The Design Studio
A Stunning New Wedding and Event Planning Experience

Occupying a state-of-the-art wing of The Ritz-Carlton, Charlotte, THE DESIGN STUDIO allows brides and event planners to walk through their complete creative process, moving from room to room as individual visions for a wedding and/or reception are visualized and customized. The Design Studio consists of seven rooms filled with striking artwork and graphics, as well as elegantly-detailed lighting, finishes and event inspirations. These settings touch the senses, allowing each stage of a wedding, for example, to be pre-styled according to the bride’s own inspiration and set-design preference. The studio features a spacious Cake Gallery showcasing 10 spectacular wedding and specialty cakes, a private Tasting Room for reception menu testing for up to eight guests, walk-through virtual wedding/event areas and The Design Lab, filled with eye candy to inspire the ultimate in event personalization. In The Design lab, exclusive tablescapes, including linens, china settings, chair selections and table design creations, are presented as starting points for bringing a bride’s style to life. Options for wedding and event colors, themes and props are presented, along with tools and guidance to make the concepting of each wedding a hassle-free creative process.

Access to The Design Studio is available at no cost to brides and planners presenting their events at The Ritz-Carlton, Charlotte. It is also offered to area residents wishing to order customized Ritz-Carlton wedding and specialty cakes for delivery to off-premise locations.
