Intimate is In: This season no matter what the budget or how long the guest list, intimate is in. From destination weddings to sunday brunches this wedding season will be full of intimate affairs.
What’s the Meaning: People are becoming less in tune with the more elaborate wedding and more in tune with the meaning behind the event. Interfaith Weddings: New takes on old traditions and the blending of different traditions, cultures and faiths, will be more important focuses of the wedding.
Rules are Out, Be Fashion Forward: For fashion, rules are becoming obsolete. Where the blue shoe was acceptable before, as is the red, green, purple etc. now. From long to short, brides are wearing dresses of every length. Bridesmaid dresses are steering away from norm and we are seeing more and more dresses that can carry over to any party. It’s less about the match and more about bringing out the personality. We have been seeing vintage for awhile now but it has never been this big. Vintage gowns, accessories, and decorations will work together to create a more whimsical romantic affair.
Be Dramatic: Instead of the natural look, there is a shift to a more dramatic look. Statement air, loud accessories and of course makeup. Brides are not scared to create dramatic and bold eyes or even a bright pout for the day. Since photographers are becoming more and more artistic with photographing style of weddings, the dramatic make-up can really be played up nicely and tastefully.
Fun Food: We’ve seen all types of deserts really being played up. Where as last year the cupcake tower was big, this season will be all about cake balls. They are a fun alternative to cupcakes and cake and really let you play around with designs.
Be Budget Savvy: As with everything this season, people are interested in getting the most for the least. There well be a ton of fresh new DIY tricks from decor, to favors, to pre-party celebrations.
