Expert Advice

As a wedding professional, Vintage Patina offers expert advice to help couples plan their perfect day. Ask a question or read their expert advice.

There is a plain bluestone wall behind our bridal table. Does it really need something on it?

We are having a 150cm floral arrangement and LED candles along the bridal table so I am thinking that may be enough and if we put something on the wall it might look OTT. Thoughts?

That really depends on what the overall theme and concept you have for your wedding. If the bluestone wall goes well on its own with the entire aesthetic of your wedding, than no you don't need to do anything with it. Otherwise you can do a few floral installations or something edgy like a funky neon. If you would like us to have a look at it and give you some more informed opinion, get in touch, we'd be happy to chat to you about it.

What is the most popular wedding theme/style at the moment?

We're getting a lot of enquries about Boho style. It's a mix of different styles and you can taylor it to your personal taste. It's all about embracing the beauty of nature and natural elements but defintely not limited to it!

Dark or light colours for wedding motif?

I want to help my fiancee make wedding arrangements. She has assigned me to coming up with good colour motifs for our big day. I’m not really the artsy type of person so I need others’ opinions whether we should have dark or light colours. We’re having a June wedding, on the 20th to be exact. It’s our second anniversary after knowing each other in a meet foreign tours. I think she would want to match our motif with the season. If I’m not mistaken it’s a day before the official start of summer. Wouldn’t it be nice to welcome the summer with a wedding full of summer colours? There are dark colours for summer and there are light ones too. I don’t know which one to choose.

It really depends on the theme of the wedding and the colour palette of the day- bridal bouquet, bridemaids dresses etc. If you're going for a summer theme why not utilise some of those tropical colours- bright, vivacious colours with deep green tropical leaves. 

Or you can be more classical with creams and white, with pops of champagne and soft pink colours.

Who's responsible for the wishing well and the guest book at your reception?

Hi there,

It's always good to nominate someone you trust to take care of the wishing well and guest book. Either your parents, your future in laws or someone from the bridal party is generally in charge of collecting them and taking them home, so you don't need to worry about it at the end of your reception.

My wedding is next November at a Sydney venue, I have gotten a quote from their in house styling company however I feel as though for what I'm asking they have heightened the price! I'm looking for a company that do amazing work but are still affordable. Thank you
