This is the year of the destination wedding! Whether you marry on a Caribbean beach, at an Italian villa or on a mountaintop out West, faraway destinations have become a significant trend. More and more brides are cutting their guest count and heading out on the road to find that perfect and sublime place to say “I do”.

RESTAURANT CHIC

Wedding design is taking notes from great restaurant design. I’m adding in custom bars and custom chandeliers with lots of lounge grouping to make even a tented event feel like a fun, hip bar. Specialty beverage services rock out a variety of imaginative custom high test drinks for discerning guests.

FESTIVE FOOD

Food as art and entertainment is hot! Local specialties are in the limelight, and the presentation is as important as the food itself. Try a handmade burrata station, or gin cart or an oyster shucker roaming through the crowd. Create signature moments which are fun, delish and memorable.

REINVENT THE PROGRAM

I love pretty paper just like every other girl, but programs can really add up on your invitation bill. If you’re tight on funds consider one large display program placed at the entrance to your ceremony space.

BORROW YOUR ACCESSORIES

Complete your bridal look with a meaningful borrowed piece from your mother, or borrow that amazing necklace from a bridesmaid to complete your bridal look. This will save some pretty pennies and will make for a more meaningful overall look. Take their accessories on loan and look like a million bucks!
