Wedding season is in full force for 2016! There will be hundreds of weddings in the Norwalk area, and our catering services will help brides and grooms pull off the perfect day. We’ve seen lots of trends for the year’s wedding season, too, and here are some of the ones that we believe are worth considering for your own wedding!
What Brides and Grooms Are Doing This Year
Small Weddings are In
Whether it’s a result of the economy or couples simply choosing to make wedding planning easier, smaller weddings are very chic this season. Brides and grooms are opting to max out their wedding guest list at around 30 people, having an intimate soiree where they can greet all of their closest friends and family and enjoy the night themselves. This makes it affordable to hire catering services in Norwalk to take care of the food, too, so you don’t end up with a bland buffet but instead can treat your nearest and dearest to something delicious.
Lots of Handmade Goods
Couples are putting their personal touch on virtually every aspect of wedding decor. From garlands to banners to chair decorations to gifts for their wedding guests, brides and grooms are putting in lots of hours on bringing Pinterest ideas to life and giving it all their own spin. It’s a great opportunity to involve family and friends in your wedding planning, too, since there is usually enough work to go around. All of the work pays off, too, with personalized weddings that are the perfect reflection of the bridge and groom.
Bright and Bold Colors
For the last several years wedding colors have primarily stayed in the romantic area of pastels. Gold, blush, and ivory topped the common wedding colors for many years running. In 2016 more brides are choosing a bold color pallet, opting instead for sunny yellows, bold blues, and passionate peaches that turn their wedding color pallet into a celebration. Many brides are adding pops of color in unexpected places, too, like groomsmen’s socks or inside their wedding cake.
Backgrounds are Big
Couples know that when it comes to wedding photos, you only have one shot, so they are making sure they give it their all. It’s no wonder in the age of social media photo backgrounds have become a big deal! Couples are making sure there are plenty of great photo backdrops for themselves and their guests, creating elaborate decorations that can be hung throughout the ceremony and reception to create the perfect photo. Flower walls and fairy lights are popular options!
Fun is Key
While brides and grooms embrace the solemnity fo their big day, once the vows are done and the rings are exchanged, it’s all about the celebration. Things like photo booths, yard games like cornhole, and even board games are big at receptions. Couples want their guests to have as much fun as they can during their big day and pull out all the stops to create an event to remember.
