It may be hard to believe, but spring is right around the corner in the South, and you might as well start stocking up on allergy medicine and car wash points. But with the spring comes something else: a bunch of weddings.
It’s easy to see why people pull the trigger on spring weddings: the weather is nice, it’s not hot, everything is starting to bloom, people can take time off, it’s not hot… did we mention it’s not hot? But much like how you can count on the winter to fade and spring to arrive, you can count on new spring wedding trends. Luckily, we keep up with this kind of stuff and do our best to make it easier for you to stay in tune.
Here are a few spring wedding trends that you should keep an eye on if you’re planning a wedding in the next couple of months:
Non-Wedding Wedding Dresses
This is a pretty cool trend if you’re into the non-traditional. Wedding dresses are in high demand, so that means there are a ton of options. So it makes sense that some brides would choose the path less travelled and go with something, well, not so white-wedding.
A more practical purpose is these dresses can be used for most wedding events: rehearsal dinner, wedding, reception, and the after party. So, if you’re looking to make a splash this spring with your wedding dress, maybe think of a not-so-wedding wedding dress.
Get Your Food On
Food is historically a highlight at weddings, but in recent years couples have a stepped up their game when it comes to keeping their guests fed. A trend that’s seen some love in a few weddings that will likely take off this summer is interactive food stations.
With the bloom of “foodie” couples and guests, it’s increasingly important to have some “Instagrammable” food -- or, in other words, food that can be the centerpiece to a conversation. Maybe it’s a hot sauce station or a taco bar or an “ice” your own doughnut table. Whatever it is, guests are blown away by the creativity of these stations.
Ease Up on the ‘Cuteness’
A lot of blogs give you great advice on what to do, but sometimes leave out something equally as important: what not to do. We’re here to help.
While it may seem attractive to come up with clever hashtags and themes, at some point you have to draw the line. That’s not to say we’re anti-hashtag -- no, we say go for it. What we’re saying is maybe you should draw the line at naming your wedding drink after yourself. Looking at you, Ashleyrita.
What will always remain trendy is great live entertainment at weddings, whether it’s a live band, DJ, or the combination of both. Nice Entertainment can do it all, so drop us a line and see what we can do to make your wedding as awesome as it should be.
