Top 2012 Trend Ten: Tell your Love Story

by

A new trend in reception videography is the “he said/she said” versions of a love story (much like in the movie When Harry met Sally). Stories and video style can be customized to the couple’s preferences. And now instead of the traditional table interviews during the reception, the videographer is taping the reactions from the guests to personalize the video even more.

Top 2012 Trend Nine: Group Shots!

by

While in most other ways today’s brides are modern, they are moving away from odd angles and opting for more traditional wedding photos. Remember the panoramic senior class photos from high school? Brides do too! Capturing family and friends in one shot just after the ceremony, is reported to be a top photo request for 2012.

Top 2012 Trend Eight: She’s “Green”, But Are You?

by

She’s “green,” but are you? In 2012, the “Eco-Bride” not only wants to know that her wedding is green, but that her vendors, distributors and planners are green in their own businesses as well. She also wants to know where the waste from the reception goes. At a recent Green Glam affair, we connected with Atlasta Catering . . . they literally broke down our waste into 12 different bins to recycle or compost!

Brides are also choosing to wear their mother’s or grandmother’s wedding dresses. These dresses become customized for a more modern look, but stay true to their recycled roots!

Top 2012 Trend Seven: Decor . . . cozy, custom and regent!

by

Cozy, custom and color … décor for 2012 is changing! While communal dining at feasting tables has become just as popular as traditional round table seating, couples are now opting to personalize the dinner setting by mixing chair styles and fabrics. Wingback chairs, banquettes and benches are on every event planner’s wish list; however, the change up doesn’t stop there. Brides want glassware to reflect their personalities too. Amidst all this non-matching eclectic style, the Hollywood Regency style is emerging as this year’s top décor trend. This blend of vintage and modern styles is just what brides want to bring glamour, intimacy and splash of color to their weddings.

From our “out of the box” ideas, our top choice was the reception swing! What a unique way to keep guests entertained and in the swing of having fun!
