2014 LOOK BOOK
Lovely things are our favorite things, and your event is no exception! French Knot Studios can handle your entire event from the start of the design process to the last dance.

Audrey Wagner King is the idea factory behind French Knot Studios. With a background in design for the theater and an MFA in Fibers, she excels at working with a variety of materials and designing new event details. Her love of all things wedding and event (graphic design, floral design, space planning, music, lighting, menu selection, et cetera) offers a unique opportunity to work on every detail for an event that is truly special and reflects the couple’s love story through both its design and her impeccable styling aesthetic. Her exceptional work has been seen on all the ma jor wedding blogs: 100 Layer Cake, Style Me Pretty, Ruffled Blog, Grey Likes Weddings, The Knotty Bride, Emmaline Bride, and others.

STYLING y PLANNING Bringing in an event stylist and planner is key to ensure an event is filled with signature elements for your day and they are carried out from the invitations to the last farewell. Weddings and events are about celebrating, and although there are a few guidelines to consider (everyone needs food, drink, and fun) we have no preconceived notions as to how they should be designed and organized. Tell us about yourselves and your story, and weâ€™ll find the ideal elements to create your event. Design, styling and planning services start at 10% of your wedding budget, with a minimum budget of $35,000. Intimate events or elopements start at $1,000.
CONSULTING Consulting services are available if you just need help getting started on an idea, or paring down too many of them. We are happy to weigh in on your Pinterest board, create a mood board and color palette, advise on vendors, answer etiquette questions, help with an event time line, or anything else you may want to ask a wedding professional. Consulting is $75 per hour with a 6-hour minimum.
BACKDROPS y INSTALLATIONS
Give your ceremony, head table, or dessert table something extra with a backdrop or site specific installation. The examples shown here pack up neatly and can be shipped anywhere in the world. If something more involved is on your mind, we will come and install it. Other backdrops and installations can be seen on our website and have been made with antique china, fabric medallions, and lots of glitter. Backdrops and installations start at $250.
DECORATION DETAILS Reflect your story in the details of your event. From the perfect favor to signature cocktail garnishes, adding that special finishing touch pulls everything together. We can make those little extras in our studio as well as consult on appetizer garnishes, source local items, and find ways to incorporate sweet sentiments or family mementos. Prices for items vary.
FLORAL DESIGN Bouquets, flower crowns, centerpieces, boutonnieres, and flower installations are all possible. We work with fresh flowers, or make them out of paper and fabric. Our floral design can be done in house or weâ€™ll work with the best local talent. All depends on the needs of the event. Floral design quotes are available upon request, just let us know your needs, color palette, date, and budget.
VEILS y HAIR ACCESSORIES Whether you prefer elegant and classic, or avant garde and dramatic, we create accessories and veils with the finest materials, and use vintage elements whenever possible. If you would like to use parts of a family memberâ€™s veil, we are happy to use it in the design, or make fabric flowers to tuck into your bouquet. Hair clips start at $75, headbands start at $200, small blusher or birdcage veils start at $65.
BELTS y SASHES The perfect sash or belt is all you need to personalize your wedding dress. Made to order in any size, color or finish, we use vintage ribbons, trims, and jewelry pieces in each of our one of a kind sashes. Feathers and tulle can add a bit of whimsy, and subtle or bold color brings it all together. Your groomâ€™s neckwear and the base of your sash can be made from the same fabric, or bring us a grandmothers brooch to start the design process. Sashes start at $200.
MENSWEAR ACCESSORIES The perfect bridal party gift is something they can use again. For the guys, this means a great accessory. Neckties (skinny or standard), bow ties (pre or self tie), and suspenders are all great gifts for men. Simply tell us your color palette, and weâ€™ll send you a board of swatch options. Choose one pattern for everybody, or mix and match. Hand embroidered dates and monograms are available upon request.
Pre-tied Bow Ties
Self-tie Bow Ties
KIDS y PETS Including pets and/or children into your ceremony can add that extra bit of charm. So make them look as charming as possible with an adorable flower girl dress, vest and tie to match the groomsmen, or a cape complete with ring pocket. Flower girl dresses start at $100, ring bearer vest and tie start at $90, and dog vest as shown (large dog and hand embroidered) is $350.
