When I think of having my own wedding someday, I imagine everything I want coming true and having every little detail perfect. Some may not realize what it takes to put together a wedding. Planning and critiquing are the constant roles of pulling off a great wedding.
I sat down among a table of experts recently at the beautiful Biltmore Ballrooms in Atlanta. It was the “round table” of wedding planning. Everything the bride wanted was mapped out and laying in front of us on the table all compacted into two sheets of paper.
Watching and listening to all of the comments at the round table-the experts putting final touches on the wedding details. I realized that I had no idea how technical planning a wedding can be. Realizing that a “walk through” is a must; I was praising the experts surrounding me on their impeccable execution of the details-down to the lighting, which I found amusing.
Pale blue for the accent lighting with a sun-lit room is not the best option no matter what colors there are to match it. It was agreed that pale blue lighting would make people look more like the dead rather than the “alive” atmosphere that should be present at a wedding.
Instead, the experts all agreed that an amber lighting scheme is the best fit to give life and ambience one would expect at a wedding. Who knew that just the lighting could throw a curve ball in wedding planning? To every bride out there planning her wedding, I hope there is a roundtable of experts to “walk-through” all of the details, because I know at my wedding I will definitely be thinking about something blue, but not the something blue a bride is usually thinking about.
