We’re Seeing a lot of Rose Gold Engagement Rings and We Sort of Love it

We’ve worked in the wedding industry for a long time, and in that time we’ve seen a lot of amazing trends and traditions.

An Alternative to the Bridesmaid Drape

It’s 55 degrees here in Houston today, and you know what that means: I could google winter in Texas memes all day. To be fair, it IS still officially autumn, but the cold front we’re having is definitely getting me excited for the winter weddings coming up.  Winter weddings in Texas are great because you … Continue reading An Alternative to the Bridesmaid Drape

Pinned vs Wrist Corsages

According to this poll on WeddingBee, people are pretty split between wrist corsages versus pinned corsages for wedding party attendants. While I can’t even recall what I made for dinner last night (thank you, motherhood),* I DEFINITELY can’t remember if my attendants wore corsages pinned on their dresses or worn on their wrists.**  My wedding … Continue reading Pinned vs Wrist Corsages

Current Wedding Trend Obsession: Juliet Cap Veils

It’s hard to believe that eight years ago, I was blogging about the vintage wedding trend, focusing on Roaring Twenties style.  Short, mysterious birdcage veils were all the rage. Now I’m obsessing over an even more vintage style (think 1500’s!) with the rise in sales of Juliet cap veils.  Named after the most famous Shakespearian … Continue reading Current Wedding Trend Obsession: Juliet Cap Veils

Wedding Trends 2017

Watching the ebb and flow of wedding trends over the years is one of the best parts of our job.  In years past, it seems trends would last 5-10 years for most not working in the biz.  Now, we can virtually attend hundreds of weddings in one sitting, thanks to our little ol’ friend Pinterest, … Continue reading Wedding Trends 2017

Silicone Wedding Rings

I was working out at a fitness bootcamp the other night (just gonna drop that there, all nonchalant, because I’m super proud of myself), and I noticed the trainer was wearing this bulky black rubber ring on his wedding ring finger.  The next night I noticed my workout buddy was wearing a pink one. I … Continue reading Silicone Wedding Rings

Wedding Lawn Games

The fun at a wedding reception doesn’t have to be reserved for the dancefloor.  Lawn games are taking over outdoor spaces at venues.  Bocci, cornhole, croquet, and jumbo jenga are a few we’ve already seen at Heather’s Glen.  For a playful touch, especially at brunch or tea-time weddings, consider strategically placing lawn games out for … Continue reading Wedding Lawn Games

Groomslady and Bridesman Trend

I came across this Wedding Wire article today, titled “7 Ways to be an Amazing Groomslady” and was intrigued.  While I’m sure many grooms have girl-friends (not “girlfriends” one word, am I right?), it never occurred to me that there wouldn’t be enough room on the bride’s side of the altar.  Unless, of course, a … Continue reading Groomslady and Bridesman Trend
