Delightful Douglass Reception

As spring begins, wedding season starts to bloom! This past weekend, Mahaffey Tent & Party Rentals proved its dedication to providing quality structures by constructing an elegant reception tent for a wedding planned by Social Graces that brought simplistic décor and elaborate design together to create the perfect atmosphere!

Fortunate to have beautiful weather for such a special occasion, the setting and décor of the event established a simplistic yet sophisticated ambience. Guests gathered beneath a 40×80 Mahaffey clear top tent, which allowed in natural light and provided a view of the clear blue sky above. Adding further simplistic elegance to the setting, Italian bulbs provided by Event Brite draped from the ceiling and were accented by an ornate chandeliers.

Mahaffey’s simplistically-styled farm tables and farm chairs filled this extraordinary space and struck a harmonious balance with the exquisite look of the chandeliers, Italian bulbs and elegant ceiling liners. Functionally, they also provided guests means to take a short break from dancing the night away and take in the scene around them before continuing the celebration.

We want to give a big thank you to our wonderful partners at Social Graces and the talented team at Event Brite for their part in creating this ever-so-chic celebration!

Tuesday Trends: 5 Ways to Use Social Media at Your Wedding

If social media had a mission statement, it would be to bring people together while simultaneously keeping them informed. Here are 3 ways to do just that for the bride and groom’s big day!

1. Planning: A decade ago, wedding planning meant stacks of magazines and a three-ring binder for most brides. Today, everything needed to plan a wedding can be found on a smart phone. Pinterest is a great resource for getting ideas on everything from hair styles to bridesmaids dresses to event decor. And for the brides that don’t want every detail of their wedding shared before the big day, Pinterest has secret boards. If a bride needs more than inspiration to plan a wedding, Google has a wedding budget template and apps like lover.ly and The Knot can help tame the chaos before the nuptials. 

2. Day-Of Coordination: Utilize apps like Wedding Party, Wedding Planner for iPad, and appy couple for a more seamless day of experience. These apps have can coordinate vendor information, send out email reminders to the wedding party when they need to be somewhere, keep a shot list for photographers and so much more.

3. Crowdsource Your Photographs: Wedding photographs are the piece of the ceremony and reception that will last forever and many couples don’t want to miss out on the moments between their guests. Crowdsourcing wedding photos is a great way to involve their guests and have photographs they would otherwise not have. A popular trend now is creating a wedding hashtag and having guests share their photos on twitter and Instagram using the hashtag. Apps like WedPics, Snapable, and Eversnap allow the couple, the wedding party, and all the guests to share photos and videos during the ceremony and reception and order prints and albums to help remember the day.

Tuesday Trend: Eclectic Themes

The eclectic theme has become a huge trend this year and like many, we’re in love! The key in creating this ultra-chic look is to mix and match opposite elements. There are MANY ways to achieve this style, and Mahaffey is here to help!

At your next event, try mixing a modern, upscale location with shabby-chic decorations, or vice versa, for an easy way in achieving this look. Another approach is to only focus on the decorative pieces. Here are some ideas that we love: adding chandeliers to a barn-like venue, pairing vintage tableware to patterned linens, and combining shaded and non-shaded glassware. Tying these pieces to one another will create the perfect eclectic atmosphere!

Want to create this trend for your next event? Mahaffey Tent & Party Rentals has a variety of items ranging from lighting, flatware, linens, tables and more to help create the ultimate eclectic theme! Stop by our showroom or schedule an appointment with one of our event specialists today at 901.457.4538!
