Chic city wedding is the signature of this restaurant bridal editorial. Restaurant weddings can save a couple tons of time and planning plus provide amazing food opportunities. The key to restaurant weddings is searching for the perfect place that provides the ambiance and space you need. Are you Greek food enthusiasts? Garden patios your fav? Sophisticated or upscale New York your thing? Start searching your city for the amazing spot that will work for you and your guests. (Side Benefit? An excuse to eat out as it doubles as ‘tastings’!!)
This chic city wedding editorial was set in Burdock & Co. – a restaurant that features sustainable cuisine and naturalist wines. This lovely spot offers mood-setting intimacy with memorable farm-to-table fare perfect for an effortlessly elegant wedding reception.
Embodying rustic farmhouse charm, the city venue is already decor ready with locally reclaimed wood, vintage glassware and whitewashed brick. Adding white floral in glass showcases the beautiful vintage feel making it feel like a space out of time in a busy city.
The bride is gowned to fit the scene in a gorgeous white dress with lace overlay. The plunging neckline and back bring the sophistication. The bouquet is a handheld collection of white and grey toned greenery which is carried through all the bouquets in the room. Loose curls frame the bride’s natural makeup suiting the minimalist look.
Of course, the real hit of a wedding evening in this atmosphere is the food and drink! Oyster appetizers, signature drinks, unique tastings – the best part of restaurant wedding. Be sure to talk to your chefs and be specific on your favorite dishes. Would you like a specific theme to your cuisine? Perhaps you wish to have drinks in certain colours? We love the shot of pink used in this inspiration palette.
Celebrating your chic wedding day at a restaurant will leave a lasting impression on your guests – it’s unique and intimate. Your guests will toasting you all night long!
chic city pricing tips…
Be aware that some restaurants require you to ‘buy out’ the evening to the tune of what the restaurant might lost for shutting down for your event. However, shop carefully. Other restaurants have purposely set aside an evening a week for weddings or prefer to have a wedding than an evening of normal clientele. Don’t assume you have to pay an outrageous ‘buy out’ to have a restaurant wedding. Burdock & Co., featured in this editorial, actively seeks weddings – you will find restaurants who are looking for couples often have entire pages on their websites devoted to what they can offer. Upscale coffee shops that close early evenings are often thrilled to have events and allow you to bring in your own caterer. The best of both worlds! And this idea is incredible for showers, engagement parties etc.
