It didn’t take long to decide on a glam wedding theme when our team was asked to plan the 2021 NACE Orlando Annual Wedding Meeting that took place last month. It was both fun and challenging to design and execute the perfect concept for this important wedding industry event! Today I’m sharing how we chose all of the stunning design elements to capture our vision of a glam wedding theme. Read on for the inside scoop!

CREATING A STUNNING GLAM WEDDING THEME

#1 - The Venue

The NACE team partnered with Bella Collina for this wedding industry meeting. As one of Central Florida’s most popular wedding venues, Bella Collina was an ideal location for this event! The venue’s elegance lends itself to a glam wedding theme, so that’s the direction we ultimately took with the event design. It was a pleasure working with the Bella Collina team on the event details. Everyone loved how it all turned out!

#2 - Floral & Design

I knew the first move I had to make once deciding on a glam wedding theme was picking the brain of talented Jesus Rodriguez with Raining Roses. I couldn’t have created the vision for the entire event if it weren’t for Raining Roses’ beautiful ideas and floral designs! Jesus suggested tying in crystal candelabras to highlight the chandeliers in the ballroom at Bella Collina, and I went for the classic, timeless wedding look of white floral with greenery. Raining Roses blew everyone away with four different centerpiece looks!

At the last minute, Jesus came up with an amazing idea to highlight the serpentine tables we added closer to the event date. This was one of my favorite details – adding pencil vases with single roses down the entire length of the tables. It was stunning, and oh-so glam!

#3 - Rentals & Decor

Bella Collina contributed beautiful champagne chairs and gold-beaded glass chargers for the dinner event. We drew inspiration from these metallic elements to enhance the glam wedding look. Adding in gold serpentine tables and Verona chairs from Orlando Wedding and Party Rentals gave the room an elegant, modern feel. Specialty tables are such a fun way to break up an event space and create an eye-catching tablescape. The attendees couldn’t stop talking about them!

#4 - Linens

To pull the champagne and gold metallic tones together, I chose the Verdigris linen from Over the Top for the reception tables. This unique linen features splashes of both colors with a soft blue undertone. Paired with gold napkins, everything tied together quite nicely!

For the cocktail hour, Over the Top suggested a classic navy Lamour linen with a gold sash to tie off the tables and enhance the glam wedding look we were going for. Perfect for a meeting of wedding professionals!

#5 - Lighting & Sound

Partners in Sound provided the A/V services and sound equipment needed for our company president, Susan Southerland, to give her presentation during the event. They were gracious enough to also sponsor the textured lighting in the space. It illuminated the ballroom and created a “wow” factor as the guests entered the room. I thought it was the perfect way to highlight the glam wedding look!

#6 - Stationery & Signage

Paper Goat Post created beautiful menus that we set at each place setting. Details like menus, place cards, and other signage designed by a professional stationer always add an extra glam touch to an event! Paper Goat Post also created the event marketing with digital files, which would be great for couples who want to add special details to their wedding websites.

#7 - Music & Entertainment

Guests were welcomed to the NACE meeting by the melodic sounds of Christine MacPhail playing her harp and Jennie Rudberg partnering on the violin. It created a welcoming atmosphere as guests arrived to enjoy the cocktail hour. And you can’t get much more “glam wedding” than having harp and violin music!

Once guests transitioned to the dinner portion of the event, Our DJ Rocks kept the party going all throughout the evening with their music and announcements. They always keep an event lively!

#8 - Capturing All the Glam

We were so excited to have our friends from KMD Photo and Film there to capture all the details before and during the event! We knew they would photograph the entire event beautifully and capture the glam wedding vibe we wanted to share with our industry partners. The images turned out amazing, just as we knew they would!

Laiacona Photography and Design took video of the event. They filmed some NACE insider scoops from the members, which is so fun and helpful. We know the video will be a fun way to look back on the event and enjoy it all over again!
