We caught up with Kristy from Milestone Events to get her opinion regarding wedding trends she is seeing for this year and into the next. The first trend she commented on involves choosing the perfect season for your dream wedding. “We totally feel that October is the new June!” she said. It appears that more and more brides are opting for an autumn wedding, which has definitely become a popular trend among the NYC brides.
We are now beginning to see a younger generation of brides and with that comes the desire for a great party. Traditional wedding “programs” i.e. the bouquet toss, dances, etc., now seem to be taking a back seat, while brides are really focusing on having a great bar and entertainment to keep the party going throughout the night. This generation is starting to do cocktail style receptions with 50-60% seating, allowing the rest standing to mix and mingle and indulge in bite sized passed appetizers and easy to eat food stations with a unique flare. Presentation has become key!
Lastly, Kristy also noted that there have been many more outdoor weddings where couples are having them in gardens, boats, backyards, and barns (very shabby chic). Even brides doing weddings inside are looking to incorporate some sort of outside element.
