Jewel-Toned Bliss – Real Wedding

The Ballroom at ProvidenceG was the perfect blank canvas for an October wedding rich with deep, saturated hues.

Stephanie’s role in the wedding industry over the years had provided her with a wealth of inspiration — so when it came time to plan her own wedding she knew exactly what she wanted. “We picked decor that was in the jewel tone family, but I wanted there to be plenty of variety to keep the design interesting without focusing too much on everything being a perfect match,” Stephanie described.

Hunter green gowns combined with darkly rich bouquets made a statement against a creamy white backdrop.

Pops of golden yellow blooms added an unexpected splash of bright color to the mauve-filled floral arrangement.

Lush crimson blossoms paired with autumn greens and hints of fuchsia combined to create a mystical bouquet.

The views from the rooftop at ProvdinceG offered an iconic backdrop to capture the look of true love.

Plum table linen paired with magenta linen napkins, wooden chairs, and various jewel-toned flora were perfectly juxtaposed.

The Ballroom at ProvidenceG

A modern, light-filled ballroom with historical influences right in downtown Providence. The Ballroom at ProvidenceG offers a metro-glam vibe that is unmatched. Rebecca Miller, Director of Sales & Events at The Ballroom tells us more about this beautiful event space…

1. Tell us a bit about the history of the Ballroom at ProvidenceG.

The Ballroom was built back in the 1920’s and originally housed the Providence Gas Company. When our company bought the building to convert the space into an event facility, great care was taken to preserve many of the historic features. The gorgeous marble floors were restored, along with the intricate Greek key and dental molding adorning the high ceilings.

2. What services do you provide when a bride books their wedding?

We provide full venue coordination services and I personally assist each couple throughout the whole planning process. I help with vendor recommendations, venue logistics, custom floor plans, and any other questions or concerns that pop up before the wedding. If the couple is doing their ceremony on-site we also assist with the ceremony rehearsal and day of ceremony coordination. One of the best parts of a wedding here at the G is all of the unique venues that we offer within the building. They can do a cocktail hour up on our Rooftop with crystal fire pit lounges and a skyline view, a wedding after party downstairs in our GPub with pool tables, shuffle board, and air hockey, or a rehearsal dinner in our new restaurant Sarto which has a private mezzanine level for intimate gatherings. We can handle it all, making planning a breeze!

3. How far in advance to you recommend brides to book?

Most couples book a year or more in advance, and I do recommend that if they are set on a particular date. However, we are seeing a trend towards shorter engagements with couples booking 6 months or less in advance. If the couple is flexible with their dates they can often save quite a bit of money! We offer discounted rates on remaining dates within the 6 month window, and many other vendors do the same. This is a great way to be able to have your dream wedding at a venue that might otherwise have been out of the budget.

4. Do you have an exclusive or preferred vendor list? 

We do have a preferred vendor list — this is a list of industry professionals whom we know do a fantastic job and are familiar with our space. But we are open to work other wedding professionals as well! Our industry is constantly changing and adding fun new options for couples, so I think having an exclusive vendor list is just too limiting. I really want to help my couples bring their vision to life, even if it means stepping outside of the box.

What is one piece of advice you always give to brides?

Prioritize! I always tell my couples that booking the venue is the most important piece of the puzzle, not only for securing a date, but also because the space you choose and time of year will help guide your style and color choices.  Next, make a list of all the vendors you’ll need for the wedding and put them in order starting with what is most important to you. Do you both love music and absolutely have to have an amazing DJ or band? Perhaps you love good food so the meal has to be stellar? Do you dream of having hundreds of magazine worthy photos? Maybe having gorgeous floral arrangements and décor is most important to you? Then, work on booking vendors from the top of your list first. With weddings, everything ends up being a little bit more expensive than you think, so if you are working with a budget then this can help ensure you don’t end up having to compromise on what means the most to you!

Off-the-Shoulder Necklines 

The fear with an off-the-shoulder gown is that brides will not be comfortable on their wedding day, however, I saw a lot of functional off the shoulders that still give you a lot of wiggle room!

Capes

Capes are a great way to add drama and length to any gown and make a great alternative if you are not a fan of the iconic veil!

Appliquéd and Embellished Lace

I saw appliquéd floral lace (with and without embellishment) on almost every runway.  Adore this feminine trend!

Meghan Markle had a huge influence on this market.  Her reception dress led to halter necklines on every runway!

Matching Veils

One of the hot accessories of the season was the matching veil.  It was especially prevalent with the lace and floral appliquéd gowns.
