Lately, we’ve been seeing some amazing event trends that will have your guests talking about your wedding or event for years to come! Here’s what’s new:
1. Modern Opulence
We would’t say the the DIY rustic vintage trend is going bye bye, but we are seeing a slight shift from rustic to more modern, sophisticated themes with classic and dynamic details. From modern lounge furniture and vintage touches throughout the cocktail hour with lavish linens and an over the top elegant reception ~to~ complete monochrome reception decor with an old world glamour twist and haute couture inspired gowns ~to~ basic colors and modern lounge settings with pops of glam, sparkle, glitter and “talk of the town” entertainment.
2. Interactive Dining & Entertaining
Getting away from the seated 5-course meal, we are seeing a lot more creative food and beverage displays that encourage guest interaction. From small tasting plates paired with wine, beer or even whiskey samplings at the cocktail hour ~to~ live chef action stations and cooking lessons ~to~ dinners progressing from room to room ranging from tapas style plates, family style dinner service, make-your-own-bars, and late night surprises. And just in case you’re getting bored…the most exciting entertainment has included live bands with costume changes and multiple acts, glow in the dark props, stilt men and aerial cirque style performers.
3. Large “WOW Factor” Focal Points
Who doesn’t want their guests to say, “WOW, look at that…I’ve never seen that before!” Besides the unique interactive dining and entertainment options, some of the decor details that we have been incorporating include oversized opulent chandeliers, marquee signs with colored lights, ice sculptures; including luges and bars, fabric draped grand entrances with uplighting, bold statement floral arrangements and custom designed dance floors with company logo or couple’s monogram. Incorporating a logo or monogram throughout all the decor elements is a great way to brand a corporate event or add a personal touch with a couple’s monogram to a wedding. These are the little details the guests will remember, along with their over the top experience!
Now, who’s ready to party?
