TO MENU

        There is no shame in sticking to tradition, to say “yes” to a crisp white dress, to having a
        private wedding ceremony, or to riding away in a car with “Just Married” painted on the back
        window. Sometimes, it’s okay to have a little fun and say “yes” to some new traditions!
        Weddings are all about showcasing your love for one another and letting your personalities
        shine through the details you choose to incorporate. Here are some new wedding traditions to
        take on for your big day!

        The Black Tux


        Couples commonly included one or two colors in their wedding decor to avoid sensory
        overload. Subtle hints of the Pantone color of the year in bridesmaids’ dresses or in floral
        arrangements, tablecloths, and centerpieces would be the extent of color incorporation at
        weddings. Now, couples are shifting more toward having color palettes and overarching themes
        for their decor. Gold, peach, and green is just one color combination that newlyweds are using
        to expand their color options in an easy way. It’s great if you have one color in mind, but why not
        add texture and depth to your decor by intertwining different colors that harmonize with your
        statement shade? The options are endless, and it’s important to not be afraid to play around
        with different color palettes for a natural, cohesive look that your guests will adore.


        If we’re talking dresses, things are not how they used to be. Brides didn’t stray too far from the
        classic white dress with subtle sparkle and a simple shape. Nowadays, brides are
        experimenting with tea-length hemlines, and blush and champagne-toned gowns for a unique
        spin. These shades give brides an alternative to white, but still, give ethereal vibes with some
        added dimension.
        For grooms, it can be hard to totally part with the classic tuxedo. Instead of purchasing your tux,
        which can be costly after many trips to the tailor, you may want to consider renting your suit or
        tuxedo online to be sent to your house. They rarely require alterations, and you can send it right
        back when your event is over- talk about convenient! Some grooms are also having fun with
        their groomsmen by wearing colorful socks to show a little bit of creativity and personality.


        Food is all about fun these days. Instead of family-style dinners that were typically plated, many
        couples are opting for make-your-own meals and food truck-style desserts. Taco bars are all-
        the-rage, and why not throw a coffee bar in the mix before your guests get on the dance floor?
        Couples aren’t completely ditching the traditional tiered cakes, either, but they have spiced
        things up since. From donut walls to bite-sized pickings, you have all the freedom in the world to
        choose a creative dessert that reflects your and your soon-to-be spouse’s personalities!
