Fresh New Wedding Trends
Naturally Tasteful Wedding Menus
According to Vogue, “locally sourced organic ingredients are still in demand. Beautifully presented, simple food is on trend.” We can confirm this—couples are asking us how to incorporate the freshest seasonal ingredients into their custom menus in new and exciting ways. Berries and fruits are in especially high demand, and they are even showing up in flavorful drinks. Living bars created using freshly cut foliage are a fun new way to present the punch and wine smoothies that are hot summer wedding drink trends.
Naked cakes are still popular, especially among couples planning outdoor summer weddings. But we are seeing increasingly more cupcakes beautifully wrapped in delicate doilies. Presentation is as important as flavor in every course from appetizer through dessert. Fresh berry toppings are a great way to elevate summer wedding desserts.
Couples are encouraging guests to slow down and enjoy their meal, from picking out their food through their last, scrumptious bite. By mixing formal and casual, couples get the best of both worlds. For example, BBQ-style buffets are a great way to embrace the always popular rustic wedding theme in an elegant backyard wedding setting. Pulled pork sliders and mac and cheese have guests feeling right at home.
Our culinary team also has lots of top ideas for indoor weddings—buffets are a great way to provide plentiful options in a relaxed setting. From sliders and tater tots to tacos, there are many popular menu items that can exemplify top wedding themes in fun ways. Buffets are also easily customized to include family recipes and meaningful dishes personalized to you—a steady wedding trend.
Iconic Philadelphia Venues
Inspired by royal weddings, castle ceremonies are catching on and are a phenomenal display of the popular move toward choosing noteworthy and even famous Philadelphia wedding venues. The Phoenixville Foundry is an incredible choice for couples desiring an impressive, high-impact wedding space. The state-of-the-art HVAC system is a huge asset in ensuring guests’ comfort even on the hottest days. Add in the rustic chic indoor wedding space with wooden panels and elegant chandeliers and your wedding vision takes on a very iconic form. Whatever venue is the right fit for your wedding vision, our experts will help you personalize every detail to perfection.
Glamorous Wedding Décor
When you consider color themes, think bright and sophisticated. Stick to just a couple of your favorite colors. Deep burgundy and navy are among the top wedding color palettes and are working their way into dramatic backdrops. Your personalized decorations stand out among bold colors, inviting you to share your story in unique ways guests will never forget.
Elevated Wedding Entertainment
From photo booths to dance floors, couples are looking for innovative ways to upgrade traditional wedding entertainment. Two fun takes on a photo booth are GIF-maker booths that let guests choose fun filters to apply to their animated portraits and photo booths that transform photos into images that appear to be hand-drawn.
