2016 Wedding Trends
Getting married this year and want to know what’s trendy and hip? Summer is a popular time for couples to say “I do” and now more than ever couples are looking for unique and creative ways to add personal touches and express their own style on their wedding day. We’ve got the scoop on some of the latest trends that you may want to incorporate into your special event at Mistwood Golf Club.
Unconventional Wedding Cakes
These days some couples are forgoing the traditional multi-tiered wedding cake in favor of their favorite dessert. Love doughnuts? Cheesecake, perhaps? Go for it! The rules can be broken and couples are taking the liberty to create clever displays out of their favorite sweet treats.
Convertible Wedding Dresses
A few years back it was popular to have a traditional gown for the ceremony and change into a party dress for the reception. This year, wedding designers have created convertible gowns that can take you from day to evening by simply removing the skirt overlay from the gown. These dresses are lovely and made to impress!
Specialty Cocktail Bars
Mixology is HOT right now and has become the new favorite twist to the cocktail hour at receptions. Couples are serving creative signature drinks that symbolize something important to them or showcase some of their favorite libations. Add a cute name and it’s a hit with guests.
Additionally, couples are opting for “satellite” bars to allow for multiple drinks stations. This helps improve the flow of the reception and ensure that all guests are well taken care of.
Farm to Table Cuisine
Organic, locally-sourced cuisine has certainly hit the restaurant circuit the past few years and is now making it’s way to weddings as well. Give your guests a full menu with local, organic, vegan options alongside the traditional ones. You can also include specifically allergy-free meals for people who require special diets. Our caterers at Mistwood Golf Club can work with you to specialize your wedding day menu.
Entertainment + Performances
Couples are taking the traditional DJ or wedding band up a notch and providing additional entertainment for their guests. Photo booths, dance troupes and karaoke are some of the things couples have done to add a creative touch to their wedding. So, make yours remarkable and consider doing something a little off the beaten path!
Rustic chic is extremely popular this year as it hints to romance and laid-back casual style. No matter what you choose to do or theme you prefer, just add your own personal touches and it will be a day to remember!
