Wedding Trends

The economy has become more consistent lately, and you can see the difference in the wedding world. Everyone is finding a new way to customize everything, and adding elements to the theme of their overall design of the wedding. Anytime you are creating a wedding, you are creating an experience, something people will remember. Even if you want a small intimate wedding, which we see more now as well, a smaller wedding does not mean less is more. Creating that intimate setting, you have the chance to have a more personalized wedding, which for some brides and grooms that can mean more. Even the bridal showers are becoming a little more non-traditional as well.
If you are looking for something new to shock your guest, here are some great ideas:
- carved ice sculpture to hold oysters, shrimp, and mussels
- mini food, everyone loves some mini portions
- a "midnight snack" this is a great idea to end the night with
- Something "to-go" as guest are leaving the party. Things like to go cupcakes, fresh cookies, coffee, beignets... etc.
- Ice sculpture bar... yes the actual bar is ice
- A non traditional cake - like cupcakes in the shape of a cake
- Glitter table cloths
- Cigar Bar
- Candy Bar
- Ice Cream/Sundae/Brownie Bar
- Flowers- the things you can do with flowers are endless! Between the altar, to the centerpieces. Flowers have become a very important part of every event, but buying flowers that are in season is much less expensive
- Providing games for those who don't like to dance
- Brooch Bouquets- this is such an adorable look if it is executed well

Themed Bridal Showers
- A couples shower- some grooms love to be involved, so don't forget about your men
- "Stock the Bar" they have cocktail style food and alcohol, and the gifts purchased are to "stock the bar"
- A monogram party- all the gifts to the bride have her new initials on the item
- A honeymoon themed shower

guest always love the mini snacks  Cute idea if you don't want a cake Brooch Bouquets - This could go either way.  Totally tacky or very cute. I like the idea though !cigar bar with hand calligraphed signcocktail hour - ice bar with oysters, mussels, shrimp, and cocktail shot glasses topped with crabmeat .. It was delicious !!!
