A Wedding At Tiffany's by Jenny Chang

There has never been a more iconic & synonymous company with Weddings & Proposals as "Tiffany & Co."

During that special evening, when you feel the anticipation rising & he slowly falls to one knee every woman wanted to see BLUE! (Tiffany Blue to be specific!) It may very well be every woman's dream to at some point in their life receive a Tiffany Blue box with a little something special for them inside. Whether that is an engagement ring or a personalized necklace, Tiffany's is Tiffany's! Although, when we hear Brides who say they've always envisioned a Tiffany & Co. wedding we quickly realize it may not be as simple as re-imagining an iconic movie!

When you think of Tiffany & Co., you can't help but imagine the great Audrey Hepburn! When Brides come to us with the inspiration of "Breakfast at Tiffany's" what they are really saying is, "I'm inspired by Audrey Hepburn". Who wouldn't be inspired by the fashionista of Hollywood's Golden Age? Recently, Dove Chocolate digitally re-created the late actress in a commercial that received major media coverage. If this does not show how current Hepburn's influence has remained in modern fashion, then I don't know what does. As a major Hollywood actress, Hepburn pushed a lot of Hollywood's fashion barriers, many which would seem minor in current trends, but her sass and beauty created the icon we know and love today!

Beyond her glamor & brilliant stage presence, Hepburn's wedding to Mel Ferrer showcases how seamlessly her inspiration translates into modern wedding design! We completely love and are as obsessed with the idea of a Hepburn inspired wedding as you are.

Is that a flower crown we see? Of course the fashionista was rocking the modern bridal floral crown circa 1954.

We found the P E R F E C T Audrey Hepburn inspired Bride & Groom couple & decided to create an inspired wedding board for those who can't stop seeing Tiffany Blue! (After this, we can't either!) Whether you decide to go with the Tiffany's theme (which our inspiration lends itself to) Or you decide to channel your inner Hepburn, we fully support you!

Our RNE PRO TIP: for channeling your inner Hepburn! Look thorough "Audrey Hepburn" on Pinterest. Not only in her younger years, but the woman slayed it throughout her entire career! Her sense of style & glamor is the best inspiration we can find!

Have fun being inspired & hope you start pinning these as much as we have!

And if you can't convince you future Mr. to go for the all-out theme? A Bridal Shower at Tiffany's is an easy fix! You can have so much fun with the pearls & glamor idea!

Designed With You In Mind by Jenny Chang

One of the first questions we ask our Brides & Grooms is:

"What is the  T H E M E  of your wedding?"

And we've heard it all....

Black & White, Love, Winter Wonderland, Christmas, Star Wars, Game of Thrones, Great Gatsby, Spring, Summer, Disney, Paris....

If you can dream it, we've probably heard it as a theme for a wedding.

And then we ask:

"What is your overall  V I S I O N  of your big day?"

So why would we ask seemingly the same question twice?

Because, there is a difference between having a theme and having a vision of your day! And ROCK N' EVENTS is all about distinguishing the two!

ROCK N' EVENTS Dictionary

Theme: An inspirational idea that can directly or indirectly influence the design of a wedding/event.

Vision: A clear/concise idea for the overall design, concept and details of a wedding/event.

When a Bride & Groom come to ROCK N' EVENTS with a theme we understand that means they have been inspired by an idea that can be crafted and personalized to fit them. Typically an excess of Pinterest is involved (which we love & fully support!) and the couple has fallen in love with the idea of implementing these details into their big day! These couples are very open to our design ideas and typically allow us to create a full design concept specifically for them.

When a Bride & Groom come to ROCK N' EVENTS with a vision of their big day, we know they mean design business. A couple with a vision already know exactly how they want to design their wedding and we, as designers, need to deliver this pre-envisioned wedding/event to the best of our ability. When working with a couples vision it is our job to translate this into realistic goals for their event and provide alternatives when our professional opinion is required. A vision also extends past the overall design of the event. A vision also includes the overall aesthetic, production and vibe of the day.

Think of it this way:

A theme is knowing which brand of car you'd like to buy.

A vision is knowing the car, the model, the color and even the number of cup holders you want! (you can never have too many cup holders!)

Or in Bridal Speak:

A Theme is knowing you want an ivory bridal gown.

A Vision is knowing you want the Maggie Sottero "Kennedy" bridal gown, from her Fall 2015 collection, in ivory, with an added cap sleeve and a cathedral length veil detailed with perfect lace appliqué around the edges. (Not that we've thought of this before...)

Now we don't want to sound like a vision is the overbearing parent to the traditional idea of having a wedding theme, but it's is the more detailed of the two.

One of our favorite moments during a consultation (after listening to the Proposal Story of course!) is hearing all the amazing ideas a couple has for their big day. We highly encourage an detailed theme when discussing weddings with our future Mr. & Mrs., but understand the difference when we have a couple with a specific vision. 

So whether you have the most detailed and vivid vision of your big day, or you just really love the color coral, never forget the most important detail in every wedding: You Two. The second most important aspect is having a coordinator who understands and respects your vision or inspiration! You can always count on the Rockstars at ROCK N' EVENTS to rock your design!

RNE PRO TIP"

When searching for your full-service or day-of coordinator, always remember to find someone who compliments your vision, not complicates it. Also, when meeting for an event or design consultation bring along any photos or inspirations you have to show your coordinator! Or just pull up your Pinterest!
