Creative solutions

Hosting your wedding at an iconic cultural institution, like an art gallery or museum, is guaranteed to make your wedding a unique, once-in-a-lifetime experience for you and your guests. However, as I write in my story "Site Seeing" (read more in the upcoming Fall/Winter 2009 issue of Brides Colorado, on newsstands August 18), museum weddings can also have their drawbacks...namely, a long list of strict regulations regarding required vendors, accessible areas, and decorations.

But, that doesn't mean all is lost—just that you'll have to be a bit more flexible and creative. Case in point: Tracy and Paul's whimsical wedding at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center, planned by the fabulous women of Table 6 Productions. The ceremony was held in the art gallery's Loo Family Wing, where they weren't allowed to bring in any decorations or flowers, due to the surrounding artwork. So Tracy walked down the aisle carrying a bouquet of buttons, designed by RBK Creations (who also make matching button boutonnieres). Problem solved!
