Hello Cai,


I was wondering where I could get a dress like that one you wore for your "the kid in me" engagement shoot? Also, we our having a long head table (5 6-foot banquet tables pushed together). How do you think I should decorate it? The other guest tables are round with lavender pintuck table cloths. My planner said do white with table skirting. Should I do table skirting on my head table? I feel like it is so outdated. What do you think I should do instead? Thanks!

Hey there!

My outfit from that shoot is actually 3 separate pieces - a bustier and tulle skirt fr Urban Outfitters, and a flower girls belt from Davids Bridal. HTH :)

As for your head table, what are your other wedding colors? I would tend to agree w you about the table skirting but did she send you a pic? It may look nice depending on the look of it. Also have you considered maybe also doing a lavender table cloth but with an overlay w some sparkle, design, another color, etc? So that it stands out fr the rest. If you could give me more info about your wedding design and theme, pics, etc. I can think of more ideas :)

My colors are blue, purple, and silver. Since we couldn't afford Chiavari chairs, we must to white seat covers with lavender pintuck sashes. I am getting married at a botanical garden. They told me to just keep the head table white because I guess it's standard? Is it okay to have floor length table linen without the table skirting, even with 5 banquet tables? I'm so lost! What did you do for your head table? 


General idea of the color of the guest tables (sorry I didn't have the right chair or table for the pic)

Do you have a picture of your venue and the reception area? And a photo of the white table the venue is suggesting? Itll help me give you ideas :) You can do whatever you want as long as they allow it and its in your budget IMO. I did floor length table linens without table skirting and I think they looked perfect. 


For now I came up with..


What you have:


Your guest tables (minus the napkin in the coffee cup - this is just the stock photo I found but just for the general idea of your guest table w chair sash)


Do you have a photo 2769138-1Do you have a photo 2769138-2


Do you have a photo 2769138-3 


What you can do:


You can do silver, purple, or violet linen for the head table:


Do you have a photo 2769138-4


Do you have a photo 2769138-5


With a darker linen maybe the white flowers for the head table and purple flowers for the guests.


Do you have a photo 2769138-6


Do you have a photo 2769138-7


OR a pretty overlay maybe nice and keep the lavender linen for the head table as well:


Do you have a photo 2769138-8


What we did was keep the guest table linens grey (which came with our venue) and got a silver pintuck linen for our sweetheart table (we didnt do a head table). 


Here are some pics so you get an idea:


Guest tables:


Do you have a photo 2769138-9


Sweetheart table:


Do you have a photo 2769138-10


HTH!! Let me know if you need anything else :)

Thanks for all the help! :)


This is my reception venue. I know it looks kind of blah but the hall has a lot of windows that overlook the garden we will be married in so we loved it. 


Thanks for all the photo 2770079-1


I think this is what my caterer had in mind with table skirting. It is so outdated looking:


Thanks for all the photo 2770079-2


We ordered lavender napkins for the head table to dress it up but I don't think the napkins will save this atrocity haha. Maybe silver floor length pintuck linens like you said?


Do you think it's okay to see the gap between the different tables if you don't have skirting like this:


Thanks for all the photo 2770079-3

Your venue looks so pretty! :) To be honest, im not a big fan of the skirt, but if you are getting other linens for it, just ask if they are floor length. If you are already getting lavender napkins for your head table, why dont you just get the same lavender linens for the head table as well and just add an overlay so itll stand out? or maybe change the flower colors? Just an idea :) But I think the silver linen would look just as pretty too..Let me know what you decide! Either way, Im sure itll look beautiful!

My bridesmaid actually did these for me so Im not exactly sure how she did it, but I believe she found an image she liked and she put it all together using a program. Maybe if you google "retro couples, marriage, wedding" an image may pop up that you like. HTH!
