For the Savvy Bride : Crave vs. Save


In our new Savvy Bride series, we show you how to get the look you love for less! In this feature, we styled both looks around the beautiful Kelsey Grey Lace linen.  Kelsey Grey’s smoky hue and sheer, textured lace are elegant and romantic – perfect for weddings, anniversaries, and countless other special moments.  We styled the Kelsey Grey with rich amethyst elements and silver accents for a timeless, seasonless look.


The Capri Bone White Chair featured in the Crave look has a unique silhouette and back detailing, perfect when you’d like an alternative to some of our more popular chair styles.  If the classic Chiavari-look is more your style, the Bone Reception Chair, paired with the Champagne Shantung Cushion, is the perfect coordinate for this look, as seen in the Save look.

The Aurora Violet Glass Charger sets the foundation for the Crave look with its purple hue.  Because of its transparency, the charger takes on some of the qualities of the Kelsey Grey, making it appear deeper and richer and a perfect pair with the Amethyst Shantung napkin.  The Eggplant Cotton napkin makes a strong enough statement in the Save look that the budget-conscious can opt-out of the charger without sacrificing style.


Silver accents add a metallic shine to both the Crave and Save looks, but the Campbell Dinner plate in the Crave look gives an added touch of detail with its patterned rim.  The White Rim Platinum Border Dinner plate gives the silver essence for less in the Save look.


The Campbell Lunch Plate 9” and the White Rim Platinum Border Lunch plate are the first course coordinates for their respective looks and echo the silver shine of the dinner plates.  

Bonus Save tip: If you love the Campbell pattern but want an option that still saves, you can mix one Campbell plate with one White Rim Platinum Border in the setting. We love a creative compromise!


The Dyana collection is the epitome of elegance, and its detailed stems add another element of intrigue in the Crave look.  For a timeless alternative, the Classic collection is a popular pick.

The Manhattan collection adds an unexpected art-deco inspired detail to the Crave look, where the Gotham collection keeps it sleek and simple in the Save look.


The napkin in both the Crave and Save looks gives both looks a bold pop of jewel-toned purple.  The Amethyst Shantung in the Crave look adds shine and texture to the setting, and the Eggplant Cotton is a classic, matte pick for the Save look.


For a a final, textural detail, the Silver Oval Napkin Rings tie the Crave look together, with the Brushed Stainless Napkin Ring acting as a more sleek, modern pick for the Save look.


Votives are a great way to incorporate soft candlelight to a design — the Tri-Sided Amethyst votives carry the rich hue into the centerpiece of the Crave look and the classic Clear Straight-Sided Votives are a no-frills alternative Save pick.
