Winning Winter Weddings

 In Budgeting & Financials, Wedding Tips & Trends from the LOLA Pros

Congratulations to Stephanie and Aaron Phillips who had a fabulous reception for 300 guests at the River East Art Center on January 17, 2009.

Colors and Lighting

Stephanie chose striking red gowns for her bridesmaids – but didn’t want to go overboard with the color red since it makes such a strong visual statement.  LOLA accented Steph’s chosen color with elegant texture layering of cream and gold in the linens and floral centerpieces then tied in the red with dramatic up-lighting to maximize the natural drama of the high ceilings in this modern loft-like venue.

Low Temperatures Outside = Max Savings Inside!

People are always asking us how we can save them money.  I have one word for you…  JANUARY.  Real savings come when we can negotiate pricing because a vendor wants more business.  Booking your event in the off-season is the #1 best way to get the most “bang” for your buck.  REAC rents for about $15K in Spring, Summer and Fall on a Saturday night.  We were able to negotiate the rental for a fraction of that cost and the atmosphere couldn’t have been more stunning.  Candles glitter more warmly in the winter, receptions seem more cozy, and guests aren’t torn between multiple event invitations on the same night. Many event related companies (including LOLA) offer discounts for planning an event this time of year.  Consider all the extra choices and perks you’ll be able to enjoy!
