We had so much fun attending the WeddingMBA in Vegas this fall. If you already follow us on social media you received several sneak peeks at what’s heading our way. The craziest part is everything we learn last week truly won’t hit NC for another few years. So if you want to be a trend-setter keep reading…
The color green is going to be HUGE!!! This includes lush greenery in your floral, centerpieces, ceremony décor, and wedding party flowers. Linens will showcase this color and add pops of accents throughout your event space.
BOLD colors will be the other options…think 80’s without the neon tints. Fun patterns and textures will be embraced more than ever before.
Flower walls as backdrops to ceremony alters, escort card displays, photo booth areas, cake tables and even your sweetheart space makes for a great spot to add this amazing show piece to bring in your event colors.
Floral crowns will embrace not only bride’s heads but their entire wedding party including the cute flower girls and even moms. How amazing would it be to have your florist stay onsite and create floral crowns for guests as a party favor. The experience alone will have your guests talking for years to come…
Gold isn’t going anywhere…if anything it’s going to take over! The more sparkly the better! (super excited about this!)
Customized bars and drink stations are going to be a great way to add design elements and your personality to your party. Bars are going to be moving away from the plain boring 2 8-foot banquet tables and black linens. We’ve got several local builders that will custom make a bar for your event and rental companies that supply fun bars your guests will talk about way after the dance party has ended.
Speaking of bars….create a lounge vibe for your event. Guests leave events because they are bored. Create areas for them to people watch, engage with the action by just sitting on a couch by the dance floor, or satellite areas they can sneak off for conversation with family they haven’t seen in a while.
Seating is another huge game changer! This is one area I think I’m most excited about because I’ve been trying to talk couples into out of the box seating further than a 5-round table with 6-10 guests. Mix up you tables by having some tables be smaller and intimate with 4-6 seats and then have others be family tables with larger groupings. Think of different types/styles of tables. Ask if your venue has larger rounds, different size of banquet tables, serpentine tables. We’re currently looking to showcase these ideas during our next few designing meetings with upcoming events.
Menus are another area you can put a spin on your event by adding creativity. If your budget allows do more than just chicken, a starch and vegetable. Do action stations or even consider bringing in food trucks to showcase your favorite meal.
I know we are currently shifting to more of a design partial planning service for our clients. Don’t worry we’ll still offer the other packages but we are ready to bring your wedding into the future. Be a game changer…trust us! Your guests will think you were a genius planning your event from all of the details and before this area’s time for the latest trends….
