We're Sweet on Vintage-inspired Trends
Here's a little wedding-trend test. What do these 2016 top bridal themes and elements have in common? Rambling gardens, formal elements from days gone by, love birds, steampunk, Victorian, Roaring '20s, rustic, fairytale, classic Disney and more all have a common undertone: vintage! Brides and grooms are gifting guests to timeless experiences as sweet as their love for each other, complete with wedding cakes and treats that deliciously serve as both decor and dessert! Just like fashion or music, cake styles follow pop culture trends. Dessert bars are on the rise, but smart brides are using them in addition to their cakes. Cutting the cake and saving the top tier to eat after one year of marriage are just two timeless traditions - we can even call them "vintage" - that are here to stay.

Florals with Creative Couture Design
Today's top trend: You! You can pour over wedding magazines and study Pinterest, but in the end, all that should really matter is that your Big Day be a reflection of your style and relationship. When it comes to florals, couples are influenced by their favorite colors, sentimental flower choices and design that coordinates with their personalities. In practice, this results in gorgeous layers of texture and color, uniting unusual greens with silk ribbon, draping foliage and bold and delicate blooms. The final creation is multidimensional and entirely unique - just like you! For a consultation, visit Celebrate Flowers & Invitations new beautiful location on Bouquet Canyon Road.

Country Chic Weddings with One-of-a-kind Rentals
"Outdoor," "country," "rustic" - whatever you call it, don't forget to call it "popular!" This trend has sparked a mad scramble for unique and one-of-a-kind elements like wine barrel decor, farm tables, country linens, vineyard chairs, market lighting and more. Over the last two years, AV Party Rentals Overhead Lighting division has tripled based on soaring demand and the SCV-based company has thoroughly expanded their diverse inventory of all things "country."

What's special about the offerings is that they allow the couple to begin with a blank slate. The expansive collection lets them pick and choose to see a unique idea through to fruition in their dream wedding. "Country chic" is often fused with modern or even ethnic items like Chinese lanterns to best represent the bride and groom's distinctive tastes, history and love.

Top 5 Things to Consider when Choosing a Wedding Venue
1. Is the venue full service or are you expected to bring in everything from the food to the tables?
2. Do they have a place for the ceremony and reception?
3. Do they have an on-site coordinator to help the day of?
4. Do they have a bridal suite?
5. Will you have the venue to yourself or will there be other events going on during yours?

Bridal Beauty Trend: Hair Extensions
The hottest trend right now is hair extensions that use the highest-quality Indian hair and last approximately two years. The extensions offer natural body or deep curly wave. It's an affordable option, can be custom colored and features Zerran's polish, shampoo and equalizing conditioner that leaves it feeling silky and natural. It's great for honeymoon swimming and other summer-fun activities.
