This wedding is long over due to be posted. Angela and Shane were so fun to work with! Great ideas, brilliant colors and a lot of DYI elements and touches. Lavender grown in their back yard was used to tie on the ceremony chairs. A tree that was cut from the yard of their new home was used as a wishing tree to hold wedding wishes from their guest.

SER was fortunate to be largely involved in their day. White Resin Chair Rental, Chair Cover Rental, Linen Rentals, Photo Booth and Day of Direction.

Mt. Princeton Wedding

Wedding Flowers Mt. Princeton Wedding Mt. Princeton Pavilion Chair Cover Rental

Another beautiful wedding at Mt. Princeton Hot Springs resort! Just outside of Nathrop Colorado. Settings Event Rental provided the ivory chair covers  and help make the bride and groom’s weekend stress free with our set up service.

Chair covers can really finish off the look for a wedding reception. We stock Ivory but can get them in several different colors. Chair covers are time consuming and can take up to 6 minutes a chair to properly iron and do the ties. Before buying and taking the chair covers right out of the package think about all the time it will take to set them up properly. Most brides would love to avoid ironing for hours on their wedding weekend.

The trend of the missing spoon.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

With the high of our bridal season about to start, we are often asked “Do I really need spoons?”

This question is typically with the need to save some money in the wedding budget. Brides will think about what they are serving and often times do not think they are necessary.

You may have not noticed it before now, but when you are out to eat the next time pay attention to the settings. Often time when the silverware is rolled there is not a spoon, even at some nice restaurants they have stopped setting them at the tables. This is in part for some cost saving measures, lack of spoon inventory, or problems rolling them into the napkins.

Think back at how many times you have been to a restaurant and went to reach for one and it was missing.

The missing spoon is not something new to me. Before my husband and I were married, I was setting the table at his parents’ house for brunch. Growing up we did not set all the silverware unless we needed it. This was before we had a dishwasher and with 6 people we avoided any extra hand washing we could. So I asked my future Mother-in-law if I should put out spoons. Her response was “Yes, just incase I want to stir my coffee.” The topic came up again last fall. We were in Boston talking about how many times we have people order dishware and just forks and knives from us. She talked about an article she had recently read and told us to start paying attention when we go out. So 2 nights later we were in the North End starting to enjoy appetizers and reached for the spoon to put marinara sauce on our plates and it was missing.

Think of your guest before you decide to leave the spoon out of your next event.

April & David’s Wedding – Salida SteamPlant

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

April & David had so many hidden and special touches to their wedding that only their closest friends and family knew about.

Putting the programs in bottles(the bottles for the guest to blow on the tops after they said “I DO”) and then in “Jane” David’s raft(who is named after his grandmother), canning jars from David’s mom, cake cutter from Aprils parent’s wedding, favorite winery Holy Cross from Canon City, table numbers(we loved them so much we bought them) and an Arch made by David’s Dad, pumpkin pie that David’s mom made from pumpkin his dad grew, pecan pie that David’s mom made, April’s favorite Apple Pie, the band were friends of the couple. These are just the few things that I knew about.

April’s brother had the BEST TOAST I’ve heard all season. He made you really feel like part of the family and know the “brother” side of how BL got to know his sister.

I was a busy day for Christopher and I. We not only did the Day of Coordination to make the day run smoothly and take all the worries and stress from Denise and April, we also did the chairs, napkins, china, silverware, photo booth, picture bookmarks.

Thank you Katja Deitz Wedding and Events for doing the planning, Rustingram-catering, Rise and Shine-Apple Pie, Salida SteamPlant-Venue, Riverside  Park-Ceremony, Palace Hotel-where the couple stayed
