Pro Tip Thursday

Welcome to
Pro Tip Thursday
This week we are featuring one of our favorite Linen Vendors...
Stacey Waters with Connie Duglin
with Professional Linen Advice:

"Whether it is a hot elaborate overlay or a simple, white floor length linen, your table and chair coverings can speak volumes about your “wedding or event personality”. Linens can also project the vibe and atmosphere you want your guests to experience throughout your special occasion. They are available in many different styles, colors and fabrics and the possibilities are endless. Connie Duglin makes a special effort to expand our inventory on a regular basis to reflect the ever changing trends in the special events industry. From vibrant, colorful weddings to simple elegant affairs, there are linens suited for you and your special event. Some of the fun fabrics like crinkle taffeta and eyelash pintuck can give a casual, laid back feel or attribute to an upscale ambiance depending on the color you choose along with the other accents in your space. The “buttons” material mimics that of a “pick up” style wedding gown and is beautiful as an elegant overlay for a cake or sweetheart table. The “confetti” fabric gives off a fun vibe with detached “confetti” that dangles in the wind on outdoor cocktail tables. Our new Champagne confetti gives the modern, carefree fabric a sophisticated twist.

Many times, the linens reflect patterns, colors or designs that may be seen somewhere else during the event. Sometimes it may be the dress pattern as in the buttons, or the metro print may play off the cake design and the sash color may match the bridesmaid’s dresses. Wherever that similarity may be, is great to see a sense of continuity and thoughtfulness when looking at all elements of the event design. Enjoy the planning process and don’t forget to enjoy it. There is so much to take in and consider and sometimes it is easy to get lost in it. Embrace all of the options and possibilities and make it yours!"
