Tablescape Thursday :: NC Wedding Planner

We have one more day leading to the most romantic day of the year. Today, it's all about the gentlemen!  The weather outside is pretty rough, and the well planned evening with dinner reservations, and even plans to pop "the question" may not happen.  What's a fella to do? Don't cancel that special day that you have spent so much time planning.  Instead, keep it simple, intimate, and romantic by bringing your plans to your home.   Set the atmosphere and create a table designed for two.  Always remember that candles are a great way to create that intimate atmosphere, so add a lot of candles.

Here are a few simple and elegant tablescapes that will inspire you.  Remember to hire a florist or have someone assist you in pulling off this look.  She will definitely be blown away, and you will most likely get a "yes" to that very important question!!

Whether it's on the beach or in the gardens under the gazebo, Antigua is a great location for your wedding getaway and honeymoon stay!

Check out these links to brides that had their weddings at Sandals Antigua  Here and Here.

Sandals Grande Antigua offers two beautiful villa suite options. The open landscape, grand piazzas and classical styling of the Mediterranean Village contrast with the lush green canopy, low-lying villas and diverse flora of the Caribbean Grove.  Both resorts come with Butler services to anticipate your every need.

The first is The Rodovals of Eden (Caribbean Grove).  Nestled in the foliage, you can enjoy your garden private villa with your own plunge pool.



Next, is the Mediterranean Villa. Built into the mountainous landscape, the Mediterranean Village draws  inspiration from the plazas and palatial villas of Europe's coastal cities.



So, if you are starting to get the "Destination" bug for your wedding and/or honeymoon, consider Antigua is a perfect option for you!
