The February/March issue of Brides features some of the Fashion World’s most renowned designers giving their take on a beautiful setting for a wedding reception. Vera Wang encourages brides and grooms to be creative and to not be afraid to break the rules by mixing silver and gold or mixing up the glassware. William couldn’t agree more – it is part of his aesthetic to mix and match patterns of stemware to make a table setting more interesting.
In Vera’s setting we see tall stems paired with William Yeoward Crystal’s Vita Double Old-Fashioned Tumbler in Green, used here as the water (or wine alternative) glass. The palate is clean and modern, yet pretty and warm, with clean white, gray and silver contrasted with green and gold. The Vita pattern is available in select pieces in three other colors: Blue, Rose and Amethyst. Vita also comes in other glasses, including a Tall Coupe and a Highball Tumbler
Whether you are mixing new patterns of stemware and barware with something you’ve inherited, or selecting everything from scratch, consider mixing patterns for visual interest. As Vera says: “Trust yourselves!”
