Ligh.ng is being used to take décor from preTy to STUNNING. LED-­‐lit vases and glowing centerpieces are great op.ons, along with light-­‐up tables and furniture, illuminated bars and even dance floors. -­‐ The Sands at Atlan.c Beach

Decorative Ceilings

A trend we’re loving is ceiling décor. Hanging flowers, crystals, parasols and lanterns are popular, while suspended glass orbs filled with flowers or themed details are dangling from chuppahs, trees and ceilings everywhere!
Unique Centerpieces

Many couples are also using vases of different shapes and sizes rather than one large centerpiece. Exotic Blooms
Backdrops & Props
Crea.ve backdrops are being used to add personality and style to the sweetheart table, photo booth or dessert table. Try decals, pinwheels, garlands, string lights or paper cranes.
The mason jar is being traded in for covered centerpieces like domed plaTers terrariums and apothecary jars. Fill them with flowers, desserts, or small objects. Succulents and other exo.c booms add texture and beauty to bouquets and centerpieces. -­‐Jazzflower

Invitations are your guests’ first peek into the type of wedding
they’ll be attending. Most couples take it as an opportunity to
reflect their personality, and many today are being a bit more
playful with their invitation designs.
Bold Colors
Classic wedding colors never go out of style, but the trend is all about color. Couples are adding a twist of bold color like citrus, coral or azure. What's on the fashion runway inspires invita.on design, with color blocking and green very much a trend. -­‐ Michael Zac Design Group
Unique Shapes

More and more couples are choosing invita.ons in modern shapes like squares or circles. Invita.ons with rounded or scalloped edges are also trending.
Laser Cut Designs

View Profile
Watercolor, and sob shades like pale pink, are also gaining popularity.
The laser cut technique con.nues to be a popular choice for wedding invita.ons because it adds such drama.c, luxurious effect. It gives a true wow factor when guests open it up, which is always what we strive for. -­‐ Ceci New York
Ceci New York
The technology of laser cut allows us to design extremely delicate, intricate paTerns into many parts of the suite -­‐ whether it's a sleeve, a bellyband or part of the invita.on itself. From ikat, floral, paisleys, gates, even the skyline of New York, it is a medium that allows for the ul.mate in ar.s.c freedom and beauty. Perfect for the couple seeking a unique, custom design. -­‐ Ceci New York

Many couples take their wedding as an opportunity to benefit
society. Through charitable actions and eco-friendly options, you
can make a difference.
A typical wedding produces between 400-600 lbs of garbage!

Donate Food
Donate Centerpieces
Many couples choose to forgo wedding favors and instead donate to a charity meaningful to them.
A wedding is a perfect opportunity to give back to those less fortunate. A great way to give back is by dona.ng your lebover food to local food banks!
Aber your wedding, you can donate your centerpieces and arrangements to synagogues, hospitals, nursing homes, or other loca.ons. You can also donate to Flower Power Founda.on, which re-­‐assembles arrangements and gives them to thousands of elderly, sick and terminally ill in NYC and LA.
Brides can also donate their gown to Brides Against Breast Cancer or Brides for a Cause.
Some venues also give back to the community. The Prince George Ballroom donates 100% of its net revenue to NYC outreach programs to help the homeless and others in need. 230 Fibh provides funding to m e d i c a l i n s . t u . o n s s u c h a s Memorial Sloan-­‐KeTering, New York-­‐Presbyterian and Lenox Hill.
Find a local food bank or food rescue opera.on at Feeding America.
You can also contact Special E, which "rescues" items leb over from special events such as flowers, centerpieces, décor and more, then repurposes them in ways that benefit our planet and people in need. Tzedakah Box by Joy Stember Metal Arts Studio -­‐ View Profile

Another way to go green is with your wedding sta.onery. Many companies provide recycled paper op.ons for invita.ons, save-­‐the-­‐dates, programs and other sta.onery.
