Makeover Monday-Holdenrid Wedding at Holiday Inn

Who says Spring Weddings always have to be in pastels?! Buck tradition and be fearless by showing off your glam side! Our featured bride; Kim Holdenrid did just that, and absolutely nailed it with this stunning wedding at the Holiday Inn in East Peoria!

Tip: Distinguish your wedding with touches of personalized items such as the customized plating displayed at this head table. The shiny metal chargers and the sequin linens also gave it an instant elegance!

Tip: Double the bridesmaid bouquets as centerpieces (flowers not yet pictured) so that you're not spending extra time & money trying to come up with a new design. Also; a cinched backdrop with uplighting is a perfect way to highlight everyone in the bridal party!

Tip: Your guests will need plenty of elbow room in order to dine & mingle comfortably. Try to resist the urge to take up precious real estate with random or overly grandiose décor. Work every piece with a purpose such as the bling framed table numbers, the silver mercury votives and the glass bowls featured above.

Tip: Consider a venue's architectural features while planning the décor. There's no way to work around a venue's carpeting, so it's best to work within it's color scheme instead of against it. This bride nailed it by pairing B&W striped runners against a neutral geometric carpet, which made the entire look appear seamless! 

Tip: Try not to box yourself in creatively. You & your beau may be donning crisp whites, but it doesn't mean that everything else has to be. Keep in mind; black chair covers are just as classy, and when it's adorned with a satin sash, it just oozes effortless sophistication!

Stay tuned for another featured favorite next week!

Happy Planning,
The I Do Crew
