Recently the team here at VO got the opportunity to attend one of the biggest events of the year in regards to wedding planning. The annual NACE Houston Wedding Trends event was the perfect way for us to really grasp upcoming relevance in the wedding industry! At the event, we were graced tips from several speakers including a major publication editor with TheKnot! With that being said, we’ve gotten some new insight on ways for you to be trendy while staying original and true to your style!
The event really got us thinking about ways to help you make your event trendy yet original! A few things we find important to focus on in order to create a personalized style include color palettes, florals, and paper goods.
Color tends to be one of the first things that most want to establish when beginning wedding plans. Radiant Orchid, Pantone’s Color of the Year, of course is all the rage this year. Purple not your color? No worries, at a number of bridal runway shows we have attended recently cobalt blue is also a front-runner! These bold colors go great with nudes, blushes, and peaches that are also high in popularity lately. Gold “Gatsby-esque” accents can add some glamour to any style.
Lush, elegant ivory and white florals are big this season. What we really love about that is that they can really tie into any color scheme you choose! So many different species of flowers come in white and ivory so there is a lot of room to pick what best fits your personal style! Stay soft with blush or bold with a deep pueple. The options are endless!
A commonly overlooked avenue to portray your personal style is through the use of paper goods--- save-the-dates, invitations, and thank you cards. There are so many options for personalization! Pops of your accent color and prints such as polka dots and stripes can really make a statement. Texture, such as a laser-cut lace look is another option. Many people choose to create an event logo such as type of monogram to get that signature look. Free handed illustrations and a stylish, modernized calligraphy are also a huge new trend in the industry!
A big thing to remember in stylizing your occasion is to be timeless, yet relevant. Trends change constantly, and your personal style is most important!
