Take a Look at Unique Gifts for Your Bridesmaids for Your Wedding

However, with many flowers to choose from, you may be curious as to which blooms would be best for your own nuptials.

We believe that every wedding should showcase gorgeous floral arrangements! That’s why, here at Knots ‘N Such, as Raleigh wedding florists, we have gathered the top three flowers chosen for wedding floral arrangements, to inspire your own big day. If you would like to discover what these flowers are, be sure to read on:

  • Roses

    Of course, roses top the list when it comes to the most popular flower chosen for weddings! These tried and true blooms symbolize romance, and their intricate appearance prompts couples to want to showcase them throughout their big day. Presented in an array of colors, from reds to pinks, you can discover the perfect hue to complement your wedding color scheme.

  • Hydrangeas

    The abundant and elegant appearance of hydrangeas certainly adds a dash of sophistication to any arrangement they are placed within. Posing as the perfect filler flowers, these blooms are adored by couples! However, know that hydrangeas can showcase a gorgeous appearance all on their own as well. In addition, they are typically chosen in white, but are highlighted in other colors as well, such as blue.

  • Peonies

    Sweet and simple, and anything but lackluster, peonies are certainly one of a kind blooms! The tender presentation that is showcased by these lovely flowers will add a dash of romance to any arrangement they are placed within. Subtle pinks are the go-to color when it comes to peonies, allowing you to highlight a little love with this intricate bloom.

Every couple deserves to have stunning floral arrangements on their big day! These are just a few flowers that you could choose to comprise your own arrangements.

Last year, I had the opportunity to attend a Team Flower workshop in Boone, NC.  Kelley treated us to luxurious accommodation in a mountain-top cabin.  Designers from all over the southeast attended and what a pleasure it was to have such amazing support.  The first day we had an in-depth discussion of business practices, workflows, and pricing strategies.  The second and third day was spent doing hands-on design.  The beautiful blooms were provided by many local farms, including a fellow Chapel Designer and Team Flower member, Susan Wright of Shady Grove Gardens.  On the last day, Heather Payne Photography attended to take professional images of our work.  Shout out to Kelly from Team Flower who showered us with beautiful gifts, food, and education.  It was truly a delight, and I’m excited to share with you some of the images of my work done there.

Our Favorite Trend: The Hoop, tips from Knots ‘N Such, Raleigh Wedding Planner and Florist

Knots ‘N Such, Raleigh Wedding Planner and Florist

I love how wedding trends are always evolving and changing.  Studying and trying new decor and arrangements are a love of mine.  One trend that has really caught my eye (and one that I would love to see make its way into the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill wedding scene) is the use of hoops.  These are not your grandmother’s normal embroidery hoops. Knots ‘N Such, Raleigh wedding planner and florist, is here to share with you how you might incorporate the hoops trend into your wedding day design.

  1. Bouquets
    • Maybe you are looking for a unique take on a bouquet for your wedding day.  Taking an embroidery hoop, a florist can cover the hoop with a variety of florals and greenery to create an eye catching and remarkable bouquet.  It also has the added benefit of being easy to carry and can easily set on your arm, in case you need it.
  2. Backdrops and Hanging Decor
    • Another way to incorporate hoops into your wedding day is into wall decor, like the one on the picture above. Thinking of the ceremony side of things, you might create a beautiful and eye-catching backdrop of hoops with a variety of sizes. At the reception, you can create a focal point that draws the guests eye to places like the cake table or sweetheart table. The center of the hoops can be covered with wire, thread, fabric, etc. to create a unique touch and beautiful photography.
  3. Chandeliers
    • Like backdrops and hanging decor, another way to incorporate hoops is with chandelier-like pieces.  Use of greenery and Christmas lights can help define the center of the dance floor.  For an outdoor wedding, you might think about hanging a variety of hoops from trees to create a “Secret Garden” like atmosphere.
  4. Seating Charts, Table Numbers, and Other Unique Details
    • I have seen a variety of ways to have your seating chart displayed: mirrors, chalkboards, wooden features, etc.  You can also use a hoop as a way to get people to their seats.  Having a hoop seating chart can then tie into smaller hoops with table numbers and other unique table scape features that tie your theme together.

As a wedding planner and florist, in my consultations, I really urge my brides to see the importance of cohesiveness.  Creating the same look and style from end to end.  Thinking flowers, colors, shapes, metallics, etc.  Use of hoops can be a cohesive unit, tying the wedding together from ceremony to reception.  Check out this Pinterest search on a variety of decor ideas involving this trend. Knots ‘N Such, Raleigh Wedding Planner and Florist, would love to talk and work with you to use the trend of hoops in your wedding. Stay tuned for next week as we talk about more bouquet alternatives.  Contact us today!

There is finally a chill in the air, and winter is quickly approaching! These 2017 trends are sure to win any winter wedding!

 

  • Leather Jackets: edgier brides will enjoy the leather look this season, being both sensible and statement making!

  • Faux Fur: adorn your bridal party in fancy faux fur, or even offer guests their own blanket as a gift!
  • Neon Signs: this is always a cool statement piece, but especially for the trendy 2017 bride who wants a unique way to showcase her wedding hashtag or new name!
  • Dark Florals: bridesmaids have their own winter trend! Darker floral patterns on gowns is huge right now, especially in colors such as burgundy, purple and navy!

9 Ways to Illuminate Your Wedding Day – Tips from a Raleigh Wedding Planner & Florist

Feature photo by Thirteenth Moon Photography . Knots ‘N Such is a Raleigh wedding planner & florist.

One of my favorite wedding elements has to be lighting. There are so many beautiful and creative options to choose from….Each as unique and symbolic as the love being expressed. In this week’s blog, we’re putting a spotlight on 9 ways to illuminate your wedding day. 

1. Sky Lanterns

Floating Lantern / Sky Lantern

At #1… Sky lanterns are a symbol for play and festivities in Asian cultures. So how do these beautiful floating symbols actually work? They’re typically made of a very thin paper on a light weight frame. A small flame from a candle or other flammable item heats the air inside the lantern causing it to rise into the sky, sorta like a hot air balloon. What a lovely way of symbolizing the beginning of a marriage!

 

2. Floating Candles

Taking the #2 spot is floating candles. Floating candles of all sizes and shapes are now on the market. They also come in a variety of colors. My favorite is classic white or ivory in a clear glass vessel. Such an inexpensive but elegant way to create a romantic ambience for your reception!

3. Pinspot Lighting

Ever thought of illuminating your cake and centerpieces? This is known as pinspot lighting, #3 in our list. Think of how much you pay for these gorgeous creations. Then think of how they fade into the background when the lights are dimmed in the room! Using pinspot lighting, you can make them stand out and show their beauty all evening. You’ll notice most of the high end venues include pinspot lighting in their ceilings, but for any venue, you can bring in a professional lighting company to provide this.

4.  Twinkle Lights

Coming in at #4… Twinkle lights litter Pinterest, right?! There’s a good reason for that. They can make nearly any item shine and look amazing! I’ve decorated trees with them, put them inside vases, bottles, jars, and cloches, and wrapped tables and columns with them! The only limit is your own imagination on this one. I particularly love wrapping posts or columns with them and adding drapery over it. Oh la la!

5. GOBOs

 

Taking the spot at #5 is GOBOs. Funny word for a not so funny decor element! Your lighting company or DJ can provide a variety of shapes and designs through which to shine light onto your dance floor. They can also create a custom shape for you. Most popular is the monogram. How special to have your new family monogram in the center of the dance floor or above the cake table!

6. Chandeliers 

Who doesn’t love a romantic chandelier in nearly any kind of space?! Number 6 adds instant class and elegance to your wedding, whether you use them under an arbor for the ceremony, in the ceiling of a tent, or over the dance floor!

7. Hanging CandlesGold Vase Elevated Centerpieces

That’s right, you can hang candles these days! I have the cutest little holders that just beg to be used anywhere and everywhere! I’ve used them on walls behind cake tables, on manzanita trees lining the ceremony aisle, and under pergolas for cocktail hour! They’re amazing and add a simple and gorgeous touch!

8. Uplighting

Your DJ is your ultimate source for uplighting, #8 on our list. And don’t think that means it’s only bright flashing dance lights. Continuous uplighting in a white or amber on the walls is elegant and classy around the perimeter of your reception room. Many venues are including these as well, which makes their rental packages so enticing!

9. String Lights

The #9 spot goes to a wide variety of string lights.  Some popular forms include xmas lights, market lights, fairy curtains, lighted garlands, and Edison lights. Many of these lights also can be found in nearly every color imaginable. String them around your tent, over your deck, over the dance floor, around the arbor, or anywhere you can imagine!

Inspiration from a Raleigh Wedding/Event Planner: Unique Down to the Letter

Feature photo by Renee Sprink. Knots ‘N Such is a Raleigh wedding/event planner & florist.

I just love when clients seek unique personal touches for their wedding day – something whimsical and inspired by their love story. However, sometimes couples need a creative planner & designer help them think outside the box! For this week’s blog, we’re talking about ways to incorporate the art of calligraphy into your wedding day…in uncommon ways…above and beyond the invitation! We spoke with Jessica Yee, owner of The Oblique Pen Calligraphy and Engraving Studio, about things she’s lettered and things she wants to letter!

Common uses of Calligraphy:

Inspiration from a Raleigh Wedding/Event Planner: Creative Calligraphy Uses for Your Wedding

Photography by Renee Sprink

First, let’s review some common uses of calligraphy. Calligraphy is often used in the creation of invitations, envelopes, place cards, menus, programs, and wedding signage (chalkboards and mirrors). Compared to digital designs of these wedding must haves, the use of hand lettering adds a level of elegance and personal branding. There are so many different types of fonts and styles when choosing and using calligraphy for your staple pieces. In the right hands, pen and ink can create powerful emotion. A skilled calligrapher can help you choose the perfect script and style for your story. As for all your wedding vendors, hire experience! Jessica has 25+ years of that, so has a huge library of lettering styles to share with clients.

Unique Ways to Use Calligraphy:

The reason I love Jess? She gets giddy with excitement when she has a chance to create something bold and DIFFERENT! Often brides want a one of a kind experience for their wedding, but can’t think of how to accomplish that. Taking inspo from Angelina Jolie, why not letter your wedding gown? Jessica had the opportunity to do this recently for a styled shoot with one of the best local photographers in the Triangle. The model’s gown was covered in romantic French quotes about love and marriage in Jessica’s distinctive lettering style. Create a family heirloom that can be handed down for generations! (More to come from that shoot, but for now it’s under wraps!)

Please Be Seated Mirror

When it comes to choosing the item or items that you’d like to enhance with calligraphy, start thinking of every item that will be a part of the wedding. Through either ink or engraving, the sky is the limit when it comes to surfaces that Jess can letter. Back in the day, when the post office allowed unusual items to be mailed, Jess lettered wooden spoons for save-the-dates. So cool, right? So think about EVERY item… Chargers? Check. Sea shell escort cards? Check. Metal compass place cards for a travel themed wedding? Check. Card boxes? Check. People? Check. Wait, what?!!! Yes… even people. Jessica has hand lettered inspirational friendship quotes on bridesmaids. Are you the go big or go home type? Letter their arms or backs. Want something simpler? Have Jessica letter on a bracelet or necklace. A temp tattoo for the big day!

 

Calligraphy Gifts:

Looking for gift ideas for the wedding party? Sure you can order robes for your bridesmaids, but why not take it a step further and let Jess letter them?And for the guys? Present them with engraved items like a bottle of scotch or cigar box. And you can always keep the gifts to yourselves, after all, you’re the guests of honor? So how about engraved champagne flutes, wine carafe, or cake serving set In the hands of a skilled calligrapher, nearly any object can go from ordinary to extraordinary.

 

Interested in Calligraphy:

If you are interested in hiring a calligrapher to make your special day even more so, it is important to remember to book early. Talk to your chosen calligrapher about your needs and wants. And of course, Jess & I can help you come up with lots more ideas!

Groom and Groomsmen Attire – Tips from a Raleigh Wedding Planner

Feature photo by Riley McLean Weddings. Knots ‘N Such is a Raleigh area wedding planner & florist.

I’ve seen my fair share of brightly colored wedding attire over the years and I am not just speaking of the bridesmaids. Brightly colored vests among the groom and groomsmen seems to linger and always takes me back to my teen years when my older brother work a hot pink cumber-bun and bow tie with his gray tux. However,  I am here to assure you that there is nothing wrong with going classic instead. In fact, classic style is making a much needed come back.  A simple 2 or 3-piece suit paired with a neutral button up is simple and elegant….dashing even. If you desire color, there are ways to incorporate flourishes without going over the top.  The bride and groom’s attire should complement each other, as should the groomsmen and bridesmaids. The wedding party is a reflection of the happy couple, but this does not mean that the men must all match and look uniform; on the contrary, having suits that all match could be seen staged and not as natural. Here are some tips from a Raleigh wedding planner to consider when choosing the guys’ attire. 

Theme:

Raleigh Wedding Planner & Florist

The most common reason to use color among the men of the wedding party is the style and wedding color palette. However, there are other ways to bring pops of that desired color into the attire without sacrificing that classic look and comfort. Consider a colorful boutonniere, tie, pocket square or cuff-links. These accessories can add just enough flare to draw the eye and pull the whole look together.

 When and Where:

McCardell Photography

Will the wedding be outdoor or in? What season will you choose for your big day? What climate is common for that time of year? These are important details to consider when choosing the Groom and Groomsmen’s attire as well. For instance, as a Raleigh wedding planner, I have planned my share of  spring weddings in  North Carolina. The weather is warm and the couple usually wants an outdoor ceremony to mark the season and the occasion. A vest may add an unnecessary layer in the NC heat. So choose light weight and light colors for warmer months. Choose dark and rich items for cooler months. Keep in mind… More often than not, the bride has a change of attire as the night goes on, and the groom will most likely take off his jacket to be more comfortable. And that’s okay once the I do’s are over!

Personality:

Raleigh Wedding Planner & Florist

Jocelyn & Ryan Photography

Last, but not least, let’s talk about personality. We all know about the mismatched bridesmaid dress trend in recent years – and I’m a fan! In a similar vein… If the groom and groomsmen wore matching suits, their personality wouldn’t shine through nearly as bright. They lose their individuality. Now, no one is saying that these fine gentlemen should upstage the bride. However, these men were chosen for a reason. It would be a shame to take away the personal touches that put them in this position in the first place. Let’s say they all wore a charcoal or navy colored suit, not matching… but similar.  You can always add personalized details to each that represents who they are. If all of their suits did not match perfectly, and the colors were more simple and regal, the appearance of the wedding party will appear more relaxed, at ease, thus providing the perfect atmosphere  and the potential for some amazing wedding pictures.

A wedding is more than just being flashy and making everything memorable.  A wedding is a compromise, the beginning of a lifelong agreement to always talk things out, no matter how difficult.  Agreeing on wedding attire is a good place to start, especially when going for a timeless look that will still look good fifty years from now.

Classic vs. Cliché – Winter Wedding Tips from a Raleigh Wedding Planner

Knots ‘N Such is a Raleigh wedding planner & florist. Feature photo by Riley McLean Weddings.

Today we’re talking about winter weddings. With the first day of winter just a few days past, we are now officially in the season of colder weather. Brrr! If you’re planning a winter themed wedding, grab your hot chocolate and listen up.

Most brides choose their wedding season for a reason, and winter is no different. Maybe you love evergreen and snow, or maybe you just want your guests to be comfortable in their party clothes. But winter weddings pose their own sets of challenges, just like spring, summer or fall weddings. If you’re throwing a winter-themed wedding, here are some tips to keep it from feeling too cliché.

1. Keep decorations classic.

When we think winter, we think snowflakes and certain color schemes: Red, gold, green, silver, blue. These are all beautiful ideas that bring back a lot of good memories. But to avoid feeling a little too on the nose, keep things rooted in a classic feel. If you’re going silver and gold, considering using these beautiful (but strong) colors as accents. Imagine metallic chargers on simple white table cloths, for example, or metallic flower vessels or candle holders. Contrasting with a more simple color, such as white, red or lavender will add a luxe feel without overwhelming your palette. If you’re going with a classic holly red as an accent, keep the touches small. It’s easy for a bright color to overwhelm your wedding.

Check out some winter themed ideas here.

2. Add a few nostalgic winter touches…but not too many.

If you decide to serve roasted chestnuts as a party favor, that’s a small touch of winter cheer that will have your guests smiling. Roasted chestnuts, fake snow, a hot chocolate bar, snowflakes, AND evergreen? That might be going a bit too far. Pick the details you really want and ensure they’re done well. This goes for any themed wedding. It’s easy to go overboard, but hard to draw back and be selective. Pick the details that really mean something to you, or you think will be a hit with guests.

3. Don’t add nonseasonal flowers.

In our current day and age, we can get flowers all year round, no matter the season. But it won’t stop a spring or summer flower looking out of place, especially if you live in a climate where winters are, you know, actually cold. Here in the Raleigh area, we have mild winters, but it still gets into the low twenties. So a bright summer daisy might seem out of place, especially if your guests are bundling just to walk from their car to the chapel. If you’re dead set on having out-of-season flowers, be sure to avoid the ones that are brightly colored. A yellow daisy will just look out of place surrounded by lush winter foliage.

For example, take a look at this beautiful floating centerpiece I designed for a recent shoot!

4. Do your research.

The best way to decide if something’s your style is to research it. Make a Pinterest board, a mood board, or just bookmark every winter wedding picture you can find. Knowing what you want is the easiest way to make sure your wedding is exactly how you want it. If you like an idea, keep it in mind and bring it up to your wedding planner.

As professionals, wedding planners (like myself) have lots of experience, and know how to make your dreams a reality. It’s our job to make sure your wedding, themed or not, is exactly what you want.

Flowers In Your Menu? – Tips from a Raleigh Wedding Planner

An ancient tradition, a formal tradition, a yuppie tradition—call it what you will, the edible flowers in the punch at a recent wedding were a blast!

Maybe I’m biased given my double identity as a florist, but seriously, dare to be different, anyone? The couple floated those light blooms in those drinks and guests just drank it up (pun intended).

Edible flowers aren’t exactly a new thing—the Romans used to adorn their dishes with petals and greenery—but they’re not overly common, at least not outside your five-star restaurant. But believe it or not, a lot of flowers make the potential list. From lavender to honeysuckle, locally grown blossoms can add some pizzazz to your menu in a very subtle way.

And it’s not limited to the punch bowl, either.

Raleigh Wedding Planner & Florist

Flowers most commonly accompany entrées, especially meat dishes. But I’ve also seen them dressing up a gorgeous wedding cake (or insert your chosen dessert here) or filling out an otherwise tiny appetizer.

Most of the flavors are pretty subtle. The ideal itself is pretty subtle; some guests might not even realize you’re supposed to eat them. But it’s certainly an off-the-beaten-path way to incorporate more flowers into your big day. And your friends and family will get a kick out of it, too!
