WHAT’S OUT?? According to some top wedding planners, there are some things that have been “over used”, such as naming drinks, Boho-themed weddings, anything burlap, wood slices, long garlands running down the length of a table, gigantic wedding parties and large bridal bouquets. David Stark, of davidstarkdesign.com calls for a shift from the tradition of the bride’s family footing the entire bill for a wedding to a more modern approach, where couples and their families each contribute to the cost. Mindy Weiss, mindyweiss.com feels that pairing formal gowns and tuxes with cowboy boots and sneakers has had its day, and calls for other more unique ways to display your individuality. Other items which may be on the way out are flower crowns, food trucks, chalkboard signs and anything geode.
WHAT’S IN?? More color, less white. Elaborate entrances; arrive by helicopter? Motorcycle? Anything’s possible. For those on a budget, how about a stage curtain entrance? You can also arrive in a fog machine or confetti cannon. Garlands are still big as well as food stations and lawn games. Color palette of greys, creams and golds paired with glass and metallic are a new trend.
In addition to the traditional wedding cake, some couples are opting for doughnuts, cookies, candy and other goodies. Some bridal gowns are now available with removable skirts for a two-in-one dress.

Morgan and Greg: A last Minute Change of Venue

Morgan and Greg were planning on having their September wedding at a private home on Lake Travis. It was to be outdoors by the lake. As fate would have it, central Texas was having some pretty unusual weather that month, and there was a threat of thunderstorms for the day. When Morgan realized that their guests might have to sit outside in the rain, she made the wise decision to seek a venue where everyone could be indoors. It was interesting, to say the least, to have to notify all their guests and vendors at the last minute about the change of venue the Wednesday before the wedding, but that’s why you hire a wedding coordinator. Everything went off without a hitch, everyone had a fantastic time and guess what? It never even rained that day!

Seth and Caitlin’s interfaith wedding was planned with a lot of thought as to how to blend Christian and Jewish traditions into their wedding. They started by signing a Ketubah, a Jewish pre-nuptial agreement, which outlines the rights and responsibilities of the bride and groom. They rented a Chuppah for the actual ceremony and borrowed a shawl from the groom’s mother. Caitlyn had her minister officiate, incorporating some Jewish as well as Christian elements into the ceremony. As you can see from the photo, the couple’s wishes were fulfilled and they were very happy with the final outcome.
