For this recent wedding at Cantley House Hotel (@cantleyhotel) the bride wanted a simple, yet elegant look for her Wedding Breakfast. She chose the white crystal organza sashes from our extensive range of sashes. We then used these to dress the chairs, tying them directly on to the Chiavari chairs. The bride wanted her sashes to be tied in a way that would make her wedding unique. After showing her the variety of different tying styles that we have developed over the years, the bride decided to have the sashes tied on the side of the chair. We worked closely with the florist, Emma Curtis Flowers (@ecflowersuk) who completed the look by tucking a single red Gerbera into each sash. The overall result was stunning.
Following the wedding we received this lovely message from the bride’s mum:
Just a little note to thank you for the lovely job you did for us on Saturday.
The sideways sashes were so perfect I couldn’t have wished for more. Such a good idea and you were so helpful and patient with me! The flowers just made it all magical.
I am sending a photo of my daughter as she was such a happy bride and appreciated every aspect of her day and all the hard work everyone put in.
All brides deserve to have the personal, attentive and expert service you provide.
For this intimate wedding at The Vineyard Hotel, near Newbury (@VineyardNewbury) the bride went about things slightly differently. Rather than choosing sashes to co-ordinate with her bridesmaid’s dress and flowers, she chose her favourite colour for the sashes then matched everything to that colour. We dressed the chairs with our perfect fit white chair covers and then used our teal silk sashes tied in our Butterfly Bow style. The guests’ chairs all had diamanté buckles on their sashes to add a bit of sparkle. The diamanté buckles complemented the brooches on the front of both the bridesmaid’s dress and that of the flower girl. The chairs for the bride and groom had both teal sashes and ivory lace sashes tied in our Rose Knot with leaves style. The ivory lace was chosen by the bride because her dress was made of ivory lace. The bride chose to use our cream aisle runner rather than the traditional red carpet supplied by the hotel because she felt that it was better suited to her colour scheme.
The chairs were perfectly arranged making sure that were in straight lines and we used a tape measure to ensure that each row was the same distance apart. Our trained team spent time checking that all of the sashes were also perfectly straight. The sashes were all the same height on the chairs, and with all of the Butterfly Bows the same size and all of the tails the same length.
This wedding was given the same level of attention as all of our other weddings. However, there was one thing which made this wedding different from all of the others we have dressed; it was our own wedding! For a change we got to see the chairs with our chair covers and sashes on while they were being used. Usually we only have photos which show empty chairs, but this time we have photos of guests in the room and sitting on the chairs for both the Ceremony and the Wedding Breakfast afterwards.
Some of the photos of our wedding that we have used were taken by our photographer, Simon Kemp who captured our day perfectly using his wonderful story telling style. The photos are all very natural, showing everyone in a lovely relaxed way. With special thanks to Simon for giving us permission to use the photos. Other photos were captured by at least 4 cameras, hence the different lighting and colours.
For this delightful, intimate wedding at the L’Ortolan Restaurant (@lortolan) the bride chose this gorgeous purple for her chair and table decorations. The bride was able to look at the many different purple sashes that we have to offer, during her personal consultation. She chose this particular shade of purple because it was the perfect colour match with the ribbon on her favour boxes and place names. We added a bit of sparkle to the sashes with our diamanté buckles which complemented the design of the favour boxes. To complete the look the bride chose to have a coordinating table runner down the centre of the table. We made the custom length runner so that it fitted down the length of the table exactly. As part of our fitting service we always ensure that the sashes are perfectly straight and all the same height on the chairs. We also make sure that the chairs are perfectly aligned, in this case in a beautifully straight line along the length of the table.
For this wedding at Grovefield House Hotel (@GrovefieldHotel) the bride and groom chose these enchanting sage green sashes for their chairs. The couple decided to add an extra special touch to the chairs for the Top Table, so we tied the additional white sashes in our Rose Knot with leaves style. The couple had chosen the colour of their sashes and the tying styles during a personal consultation. This consultation enabled them to see our complete range of over 220 colours of sashes and try out different options, including the different tying styles, before they made their final decisions.
For this wedding at Cantley House Hotel (@cantleyhotel) the bride chose delightful aqua shimmer satin sashes for her chairs. From all of the sashes in our range this colour was exactly the right shade for the bride’s colour scheme. We tied the sashes using our pretty Rose Knot style. The florist supplied beautiful flowers in shades of ivory, peach and coral which complimented the aqua sashes perfectly.
For this wedding at Easthampstead Park (@easthampstead) the bride chose a wonderful coral satin for her decorations. The bride picked this particular shade from our extensive range of fabrics because it matched her colour scheme exactly. This vibrant coral was a perfect match for the bridesmaids’ dresses and the cravats worn by the groomsmen. We dressed the chairs with chair covers designed specifically for the chairs before tying the sashes in our Butterfly Bow style. The Top Table was decorated with Swags and Tails made from the same fabric as the chair sashes so everything matched perfectly.
If you would like your table decorations to co-ordinate with your chosen colour scheme, we can dress your tables with Swags & Tails made from the same fabric as your chair sashes.
Our Fitted Swags & Tails service includes professional fitting on site as well as all the clips, pins and additional sashes for tails required. All the Swags & Tails are custom made in coordinated fabrics and are available with our inclusive fitting service. The swags sections are made from the same fabric as the sashes and so coordinate perfectly.
Swags & Tails can be used to decorate Top Tables, as shown in the examples at the Aviator (@aviatorbytag), The White House (@PH_Hotels) and The Mill House. They can also be used to dress Cake Tables, as we did at Taplow House (@Taplow_House) and Monkey Island, or even the Registrar’s table for during the ceremony.
The Swags & Tails can be fitted using a single colour or by using a combination of colours so that they match the chosen colour scheme exactly.
For this attractive wedding at Grovefield House Hotel (@GrovefieldHotel) the bride chose these gorgeous aubergine silky satin sashes. The bride wanted this particular shade of purple because it was the exact match for her bridesmaids’ dresses. We dressed the chairs in our perfect fit stretch covers before tying the sashes in our Butterfly Bow style and then made sure that all of the sashes and the chairs were lined up beautifully. The lovely flowers supplied by the florist were made using the same colour so complemented the scheme very well.
When planning an event the use of colour can be so important. There are many different ways in which colour can be used and colour schemes are very unique to each client and each event. At Beau Events we have over 220 colours to choose from so the options available are endless. There is no need to choose just one colour for your chair sashes. We have dressed several events where a variety of colours have been chosen for the colour scheme. The following examples show some events at The Mill House Hotel and The Watermill Theatre (@WatermillTh) where different colours were used together with amazing results.
The first event was a wedding anniversary celebration where the sashes were several different bright shades of organza, tied in an alternating pattern around each table. These specific colours were chosen by the client to co-ordinate with the flowers on the tables. The flowers supplied by the florist were reminiscent of those used on the actual wedding day.
The second event was a wedding with a Disney Princess theme. The couple had great fun designing each table’s décor around the different Disney Princesses. We worked closely with the couple as they chose which sashes went with each Princess’ theme. Mulan had cerise pink, Jasmine from Aladdin had purple, The Little Mermaid had turquoise, Snow White had red and Aurora from Sleeping Beauty had pale pink.
The third event was a wedding where the couple chose their sash colours to co-ordinate with the different coloured antique vases they had collected. The couple grouped the vases together based on the main colours in their patterns. One table had vases which were mainly orange and another where they were mainly pink. The other colours used were green, light blue, brown and purple. In each case the sashes were carefully chosen from our range by the bride and groom so that they complemented the colour scheme for each table. The couple did their own flower arrangements cleverly matching them in to the colour scheme for each of the tables.
The last event was a birthday party where the client chose the coloured sashes which most closely matched the dress she was going to wear. We tied the sashes in an alternating pattern around each table. The birdcage centrepieces, supplied by the client, also contained flowers in each of the colours.
For this intimate 50th Birthday lunch in the glamorous Garden Room at Coworth Park (@CoworthParkUK), the client chose simply stunning white shimmer satin sashes for her chairs. The white sashes provide a beautiful contrast against the hotel’s own chair covers. The elegant look was completed with the gorgeous centrepieces supplied by the florist.
Our client has provided us with this feedback following the event:
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for the sashes, they were beautiful and exactly what I wanted! I was very emotional when I walked into the room, it couldn’t have been any more perfect and the highchair was so pretty!
Coworth Park said they would keep them all safely for you as normal.
Many thanks again for helping to make the day such a wonderful one.
