Wedding Trends that Wont Get Old


 

Smaller Guest Lists
Let love sweep you off your feet, not a room full of people to greet! After months (or maybe even years!) of planning, you will be surprised at how quickly your wedding day flies by. At the end of it all you will likely feel exhausted. . . and hungry! One way to truly savor the day is to spend it with the people you love the most. So don’t extend an invitation to anyone you feel obligated to or someone who you worry might be offended if left out, or any distant relative you don’t speak to on a regular basis. A smaller guest list will eliminate stress and allow you to spend more time and money entertaining those closest to you. Your wedding day will feel more intimate and warm surrounded by the people who share in your everyday happiness.


Live Bands/Entertainment
One more trend we love is live entertainment. This doesn’t mean you have to do away with the DJ--an experienced MC can be a great asset to assist with your event schedule, make announcements and help guests, and keep the party going long into the night. Some of our favorite events have included an 80’s band getting the crowd off their feet, interacting, and performing with an energy that caused excitement in the room. If you decide on live entertainment make sure you see examples of their performances and get references, or view them performing first hand. Live musicians can also give a special touch to wedding ceremonies. Whatever your style, we’ve seen great musicians carry brides down the aisle with hand drumming pipe playing relaxing yoga vibes, classically stunning violins and harps, or a simply beautiful solo acoustic melody. 


Professional Photography & Videography
It makes us cry to think there are brides and grooms out there who decide not to hire professional wedding videographers and photographers. Seriously, just because your friend has an iPhone and computer doesn’t make them a professional. . . plus how awkward would it be to tell your friend the video/photos they shot were terrible or not what you were expecting? Ugh. Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your lives and you are spending lots of money and time and you want to remember it right? Let a professional do what they do best and capture all the details for you-just be sure to ask for samples of their work and decide if it looks professional, fits your style, and works with your budget and needs. If there is an area not to skimp-this one is it!

Geometry Inspired Wedding

A lot of people might ascribe geometry and shapes to a minimalist wedding design but that doesn’t always have to be the case. In fact, our favorite thing about geometry inspired wedding décor is that you can dress it up or dress it down to suit your tastes. Simple shapes can feel super dramatic—like a backdrop for an on-stage performance or they can be bare bones shaped outlines that provide a frame for a natural scenic backdrop. Here are some geometric wedding designs and décor suggestions to get you inspired. Enjoy!  Image Source We love this heptagonal wedding arch. It is such a blank slate that you can make it match any décor by dressing it up with florals of your choice. Placement outdoors could make this piece of décor an especially artistic back drop for exchanging your vows so be sure to play with placement. This arch could also be quite lovely indoors. It is simple and decorative without being over the top. Image Source: Featured on JuneBug Weddings Wedding Blog Another beauti
