Venue: Noah's Event Center Mocksville

Let's just say for being located in an industrial park, Noah's is pretty cool!  I LOVE the chairs! No chair covers needed, I love the fact that they have ceiling options and that the floors are hard wood.  I love the bride and groom getting ready rooms!  The event area's are cute, but tight for both the ceremony and reception area.  I wouldn't put more than 150 guests in there, but the venue says 200+.  I prefer to have room for my wedding guests to walk between tables and make visiting and meeting new family members easy. The venue is pretty pricey, but then again, aren't they all! The difference here is it is well kept and has lots of little benefits!  Fitted for a more modern, contemporary type of couple.

Here are some photos for you!

Marbled Table Linens

I am so in love with these table linens!  Just think about how beautiful they would look on your reception tables!? We love new Trends at Behind The Scenes Inc, it makes each wedding so very unique and we pride ourselves on putting the energy of both the bride and the groom into their wedding decor and planning process!

Artful Dinner Services

  Artful Dinner

One of the things that I also do as a wedding planner is make sure that the food looks good and is served correctly. There is nothing like having someone throw down a pile of mess in front of you to eat - or having to get up and go through a buffet line to see piles of terrible looking food!

I see a lot of brides trying to short change this area and save money.  Saving money is always great EXCEPT when it comes to good food and service on your wedding day!  It is the biggest point of memory your guests will have.

Start with setting the table correctly.

Basic Table Setting

This is a basic table set up and very elegant. It is also very easy for wedding guests to understand.

Most importantly make sure the food tastes and looks good!  There is a HUGE difference between a CHEF and a COOK!

Venue Visit: Suite 300 & Kress Terrace

At least once a month I will go through and re-visit some of the area venues and give you some really great ideas to use them for your own wedding. Disclaimer: Not everyone can pull it off - AND don't sign a contract without reviewing it first!  That doesn't mean sit there and skim - it means take it home read it, highlight the areas of question and then ask the questions!  If you have a planner, they do this for you!  If you don't have a planner.  Quickly call us 336-25-9331 and we'll be your planner!

Suite 300 is a beautiful room - and the decor is nice, but it needs a little help.  Look at these photos:

This is a little bar - away from the party that blocks a hallway to the bride room.  I don't like it as a bar - but it would be really cute as a kissing booth!!!

This is the head table that was set up when I visited and the black dance floor.  Two things here - I hate the black dance floor, it should be white, light wood or copper to match the theme of the room.  In addition the mix of chairs is odd - the Chavari's should be silver to match or even better clear!

Love the lounge furniture!

These are the lights - I am loving the bling!!!

Cute for a head table - but the guests will not be able to see the bride and groom - because of the location of the table and the pillars in the room.

The bar!!  WOW!!!

Very cute art work!

The water feature when you come in the door.

Overall I give the location an B, with a few enhancements by a great designer (me), it can be the ultimate wedding venue.  It is not cheap, in all actuality you pay for the lounge furniture and the linens. Entry into the venue is difficult also, through a parking deck and down a manned elevator with a code, so getting out is difficult also.

Our brides would love this venue - with the enhancements because it is modern and new! Let me know your thoughts if you've seen this venue or will be hosting your wedding here!

Happy Planning!

Ordering Table Linens

Just one of the many details that enhance the look of a wedding are of course the wedding linens!  Here are some tips on ordering your own.  (Of course if you hired us....this would be taken care of!)

  1. Make sure you have your guests are seated comfortably and that you have an accurate account of who will be attending. 
  2. Call your wedding venue and make sure that you have the sizes of the table and ask what size linen do they recommend for the look that you are going for.
  3. Make sure that you have a floor plan of what the table set up will look like.  This should include, guest tables, sweetheart and/or head tables, gift tables, cake tables, candybar, and food tables. Each table size should be listed so you order the correct number and size of table linens.
  4. Now that you have all of this information - choose your linens!!
