Wedding Trends From the Mansion Brides

July 20th, 2012

We love a creative bride and we get tons of them here at the Mansion, we thought we would share a few trends we love from our past weddings!

Tangerine Tango, the Pantone color of the year, is making its way into décor and wedding accessories and we couldn’t be happier! Katie and Dave incorporated the color throughout their wedding day and we especially like Katie’s orange and grey pumps and Dave’s orange striped bow tie.

Wedding gowns are a signature element for all brides- each and every one is distinctively different for each wedding we see. When we laid our eyes on Megan’s wedding gown all we could do was gasp, as this lovely gown is donned with texture and features ruffled layers that are simply to die for!

The vintage wedding trend is here to stay and we couldn’t be happier! Holly and Phillip chose the vintage, shabby chic theme for their Big Day and their reception tablescapes were perfection. Instead of using the typical vases to house flowers they chose to use teacups placed on matching saucers as well as silver teapots that were filled with to the brim with pink and white roses.

 Pretty packaging and typography are all the rage in weddings from invitations to favors. Seth and Laura jazzed up their favor boxes by adding a catching tag line in a beautiful font along with using twine to tie on seating assignments to each box as well.
