Black And White Checkered Dance Floor  – This checkered dance floor comes with an iconic pattern and would be perfect for vintage-themed weddings, but blends perfectly with any color palette. It would also be an exciting breakdancing area if that’s what your friends and family love! 

White Dance Floor – A white dance floor not only melds with a large variety of color schemes and wedding themes, but it can be transformed when the lights dim. Illuminate your wedding dance floor with lighting. Keep it simple with dots of white light or shine beautiful, entrancing colors on it all night long.  

Wood Dance Floor – For a traditional wedding dance floor, wood is your go-to material. It’s perfect for any wedding aesthetic and can carry a modern or rustic look. 

All of Signature Event Rentals’ dance floors can be rented by the day and all the way up to a week. They all come in a variety of sizes to accommodate the size of your wedding reception guest list.

Doing Wedding Linens Right

Level up the look of your wedding with the perfect linens!

Weddings are all about the finishing touches — the perfect DJ with your ultimate playlist, a mouthwatering menu, and blooming florals that dance as much as your family does — and even the linens play a role in the fine details of wedding planning. 

You have the wedding tent, now all you need is to decorate what goes under it! Signature Event Rentals is serving up wedding bliss in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia areas for all the essential wedding reception rentals you need. Explore the importance of linens in today’s post!

The Secret Is In The Linens!

You’ve rented your favorite crossback chair and chosen a nice mix of round and square reception tables, so now is the time to tie everything together with the right assortment of linens. What other wedding reception element can bring cohesiveness and immerse your guests in the overall theme of your wedding? It’s always the linens that help bring your dream day up a notch. 

The tables — and what go on the tables — are where most of your guests will spend the majority of their time, so choosing the best linens is crucial to the overall details of your wedding reception, and this is the time to make a statement. 

What Exactly Are The Linens?

Linens include napkins, tablecloths, and runners — they’re the essentials that cover the tables and chairs to help customize your wedding reception. Linens are typically rented and are available for a wide variety of table shapes and sizes. 

What You Need To Know About Renting Linens

Like renting anything else from a wedding rental company, you’ll need to have an exact count of the linens you’ll need, so first things first, you’ll need to know how many tables and chairs you’ll have, including any cocktail tables and even the wedding cake and gift tables.  

Planning Your Linens

Before settling on a color for each table, consider your surroundings. What will your flowers and centerpieces look like and what colors do they incorporate? If you have a lot of bright colors with the other decorations, you may want to choose a neutral color instead of picking a bright pink or yellow as the table cloth color — linens are the canvas of the wedding reception area that you can build from and implement either a focal point to the tables with the linens or as pieces that complement your other decorations. 

Get Familiar With Color Patterns

When planning out linen colors, you may want to consider mixing in threes. With any good design, you’ll have a dominant color, a subdominant color, and a neutral color. Browse what linen options the wedding rental company has and play around with how everything looks. 

Staging Colors

If your wedding has more than just a reception — such as a cocktail hour and formal dining hour — you could coordinate the colors accordingly. Use your more neutral colors for the cocktail hour and make a big impression by staging the dominant and subdominant colors for the formal dinner and reception time. 

Make It Formal

No matter how formal your wedding is, floor-length tablecloths make everything polished and create a more formal look, so always choose the right length! Your napkin selection can also help make things feel more formal. Instead of having cocktail napkins on the tables, upgrade to dinner napkins that have a complementing color to the table cloth or a nice trim, or an unexpected fabric or texture. 

You Don’t Have To Have White

Although white linens are very neutral and versatile, if you’re not a fan, choose a different color. Keep in mind, you can always use a table runner of a different color on top of a white table cloth or a sheer colored fabric that is more than just white, or even use colored napkins to add a splash of color.  

You could also opt for alternating tables with different color tablecloths to break up the white, for example, white and black or white and pale green.   

Add Dimension

There are so many linen fabrics to choose from, you don’t have to stick with just one. Mix and match a couple of different linen materials to create depth and a unique table setting. Choose between satin, damask, organza, taffeta, velvet, sequins, polyester, faux leather, lace, etc. 

Not only can you entertain new and exciting color combinations, but you can incorporate different textural elements for a fun tactile experience for your guests. 

Highlight The Special Reception Tables

You’ll most likely have a cake table, a head table, and family tables — distinguish these special tables with added color, a different pattern, or unique texture.

The Wedding Rental Pieces You Can’t Pass Up

Enchant your wedding with farm benches and bar trolleys from Signature Event Rentals!

The details matter when it comes to planning your big day — your wedding! — and beyond the exciting decor such as flowers and centerpieces, there are many small details that you can choose for a memorable and picture-perfect wedding reception. 

Providing wedding rental services in the DC, Virginia, and Maryland areas, Signature Event Rentals is your go-to for wedding reception essentials. Learn more about the Farm Benches and Bar Trolleys we carry in today’s post. 

Wedding Rentals: The Essentials

Wedding tables and chairs, linens, and catering — those are all the big things that need to be sorted and are the priority of the wedding reception because, for the most part, this is where people are going to be eating and relaxing.

Choosing Wedding Tables

While there are many unique table arrangements you can create, you typically have only round and rectangle tables to choose from. There are advantages and disadvantages to both, but for the right venue and space, both work beautifully to create a wedding reception space to remember. 

Round Tables


  • Cost-effective
  • Roomy
  • Intimate
  • Easy to create seating arrangements


  • Traditional

Rectangle Tables


  • Modern and trendy
  • Great dinner party aesthetics


  • Costly
  • Difficult to accommodate large wedding parties

The best way to dictate your decision is to consider your wedding size and budget — many people get the best of both worlds by choosing a mix of both round and rectangle tables. A couple of ways to make your decision even easier is to plan out specific tables such as the head table, food table, etc., to better coordinate shapes.

The head table is a great place to implement a rectangular table amongst other round guest tables — it distinguishes everyone and allows the guests to have a focal point to celebrate the happy couple. You could also use a rectangle table for other special guests such as your extended family like parents and grandparents. 

If you prefer more rectangle tables to round, you could use round tables as kid tables or to display your cake. 

Our Farm Table and Farm Bench are the perfect complements to a head table at a rustic wedding. Beautifully crafted from fruitwood, these pieces can be used with or without linens. Use a table runner or place a beautiful floral arrangement to complete the unique theme of your wedding. 

Wedding Rentals: Small Details

Once you have the essentials picked out, you can begin narrowing in on the finer details of your wedding. From place settings and food pairings to wedding decor, there are so many things you can choose to make your wedding reception fun for everyone. 

There are the things your guests really care about — which we’ll cover later — and then there are the things that they don’t notice. While it’s entirely up to you on what you want to focus your time, energy, and wedding budget on, here are some things guests don’t think twice about. 

  • Elaborate seating charts or escorts
  • Fancy recessionals
  • Event after event (cutting the cake, garter toss, speeches, dances, etc.)

What guests really do care about are the details that make their experience more enjoyable, things such as:

  • Good food
  • Water stations
  • Great music
  • Comfort (blankets if it gets cold, flip flops for dancing, kid’s activities, etc.)
  • Well-stocked bar

Let’s center on the bar because people at a wedding love to celebrate with delicious cocktails, champagne toasts, and other boozy beverages. 

Signature Event Rentals does wedding reception bars right! Not only can you have the main bar where our staff serves drinks, but you can have an additional Bar Trolley to place amongst your guests. This can serve as a drink station for water and non-alcoholic beverages or as an additional place where your guests can get wine or beer. 

Our Bar Trolley is covered and made of solid wood for a rustic wedding aesthetic. It’s seven feet long and is great at wedding reception venues with plenty of space.

Wedding Reception Tables: The Round Farm Table

Cultivate your dream wedding with Signature Events Rentals!

Is your wedding reception venue one big blank slate, and does that strike any wedding day jitters? Planning a wedding from the ground up and getting all the details just right can be taking on a lot, but not when you have the perfect wedding rental company who has your back.

Signature Event Rentals arranges wedding and tent rentals in the D.C., Virginia, and Maryland areas. Learn more about our Round Farm Table in today’s post!

Wedding Inspiration: Round Wedding Tables

Even if you’re looking at an empty room that you need to transform into your wedding reception, Signature Event Rentals is here to help craft a dreamy wedding scape that perfectly fits your style, round wedding tables included. 

We really love the aesthetic of a round wedding table because they create a more intimate gathering compared to the long, reaching rectangular tables that seem to go on forever, which can sometimes foster a cold and rigid environment.  

Round tables are much more traditional in modern weddings because they’re a great all-around and versatile choice.

Round tables can seat more guests. 

If you’re throwing a large wedding reception with limited space, round tables go unmatched. A typically 60” round table seats approximately six to eight guests and a 72” round table 10 to 12, where a standard 8’ rectangular table can only fit eight guests while taking up more space. 

If space is limited, round tables are always recommended, but if you have some space to play with, you could always consider a mix of rectangular and round tables. 

Round tables may be more cost-effective.

Because round tables can seat more guests, you won’t need as many, which is kinder to your wedding budget. Think about it — not only are more tables more expensive, but you have to consider everything that goes onto a table. The linens, centerpieces, and table settings all add up.

Round tables are more intimate.

Round tables can be configured in many ways, but they’re great because there are always nearby tables and people that surround you, making for a fun and lively wedding reception. There are always people to get to know at the table, and if you turn behind you, there are even more people to meet and make conversation with. Round tables usher abundance and joy — they bring out the merriment of wedding receptions. 

Many people opt for round tables because they seat more, they’re generally less expensive because you won’t require as many, and they’re more intimate, especially if you have a large wedding guest list. 

Decorating a Round Wedding Table

Round tables can be decorated in any color and theme — from a more traditional look of ivory linens and fine china and paired with cross back chairs to a rustic wedding aesthetic with copper mules, mason jars, and burlap. 

One of the only considerations that should be made is keeping shorter floral arrangements for centerpieces. Site lines can be blocked and conversations curtailed when you have high florals. 

The Round Farm Table From Signature Event Rentals

Our Round Farm Table features all solid wood and is available in the 60” size. It’s beautiful enough to be used without linens for a more deconstructed farm or rustic wedding, ushering the simplicity of wood, or it can be covered with your linen color of choice.

Effortlessly mingle the room with a Round Farm Table setup that shines whether it’s rows or an off-centered design, making it easy for you and your guests to have a memorable wedding reception.   

Build An Empty Wedding Space With Signature Event Rentals

Once you’ve selected our Round Farm Table, begin to plan all the specifics surrounding your wedding reception space. Signature Event Rentals have wedding rentals covered, right down to the small details.

Calling The Crossback Chair

Creating a wedding to remember with Signature Event Rentals!

If you’re planning a wedding — the details matter. From picking a wedding theme and colors to the bright botanicals and table centerpieces, it is a lot of work, but it’s also bringing your vision to life. 

Then there are the smaller less thought of details that actually help bring your special day together — the chairs. Don’t forget the chairs! 

Signature Event Rentals cultivates dream weddings in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia area with our specially curated wedding rentals. Learn more about our Crossback Chair in today’s post. 

Wedding Rental Essentials: The Chairs

Whether you’re planning a backyard wedding and need to rent just about everything or you have a venue who provides most of the basics, it’s important to center these things around your aesthetic and comfort. 

Renting chairs even when a venue provides them is a common investment during wedding planning. Many of the chairs just don’t have the aesthetics that bring a cohesiveness, but Signature Event Rentals does! 

Don’t get stuck with office chairs or outdated hotel chairs for your wedding, and select a chair that breathes life — and arguably comfort — into your big day. 

Why focus on wedding chairs?

When people move from the ceremony to the reception, they make a grand entrance and survey the room — they spot the immaculate details you poured over for your table decor. The linens, the flatware, and yes, even the chairs. 

There are a myriad of wedding chairs to choose from, with the most popular wedding chair designs available in a wide range of price points, so you’ll always have a beautiful option that fits your budget. 

The Crossback Chair From Signature Event Rentals  

The Crossback Chair from Signature Event Rentals is an elegant and timeless option for wedding chair rentals. It looks like a piece that you would find in any home but multiplied for your many guests, providing a relaxing and cozy aesthetic. 

The design of the Crossback Chair starts with solid hardwood that contours to the body with a slightly curved seat and the classic crossback curved wood backrest for the ultimate support and comfort when your guests are taking a break from the dancefloor. 

It too has details you’ll love — slightly curved front and rear legs and a rainbow-shaped spindle in front. The smooth and flowing lines give it a romantic style perfect for any wedding reception. 

The Crossback Chair can be used as-is or dressed up to enhance the colors and theme of your wedding. Colored fabric wrapped around the backrest is a very traditional decoration, while some tie guest’s names to the back. You can be as creative and detailed with the decor of the Crossback Chair without losing the simplicity or making it too gaudy. 

The Versatile Crossback Chair

The Crossback Chair has a multifaceted design, making it a perfect piece for a variety of weddings. 

The Outdoor Wedding

Perfect for a summer wedding, the Crossback Chair is a charming addition to the bright florals of the season. The flowing design and curved pieces harmonize with a round table, but also look great with a long rectangle shape as well. 

The simple and clean design matches any wedding color and is an extremely affordable choice. 

Rustic Farm Weddings

If you’re throwing a rustic farm wedding, the Crossback Chair melds perfectly into the ambiance — copper cups, mason jars, and all! They weather well in an outdoor wedding and ours are coated with a polyurethane varnish keeping them protected.   

At the end of the day, you can’t go wrong with the Crossback Chair — it’s sophisticated and elegant as it is simple and distinct. Use it for any indoor or outdoor wedding for a look that will bring your wedding vision to life. 

Wedding Rentals From Signature Event Rentals

Not only do you get the best selection in wedding chairs, including the Crossback Chair, but Signature Events rentals have so many more wedding rentals available. From audio and visual, food service, and concessions to dance floors, linens, and tent rentals, we are your comprehensive event rentals company in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia areas.

Have A Lovely and Lively White Wedding

Have A Lovely and Lively White Wedding

Many people will tell you that an all-white wedding will seem empty and drab. But it’s actually possible to have one that’s not dreary. Also, while using mostly white, you won’t be able to avoid having a touch of other colors, like the greenness of the stems of the white flowers. 

You don’t have to whitewash everything as these small hints of other colors are what will give your wedding the elegance and the luxurious feel you want. 

Aside from the all-white flowers, here are some other things you should consider when having a white wedding. 

The invitations need not be lifeless.

While you’re still going with an all-white theme, your invitation doesn’t need to be literally all-white. You would need other colors to write things on it. No worries if you’re going for minimalism, as you can choose subdued colors — black against a backdrop of white, or you can choose gray for the font color instead. 

If you’re not really going for minimalism (and you aren’t afraid to use other colors), you can incorporate any color but make sure that the focus is still white. Use a chunky large font (against a single color) for the invitation cover. Much better if you use some graphics, say, illustrations of people all wearing white. 

White has a variety of style choices.

There’s no need to be afraid that the entourage won’t have that many style choices. On the contrary, the color white still has many shades to choose from — there’s ivory, cream, snow, eggshell, or milk. Plus, you can still play with the different textures and fabrics for the bridesmaids’ dresses. 

If the groom isn’t keen on wearing shades of white for his suit, he can still follow the motif by wearing pale colors like a light brown tux or a pale gray one. 

White blocks of cake are still beautiful.

You can still opt for some hints of other colors to decorate your white cake. Additionally, you can use flowers (whether edible or not) to style your wedding cake, and let the green of the stems and leaves give it the pop of color you want. If you’re all-in with the single white color, what you can do is play with the texture of the icing.

How to Handle Wedding Guest Problems

How to Handle Wedding Guest Problems

How to Handle Wedding Guest Problems

Wedding plans are already hard to manage in the first place, and having to deal with uncooperative guests could bring you too close to your breaking point. There is no need to worry as you can handle wedding guest problems with grace just like with the other items on your wedding planning checklist. Here are some tips:

When unwanted guests get invited…

Most of the time, having unwanted guests is a result of some people inviting themselves. They’ll just announce to the bride and groom-to-be (or the couple’s family) that they’ll be attending. If this happens, what you can do is to not send them a copy of the invitation. If the said guest is persistent, you could make sure that the details of the event don’t reach them at all. Avoid posting anything on social media prior to the event. Should you have to use social media, create a private group chat. You can also assign people to serve as point-of-contact so you don’t have to have too many people on the group chat. 

If in case your parents (or other invited guests) are responsible for inviting the unwanted guests, talk to them about doing the “uninviting” for you. Try to be as calm as possible but be firm that you will not allow the unwanted guests to be at your wedding.

When the uninvited guest still shows up on your wedding day, well, just ignore him or her as much as possible. Don’t let anyone ruin your big day. Deal with the uninvited guest on another day.

When family members and friends are known for their embarrassing behavior…

You probably have relatives who are known for their ill-mannered behavior. And since they are part of the family, you can’t just uninvite them to the occasion. If you’re sure they will cause a scene, you can choose to have an intimate immediate family-only ceremony. To pacify them, what you can do is to just invite them to the reception. You can make up an excuse that you’re working within a budget, or that you did that for their sake as you don’t want them to have to sit still for a long time. 

Additionally, you can also just opt to have 2 separate receptions: one specifically for friends and colleagues, and another for family and relatives. Since your relatives are most likely aware of what to expect from the cheeky members anyway, they would not have as many complaints. These receptions don’t have to be full-blown events either. A simple sitdown meal for both should be enough to pacify them. 

When a guest gets too involved with the decisions…

Some guests like to provide unsolicited advice. And while you can try to ignore them, there are some who like to air out their disappointment when you don’t heed their advice. If this happens and you want to take the high road, just tell them that their advice came a little too late and that the details have already been finalized.

Tips on Hiring Your Wedding Photographer and Videographer

Tips on Hiring Your Wedding Photographer and Videographer

Tips on Hiring Your Wedding Photographer and Videographer


Aside from hiring people with their own equipment with which they are familiar with, there is more to choosing wedding videographers and photographers than just their rates. 

  1. Decide if you want both a photographer and a videographer.

This decision can help you save money, as you can choose to spend less if you want just one service anyway. If you decide to have both, you should be looking into people who are great at both. However, since these experts are usually more proficient in one area more than the other, consider hiring two separate professionals for each job. Of course, this would cost more compared to hiring one who’s at least good with both. 

So, if you prefer to have a video you want to re-watch over and over, just go with a great videographer. Their photography skills won’t matter so you can get a better deal. The same goes for a photographer with a great eye with photos but not in shooting videos. 

  1. When choosing a professional, find one with a similar point of view as you and your partner.

While we can’t deny that the pros know more about videos and photos, sometimes pros tend to come up with shots that are too repetitive. You might end up with the same poses as the other hundred couples before you. Make sure your vision as a couple should have some weight in the outcome of the photos and videos. 

Another thing is to consider what type of photos and videos you want. Do you prefer candid photos only? With videos, do you find drone shots too mainstream? Find a professional who can make your vision come to life. Also, even if you’re open to anything, you should look for a videographer or a photographer that’s not only creative, but also has fresh ideas. 

  1. Settle on what the output’s quality should be.

Your wedding happens once in a lifetime — that exact day will only happen once. If the professionals weren’t able to capture the moment of your vows, or if the pictures were blurry, there’s no retake. So making sure you’re hiring actual experts is a must. Check their portfolio and if possible, watch their previous same-day edit videos. Also, make sure the contract is explicit on the guarantees for any mishap.

Have Fun Choosing Your Wedding Colors 

Your wedding colors set the tone and ambience of your wedding day. However, choosing what looks perfect or what fits you and your partner can be quite a chore. If you’re not in the mood to look at a color wheel, here’s some options on how to choose the best one. 

1. Find a few colors that you and your partner likes.

This is the easiest way to choose: by just settling on what colors you and your partner likes. The only thing that you have to watch out for is if your colors don’t complement each other. If you don’t care about rules and like being rebellious, you can go through with them. If not, what you can do is to find another color that complements both colors to somehow bridge them. 

An example is when you’re afraid orange and green can’t go together, just add yellow in the middle to harmonize them. Of course, try to use pastel-ish versions. Try not to use any neons as they are harder to match and put together. 

2. Find colors that fit the season of your wedding day. 

If you can’t decide what colors to choose, use the current season as your inspiration. Getting married on a summer’s day? Try sky blue and sand white, or sea green and salmon color. 

Tying the knot in a winter wedding gives you the opportunity to use rich color combinations like mauve and jade, or magenta and yellow. 

You can turn to vibrant fall colors if you’re getting married during the autumn season. Burnt orange, browns and navy blues can highlight your color motif for your special day. 

Of course, spring colors are just as lovely. This is your chance to use flamboyant color combinations like hot pink and lemon yellow, and get away with it.

Alternatively, you can use what flowers are in season and then choose similar complementary colors.

3. Find colors that look good on you and your spouse-to-be. 

If you’re impartial to whatever looks good and doesn’t really have a preference with colors, just choose colors that look good on both of you. If you’ve not heard of skin undertones, you should look into it. It’s basically that if you have a warm undertone, rich warm colors look good on you while cool colors will make you look pale, and vice versa. 

Choosing your wedding colors doesn’t have to be hard. Don’t be afraid to experiment and mix and match colors. It’s your wedding, after all. Have fun!
