The Team at A Charleston Event & Bridal Library were at it again this past weekend to show some new wedding trends in table top designs and ideas for upcoming wedding seasons. Shown here are planners, Brigid Redmond, Whitnie Eisele, Christy Roper (who heads up the wedding division) and owner Elyn Rahman in front of their booth at the Charleston Bridal Show on July 11 at the Gilliard Auditorium in Charleston, South Carolina. The biggest trend we're seeing for 2011 weddings are more whimsical and fun themes. Also, the most popular colors that we are seeing are the Teals, Aquas and Purples. These are bold colors and to me, they almost symbolize the type of confident and professional bride of today. Years ago, our brides chose subdued colors and pale tones with more traditional overtones. Today, anything goes and the more detail, the better. Also, the majority of weddings we design are for couples who want the emphasis on FUN! They want their guests to walk away from their wedding having had the experience of a lifetime. The other thing we are seeing a lot of is brides taking more of an interest in guest amenities and welcome packages. Gift bags with Charleston Goodies, boxes for families checking into hotels with everything including games for the children and fabulous place setting favors. A Charleston Event will do all the wrapping, assembly and even deliver for our brides. Guests feel most welcome and having a list of all the weekend's events and itinerary also allows them to explore Charleston on their own when they know when their free time will be. The Bridal Show not only allows A Charleston Event to show off our ideas, it also allows us to hear from brides about their ideas and style preferences. We get a chance to see what today's brides are thinking about when planning their weddings. Every wedding is unique to us and we love hearing bride's talk about their own visions of their day. This helps keep our own ideas fresh and up to date.
If you're planning a wedding in the near future and would like to sit down with one of our planners to discuss your wedding ideas and planning options, give the planning team at A Charleston Event & Bridal Library to set up a consultation today. Telephone: 843-494-9501
