Groom’s Style by La Fete Weddings

This week we wanted to focus on our Grooms… What makes them excited? What do they think is stylish? What do they enjoy most about the wedding?  Each man is completely different when it comes to planning the wedding, but most groom’s get excited about these few things. When it comes to the groom’s style.

1) Grooms Fashion Accessories-

From Cufflinks, Bow Ties, Shoes, pocket squares to boutonnières! Check out some of our handsome grooms and their wedding day style:

2) The Cigar Bar & Lounge-

The Cigar Lounge is a new request among most of our grooms and we can completely understand why… We create a masculane atmosphere, comfy sofas and a fabulous selection of cigars from La Aroma de Havana, and sometimes bring in an expert to make suggestions, cut the ends of the cigars and light them for you! Now, I am not going to say that every bride loves this… because cigars are often VERY potent and the smell can be a bit overpowering. The cigar lounge can also have a separation effect. Sometimes we will see ALL of the ladies on the dance floor and the men are off enjoying their cigars. So if your goal is to keep everyone dancing to that fabulous band you paid for.. Then we suggest having your cigar bar & lounge at your after party. This way your can designate a section to the gentlemen that want to enjoy their cigars, and the ladies can have their own area as well.

3) The Martini Luge-

We have done a few of these over the past few years and they are ALWAYS a huge hit with the wedding guests! This year we had an adorable couple that we worked with and the groom’s one & only request was a dirty martini luge! The ice luge turned out beautifully and he was thrilled when he walked into the reception and saw it!

4) And finally, the one thing that separates the single from the married men- The Ring. Here is a collection of some of our favorite ring selections! When searching for the Groom’s ring, keep in mind that they should “go” together. Not only does that “ring shot” photo really stand out, the two of you should coordinate the styles in some way!

La Fete’s Annual Christmas Tea 2014 150 150 La Fete Weddings

Christmas Collage

When the weather starts to change in the fall, we begin dreaming up new ideas for how we will design our annual Christmas Tea. We find ourselves looking forward to this wonderful Christmas Season all year. This is a tradition we have continued since Kaitlin was around 6 years old, but over the past few years we have changed the way we do them. Five years ago we thought- “Why not turn this into a photo shoot opportunity?” So we started by decorating an elegant table & inviting our closest friends in the event industry. We love this chance to treat these wonderful  ladies to an afternoon that completely pampers them. We share our highlights from the year, along with goals we have for next year, and reflect on the ways that God has blessed our lives.

We always love any chance to design something completely different than a wedding & this time we were excited to work with such a rich color palette.  We were shopping in Palm Desert and found these fun silver taper candleholders shaped like antlers and right away we knew we wanted to create something rustic, but still glamourous, moody  and romantic. We chose the stunning Velvet linen in Wine from La Tavola along with Topaz Burgundy napkins and chair pads to keep the monochromatic look we were going for! We also adorned this insanely gorgeous chandelier with fresh sprigs of magnolia- Sending a special thank you to Lani from LBPS!! We always enjoy picking up fresh flowers and greens from Florabundance and arranging the flowers ourselves-This is one of our favorite parts! Thank you to Town and Country Event Rentals for supplying their rustic x-back chairs along with some of the lovely china & glassware!

We are so incredibly thankful for these gorgeous photos from Melissa Musgrove Photography– You always capture our Christmas Tea with such elegance and the group shot of all of us warms our heart! Thank you again!
