If you are having your wedding this spring or summer, you are one of the lucky ones to be a part of the wedding trends coming out that are unique, beautiful and timeless! In Paso Robles these trends are in full force since many of them are catered around an outdoor setting and in the country or out in nature. Wine country, the Central Coast, State parks and many other venues in the area are perfect for these new ideas…
1. Not so white wedding dress.
The wedding dress starting going into different hues last year and now they are kicking into full gear with greys, blushes, champagnes, nudes and other neutral colors that are anything but white.
2. Pastels all around.
The bridesmaid dresses, the flower girl, the wedding party and the color palate are all in the pastel zone, be it pastel blue and gold, pastel green and pink or pastel grey and lavender. From the fabrics to the flowers the colors are soft and soothing just like a basket full of Easter eggs!
3. Eco-friendly decorations.
More love for the earth anyone? Why yes! If you are a bride this spring/summer you are decorating with planted flowers, Eco-friendly paper products, up-cycling rentals and reusing bobbles, in an all out earth friendly way!
4. Chalkboard or watercolor?
Invitations are being sent out in handwriting print similar to a chalkboard or watercolor palate, with soft and rustic colors, whimsical decoration and vintage appeal.
5. Edible favors.
Who wants a beer mug with your wedding date on it when they can have a bag full of candied pecans? The trend for favors is that your guests want a little goodie bag of something tasty to remember you by that can hold them over during cocktail hour besides those cheese and cracker plates you put out!
6. Lace, lace and more lace.
Not only are the wedding dresses coming out in a rainbow of neutral colors, but they are oh so delicate with statement back pieces, lacy long sleeves, lacy off the shoulder cuffs, two piece lace skirt and top and lacy veils.
7. Lets get lost in the forest.
The flower trend is that everything is romantic, wild and a bit lost in nature. You will see pine cones, succulents, fern, sage, lavender, rosemary, wheat and many other unique plants weaved into seasonal flowers that are all very pastel, neutral and garden grown.
