Spring is in the Air

Spring is in the Air

Brides are planning their weddings for this Spring and Summer.  I thought this would be the perfect time to provide you with our top 10 ideas for your big day.  A Spring wedding is the perfect time to start new, whether it’s in starting to plan your wedding day or you’re already prepared for your big day in the next few months.

  1. A tea length wedding dress is fresh and is perfect for any rustic or back yard style wedding this Spring.
  2. Bow ties have made a huge comeback.  They now come in a large variety of colors and patterns and can provide the groom with that something extra he’s looking for.
  3. Groomsmen can overheat on a very warm day, so consider a lightweight, light colored suit for them.  They’ll thank you for it.
  4. Glam up any wedding ceremony or reception with chandeliers.  They come in all sizes and can typically be easily installed, even for outside locations (gardens, trellis, and any backyard).
  5. Spring florals are fresh, bright and beautiful.  Lillies and Gerber Daises are perfect and they come in a multiple number of colors. Pick a color, it’s your day!
  6. Are you looking for that special getaway after the ceremony? Try a two seated bicycle or mo-ped.  Non-traditional for sure, but very memorable and unexpected for you and your guests.
  7. Lighting is pretty special and changes the whole aviance in your reception.  Up lighting is everywhere, so why not try something a little more Spring like, like colorful lanterns or use crystal chandeliers everywhere! It will make a powerful impact on your lighting and the tone set for your room.
  8. Spring is in the air, so check into an ice cream truck as your dessert or part of your dessert.  We all have great memories of the ice cream truck coming down the street when we were kids and running to get it.  This will bring back memories for everyone and is fun and unexpected.
  9. Don’t’ forget your “must have” photos. Something special for the two of you. Try a photo with you wedding party that’s different and new.  You’re photographer will have a list of ideas for you and if you have something special in mind, share the idea with him.  These are your pictures and you want them to last a life time.
  10. Favors are always fun to give to their guests.  It’s Spring so give your guests pretty packets of garden seeds or bulbs, mini trees or even mini florals.   The seeds will grow as your love grows for one another.

Wishing you much happiness as you enjoy the colors, the smells and everything Spring!

Happy planning!

2014 Color Wedding Trends

The hottest color trends for 2014 include Metallics…..bold golds, coppers and bronzes….shimmery silvers and lots of sparkle! Whether you bring in the color in your invitations, your linens, centerpieces or even your shoes, metallics are making a huge splash this year!

Gold Shoes

Pantone’s Color for the 2014 wedding season is Radiant Orchid. Although purple and violet colors have been used for spring and summer weddings in the past, reinventing your color scheme and being creative will make you stand out from weddings gone by.  Be creative and bring your colors in with your linens, chair covers and sashes, your cake table and gift tables, candles and centerpieces….if you can dream it, it likely comes in your color.  Be daring this wedding season and see how beautiful your wedding day can be.
