What’s trending in weddings?
Paperia | August 2014
These five wedding trends have been all the rage in recent years according to Emily Post and The Knot.While only time will tell if they’re here to stay, engaged couples can gain inspiring ideas from these fashionable fads.
#1 – Personalization
Couples are taking time to infuse their cultures, personalities, and unique stories into their wedding celebration. Custom monograms, ethnic foods, meaningful favors, and lighthearted whimsical invitations are just a few examples of this.
#2 – Cost Sharing
Today, the burden of financing a wedding no longer lies solely with the bride’s parents. Grooms’ families and couples themselves are pitching in towards creating their perfect celebration.
#3 – Colorful Palettes
While white, ivory, pale pinks and neutrals are still popular, many couples are incorporating a bright, bold hue to add a little snap, crackle, pop to the mix! Think bold turquoise or deep poppy paired with more subtle shades. This signature color can be interwoven throughout the flower arrangements, wedding invitation suite, and attendant attire as an upbeat accent.
#4 – High Tech Weddings
Weddings are using technology tools more than ever. From custom wedding websites to requests for emailed RSVPs, online resources can facilitate the exchange of information between hosts and guests. What’s more, unique hashtags on Instagram and Twitter make for live content sharing and easy photo curation.
#5 – Involved Grooms
Today’s grooms are more active than ever. Not only are they showing up for the decision-making vendor appointments, but they are also rolling up their sleeves to assemble favors and stuff wedding invitation envelopes. Ladies, take advantage of this help and be sure to recruit your man to participate! It will make planning way more fun and serve as a team-building experience.
