Bubbles and Bites
Out with the old and in with the new; the biggest trend for cocktail hour? Tasting stations galore. Give your guests the chance to sample an assortment of foods. Try the classic mac ‘n cheese bar or an oyster shucking station! Food trends for 2015 also suggest serving family style meals rather than individual entrees. This is the easiest icebreaker and will spark guest interaction!
Similarly, beverage trends opt for providing guests with sample sizes of classic beers, wines and mixed drinks. These smaller portions could help keep costs down!
The most loved wedding flowers are not going anywhere! We will be seeing more of the signature three: peonies, ranunculus and English roses mixed in with tons of greenery to create romantic bouquets. Mint, ivy and magnolia leaf are some of the leading herbs that will be used generously in bridal bouquets and centerpieces. Also trending are oversized flower petals, which are a flawless way to add drama to wedding day décor.
The Pantone Color Institute® is the ultimate source of information on the fashion industry’s most popular color trends and forecasts. Marsala has been chosen as the Pantone color of the year! Named after the sweet Sicilian dessert wine, Marsala offers rich, earthy and sophisticated tones to compliment a variety of themes. Although, the dramatic hues of this color are most prominent when used on textured surfaces. It is a perfect shade for napkins, bouquets, and bridesmaid’s dresses. Pantone experts have also picked sixteen beautiful colors to best represent the trends found in spring, 2015. A mixture of warm and cool tones combine to create a soft, minimalistic approach to the nature like elements often found during the spring. Some of our favorites are Scuba Blue, a striking and exciting shade, Toasted Almond, a bronzed neutral, and Dusk Blue; a peaceful and muted tone.
Each of these trends can be easily incorporated into your wedding day.
Personalize them & make them unique to you!
