Wedding Trends

Reception centerpieces bring your event to life. Displaying the theme, style and personality of your wedding, it's important that you work closely with your florist when deciding exactly what you want. If you have no clue where to begin, here is some inspiration that we are loving.

There are so many ideas out there, it can be hard to narrow it down. Talk with your florist about what flowers are in season and this may help narrow down your flower choices. Also, keep your mind open to different vases and containers for your vases. You can use mason jars, vases or display them on top of a candelabra. There are also details that you can add to each arrangement like candles, ribbon, some bling and pictures. Centerpieces are easily customizable to fit you, which is the most important thing.

You've heard of many food bars at weddings and parties. You can get just as creative as you want and your guests enjoy them so they can create just the food concoction they love. Have you thought about creating a popcorn bar? You can put different types of popcorn out there like caramel, cheese, kettle corn, white cheddar or the classic butter popcorn. Don't forget to add addition items like nuts, candy, melted chocolate or  popcorn seasoning. Your guests then have the pleasure of creating their favorite combination.

On your perfect day, you want the perfect bouquet. Next to you, the flowers are poised to be the talk of the day (and possibly long after). Here are five summer 2015 trends in bouquets that can give you an idea of what you want.

Pretty Pastels

Pastels are the perfect color scheme for feeling like a princess. Once pastels took the color crown, they never went away, and now they are the biggest color trend of 2015. The best flowers to use are garden or hybrid tea roses, mingling with smaller flowers like freesia and some cute berries for an extra pastel punch (and a little light green, allowing you to shy away from dark foliage among your lighter colors.) Roses are always in-season and are available in many pastel hues, including pink and yellow. Pastel will add a splash of color to your white ensemble without overwhelming it.

Size Matters: Large-Petaled Flowers

If pastels are too, well, pastel for you, think about making a statement with bright, bold, large flowers open against each other. They’ll be practically fighting for superiority, but your florist will easily be able to balance them out so that there is harmony in the battleground (namely, your bouquet holder.) This will make quite a statement against your white dress!

White Wonder

Whether you prefer large or small flowers, there is no color scheme more classic, and yet still a strong trend, than white. Kim Kardashian’s wedding was pure white, with the added statement of clean lines and no exposed stems. All greenery was hidden behind voluminous ribbon to emphasize the pure white blossoms, and that look is easily attainable for you. Your florist has many bouquet holders and ribbon styles to choose from if you decide to go the covered-stem route.

Bold Bling

What’s more fun than a bit of sparkle? Your florist has tons of choices in bejeweled accents for any style of bouquet. All shapes, sizes and colors of sparkly goo-gah are at your fingertips; some are threaded onto wire to go around the stems, others can be pinned to the flowers themselves. Glitter can be minimal, tucked into the blossoms to catch the eye, or it can be an in-your-face statement to your guests: “I am the princess today!” Whatever you choose, a glittery bouquet is a trend-forward option.

Garden Glory

If you want a more natural look, your florist can make your bouquet appear as though you picked it straight from a garden or meadow. It can look as wild and untamed as you like; your florist will be able to secure it in such a way that it will stay together. For a really “from the garden” look, consider integrating flowering herbs as well as flowers.

Your wedding is your day, and the bouquet is part of the centerpiece – which is you! Trend-forward and never passé, you are the star. Good luck!

Quite possibly the most crucial item in your wedding: the dress. Brides may think it’s more important than the food, the flowers, and some would even venture to say, the vows. You’ve dreamed about this day since you were dressing up in your mother’s wedding dress. Meaning, it’s important as ever to find the perfect one for you.

This year, gowns have taken elegance to a new level and Wedding and Party Network is bringing the latest trends to you.

Designers are taking their dresses back to a more simple way for 2015 with simple, romantic designs that graced the runways at Bridal Week. Off the shoulder, flowing, lace and even pale blue are a few things you can see brides in this year.

Get ready to bare those shoulders, brides. Off the shoulder dresses are increasing in popularity. And we can’t blame you girls, these dresses softly whisper romance to anyone who sees them. Beautiful lace and chiffon are accompanied on these off the shoulder beauties, which will help elongate your neckline.

Who says you have to wear white? For our funky brides, colored dresses are so in. The ever popular champagne has had some competition with “something blue.” These gorgeous pale hues of blue are a fresh take on an old tradition. We’ve even seen pale lilac and red.

Fit for a princess. Princess Kate’s style is still carrying over on the runway with dainty sleeves that are fit for a queen. These embellished sleeves add elegance to any wedding and will have guests in awe.

Dress like royalty. Designers are bringing the feel of royalty to their dresses with lace appliqués and beading.

A hint of illusion. Something new we are seeing this year is the idea of illusion sleeves. Forget those frumpy long sleeves dresses of the past; sheer fabrics sewn with chic lace add style to any modest bride.

Whether you’re searching for sophistication and grace or wild and non-traditional, 2015 is the year for you! With such diversity in this year’s trends, you will find the dress to make your day perfect.
