Keeping in tune with trends makes a wedding
seem fresh and stylish and it seems everything old is new again…with a twist on
tradition. There are so many little details that a bride must decide on when
planning her special day. The day itself becomes a cherished memory and all of
the little details make it special and very personal. Trends and traditions are
all a part of making your wedding one of a kind and personal.
the trend has flipped…from inside weddings to outdoor weddings…a return to
nature so speak. Some of these trends have been around for a while, but they
seem to becoming more prominent for 2015.The return to nature translates not necessarily to rustic, but leaning
toward a vintage trend. Hand tied bouquets with a traditional teardrop shape
are making a return…bouquets that look fresh picked and lots of ribbons. Lace
wedding gowns, with vintage details revisit the past.
A glance to
the past is showcased in a meaningful way with homemade favors and locally
sourced organic food, with vintage inspired packaging labels. Drinks iced down in an old boat or galvanized
washtubs add a welcoming vintage flair. Nostalgic food is a revisit to
childhood by serving classic childhood favorites…all in a meaningful way. Think
homemade Banana Pudding, Peanut Butter Pie, or Oreo Cheesecake instead of
traditional chocolate grooms cake. Ask for the grooms favorite and incorporate
it into the reception as a traditional Grooms Table.

One of the
biggest trends in table décor is the addition of Mercury glass. My great-grandmother
had several pieces and the vintage feel adds a bit of sparkle to any theme or
table setting. Grouped together, with small flower arrangements it gives an
altogether, vintage, luscious look. Mercury glass is seeing a popular revival.

a guest would sign in upon arrival with a feather pin in a small guest book.
Today guests may sign everything from stones, platters, quilts and boat
paddles. The item may then be used as décor in the new home and enjoyed on a
line, the biggest trend is expecting the unexpected. Surprise guests with
fireworks, Confetti cannons, or a White Dove release. Put a modern twist on an
old tradition that is personal and meaningful. Little details make the wedding
meaningful especially with a touch of family tradition…a grandfathers pocket watch,
a grandmother’s broach, a family Bible to carry the rings are all tiny details
with huge heartstrings attached.From
the moment of engagement, write down little things you would like to
incorporate into your wedding day…both old and new!
