Keep it Simple/Go Big or Go Home / by Charley Gynn

Over the past few years there has been a growing trend in foliage heavy weddings and then with this years Pantone colour being green, the trend really has hit the floor running.  This weekend we took the idea of simple green foliages and pushed it to the extreme.  We kept all the details really clean and simple with clear glass bottles dotted down the centres of banquet style tables with white linen table cloths.  We placed white dinner candles in the tops of bottles filled with water and a simple stem of ruscus inside.  All very clean cut, not over crowded, simple but elegant.  The real star of the show however was the all foliage curtain we installed in the marque to create a divide between the dinning area and the dance floor.  The wall was an instant eye catcher as you walked into the space set in the beautiful Essex countryside.  The idea is simple in itself but created such an impact and had guests talking about it all evening.  Sometimes "Keep it Simple, Stupid" (as my husband always says) is most definitely what you should live by when planning a wedding or as I more often than not say "Go Big or Go Home"
