The Details

All in the Details

There is much to consider when planning the perfect wedding. From invitations and bouquets, to music, dancing and cocktails, no detail can be left unattended. With all the crazy things 2020 had thrown our way, we noticed some fresh and exciting trends paving their way in the wedding industry.



When considering the guest list and venue for your wedding its equally important to consider transportation for your guests and the bridal party. Travel to and from your venues with the wedding party in lovely and unique classic cars, buses or trollies. Between Atlanta and the Augusta area there are many luxury and vintage vehicle renting companies that can accommodate any size bridal party.

Looking the other direction, if you find your dream venue across the state lines, Lowcountry Valet in North Charleston has a wide range of vintage buses and vehicles that can add more flare to your special day. From their 1950s Bespoke Supercoach, Lucy, to their 1949 Desoto Convertible, Betty, these classics will definitely add a timeless feel to your wedding. After a long day of beautiful celebration, drive off together in a unique vintage vehicle that is sure to wow all your guests.



Table or seating arrangements are an important part of the reception to ensure comfortable conversation. To add a bit more personalization to your wedding, a customizable antique mirror or glass dome can be used to list the guest seating chart. Typically, the mirror or glass dome can be customized down to the font style and color, with any additional embellishments or monogramming preferred. You can find a wide range of merchants selling custom seating charts online. If you’ve found your own perfect mirror or glass dome, many online sellers can create custom seating chart decals that you can then put on yourself.

For a unique seating idea that’s perfect for an outdoor or rustic themed wedding, hanging bed swings can give a cozy and elegantly casual feel depending on how you decide to accent it. Add an eye-catching spot for beautiful guest or bride and groom photos to remember forever.


Invitations and Such

Wrapped up much like a small gift, invitation suites containing the save the date, response card, and their respective envelopes, gives friends and family a first glance into your wedding. BEK Designs’ acrylic – more commonly known as plexiglass – invitations can display your wedding details with your choice of beautifully colored, printed calligraphy and envelope.  Consider adding a custom monogram to further personalize your suites. Much different than the traditional paper printed wedding stationery, acrylic invitations give a unique modern feel while keeping the suites beautiful and elegant.
