Real Weddings: Alice in Wonderland

We're overjoyed when a bride and groom comes to us with out-of-the-box wedding ideas.  The Alice in Wonderland themed wedding desired by our nontraditional couple, was fun and eccentric.  Our bride and groom envisioned a wedding immersed with whimsical decor, bright colors, and fresh florals.  Your Event Solution created a surreal experience for our newly married couple and their guests!

Event Design Inspiration: What Unusual Things Inspire You?

A few days ago one of our team member's visited the local farmers market to grab a few things for dinner.  Not only did she leave with ingredients for a tasty meal, but also inspiration for future event design projects.  This is testament of how inspiration can stream from anywhere!  When we meet with our clients to discuss their ideas for their special events, sources of inspiration are always revealed.  Everything from a quilt dressed on the bed of a bride's best friend to a party scene from a client's favorite movie,  has served as a source of inspiration for past events that YES has designed.  In this case,  a few unusual fruit and vegetables aroused our creative appetite.

Modern Atlanta 2011 is a Must Attend Event for Creative Designers

We're always happy when organizations bring BOLD events to Atlanta, such as Modern Atlanta 2011 DESIGN IS HUMAN. Modern Atlanta (MA) has planned a week of celebratory events highlighting the art of cutting-edge design and the HUMAN connection associated with it. MA was created to explore an array of disciplines of individuals and businesses that offer products and services inspired by innovative design. MA's primary focus is to bring attention to products and services from a variety of scopes, such as architecture, event, fashion, and interior design (just to name a few) that commonly promote and inspire social responsibility with their forward-thinking practices. This week is for individuals in any specialty that appreciates creative, innovative influences and developments. MA has a diverse group of activities planned through June 12, 2011, that will bring together a versatile congregation of individuals and ground-breaking ideas.

Alternatives to the Tangled Themed Sky Lanterns

Disney's Tangled is a favorite amongst  kids of all ages, parents, and even brides! YES has received several requests from brides-to-be looking to incorporate the ever so popular sky lanterns from the movie sensation into their wedding day. This decor element, also known as wish lanterns, are paper lanterns that contain a small candle, which once lit, heats the air in the lantern and causes it to rise. Although very beautiful when they are illuminated in the sky, we're not  huge fans of the sky lanterns because of their potential environmental hazards. We love to accommodate our brides with their requests, so here are a few alternatives that we suggest that are just as effective and charming as the release of the sky lanterns.
