Trend Report from The Wedding Salon New York!

The Wedding Salon’s Spring Event in New York City is officially over and we have some amazing pictures to share with you! London won’t be the only city that gets to experience Royal Wedding luxury this week! We enjoyed some incredible trends first-hand from some of the top names in the industry.

The ultimate trend that was seen at The Wedding Salon was a mix of classic and modern a true homage to Kate Middleton. Flowers by Topaz showcased this perfect mix with a display of roses for the ultra classic bride mixed with orchids for the ultra-modern woman. Shades of black, yellow and white were another modern twist on a classic look.

Shawn Rabideau (of Bethenny Getting Married fame) also embraced the mix of traditional with modern by accenting antique china over an organic burlap linen.  Rabideau further highlighted the modern twist my mixing a variety of flowers including pansies, hyacinth and tulips underneath a cascading willow centerpiece.

Le Cirque revealed that although brides will always go for a classic sit down dinner, a huge trend in Summer 2011 will be the cocktail reception with passed mini-meals – Lobster Ravioli, Mini-Short Ribs, Mini Tuna Tartare and all the classic plates a bride and groom love but in a more informal setting. As for dessert, Le Cirqueexplained that brides are opting for more simplistic cakes, but instead choosing elaborate dessert displays with truffles, chocolate treats and macarons. Events by Devi of Top Chef Masters fame reiterated the huge trend of cocktail style receptions with brides opting for more Asian flavors.
