Whether your wedding day is traditional in nature or leans more on the original side, we love watching trends emerge. Check out these trends we are loving right now.
Mismatched Bridesmaid Dresses
We loved the trend of different styles of bridesmaid dresses, but the different colors and patterns has us in awe. This is a great way to add personality to your big day. #Brides has some great tips when considering changing up the traditional same dress trend. https://www.brides.com/story/bridesmaids-wearing-different-dresses-style-tips
First Look Impressions
We LOVE first looks. There is something genuine and romantic about that private moment when the groom sees his bride for the first time. We’ve seen first looks scheduled because of the logistics of the wedding day such as a time saver between the ceremony and reception. We’ve also had this request by the bride and groom to help calm nerves before the big moment with a room filled of family and friends. Jane Carol Events (JCE) couple Meagan and Jamie opted for a first look to help ease their nerves so they both could relax, focus, and completely be in the moment during the ceremony. Sometimes couples are hesitant about a first look for fear it would take away from their guests experiencing the groom's reaction when seeing his bride for the first time when walking down the aisle. In all the first looks we've witnessed, we've never experienced this feeling. A groom's reaction to seeing his bride walk down the aisle of a room filled with their family and friends will always illicit an unforgettable reaction.
Where’s The Cake? Who Cares!
Don‘t get us wrong, we LOVE a beautiful wedding cake. We also love when a couple changes it up. Not a fan of cake, that’s ok! Try cookies or donuts, yes....donuts. Other ideas include a sweet treat table with a variety of desserts or a candy buffet. If you are on the fence, go with both. Including a small cake for the traditional "cutting of the cake" alongside cupcakes or cookies is a great way to stay traditional with a little flare of personality.
What better gift to give the bride and groom than to truly be present during their ceremony. No one wants the interruption of a cell phone ringing, especially in the middle of a blessing or prayer. We all want to be able to capture the moment, however most, if not all, couples hire a photographer who typically allows the photos to be shared. Not sure how to ask your guests to unplug? Signs are a great way to incorporate detail and messages in a graceful way. We are totally on board with unplugging and truly allowing that moment to be shared, uninterrupted.
In this day and age, anything can become a trend. Be bold, be brave, and be you!
