Happy Wedding Wednesday!

With the start of any new year, and especially during engagement season, it's key for event professionals to be aware of the industry trends, while of course creating trends of your own. Last night, I attended Aisle Perfect's Trends and Tastings event, which was a refreshing evening of discussing the latest bridal trends while enjoying delicious hors d'oeuvres pairings. The amazing team of vendors created a gorgeous and inviting space at The Loft at 600 F in Washington, DC that definitely wowed.

There was so much great knowledge shared last night, and so many talented, wedding professionals in one room. A few of my favorite trend highlights that were shared included:

  • There will be requests more and more for unique florals that are garden inspired, such as these beauties above created by Intrigue Designs.
  • Couples are into personalizing all details of their big day, from custom stationery to hiring a graphic designer to make wedding logos or monograms. Not to mention, of course coming up with wedding themes unique to the couple and hashtags for social media.
  • Blush and gold color palettes are here to stay! Alexandria Lindo also shared that copper is also a great accent for pink hues.
