Tucson Wedding Vendor Spotlight: Frostings Event Design and Rentals
categories: Floral Inspiration, For Your Ceremony, Meet Our People, Reception ideas, Trends, Wedding Inspiration, Wedding Resources, What's Hot in Rentals

Event rental companies hold the key to your wedding decor dreams- the furniture, linens, draping, and all the other extra goodies they provide make a huge impact on the atmosphere of your wedding- and planning your wedding in Tucson has never been better. The wedding vendors you have access to right here in Tucson are phenomenal and Elite Circle rental and design firm Frostings Event Design and Rentals is, without question, one of the very best you’ll ever work with.

Frostings recently moved into a huge showroom where you can see, touch, and “play wedding” with their rental and event supplies. We’ve worked with them for years and not only will you adore their selection of rental items, you’ll love their warm and helpful attitude. They’re true professionals and every event that makes an impression on us typically includes Frostings Event Design and Rentals as one of the vendors involved.

How is the new showroom different than the previous showroom? We ran our business for almost 7 years with no showroom, it was with the use of a virtual catalog and on site consultations that allowed us to take care of our clients… As we grew our inventory with more and more specialty rental items, we decided to enter the wedding market, and here we are, producing over 40 weddings a year!

In our new space you can see our collection of specialty rentals and décor, you can touch our furniture and fabric treatments, and play with natural florals; we can set up a mock-up for you to help you envision your special day and of course you can play with color and texture until you find the perfect look.

What are some of your most popular pieces? We are well known for our Lounge Furniture Rentals- our collection is the most varied in the Southwest with more colors, shapes, materials and styles than any other company and many of our pieces are one of a kind, designed by us, exclusively for the event industry. They are pieces that will enhance any space with beauty and functionality.

Also, our fabric treatments are unique to the rental market- designer fabrics help you create stages, backdrops, canopies and chuppahs; we carry many velvets, damasks, silks and satins; we also have sequin fabrics, embroidered and tri-dimensional panels, mirrored and diamond curtains…you name it, we can create any look, fulfill any dream.

We carry a new Couture linens collection that used to only be available in large cities but now, they are all here. These linens are beautiful and special- the perfect touch to highlight a sweetheart table or simply help create the most exclusive tabletops in Tucson.

What can a couple expect to see when they come to the showroom and what might surprise them? Our 10,000+ sqft 1920’s warehouse is an inspirational space with Tabletop and Lounge installations that change 4 times a year; while here, a couple will learn about the details that separate a typical celebration from one that has been planned with every detail in mind. They will get in touch with all of their senses: sight, touch, sound & taste…We offer the perfect playground for couples to reflect on their personalities and how they want to show them on the day of their wedding. Our endless possibilities ensure that their special day will be memorable.

What are some new event rental trends that you’re excited about? Our favorite event design trends include: Decorative lighting and tables with no tablecloths; the use of furniture and lighting fixtures for a more residential feel; unusual containers for candles and floral arrangements, asymmetry and the use of unique pieces, textures and colors when designing an event; transitioning your guests through different environments for a more dramatic experience.

Ceremony and Reception Venue: Tanque Verde Guest Ranch :: Invitations: Perfectly Planned by Candida
Blogthinline
Lisa and Taylor are a couple who loves to be outdoors as much as possible (she tells us they love being outside and wearing boots and jeans all the time- camping dates complete with horseback/dirt bike/ATV riding and cuddling by the fire are not uncommon) so enjoying the beautiful Tucson desert for their wedding was a given- the couple stayed with their out of town guests at Tanque Verde Guest Ranch the entire weekend and had a blast! 

3 words to describe their wedding: FUN, memorable, loving
Tucson Bride and Groom_Tucson wedding magazine_Real wedding_turquoise_Something Blue Photography_Lisa and Taylor (2)
Bridal party favors included teal silk robes, pearl bracelets, and totes (for cowboy boots) for the girls and engraved knives for the guys- perfect for Lisa and Taylor’s “Classy Country” wedding!
 
This is Taylor and Lisa adores him…Taylor is the man of my dreams and had the most memorable and sweetest proposal on a horseback ride…we waited 4 and half years to get married and live together and he was worth every second of the wait! Awwww.

The couple chose sunflowers and daisies for their floral designs and had many fun signs throughout the wedding ceremony and reception- all color coordinated of course!

Lisa shares her story about her walk down the aisle: My grandpa and my step-dad walked me down the aisle- my grandpa helped my mom raise me as she was a single mom and I spent every summer camping and fishing with him and my grandma…he has made me who I am today. Not only did my grandpa walk me down the aisle but he also purchased the wedding dress of my dreams! My step Dad, Steve, also walked me down the aisle- plainly put, he was my dad when he did not have to be and is a great one!

All the girls changed into cowboy boots after the ceremony, including the bride!

The wedding favors were horseshoes with tags that said “Our Gift to you…By placing this over the door, prong side up, may the horseshoe bring you luck, love and laughter. Thank you for sharing our special say with us . Love Taylor and Lisa”. The horseshoe served double duty- it was also used as an escort card with names and table numbers on the other side.

Burlap and teal runners with pops of yellow from the sunflowers made the tables pretty but not fussy- just like the bride and groom!

Erin and David enjoyed a lovely weekend at the historic and charming Hacienda del Sol Guest Ranch Resort where they entertained family and friends in true Tucson style- there were chats around fire pits and lively games of corn hole accompanied by Magpies Pizza (where the couple had their first date). You wouldn’t know it from the pictures but Erin and David are kind of shy! The bride tells us: We are both very reserved, quiet people. The nervousness that comes with the attention being all on us is something we both understand about each other. We really wanted our wedding to show who we were as a couple and to share the day with everyone we loved but actually having all eyes on us was pretty nerve wracking.
 
The yellow and red color palette came from the groom’s desire to honor his roots; Most of the wedding was actually designed around requests from David. I was happy to have a groom who was excited. His biggest request as the son of a Welshman was to wear a formal Welsh “St. David’s” tartan kilt which included a yellow daffodil boutonniere. I decided to use the daffodil yellow and the Welsh red as our main colors. Thus our color scheme was born.

The couple planned for an outdoor ceremony but had to go with plan B when an unexpected rainstorm hit the area. Like all couples should do on their wedding day, they “went with it” and ended up really liking the intimate atmosphere of the indoor ceremony.
 
Favorite memory from the day: David & I actually have the same favorite memory. It is when we said our vows. Our guests said in that moment there was a huge gust of wind, the storm suddenly kicked up outside, and the lights flickered. Neither David nor I noticed any of that. We were so focused on each other that everything else sort of fell away and it was just the two of us. That was an amazingly special moment that we will remember always.

Erin and David entertained guests with their version of the “Newlywed Game” found at each place setting and gifted CD’s that included songs that are most important to them including a recording of David’s proposal song, written and sung by David himself.

In 3 words, Erin and David described their wedding as eclectic, intimate, and authentic. How very true- the custom flowerboxes were made by a friend and included images of some of the couple’s favorite things while a surprise bagpipe band showed up at the reception just in time for the toasts- pretty fun, right?! The yellow ombre buttercream cake designed by Village Bakehouse was a showstopper!

Wedding Stationery: Save the Dates from A Fine Line Stationery & Gift Boutique
categories: Stuff We Love!, Wedding Inspiration

You may have recently gotten engaged (congrats!) so it’s the perfect time to consider the design of your save the dates and get them ordered. These clever “pre-invitations” serve as a place holder in your loved ones’ calendars and they’re especially important if you plan to have a destination wedding or think you’ll have many out of town guests.

Jeanne Dwan, owner of Elite Circle stationery shop A Fine Line Stationery & Gift Boutique, shared a new line of Save the Dates with us that are not only stylish but economical too:

Jeanne raves: Aren’t these a great style? I encourage brides to go as economical as possible on their save the date cards and save their budget for a nice invitation.  I especially love these because they look expensive but aren’t – lots of bang for the buck (these SUPER ECONOMICAL Save the Dates are under $150 for for 100 of them and they are a raised thermography print)!  

Many people love A Fine Line Stationery & Gift Boutique because of their custom stationery options- here are some examples of some other Save the Dates they’ve created:
