Styling tips

Black Twine shares its top tips for pulling off this event.

Tip 1

Serve a signature cocktail to get the party started – we love this simple combination of Pomp & Whimsy’s gin with champagne from One Hope.

Tip 2

Serve bite-sized desserts that are finger friendly and won’t disrupt the try-on process – such as little heart cookies that say “I Do Crew”, “Team Bride”, and “Team Groom”, tiny parfaits, and mini eclairs.

Tip 3

Treat your tribe to some pampering that they can take home as a gift. We love Birdies slippers for comfort and fashion.

Tip 4

Use a romantic color scheme with shades of blush and greenery to create a natural motif with florals and simple linen napkins.

Tip 5

If possible, host the party in a space with both outside and inside elements – so you can see how the dresses will look in different lighting.

Tip 6

Tabletop rentals can be a cost savings if you are looking for plates and glasses to match your motif, but don’t want to add them to your permanent collection.
