Put some WOW into your wedding!

Robert+Kristina_Married!

Kicking off Spring twenty years ago at the premiere of “Four Weddings and a Funeral,” Elizabeth Hurley may have explored with a consultant about what she would wear to the movie premiere. One action or decision can change the perfect event into something unexpected.

According to news.com.au, Hurley suggests her career may have taken a more serious turn had she not worn the famous Versace safety-pin dress that captured the world’s attention. Hurley became an overnight sensation when she appeared alongside her then boyfriend Hugh Grant wearing the infamous black evening gown for the premiere. The plunging Versace dress was held together by oversized gold safety pins, leaving little to the imagination. “THAT dress,” as it was forever then called, launched her career, but quite possibly the one she desired.

Spring refers to love, hope, youth and growth. Rebirth and renewal are the real purpose of Spring. Yes, the cake, gown and centerpieces are all important, but what about the one detail that takes it over the top? We want to bring new trends and services to make your special event not just beautiful but thought-provoking and modern. There are many details that go into creating a special event, but a final touch is when you incorporate a WOW moment with something new and different.

For the ceremony, a giant chuppah can take your guests breath away. {Pictured: the groom handmade the chuppah for his wife-to-be.} Walking down the aisle, is also a magical moment, and could be show stopping with a fireworks display or a special performance as you walk down the aisle.

Take a few dance lessons before your wedding, but instead of the standard waltz, choose a sultry tango or a high-energy swing routine, and then surprise everyone during your first dance. For an unexpected surprise, get your dad or even your grandpa in on the act. {Pictured: this new bride choreographed a funky dance for the Father-Daughter Dance.}

Just when everyone thinks the fun is winding down, liven up the party with late-night nibbles that will leave everyone ready for an after-party. Think about it: crinkle French fries, fresh chocolate chip cookies and milk shooters, a fully loaded taco bar, or even a chicken and waffle truck!

Sweet Treats: Tailored Sweets

What do milk chocolate mustaches, ombre cakes and donut bars all have in common? They are all really unique dessert items from Tailored Sweets! Located in Point Loma, this adorable dessert boutique offers fully customizable dessert buffets, cakes, cake pops, cupcakes and any other dessert item you can imagine. Owner, Sarah Stuckenschneider, never grew out of her childhood love for baking. Months before her birthday she would pick out the best birthday cake and wait with anticipation to make it with her mom. When it came time to plan her wedding, Sarah and her mom created their first ever wedding cake with their famous chocolate cake recipe. After the wedding, Sarah decided to follow her heart and start her own business brightening peoples days with a little something sweet!

We had the opportunity to sit down with Sarah and get the scoop on recent dessert trends, here is what she said:

What is the biggest dessert trend right now? Dessert Buffets featuring mini desserts or tasters. What’s better than eating one dessert, eating a little bite of 3 or 4 desserts and not feeling guilty!

Have you gotten any new or unique requests? Many couple are deciding to stay away from the all-white wedding cake. Instead they are requesting ombre cakes that incorporate the colors of their wedding.

What is the most unusual/odd request have you gotten? I don’t really think of special requests as odd, more of a fun way to let your personality shine through. I had a couple who wanted to have microphone cake pops because the groom was a musician and a bride that was so in love with rice krispie treats that we had to figure out a way to make them classy.

Anything cool and exciting you are working on right now? Right now I am loving flower pot cupcakes – Cupcakes in little flower pots, topped with butter cream icing roses. So delicious and beautiful!
