Love, Laugh, and Celebrate…Friendship!

When we think of celebrating our wedding day, we all think of the rehearsal dinner, the ceremony, and the reception. We believe the celebrations don’t end there! A wedding also celebrates those special friends and family who were with us on the journey to this special day.

It is for that reason, that we here at MyEasternShoreWedding (MESW) love a bridal suite! We can’t think of a better place to gather your bff’s and close family to celebrate not only your wedding day but friendship, and the intimacy that comes with being the very best of friends.

The River House at the Easton Club boasts a beautifully decorated Bridal Suite for the bride and her bridesmaids. They know that remembering the special moments on your wedding day is what it’s really all about. And to enhance your experience, River House offers these wonderful packages:

Bridal Breakfast– Seasonal Fruit parfaits, Assortment of bagels & muffins, coffee, tea, & orange juice

Ladies Luncheon- Assortment of wraps and sandwiches, fresh seasonal fruit, garden tossed salad; house made potato chips & bottled water & ice tea

Wine and Cheese Pairing- A sampling of fine, imported and domestic cheese, fresh seasonal fruits, San Pellegrino and sparkling waters, assorted soft beverages and a choice of chardonnay, champagne or pinot grigio

Hors D’ Oeuvres Assortment- Fresh cantaloupe wrapped in prosciutto and drizzled with balsamic reduction, hummus & veggie platter with pita bread and cocktail shrimp

This charming space is included in all their wedding packages and is the perfect intimate spot for you and your maids on your big day. The suite is finely furnished with an oversized mirror (perfect for photos!), comfy couches and chairs for relaxing; creating ample space for you and your girls to laugh, love and enjoy, this very special time!

Another Gorgeous Wedding on the Shore!
July 17, 2014

The ladies of MyEasternShoreWedding (MESW) have a small (secret) obsession- wedding trends. Now that we’re almost exactly halfway through 2014, we wanted to see what trends projected for this year stuck and which did not.

We talked with Kari Rider of Kari Rider Events, who as you may remember, writes our yearly wedding trend spotlight for our blog. Kari shared pictures from a gorgeous “Real Wedding” she planned recently that blew us away with how many of these trends were actually represented in one amazing wedding.

When planning a wedding on the Shore, Kari makes your dream come true. She knows what’s hot and creates an atmosphere of wedding bliss! No detail is too small or look too grand. And, most importantly, she does it with ease and grace.

Just take a look at her handiwork:

Colors
Pinks were high on the list, including most every hue in the spectrum from dusty to mauve (no Barbie pink here!)

Farms:
The rustic look was projected to be very popular, with farms, farmhouses, unfinished buildings high on the list for venues. Wood slabs and wooden table accents were also predicted to be on-trend- and boy were they ever!

Vintage:
Period furniture, antique lace runners, vintage doors, pearls, re-purposed flea market finds (think cool distressed candlesticks) have all proved their staying power and popularity so far this year.

Opulent fabrics:
Good-bye boring tablecloths! Brides were predicted to prefer opulent fabrics on the table, with color and texture. They didn’t disappoint! Gorgeous tablecloths, runners, napkins, flags, and chair covers were a beautiful, unique focal point!

Cakes:
It is all about the texture! No smooth fondant unless it is dressed up with flower clusters, ribbon flourishes, and custom themes.

How do all of these details come together, you ask? A great planner, of course! Kari will make that Pinterest board come alive!

Lights, Camera, Wedding!
July 10, 2014

Inspired event lighting is the perfect opportunity to create mood, design, and visual impact within the wedding venue. Lights make your occasion feel like a celebration, make pictures pop, and allow your guests to see the amazing food you’re serving. Flowers, drapery, and tablecloths will be lost if you don’t show them off after sunset!

“You don’t have to overspend to make an impact with lighting but you do need to consider what purpose it will serve.” says Mark Peach, owner and operator of On Your Mark Lighting Design and Equipment. A good lighting designer listens to your needs and suggests lights that can serve multiple purposes making them functional and attractive. For example, they may suggest that you line the driveway with “Fete Lights” (a pretty strand of light bulbs strung between poles) providing light for departing guests and adding a festive feeling to the venue. “Up-Lights” with a blush colored leaf pattern could be used to jazz up the plain white ceiling and give the tent an intimate ambiance.

Before speaking with your lighting director, here are a few things to consider:
• What purpose will the lights fulfill? An ambient or artistic purpose?
• Does your food or bar area need lighting for working purposes?
• Do you need to light along a pathway to the parking area or for a gathering space outside?
• Do you want to highlight a certain architectural feature, such as trees or columns, or your floral arrangements at the venue?
• Do you just need casual dimmed lighting for the bar or flashing dance floor lighting?

Mark suggests brides and wedding planners bring wedding inspiration pictures when meeting with a lighting designer; there may be lighting options for your desired looks to achieve your design goals. That is the benefit of hiring professionals with experience. Inspired event lighting can help create incredible pictures and memories of your special day!
