I was thrilled when my first call for a wedding rental came in not too long after I had Dish It Out up and running. The call came from the mother of the bride. Her daughter had most of her wedding planned, and knew she wanted a vintage feel. The bride spoke to her mom about wanting vintage plates for her reception tables. They weighed the options of buying vs. renting and knew renting was the better choice for them.
I spoke with the bride and with her mother to get an idea of the look the bride wanted at her reception. The sweet Southern bride wanted very vintage style plates and she liked florals. She was open to some mixes of blues and reds and swooned over plates with a scalloped edge. I just loved her!
I had a great time hand selecting all 175 dinner plates for the bride. I pulled out lots of Limoges, Spode, Haviland, and some Noritake getting as many different patterns in, but sticking with the style the bride was hoping for. Two goblets and two Haviland moss rose scalloped edge plates were set apart for the Sweetheart table. Each plate was given a wipe down and carefully packed for a pick up.
The bride and her mom came by to pick the plates up. I waved a good bye to the plates as they went off to grace the tables at The Ribault Club in Jacksonville, FL.
I was over the moon when the mother of the bride sent me pictures of the reception tables. The plates looked amazing on the tables at The Ribault Club mixed in with the lovely florals of LDD Events.
Loved being a part of this very special day!
