Spring is here which means the wedding season is starting to gear up for 2014. On Hilton Head Island, we’ve noticed that weddings are going softer, lighter, and more heartfelt. A return to chivalry has emerged and all of this is happening just in time for you, the bride, to melt hearts and make everlasting memories.
From fairy dust of fine glitter to outrageous decorations, wedding cakes will sparkle this year. It seems that the flavors of cakes are driven by the season. Brides are choosing light lemony cakes for their summer weddings. Chocolate cakes will make their comeback during the winter months featuring rich accents of mocha or praline.
It’s not just the blushing bride. Subtle shades of pink and nudes are making their way in weddings across the country. These nudes, blushes and peaches are an outstanding choice for the wedding party, floral arrangements and wedding decor.
This year’s winner is the many petaled tree peony. These soft, romantic beauties have been seen at White House functions and celebrity weddings. A strong second to the peony is the sweet-smelling garden rose.
Think back to the days of white glove service, big bands, men in tails and gold rimmed china. A major inspiration this year comes from the glamor of Hollywood. Brides have fallen in love with the bubbly approachable elegance of the Roaring Twenties.
Music must go a long way at your wedding and it must be fitting to your theme. Themes like The Great Gatsby feature elegant vintage table décor from the roaring twenties, art deco cakes and yes, the Big Band music to go with it.
Brides throughout the country are adding a little heat to their menu and guest are eating it up. From the mildest to the spiciest, the heat is on at the reception.
Chevron may have been big last year but those hard-edged looks have faded. Designers and planners are seeing trellis-patterns, bold stripes and florals.
Freehand illustrations are taking the place of the traditional formal wedding invitation. These completely custom invitations say everything about the Bride and Groom’s personality. The best part about the invitations is that they seem to be getting smaller. A more modest 5x7 comes in as the most requested size this year.
