Brownstone’s Top 10 Wedding Trends
Trends come and go, but class and style always leave their mark. These top 10 trends have been surfacing these past few months and I’m glad to say that I’m happy to see some of these things on the list. So, here it is: the top 10 wedding trends for 2011!
1. Simple, but delicious & high quality menus
We’ve notice a lot of brides wanting to get back to the basics and not wanting to go over the top when it comes to food. Luckily for you, Brownstone Catering offers a variety of fresh and high quality menu ideas to fit your style and budget. Check out our sample menus here.
2. Outdoor and Scenic Venues
Fortunately, living in Southern California has a few perks such as mostly sunny days. Why not take advantage of our blue skies and have your wedding outside? Rather than hosting a reception indoors, partying outdoors is much more fun and relaxing. There are many venues in the Orange, Los Angeles and Riverside Counties that offer beautiful scenery to do this. One example is the beautiful Villa del Sol in Downtown Fullerton.
3. The Return of Vintage
Having an “old school” feel to your wedding has caught the eye of many brides and grooms. From renting vintage cars as transportation to holding your ceremony and/or reception at a historical site, it is understandable couples want to feel that their day is a part of history. This type of nostalgia creates a more romantic and intimate atmosphere.
4. The Ball Gown
If you paid attention to the 2011 bridal runway shows, it’s hard to not notice that ball gown wedding dresses owned the catwalk. Designers chose tulles and chiffon to create layers of volume. With a royal wedding around the corner, I can imagine lots of women want to feel like a princess. Who said you couldn’t have your fairy tale inspired dress after all?
5. Stylish grooms
It’s true most people will pay attention to the bride on their wedding day. But this doesn’t mean the grooms can’t get dressed up. Men have started to add touches to the classic tuxedo with their own personal style. Don’t expect to see too much black since gray and even navy blue suits have been getting lots of attention in the past few months.
This concept is probably one of the biggest trends. It may have stemmed from a bad economy, but these personal touches make weddings that much more memorable. From making your own placecards to your own centerpieces, it’s all up to you.
Eco-friendly anything has been on the rise within the past year. Blame it on the economy or global warming, but most couples are choosing to go green and opting out of printing invitations,save-the-dates, placecards and anything else you can think of. Some have decided to go completely paperless or printing on recycled paper.
8. Modern elegance
As I mentioned, brides are more attracted to going back to the basics. Wedding décor is much simpler with touches of modern design.
9. Textured Wedding Cakes
Other than the bride and groom, the wedding cake is one of the other main focuses of the reception. Butter cream frosting has had a sudden resurgence. Rather than having fondant flowers, more bakeries are choosing fresh flowers. One of our favorite bakeries is Patty’s Cakes. Tying in your cake stand into the rest of the overall wedding theme is a detail that shouldn’t be overlooked either.
10. Social Media Surge
Facebook, Twitter and blogs have been surging into popularity within the past couple of years. More couples are keeping guests, family and friends updated on their wedding plans and other couple news through these mediums. It’s quick and easy and allows for family and friends to offer advice and opinions. Are you on Facebook, “like” us. On Twitter, “follow” us and get up to date information on what we’re up to.
Winter Wonderland wedding ideas are the perfect way to create a world of wondrous enchantment on your special day. Guests will be submerged in a cozy atmosphere reflecting gold and silver. A Beautiful display of sparkling lights, over-the-top snowflakes, icicle decorations accenting luxurious dress that captivates the night!
All these ideas come to mind once you entering Brownstone Catering’s October Wedding Wednesday showcase “Winter Wonderland”. The first thing you see upon entering are a spectacle of lights that bounce off a lavish silk white linen placed through-out the venue. A glow of blue light strikes you as you make your way towards the entrée table. A beautiful center piece designed in the likes of an ice castle with a variety of yummy treats for you to try.
This Winter Wonderland provided guests an array of light and weather appropriate foods to enjoy. This unique creation combined with heartwarming classics is a perfect match for any holiday themed party or winter celebration. The menu included: crab and artichoke dip with baguettes, date and goat cheese puff, chicken roulade, brownstone’s famous creamy dill meatballs and an introduction to a chilled white chocolate mocha beverage.
