So you’ve found the love of your life and you’re ready to get married – what’s next? Planning a wedding can be such a wonderful experience but it’s not without its challenges! At Liuna Gardens, our space can be transformed to set the stage for your special day – exactly as you envision it! When it’s time to get the wedding planning in motion, be sure call upon the professionals. We recently caught up with Reyco Velazquez, of The Wedding Depot in Hamilton, to find out what trends we’ll be seeing in the wedding industry right now, what advice she has for newly engaged couples and the wildest request she’s received from a client! 

LG: Tell us a little bit about The Wedding Depot?
RV: The Wedding Depot is a small family run decorating company. We specialize in hall decorations and wedding rentals. We take care of all the set up and take down and we customize each decorating package to bring a couple’s wedding dreams to life!
LG: What kinds of trends are you seeing in the wedding industry right now?
RV: Right now what’s trending is elegant and extravagant high end linens and upscale fancy furniture for the head table and chiavari chairs are very popular.  

LG: What advice do you have for newly engaged couples who are just in the beginning stages of planning their wedding?
RV: Have a budget in mind! Do your research and find pictures that inspire you and help the decorator have an idea of your vision. Remember “simple elegance”…more isn’t always better. 
LG: What is the wildest request you’ve received from a client?
RV: We once had to decorate for a goth wedding! We used a very dark colour was definitely different than any traditional wedding!
LG: What is one of the proudest moments The Wedding Deopt has had?
RV: After the event has taken place and we arrive to take down the decor I get to congratulate the couple and see the smiles on their faces. Hearing how much they loved the decorations and received compliments from their guests, makes the job so rewarding.
We are also very proud to have been a top 10 nominee for the Spectator Readers’ Choice Awards.

LG: What is the most rewarding part about working in the wedding industry?
RV: We love knowing that we help make dreams come true! We help couples start their married life together with a beautifully decorated hall to share their special day with all their family and friends. To put it simply, we are in the business of creating memories!
