Wedding Color Palette Ideas

As a successful wedding caterer in Atlantawe know that choosing a color scheme for your wedding is not an easy task. While your favorite color (or colors) is a good place to start, there are so many new and exciting color combinations right now that staying with conventional pairings just seems so staid. So let your “something new” be a complete departure from the tried and true. See below for a few bold suggestions.

Vintage Aesthetic

For a classic yet daring look, add a touch of gold to a black and white color scheme. Gold-trimmed wine glasses, black centerpiece vases with all white flowers and wispy gold ribbons glittering in the light — let your imagination take you back to a time when glamor was all the rage. If you’re changing outfits for some part of the evening, glam it up with a white boa, a solid gold gown and mile-high black stiletto shoes.

Serve black and white dessert items with a sprinkling of edible gold dust as a way to bring your evening of vintage glamor to a close. A Legendary Event can create a unique Atlanta catering menu to feature a variety of delicious dishes that reflect this color combination.

Modern and Bold

Pair traditional white with a terrific bold hue such as orange for an impact that will leave your guests stunned with awe. Set a luscious table with opalescent white bowls overflowing with orange fruits (kumquats, clementines, navel oranges) and dotted with showy white flowers like gardenias and orchids.

Or pair white with varying shades of slate for a smoldering, more sophisticated look. White and slate centerpieces (white flowers with slate accessories) will add drama to your table setting and help set the mood for an evening of revelry.

Simple and Elegant

Different shades of yellow and green will imbue your celebration with cheer and good spirits. Choose from contrasting ends of the color palette to lend an ethereal quality to your reception (bright lemon yellow with pale mint for example). Cluster a variety of yellow blooms in jade-green celadon vases and use them as centerpieces for your tables. As experienced Atlanta catererswe can create a variety of green and yellow drinks to serve at your wedding and carry the color theme from cocktail hour to the very end.

No matter what color scheme you choose for your wedding, we can weave it seamlessly into your celebration. A Legendary Event is a leading expert in the Atlanta wedding catering industry. When you let us handle your event, you are choosing an Atlanta catering company with the experience and creativity to come up with a truly unique and unforgettable event for you and your guests.

Signature Drink Ideas for Summer Events

After a hard winter, it’s quite understandable when people choose to hold their summer events outdoors. After being forcibly kept indoors by unfriendly winter weather, it’s hard to resist the lure of a warm sun, blue skies and a refreshing breeze. When the temperature climbs into the triple digits, however, people head back indoors to savor the comforts of air-conditioning.

Savoring a summer cocktail is another delicious and refreshing way to fight off the summer heat. Below are four revitalizing summer drinks that are guaranteed to keep you cool while standing up to the heat of summer.

A Splash of the Unexpected
For an unusual yet totaling beguiling flavor, add guava puree to your favorite sparkling wine. Serve Guava Mimosas with a stick of rock candy for a touch of sweetness and a dash of whimsy. When you dip the rock candy into the drink, a burst of bubbles tickles your palate as an added treat.

Asian Summer Delight
Stir in dry sake and a dash of elderflower liqueur to plum wine for a drink that’s sweet and light. A Plum Blossom is the perfect cocktail to savor on a hot summer day. Pop in a small pickled plum (also known as umeboshi in Japan) to add a bit of tart flavor — the perfect counterpoint to the plum wine’s characteristically sweet taste.

Blazing Orange Sun Cocktail
For a drink that not only refreshes but also mimics the color of the sun on a late summer day, nothing beats the Negroni Sizzle. Campari, gin and sweet vermouth combined with seltzer gives you an intensely orange cocktail that’s sure to please your taste buds and keep you coming back for more.

Tangy Southern Concoction
Named after the brand of Cognac brandy that serves as its main ingredient, Sazarac is a New Orleans version of a whiskey cocktail. It is concocted with a dash of Pernod and Peychaud’s Bitters for a distinct flavor that is sweet and tart.

Here at A Legendary Event, we are extremely proud of our continuing passion for creating signature dishes and drinks that are uniquely suited to our clients’ tastes and special requirements. It is part of what makes us one of the most successful wedding caterers in Atlanta today. Let us create an exciting and unique Atlanta catering menu for your special event complete with signature summer cocktails guaranteed to delight and refresh your guests.

Southern Wedding Traditions: Groom’s Cake

Most weddings tend to focus on the bride. Perhaps this is because they are often the ones working with their Atlanta wedding caterers and making the major decisions for the big day. The bride’s seal of approval has to be sought regarding the bridesmaids’ dresses, the wedding flowers, the venue, and of course, the all-important wedding dress. While your fiance may not always be involved in making major decisions, all men are interested in helping to create their own groom’s cake.
