Wedding Wednesday: The Linens

Apparently I have not only decided to slow down but also to post about weddings (and call the post Wedding Wednesday!) on random days! Today's post is about something I would really like to have at our wedding but won't be having. I was telling my BFF in Barcelona how I loved that I was getting married in Greece (she really wanted a greek wedding for me!) but I had this little (tiny super little) regret about not getting married in Barcelona (which yes we toyed with the idea). Why? because of the available options there are in bigger cities, more choice when it comes to cakes, glasses, plates, flowers and linens! 
No regrets though, I'm very lucky (massive thanks to our families for their support!) to have teamed with the very best professionals in the island so I know, I'm 100% convinced,it's going to be a success. I will however always like a nicely dressed table.

There are as many choices as there are fabrics of course, and the sky is your limit. I love stripes for a fun wedding, lace and linen for a sophisticated bash, sequins for a glamorous affair and chinoiserie for something a bit more eclectic.

Crimons, the rent specialist in Barcelona, has a beautiful collection of linens for the upcoming wedding season, and I can only say, swoon! I love the mix of patterns, and textures, the colours mixed with the beautiful glasswear and unexpected plates makes an incredible statement.
