2016 was jam packed with showstopping events. So many that we have yet to put on our website. The florists, the planners, the venues, Wow just wow. We are so fortunate to work with the best of the best.
The Greater Detroit Chapter of NACE, the National Association for Catering & Events contacted our Team to design four tables utilizing the Pantone Colors of 2016: Rose Quartz & Serenity, around the theme of Winter. We teamed up with Bellisario Florists to give a winter wonderland of designs that were showstoppers.
Thank you sincerely to all of the Brides and Grooms of 2015 for putting their trust into our product and service. We celebrated the most wonderful 10 Year Anniversary in 2015 and it is worth it to know that our clients needs were exceeded. At LUXE, we know you have a choice….and we THANK YOU for choosing us.
Cheers to 2016!
Congratulations on your engagement! This is a special time in your life where you will be overwhelmed with excitement, and presumably stress as well. So many of your family and friends will have information, opinions and suggestions to pass along to you. Remember, this is the wedding of you and your fiance. Whether the wedding is in 6 months or 2 years, take a moment to breath and enjoy the planning process. We first suggest simply closing your eyes and picturing your wedding….what immediately jumps out in your vision? Is it color? Is it the flowers? Your dress? Write these details down before you let Pintrest guide your vision. If you draw a blank slate, then of course, head on over to Pintrest to see what catches your eye.
At LUXE, we want to hear what you envision….and then we can help make that happen. We specialize in the table details, but we have such a close relationship with Metro-Detroit’s finest professionals…we can help put your dream team together to make your dream come true. We have built a relationship with the most amazing event planners, florists, entertainers, bakers…you name it. We actually have special, private referral discounts that we pass onto our clients that the professionals have offered to us. They do this because they value working with a team of professionals that work together with one shared goal–perfection for your event.
We pride ourselves on our customer service and quality. We truly want to see your smile and have you walk out of our consultation with another service marked off your list so you can continue on your planning path and remembering to take it day by day, because before your know it……it will be your wedding day.
We hope to be a part of your special day,

Feeling your absolute best on your wedding day is crucial, so LUXE is here to give you the perfect timeline for a stress free morning for you and your bridesmaids.
Having your glam team travel to you is usually most convenient, but if you are traveling to the salon be sure to add on at least an extra hour.
First, start on the bride’s hair allowing 45-60 minutes. Have the bridesmaids alternate between hair and makeup following after, giving them about 30 minutes for each. Make sure the bride gets the last makeup scheduled appointment so the photographer can jump in for some ‘morning of’ photos. If you have a larger wedding party it might be in your best interest to ask the glam team to bring along assistants, to be sure everyone in the wedding party feels their best.
If you are worried about your hair or makeup going wrong, you might want to consider scheduling a trial appointment prior to your wedding day. This way you and your glam team know exactly what look you are going for.
The photographers should arrive 60-90min before the scheduled time of departure to capture details and special interactions happening throughout the morning. Before leaving for the ceremony, make sure you and your bridesmaids eat a little something and even consider having a small (or large) glass of champagne to take the nerves away.
Lastly, do not forget to smile this is your special day!
A sweet table is another great way to share all your favorite sweet treats with your wedding guests. Some couples are even opting out of a wedding cake and putting the money towards a fabulous sweet table!
A sweet table can consist of a number of yummy treats including candy, cookies, cupcakes, cake pops and so much more. Sweet tables are all about the presentation and creating a table that enhances your wedding theme. Start by purchasing various different shapes and size plates and vases to give the table height and uniqueness. Be sure to include a matching table linen and centerpiece that compliments your guest tables.
Remember the sweet table does not have to include a huge quantity for every guest; try to pick a wide variety of treats with a smaller quantity of each. The idea of the sweet table is for guests to grab a quick treat, not to indulge!
Deciding to create a wedding hashtag for your wedding guests can be challenging and might be the last thing you are worried about when wedding planning. LUXE is here to tell you all the reasons why the wedding hashtag is a must for your big day!
As we know, wedding guests love to Tweet and Instagram photos of all the amazing moments happening throughout the ceremony and reception. The hashtag is the perfect opportunity for the bride and groom to look at their guests pictures all in one place.
It is important to use a hashtag that grabs your guest’s attention and makes them eager to participate in the wedding hashtag. First, start by using both the bride and grooms names and always include the date. Each time be sure to capitalize the first letter of each name so the hashtag is easy to read.
Be sure to be consistent with your wedding hashtag on all platforms of your wedding. Don’t be afraid to include your wedding hashtag on your shower, bachelor and bachelorette invitations. Hold off on printing your hashtag on your wedding invitations, instead print the hashtag on your menu card for the reception. Another way to remind guests to use the wedding hashtag at the reception is to make a creative illusion placed on the card table or even by your photo booth if you have one!
The wedding hashtag is getting great reviews this season, so be sure to add it to your wedding to do list. Don’t be afraid if you forget to include the hashtag on your Tweet or post on Instagram, users can always go back and add the hashtag to join in on the fun!
Mirror accents are everything this wedding season. Mirrored accents are dramatic and elegant, adding just the right amount of shimmer to your guest tables. Here at LUXE, our favorite mirrored inspired looks are the mirror table runners or complete mirrored tabletops. Mirror table accents can even be an affordable way to jazz up your wedding. A small mirrored accent placed under low centerpiece arrangements creates the perfect illusion, while giving your wedding a modern touch. Mirrored inspired looks can even be used to display your seating chart! Call us today to start designing your mirrored inspired wedding!
We love when brides are willing to be different and express their trendy side on their wedding day. This season’s hottest trends are big, bold and bring out a new side to wedding receptions. The top three wedding trends of the season are Sequin Linens, Black and White Striped Linens and Garden Themed Weddings.
Sequin Linens is a must this wedding season, giving your wedding a unique couture feeling. Sequin Linens are a different way to dress up your wedding versus adding more elaborate centerpieces or more lighting. Our favorite is mixing and matching sequin linens with our most popular satin or matte linens for just the right amount of glitz on your wedding day.
Black and White Striped Linens is our boldest statement this season and we cannot get enough! Black and White Striped Linens are paired perfectly with a colored napkin for just the right pop of color. Black and White Striped Linens come in all sizes including table runners!
Having a wedding in your garden might not be realistic but bringing the Garden Theme to your reception is a top trend this season. Earthy toned linens combined with Mahogany or Gold Resin Chiavari Chairs, with a touch of leafy green flowers brings an enchanting, earthy feel to your reception.
Contact us to set up an appointment to bring your trendiest ideas to life. Happy Wedding Season!
Visit our booth at Bridal University Detroit at Ford Field on Sunday, February 8th! Doors open at 12pm. We will be showcasing all of our newest and most inspirational designs for every bride planning the wedding of their dreams.
December 7, 2014 at The Venetian in Madison Heights, MI a baby shower out of the ordinary had taken place. Baby showers happen weekly for many people however, a baby shower to this extent was something that was spectacular to see. The amount of detail the owners of LUXE and the client had put into it made this common event something that was unique and made it a little less common than your typical baby shower.
This winter wonderland theme for a baby boy was filled with many details that pulled the whole “look” together. With a beautiful, vibrant blue and stunning silver being the main colors this made the room sparkle and look magical. Our silver resin chiavari chairs were a statement piece for the event. Alone, those chairs are beautiful however; the ladies added a beautiful blue sash that was weaved through the rungs of the chairs to give it a different look.
Throughout the entire room there were touches of winter and sparkle. Each chair had a snowflake on them and each table had a wonderful centerpiece filled with hydrangeas and various Christmas ordainments that fit with the color story of blue and silver. Everywhere you looked there was a touch of sparkle. The perfectly set table with silver charger plates and matte blue satin napkins were tied together by a sparkly snowflake that served as a napkin ring.
The up lighting and draping tied the whole look and room together with the feel that was desired for the shower. This event was nothing short of amazing and intriguing to look at and be a part of. The amount of detail, time and effort put into this shows everyone that the people who were involved in this project honestly love what they do. The little details are truly what make events even more special and this event had many small, special details to help tie this whole winter wonderland baby shower together.

1920’s Trend for this Summer
With the release of the Great Gatsby this past Friday in theaters the trend of art deco, gold, pearls, silk and feathers is in full swing. We are in love with the glitz and the glamour that was seen in the movie. The Great Gatsby has always been a classic but the sparkle has been taken to a new extreme, which we LOVE!
We recommend adding in touches of gold, glitz, sequins and pearls to your center pieces and linens. Our linens from Luxe Event Linen can help you achieve the classy feel your looking for. We have a variety of luxurious linens in multitudes of colors for you to choose from for your wedding or event.
