Here at The Jefferson, we feel there is something so elegant, classic and intimate about winter weddings in Washington, DC. The holiday decorations throughout the hotel add a touch of magic to any setting, and we love how the spirit of the holidays are woven through the hotel.
Our Catering & Conference Services team’s forte is creating unique and personalized ceremonies and receptions tailored to each and every couple. We were able to sit down once again with Meagan Stroud, Catering & Conference Services Manager, to chat about another wedding trend our team is loving right now.
What is your favorite wedding trend of the moment?
MS: Floral runners!
What makes them so great?
MS: With winter approaching us, it’s a great way to bring the feeling of a garden wedding indoors and add a lot of life and color to the table.
How would you recommend creating a runner?
MS: There are two different ways to create a runner that I’ve seen work really well. You can alternate large rectangular vases and small square vases down the center of the table, to create a runner look that’s simple and quick to assemble on the table. You can also have fewer rectangular arrangements with more space between them and add large leaves or other greenery to connect them together. It’s important to work with your florist and catering manager to order the right length for your table size. Both styles look great with a lot of small candles on either side of the runner.
We agree with Meagan, this is a wonderful way to incorporate the ambiance of a garden wedding into your winter nuptials! For more information on planning your wedding or private event at The Jefferson please contact Meagan Stroud at 202-448-3253, or MJ Carbone at 202-448-3259.
