Wedding TrendsThroughout the years, wedding trends come and go, but most experts in the multi-million-dollar bridal industry agree that this special day remains the bride’s show. With so many bridal magazines, TV shows, Internet listings and specialty shops, planning a wedding might seem intimidating. It’s a good idea to plan ahead and, when necessary, seek advice from the experts.

After all, the bride’s dream-day shouldbe perfect in every way. As the wedding industry continually changes, modern brides do retain some tradition in their plans, said Ana Maria Soler, director of catering and events at the  Golden Ocala Golf and Equestrian Club. “Maybe it’s a toast, or a traditional gown, but tradition is still there in some form.”

An experienced planner and caterer can take a lot of stress out of the planning process and offer selections and ideas to keep a particular budget intact. Let the experts figure out a floor plan that works best for your reception guests. As the wedding date nears, the experts easily manage important details like these.

Every bride dreams about this special day, and modern couples approach the planning process with savvy, creative ideas. With a few personal touches throughout the process, they create a memorable event for everyone. Whether formal or informal, invitations can easily be tailored by adding a color scheme to the “save the date” notation, or by incorporating colored ribbon or lace.

Food is perhaps the best part of the wedding, especially for the guests. Everyone anticipates a pleasing, delicious presentation, but just as fashion changes each season, food trends change also. Long buffet lines and extended bar hours are gone, replaced by vignettes and cocktail stations.

These increasingly popular themed mini-stations allow guests to flow and mingle. Latin, Cuban, Indian and island menus are favorites, and “his and her” stations enhance the couple’s food customs and traditions. Mojitos are a trendy cocktail, and signature drinks are another fun and memorable way to personalize an event. Of course, wine remains a favorite drink for the wedding reception, but nonalcoholic drinks and flavored waters are also showing up at receptions.

Head tables are no longer in vogue, and although sweetheart tables are still fashionable, many couples prefer to mingle among guests nowadays. An eclectic mix of candelabras and flower arrangements accessorize the reception tables.

“Wedding trends have gone far away from traditional centerpieces,” Soler said. “This is an area where anything goes.”

Nowadays, personalized color is almost always used to accessorize wedding cakes and dessert stations. While the retro look of bride and groom cake toppers has been slow to catch on, most brides prefer flowers and sculptures as cake toppers, and monogrammed letters are a huge hit. A coffee station, offering flavored and specialty coffee, complements the wedding cake and dessert station.

Cupcake wedding cakes are a trendy preference for younger brides, and the theme is extended by offering a boxed mini-cupcake as a wedding favor. Martha Stewart’s candy buffet or confection bar remains popular. Guests will enjoy mingling at a table display featuring various candy-filled glass containers. As a finishing touch, placement of silver spoons and scoopers allow guests to fill small boxes or bags for take-home favors.

Ideas and creativity are endless when planning party favors, as well as throughout the entire wedding. With a little thought and creativity, the bride’s special day will remain a keepsake for the couple and even the most critical wedding guest.
