Long Tables with Linen
In years past, we saw a huge trend in long wood farm tables at your reception instead of the classic rounds. This year, we're seeing a twist: many couples are opting to having long tables and are adding linens of all varieties to them. This is the perfect option for the couple who want the family style dinner with a classic look. Adding linens dresses up the table effortlessly and creates a perfect ambiance during the reception.
Bringing Back Simple Elegance
Simple wedding dresses are definitely becoming one of the hottest wedding trends of 2019. Sometimes the simplest elements can make the boldest statement on your big day. The classic white gown is one of our favorite ways to show off the bride's natural beauty!
Hungry anyone? Grazing stations are quickly becoming the go-to alternative to a tray-passed hors d'oeuvres option at cocktail hour. This is a fun way to treat your guests to both a "wow" moment and a variety of food options that fit their personal preferences. Grazing Stations also create a perfect mingling moment for everyone while giving your reception space a nice pop of color!

Smaller Bouquets with Hanging Ribbon
In past years we saw bouquets trending toward full, large and extravagant. Although we do love lavish floral arrangements, we are adoring this new trend of smaller, simpler bouquets and body flowers. Having smaller bouquets keeps the focus on the bride, her party and their beautiful dresses. Adding a hanging ribbon to the bouquets can add that perfect accent color and a fun textural element to photos.
