5 Wedding Trends For the Inspired Bride-to-Be

1. Make It Fun: Fun elements give a good-natured feel to your wedding day. For example, photo booths are becoming increasingly popular, and the props used can make the basis for your wedding theme. Props that represent the bride and groom’s personalities are great plus and can add some real color and interesting poses to the wedding photographs. Make sure to have tonnes of moustaches, luscious lips and top hats to finish off the theatrics! Transform the props into design ideas that can be incorporated throughout the wedding stationery, table decorations, etc.

2. Make It Posh: Candles and chandeliers are huge this wedding season and can add a mood and aristocracy to the reception. For outside events use hanging glass candle jars, Christmas lights and chandeliers dangling from the trees. Indoors, take advantage of high ceilings with extra special crystal chandeliers or create an indoor canopy of lights. Indoors or outdoors, be sure to suspend candles from tall floral arrangements or cluster candles in groups.

3. Make It…Pork?: The Entrée of the Year is Pork! Surprise guests and cater to the foodies with a main course that veers away from the expected beef or chicken offerings. Whether the wedding style is fun, chic, traditional, southern-style, elegant or funky, brides across the board are demanding elegant, restaurant quality, gourmet style menu offerings for their guests.

4. Make It Pop: The cake, that is. The dominating cake trend right now is clean and modern − with just one amazing pop of embellishment such as a bow, monogram or flower. The other major style takes the opposite tack, using eye-popping color or all-over appliqués. And finally, a traditional idea has come around again: Brides are requesting cakes that mimic wedding-dress details such as lace.

5. Make It Move: Gone are the days of the electric slide, that leads to the 1950’s set, followed by the 1980’s set, sprinkled with a few pop chart hits to get the crowd limping (or not) to the dance floor. Brides and grooms now want to mix genres and play everything from James Brown to Michael Jackson to Beyoncé in the same set and appeal to everyone at the wedding. Blending electronic music, Mumford & Sons, sexy Brazilian house and bossa nova is a refreshing change that really gets the party started. Another surprising trend is to have live musicians that play along with the DJ.

Fall in Love: Points to Ponder When Planning a Fall Bucks County Wedding

By nature, fall was custom-made for getting’ hitched.

Bucks County Fall Wedding at Warrington Country Club

Bucks County in the Fall

The brilliant colors that accentuate this special time of year– nestled between the end of the sweltering summer heat and the starkness of the winter frost are ready-made for a celebration. The rich vibrancy of fall hues of yellow, orange, burgundy and gold is a perfect launching point to create a magnificent indoor or outdoor Bucks County wedding.

As beautiful as fall is with the splendor of nature, there are certainly many challenges that must be considered when planning autumnal nuptials.

1. Variable fall weather:

  •   Autumn weather can be unpredictable. A warm and sunny afternoon and quickly turn down-right cold the moment the sun goes down. Prepare your bridal party for both extremes by choosing a layered ensemble. Be sure bare shoulders by the light of day can be quickly, and stylishly, covered when evening arrives. Remind your quests, via a wedding website or other forms of communication, to also be prepared for a changeable thermostat. If hosting an outdoor event, provide heating lamps or a fire pit to warm guests unaccustomed to those first blasts of chilly fall air.
  • Using seasonal flowers is an elegant strategy for keeping costs down, however, be ready should an early cold-snap send your snap-dragons out-of-season in an instant. Consider switching to hardier fall favorites such as Dahlias or chrysanthemums. Take advantage of the many beautiful fall fruits and vegetables, like crabapples and ornamental cabbage, to spice up the bouquet and venue.

2. Fall is a busy time of year.

  • Back to school, Labor Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving and several Jewish holidays can wreak havoc on a schedule. A little research and a save-the-date announcement delivered far in advance will go a long way in accommodating as many guests as possible.

3. As picturesque as fall foliage is, ragweed can steal the show.

  • Even if you or the members of your wedding party have never experienced the sneezing and watery-eyes associated with allergies, on your wedding day it is best to make like a boy scout and be prepared. This means having non-drowsy, over-the-counter antihistamine, tissues and eye drops on hand should an allergy attack arise.

4. You might want to take a pass on your mother’s pure white dress.

  • A bright white dress can clash among the deep, rich colors of fall. Consider an off-white variation to take full advantage of the season. Of course the day won’t be ruined nor your vows nullified should you choose to wear bright white. Just realize that it is these kinds of details that make the aesthetics of your day go from just “lovely” to a resounding “WOW!”

A Small Bucks County Wedding

Chances are astronomical that whenever a couple announces a new engagement, the conversation will swiftly turn to the breadth and width of the impending nuptials. While this knee jerk-reaction to the word “wedding” is understandable, one must remember that not every celebration of marriage must be measured in tonnage.

There is another way…Bucks County Wedding at the Warrington Country Club

The wedding coordinators at the Warrington Country Club are expert in planning a Bucks County wedding of any size. A small, more intimate celebration may be more preferable to the wedding couple than the big, splashy, event-of-the-century type of affair for a variety of reasons:

1. The budget is small—fewer guests, by its very nature, cost less. Or, if the couple is determined to indulge their guests with only the finest of culinary offerings, the couple can treat fewer guests like royalty and not blow the lid off the budget.
2. Creative freedom—a small event allows the couple to customize the day and fully express who they are. This kind of personalization tends to get watered down when the numbers on the invitation list goes up.
3. Emotional connection — with fewer people to contend with, the couple can spend more of their precious time with the very people who mean the most to them. Also, the guests in attendance feel welcomed, special and more intimately connected with the couple because, well, they made the cut…
4. Everyone can play – Requesting assistance with the minor tasks that come along with planning any event is an easier ask when the event is small, as opposed to asking for help with an event resembling the size of fleet week.
5. Creating an atmosphere that celebrates the guests as much as the wedding couple – Very few people make it to the alter without a parade of people behind them who helped get them along to this stage in life. Why should this day be just about the newly married couple? Fewer guests mean everyone is celebrated. Everyone is in the pictures, everyone has a chance wish the couple well, and everyone is attendance matters.

No waiting in a reception line, no impersonal “table 7” cards – Plan an event that is personal, intimate and memorable for all in attendance.

A Summer Outdoor Wedding Can Be a Dream-Come-True, With Advice from the Professionals at the Warrington Country Club

An outdoor summer wedding in Bucks County can evoke many romantic images. Bright and cheerful flowers arranged simply in vases filled with lemons and clementines, a bountiful menu Bucks-Montgomery County Wedding - Outdoor Ceremonyoverflowing with refreshing fruit and fresh vegetables, easy-breezy gentlemen sporting linen suits and perfectly manicured ladies in hot-pink sundresses topped off by wide-brimmed straw hats enjoying a cool cocktail. Sleeveless bridesmaids going barefoot and the stunning bride, wearing an elegant high-low dress (long and dramatic in the back, short and cool in the front), taking her vows as the orange sun sets behind her.

Or it can be a hot, sticky event from you-know-where.

Summer is a popular time for weddings, with approximately 37% of all weddings in the US taking place in the months of June, July and August. And, as the aforementioned summer dream wedding illustrates, summer can be a delightful time to host this most precious event. A summer wedding is not without its perils however and must be planned with the utmost care, and with the assistance of a professional, experienced with the special needs of a summer event. The staff at the Warrington Country Club are such professionals. They are knowledgeable about the planning and execution of the perfect outdoor summer wedding.

Here are a few tips to consider for a flawless outdoor summer wedding:

  1. Make a point to inform guests that lighter clothing is acceptable attire.
  2. Sunscreen is important every day, but on such a monumental day as your wedding, you will want to take extra precautions. You and your wedding party should experiment with different brands of sunscreen well in advance in order to find the correct brand that is non-greasy (to protect clothes as well as skin), non allergenic, does not have a strong aroma that could compete with the flowers (and other bridal party members) and sufficiently protects exposed skin over many hours.
  3. It goes without saying that summer is the busiest vacation time of the year. Save-the-date cards are vital when planning a summer wedding. Send out these announcements at least six month (preferably a year) in advance.
  4. Be mindful of the effects of heat and humidity on hair. Relax and let hair be hair!! Encourage your bridal party to plan a hairstyle that compliments their hair’s natural inclinations. Wavy hair will be even wavier and straight hair will want to fall flat in the heat and humidity. Advise anyone who cannot bear the thought of letting their hair be hair to consider an updo. A professional hair stylist and craft a style that is virtually impervious to any weather!
  5. Summer weather notoriously goes from sunny to stormy and back to sunny again in a matter of hours (sometimes minutes). Make sure there is adequate cover/protection should a summer storm suddenly blow in. Have decorative umbrellas available for guests should conditions unexpectedly turn soggy.
  6. Most importantly: remember that if it does rain on your big day—your marriage will be blessed with good fortune for a lifetime!
