Wedding Trends of 2015: What We’ve Seen at the Warrington

wedding trends of 2015Having trouble deciding on the look and feel of your wedding? Perhaps you don’t even have a theme picked out?

From centerpieces to card baskets, table seating cards to personal decoration ideas, here at the Warrington we quickly get a sense of what is trending in the wedding industry. Hopefully these ideas will spark some creativity within you for your big day!

Themes

It’s always a good idea to have a theme for your wedding, and many couples, of course, choose a theme based on their interests. For a really nice beach theme, for example, decorate with sea shells, treasure chest card boxes, and various shades of blue. The rustic chic theme has been trending lately — think burlap, wooden signs, window pane seating charts, and bird cages for cards. Downton Abbey themes with elegant and vintage decorations are also popular. What will be your theme?

Cake Toppers

Couples are steering away from the traditional kissing-bride-and-groom cake topper. Instead, cake toppers are better reflecting the couples’ interests, hobbies, and relationships with one another. A recent cake topper for a beach/boating themed wedding at the Warrington had the groom with a fishing rod, casting a line out to his bride below.  We’ve even had Mickey and Minnie Mouse for a Disney themed wedding. Find something that captures you and your spouse; it makes for a great keepsake after you cut the cake!

A Brief History of June Weddings

June has arrived already, and with that flip of the calendar page comes a whole lot of weddings. Many people associate June with being the most popular month to get married, but do they know the history behind it?

Everything's better when you share it with friendsGetting married in June dates all the way back to Roman times and the goddess Juno. Juno is considered the protector of women as well as the goddess of marriage. Because of this, June weddings were thought to bring the bride good luck.

From a more practical standpoint, June was when people took their annual baths. Sure, one bath a year seems gross now, but back then that was their way of life. Therefore, it made sense to get married in June when the couple and their guests were showered and cleaned up. Some people even say that the flowers helped to mask the odor. Also, people planned their weddings in June so that they could have their first baby the following spring. That way they would be able to help out with the fall harvest afterwards.

Of course, none of the above reasons are relevant to today’s marriages. So why is June still such a popular wedding month?

Mother’s Day at the Warrington Country Club: A Recap

Mother's DayThe Warrington Country Club hosted its third annual Mother’s Day Brunch on Sunday, May 10. It was a gorgeous day to celebrate mothers and all they do for their kids. This year was another success, as we served over 350 people a hearty brunch between 10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m.

No matter if you wanted breakfast or lunch, we had a great food selection to fulfill your appetite, prepared by our executive chef. From classic breakfast foods (home fries, sausage, bacon, and even an omelette station) to our filling lunch specialties (including smoked salmon, marinated vegetables, pasta salads and smoked pit ham), it certainly was not difficult for our guests to fill up a plate or two!

Most everyone, of course, made room for dessert, featuring our Viennese Sweet table with an assortment of French pastries, assorted cakes, homemade pies, cookies, and more.

This spring, we’ll host the Bucks County wedding ceremony of a lifetime. Will it be yours?

The Warrington County Club: It’s the ideal setting for your Bucks County wedding ceremony this spring

wedding ceremony bucks countyHere in the Greater Philadelphia area — Bucks County, Montgomery County and beyond — the months of June, July, August and September have traditionally been the most popular times of year for couples to tie the knot.

(Although as we discussed in a blog post last October, autumn weddings have lately been gaining in popularity as well.)

Spring, of course, has always been the most traditional season for weddings. Given the unbelievably chilly winter season we seem to have finally emerged from here in Bucks County, we can’t think of anything more uplifting and life-affirming than the wedding ceremonies we’ll be hosting this spring.

And in case you haven’t already heard, we’re currently in the process of putting the finishing touches on our stunning new foyer, which will feature a modern exterior and classic Greek columns. (See the photo below.) We expect it to be complete — and welcoming guests to spring ceremonies — in April. We can’t wait!

A Rave Review from a Highly Satisfied Newlywed

newlywedWe recently earned a rave review on TheKnot.com from a newlywed who was married at the Warrington Country Club on New Year’s Eve 2014.

We were so thrilled with the note that we wanted to share it with all of you:

Everything was perfect and stress-free. From the time we met with Sheryl to book and plan the wedding (which had a 3-month turnaround) to the day of the event, when Tracy happily and seamlessly coordinated every aspect of our day, we felt confident that everything was going to be perfect.

They are beyond professional, they actually enjoy what they do, and [they] tend to every request happily: room changes, time changes, decor, food requests…

On the day of the wedding, the facility was beautifully decorated from the holidays, the food was absolutely amazing, they gave us so many options to offer our guests, the servings were plentiful, and everyone had a blast.

I literally had nothing to do but show up and enjoy my wedding. I cannot thank them enough for providing a beautiful affair that our guests have been raving about ever since!!!

Why a Fall Wedding Should Be at the Top of Your Big Day’s Wish List

Fall foliage, harvest-themed fashion, and recent renovations at the Warrington Country Club

fall weddingEven if you’re still in the very beginning stages of planning your wedding day, you’ve probably already figured out that choosing a season for the ceremony, and then a specific month, should almost certainly be the very first step of your planning process.

According to The Knot, June, August and September are three of the year’s most popular wedding day months. Which shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise — the time-honored spring or summer wedding, after all, has long been thought of as a customary nuptial tradition. In some circles, it’s practically expected.

But we’d like to officially register our approval for a matrimonial trend that seems to be increasing in popularity with each new year: getting married in the gorgeously elegant season of autumn.

There are so many reasons to consider a fall wedding: The romantically crisp weather. The warm colors and flavors of the harvest season. An autumn-themed reception, complete with a roaring fireplace.

For your own planning purposes, here are a few more fall-season factors to bear in mind while putting together the details of your big day. Continue Reading Why a Fall Wedding Should Be at the Top of Your Big Day’s Wish List
