Purple and yellow wedding decoration

This wedding that my team and I decorated for, the brides colors were Victorian Lilac, Gray with a touch of yellow.  The wedding ceremony and reception were inside a church gymnasium.  So the purpose was to convert this space into a reception center.

The pictures don't really give the room the justice it deserves, things always look better in person. However, check them out anyway.

Above is the new lighted ruffle table I designed.  If you remember a few weeks back, I showed a picture of a wedding that a ruffle table was used and I said I was planning on making it my own.
Well, in doing so I decided to give it a lighted puffy cloud look instead.  So not only is the table underneath lighted up, but the top of the table under the ruffles is also lighted up.
Personally, this is one of my favorite newer creations.  What do you think about it?

The backdrop for the ceremony, we used my Roman Pillars with greenery.  We added purple and yellow flowers on the pillars as well.  Personally, the yellow really was the perfect final touch.  You can't really see them well in the pictures, but if you were within 10-15 feet they stood out perfectly.

The backdrop we used for the cake table, was similar to the ceremony backdrop.  Same 4 pillars, except we didn't want them to be identical.  I wanted them to match each other, but I didn't want them to be exact as they both served different purposes.  So for the cake area we went with the Victoria Lilac satin swags across the top, and did a more simple centerpiece, so that nothing would take the focus away from the cake.

The rest of the room was filled with tables and other lighted decor.  We used white base linens, with Victorian lilac overlays.  Then Victorian lilac on gray runners.
The centerpieces we used lighted black lanterns, these are about 18" in height.  So the perfect height that you can still talk over them and see around them.

We places purple, white and a touch of yellow flowers around the bases, and laced them with two different sizes of pearls.
The black lanterns actually lit up and we used fake flicker candles inside of them to give them a little bit of romantic ambiance.
Last, the centerpieces were placed on large round mirrors.  For a couple of reasons, but mainly so the light from the centerpieces would reflect off of them more.

Between the ceremony and cake backdrops, we actually placed a stone fountain and lighted greenery area.  This wasn't created to draw the eye too much.  Mainly I just did this to tie in the area between the two backdrops so they wouldn't start and stop at awkward places with a weird space between them.

Because I really liked the way it looked, here is one more shot of the beautiful new cake table.

2014 Wedding Trends

What has been trending this year in Utah for weddings?  
We will give you a little insight into what we have been seeing from bride's, that may help give you a few idea's for your own wedding or reception.


Pinks...  Light pink, fuchsia, corals to peaches.
Purples in various shades.  From lavender to eggplant and everything in-between.  Using a monochromatic color scheme this year have turned out some beautiful and elegant wedding looks.

Indoor weddings have been going with more of the lighter shades in colors this year.
Outdoor weddings have been gearing toward bright and fun to dramatic and bold colors.


Cake decorators are getting more and more creative, and new styles from elegant to sparkling glitter are in. The cake has now become the 2nd best (of course you are #1) focal point at your wedding/reception.
Which is why at Simply Enchanting, LLC we have come up with a new fun way to give your cake the extra emphasis it deserves, without over shining the cake itself.
Pictured is our new glowing ruffle cake table.
If your doing it yourself, try dressing up your cake table a bit, but making sure you are not going too overboard so that the cake is what draws peoples attention, the table and surrounding decor should be used to draw attention to the area, but still keeping the cake as the focal point.


Rustic and natural looks have been the most popular themes for outdoor weddings.  Using nature and it's surroundings.  Bringing in woodsy backdrops, or garland and ivy wrapped arches.

Elegant with beautiful lighting have been the most popular indoor themes this year.  Our white backdrops, with lots of lighting have been the most popular so far, throwing in hints of color.


Here are a few questions we have been getting from bride's this year, possibly their questions may be your own to.  I've also supplied the answers that we have been using.

Q- I want to use several colors in my wedding, how can I do this without it looking like a circus.
A- Pick one or two main colors that will flow the best together.  Then use all your other color choices in your flowers, and the tiny accent areas.

Q- I have a small budget, but I still want a beautiful and elegant look that makes me look like I spent more than I did.
A - Spend your money on linen's, chair covers and sashes.  If the chairs you are using are already decorative or fancy banquet, then just a simple sash could dress them up.
Additionally, consider having your wedding/reception in a smaller building or outdoors.  Some churches allow day use for free and you can hire wedding companies like ours to come in and turn it into a reception center for a fraction of the price that a reception center would charge.
Additionally, if you start cleaning up yours or your parents yard now, plant flowers and plants.  By the end of summer you will have a beautiful yard and you can probably get by with a simple arch for your backdrop.

Q- I want an outdoor wedding and I don't have a yard big enough for it and I am on a budget.
A- I'll give you two options to consider.  First, did you know most public parks rent their facilities out by full and half day increments?  You can pick a part of the park that is off to a corner, or on the side of a mountain or hill. The only downside is, these are public area's, but most people have been respectful from what we have seen, and we haven't seen any major wedding crashers:)
Second, do you know someone who does have a large yard that would work?  Consider asking them if you could use it.  You could even make a deal with them, that you will come by weekly and weed the gardens, maybe offer to plant a few plants in area's that need it (you'd flip the bill on it.)  If you really want to help work this out, offer to come by and mow the lawn weekly.
This will help you get their yard ready for your wedding.  Then it gives them something out of the deal, by getting you as a free gardener for a while:)  But if you do this, make sure you clean up after the wedding that same night or early the next morning so they don't have to wake up to a mess and have to do any clean up in their yard after.

Sapphire Blue & Turquoise Wedding

The bride's colors for this wedding were sapphire blue and turquoise.

Above is the backdrop we used for the ceremony.  We used the lattice behind it to hide a part of the wall that we didn't want to be front and center for the couple.
The brides colors were Sapphire Blue and turquoise, although I only tied in Sapphire Blue into the backdrop, to not over do it on blues.

The next picture is yes the same backdrop.  However, we moved it into an open atrium in the hotel.  Because of this we didn't include the lattice.  It is basically the same backdrop with a few modifications to fit the new room.

It was a beautiful atrium, so I decided it didn't need much, so we went with a classy simple yet elegant look to everything.

We used Sapphire Blue runners, with mirrors, and then every other table either had 2 or 3 glass vases that were filled with different types textures of colors.

The above is just another view of the room.

Some with the rock look, others with the crushed ice look.

Like I said above, simple yet elegant.  Sometimes when you are dealing with rooms of large grandeur, less is more and small elegant touches show bigger statements than huge items that can take away from a finished look.

Just another view of the room.

And another view.  I should have grabbed a better shot, but this was actually a huge waterfall and colored water display, lights in the wedding colors.
