one of the fun things about not doing traditional weddings or events is watching how trends evolve over time. truth be told, i don’t pay that much attention because we mainly focus on what our clients want but — i thought this was funny.
i picked up this month’s new york wedding magazine while waiting at laguardia for our return flight to nashville. you could tell they were trying to be brave but most of it featured things we’re already doing: gay and lesbian weddings, dramatic and colorful dresses and non-floral centerpieces. they also shared how the trend was moving away from chiavari chairs [thank glob, i hate them]
to these clear mirage chairs for your event — i guess to match the transparent trend that’s happening in fashion right now? [more on this later!]
no offense, new york wedding mag, but we’ve been doing that for about 3 years now. so have some of the luxury weddings i’ve been to and seen. not that i think i am a trendsetter, but my clients certainly are at every budget level.
i’m also curious about what’s coming next. my modest predictions involve the continuation of vintage and heirloom items [especially in nashville] and other forms of personalization; colorful [but not neon] themes including throwback hues such as teal, mustard, brown, burnt orange and avocado; fruit as part of centerpieces, floral arrangements and general decor.
what do you think? what do you want to see next?
