Details of Decor

Here are some more beautiful shots photographed by Match Studio You can kind of get a glimpse of the head table which literally looked like the couple were sitting in a cloud. Luxe silk fabrics were draped to perfection thanks to Renee and Joy of Amour Event Designs. Joy also set up a separate table where the bride and groom were seated so that they could view the Shiamak's Indo-Jazz Dance group on stage (wow that group has energy... the best part of that their dance performances is that they are interactive with audience participation). Most fun!!!

Just a quick note to DIY brides. To really add dimension to your decor add textured fabric. Look at the whites; you'll notice that it's white but there's a lot going on with the textures. Also notice the that the hints of blue are used subtly; the wine glasses, chair covers and blue gift boxes which had miniature Indian sweets (just the right size - kind of like the two bite brownies. These traditional indian sweets were custom ordered from Prabhu Sweets (based in Surrey BC). If you love Indian sweets you will also love their Ras Malai.

Okay back to the head head. Isn't it lovely: perfectly set for the guests of honor: the bride and groom (totally avoids dilemma of who should and should not be at the head table)! Keep it simple and keep it for two!

Here's a sample of the table setting. The stage that you see in the far back was used for the dance performances. Those beautiful blue sashes are available for rent through . DIY Brides save money and put the sashes on yourself. Rent them from Precious Moment Events.
