With Pinterest, Instagram and wedding blogs at every brides finger tips, you never know when inspiration can strike! Whether its a bouquet of flowers, a piece of art, a chic outfit or a photo of another wedding reception – we love when brides come to us with their favorite ideas. We recently had a bride fall in love with the following images from our fabulous and creative friend’s over at Ooh Events:

We fell in love with this wedding too! It was intimate and classically elegant with a rustic touch. I mean, what’s not to love? So, what happens when you fall in love with a photo but you can’t accomplish the look within your wedding budget? Well, that’s where The White Box comes in. With a few tweaks, our stylish bride achieved the look and feel of the inspiration image without breaking the bank.

Here’s what we did:

By bringing in accessories like natural bark vases and using true linen fabric tablecloths we were able to provide that hint of rustic character. Substituting white chiavari chairs for the circle back chairs still succeeded in creating a classic and polished look with a less expensive price tag. String lights were a must in order to complete this style but in this case renting them would actually have cost the bride a bit more than she could afford. Instead, purchasing the bulb lights from Target saved her quite the pretty penny. With two long swoops across the dinner area the look totally came together. In addition to the reception furniture & linens, we suggested invitations that fit within her wedding budget and created a cohesive theme throughout her wedding. Our blushing bride wound up with a unique reception design without having to sacrifice the look she loved or her bank account.
