The En Vogue Bride: Trends For The Bride That’s Ahead Of Her Time
Feb 01, 2017 11:16 AM Back
It’s a new year…and that means new ways to make YOUR day memorable and new and exciting ways to do it.

Here are some suggestions on how to put a new twist on some of the prevailing trends:

1. Cocktails With A Classic Twist: Say goodbye to cutsie cocktails with like Nikkitini or Maryrita…and hello to fresh, fabulous, artisanal drinks that are inspired by the season and the classics.

2.  Serve Up Some Sophistication and Elegance: Along with classic cocktails, the 2017 couple should strongly consider a more “traditional” style sit down dinner. Do away with buffets and family style meals and allow your guests “to be served”. Want to incorporate some “famiglia” in your fete…consider working with a seasoned (pun intended) chef to put a gourmet twist on some of your family favorites and them have them elegantly plated…and name it Nona Francesca’s Lasagna on the menu.

3. Bring Basic Back: Sure you can incorporate some of your favorite things think rustic accents and boho embellishments… but 2017 is all about being stylish, chic and “keeping it clean”….and NOT kitchy. Think simple and classy. Get inspired by the the glitz and glam of days gone by where less was more when it came to making a statement.

4. Make a Signature Statement: While wearing white is what’s red hot right now…think about adding some color to your white wedding. Think adding a signature color to your ensemble, to what your groom and your bridal party are wearing and even to your décor.

5. Go Formal or Go Home: There’s nothing wrong with “daring to be different” but when it comes to wedding day style, expert stylists say that 2017 is all about streamlined sophistication and classic elegance.  No more converse sneakers or cowboy boots with tuxes or suits…instead step it up and step out in true gentleman and ladylike fashion.
