Tabletop: Urban Cool


The couple that travels together stays together, right? We asked Megan Clark at Clutch Events to come up with a plan for a duo with hometown pride, lots of stamps in their passports, and a community of friends and family who can connect and share stories. On a chevron-striped runner and amid low, jewel-toned flowers, graphic city icons mark tables, seat cards are luggage tags, and packets of old-school postcards and vintage stamps send guests home with a mission—but not before they share raspberry Pavlova, a novel and delicious meringue-based dessert named for a Russian ballerina.

“Talk things out so that both of you are represented in the look and feel of the day; couples who have opposing ideas about décor can look for compromise in food, music, and the ceremony.”
