We’ve just concluded “Engagement Season,” that time between Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day that seems full of engagement announcements. Maybe this year, that included you? And if it did, maybe you are starting to think about wedding decor and how to create a cohesive look from the first save-the-date to the last bite of cake.

It can seem daunting at first to pick elements to design around without having a “theme” but luckily, Rebekah Carey of A & B Creative is here to show you all the possibilities. As a designer and stylist for weddings, events, photoshoots and more, Rebekah specializes in a the little details that tie together a design and make it pop. Just for Rue, she’s created inspiring tables based around invitations that show how much impact choices like plates, flatware, and florals can be.

Best of all, you don’t have to be planning a wedding to recreate one of these lovely settings. They are just as perfect for a dinner party or weekend brunch with friends. Let’s get inspired!

Today we are sharing a set of glam and dramatic invites and tablescapes. If bright and fun is more your style, check back on Thursday when we’ll share part two.
