wedding trends we love

2016 is upon us and there are so many fun wedding trends - it makes it hard to choose our favorites!  Below are some trends that have caught our eye….

'maids wearing separates: gone are the days of the single-use bridesmaid dress.  trending in bridesmaid fashion are separates, like this gorgeous tulle skirt & delicate lace top from BHLDN.  

ghost chairs: ghost chairs are all the rage, and while a little pricey, in our opinion, they worth the cash.  instead of large chairs in a dark color detracting from the beautiful tablescapes you created, ghost chairs allow for your guests to see the tables & florals. 

guesterly: you guys, this site is seriously cool.  it allows for all your guests to connect prior to the event, with fun facts and photos of each guest.  guesterly connects through Facebook, so you'll find it incredibly user-friendly in terms of picture & fact uploading.  you can also use guesterly to print programs or other paper goods with fun guest information.  getting the party started weeks in advance?! - we LOVE it.

foil & metallics: it's all over Pinterest, Instagram and Etsy and we're thrilled this trend is continuing into 2016.  gold foil is a wonderful addition to invitations or place cards, and who can resist a sparkly, gold metallic tablecloth for the dessert bar? 

non-traditional wedding parties: grandmothers as flower girls?  brothers part of the 'bridal' party and sisters part of the 'groomsmen'?  you could think we're crazy, but we think you should pick people to be part of your special day because YOU LOVE THEM, not because you need an extra bridesmaid or groomsmen.  this trend might be our favorite-favorite.
