Our Favorite Wedding Decor + Details from 2017

Absolutely mind-boggling, genius innovation, jaw-dropping, awestruck… those are just a few of the words we’re using to describe all the gorgeous designs + décor we saw on GWS in 2017! You probably already know this, but at GWS we’ve got a *thing* for creativity + making things unique – especially when it comes to weddings… and designing big days that truly serve as a reflection of the couple. And we can’t wait to show you the lot! From tablescapes topped with succulents + colorful balloon arch installations, to a wall completely covered in florals; each and every wedding had that something special and we hope this inspires you for the coming year!

Since we LOVE them all, we’re highlighting our faves in no particular order. Enjoy!!
