How to Decorate the Scoreboard Area

There’s nothing wrong with leaving our scoreboard area as is on your wedding day.  There are so many interesting, inexpensive, and innovative options, we thought we might give you a few ideas on how to liven up this space.

The most budget-friendly option is to use the scoreboard to exhibit personal photos. A gallery of images of  yourselves, friends, family, travels, and past weddings of your loved ones can activate a space, and make it interactive as your guests mingle and view the photos. In essence, your walls become a conversation starter.

Shadelle and JR used a portion of the scoreboard to post some cute, wedding focused signage.  Letters and signs are easily found at Hobby Lobby, Michaels or even on Etsy. If you are the DIY type, which Shadelle and JR were, you can easily find some old frames, paint them and have someone with beautiful penmanship paint on a saying. The best thing about this? Not only is it budget friendly, but can be re-purposed at your home in a beautiful gallery wall including pictures from your wedding day!

I love how Shadelle and JR incorporated a fun photograph along with their wedding hashtag. This is an easy  way  to communicate to guests your hashtag. This way they will know when posting their pictures of your wedding to social media – typically your friends will have some candid shots no one else will have!

Briana and Steven kept with their rustic, diy wedding theme by dressing up the scoreboard with lit letters and burlap banners. The heart made out of string lights is a sweet touch and super budget friendly.

A lot of our coupled choose to use wedding decor rental companies to help decorate The Pavilion. Why not opt to bring some of the decorations outside? If you can fit it in to your budget, the L O V E signs are always a hit! Nicole and Jared chose a beautifully rustic love sign from Roots Reclaimed.

Ramona Arnold from Simple Country Weddings, has an amazing collection of vintage and rustic pieces that can add a bit of glamour to your day, including the L O V E sign used above at Michelle and Adam’s wedding and Eliza and Keeane’s day. Both couples used the same sign, but used them to create a unique look for each of their respective wedding days.

Alison and Craig chose a lit up rustic sign that looked amazing both before the sun set and after.  The couple sourced their sign from Tin Roof Farmhouse and couldn’t be happier with that decision. From Alison, ” Our favorite detail was the huge wooden L-O-V-E letters that we rented from Tin Roof Farmhouse.  We went back and forth a lot on whether or not to rent them and then whether or not to have them outside (since there was rain in the forecast) and we were SO happy that we rented them and had them outside because so many people took pictures in front of them (couples, groups of friends, families etc.) and it made me so happy and contributed to our “love” theme!”

Host a Brunch Wedding at The Pavilion at Haggin Oaks or Lakeside at Bartley Cavanaugh

Nothing is better than brunch — except maybe a beautiful wedding. When you think about it, there’s really no reason not to merge two of your favorite things. Picture it with me: a mimosa-filled reception tent, a towering doughnut cake and ALL the bacon you can eat. And of course, there are the hidden perks: Your photographer is going to capture endless well-lit photos, and the vibe of the party can be as casual or formal as you’d like. Oh, did I mention that your morning wedding will be significantly less expensive than an evening affair?

A brunch wedding is one of the most cost-effective receptions you can have: Our Brunch menu can range in price from $18.95 to $27.95 per head. Your liquor costs will be much lower than an evening affair, in fact we offer unlimited Champagne, perfect for creating a mimosa bar! Not a fan of champagne? How about a Bloody Mary Bar? A wonderful option to keep that alcohol bill low!

A recent bride, Mary, who opted for our brunch wedding option, said it best, “We didn’t originally think of a brunch wedding, we only knew we wanted something simple, relaxed, and fun. We decided on a brunch wedding for a few reasons: it’s so hot in summer that morning was imperative for an outdoor wedding, we wanted to stick to our very conservative budget but still have everyone not have to work too much to make it all happen, and brunch at The Pavilion at Haggin Oaks meant the champagne would keep flowing. Plus, who doesn’t love Sunday brunch??

I know everyone says they enjoyed their wedding, but we really did have a great, sweet time. My husband has said multiple times since then how much he really enjoyed the wedding–I don’t know how many men can honestly say that! Katrina, our coordinator from The Pavilion at Haggin Oaks, was so patient and thorough with me through the planning process, and Rebecca found ways to make special requests happen.”

Having a brunch wedding allows that most of your guest list can attend. I mean, who doesn’t want breakfast? It can be as fancy or relaxed as you want to make it, the natural light is great for your photographs, and summer mornings in Sacramento are the ideal time temperature wise. Plus, a brunch wedding gives you the excuse to put bacon on everything. Desserts, eggs, in your Bloody Mary — the options are endless.

Are you convinced that a brunch affair is the way to go for your wedding day?

Favorite Memory from Wedding Day

It is hard to pick just one moment for our wedding. I know everyone says their wedding is the best day of their life, but ours truly was. If I had to pick jut one, it would be walking down the aisle. The scenery was so beautiful, the decor was amazing and seeing my future husband at the end of the aisle was absolutely amazing.
