Add to that bespoke illustrations and bold envelopes that will get the guests excited from the very moment they receive an invite.
Bold Wedding Dresses
Brides and their dresses have always been the centerpiece attraction in weddings. While you can never go wrong with experimenting different dressing options, vintage wedding dresses, sparkly gowns, breezy silhouettes, airy skirts, over-the-shoulder dresses, floral embellishments and minimalistic, neutral dresses combined with statement accessories are some of the popular trends today: more options here.
Wedding decor trends are going all natural: green. More to-be-wedded couples are ditching the traditional spring/summer wedding and opting to do their weddings in autumn which makes for a beautiful backdrop. You can never go wrong with a garden wedding, with its romantic setting and fresh florals.

Menus are also featuring local specialties and favorite foods. In addition to that, according to www.sweetservices.com wedding couples are also requesting for custom bites like candies for guests.
