All over the country, wedding professionals are saying the same thing…this year’s sizzling hot trend is the return of tender romance to the wedding scene.
Everything from attire to food and floral choices simply shouts a “Greaty Gatsby” era type of theme.
For brides, pink is the color this year. Not a garish hot pink, but subtle, delicate pastel shades are definitely the hues of preference in accessories, table settings and flowers.
Men in the wedding party will be sporting the most elegant, timeless formal wear styles that reflect the retro appeal this year. Tuxedo professionals like those at Classic Tuxedo will also be able to properly complement the pink fashion of the women with handsome accessories such as pocket squares to keep the thematic unity of your wedding.
While your wait staff may be formally attired as well, odds are they’ll be serving a “family” style meal instead of individual, pre-plated courses. It’s a change that engages the guests at each table and promotes even more conversation among the guests.
Food is getting spicier this year as well with more and more brides opting for slightly, hotter and more ethnic oriented foods to add another fun element to the reception. “Wedding chicken” will be hard to find in 2014.
And music selections are far looking to be far more varied this year with many couples opting for at least one long set of big band music that is representative of the more romantic, formal era that’s back in vogue.
What will your choices be? Whatever best says “romance” in 2014!
