Pinterest Worthy Wedding Trends

We’ve all seen them pop up on Pinterest – hot wedding trends and must haves of the season. Pinterest shared their top 2016 Wedding Trends, here are 3 favs we hope continue through 2017 and beyond.

Mismatched Bridesmaid Dresses – Weddings are all about personal touches. What is more personal than a bridesmaid in a dress she looks AND feels good in. As the bride you don’t have to compromise, you can steer your maids by choosing the colours, fabric or general shape. Just know they don’t need to “match”, so long as they “go” together.

Unplugged Ceremonies – There are few things I love more than couples who are on board with allowing their guests be in the moment. Have a professional photographer capture the day and ask guests to put their cameras down. Bonus: the pro pics also won’t have iPads and cell phones blocking their view!

Food Trucks – The culinary creations now available from food trucks has gone so far beyond corndogs and hamburgers. Whether it is your wedding reception meal,how to create guest user in macbook airlate night snack or dessert bar, food trucks can create an inviting, conversational atmosphere for your wedding guests to enjoy.
