Chicago (PRWEB) April 01, 2013
As the average cost of a wedding reaches $28,000, Revelry Alliance, a new Chicago-based service matching brides with the best wedding vendors, watches the latest trends, helping busy, on-the-go brides design the most fashion-forward, stylish weddings, while keeping an eye on the bottom line.
This year, peach colors and lace are at the top of brides’ design wish lists, edging out the traditional white silk satin. And, as weddings become all-day affairs, guests are delighted with the addition of late-night snacks; well after the last piece of cake is served, guests can power their dancing with small treats, both sweet and savory, such as sliders and taco bars.
“We’re seeing a strong shift in what brides are wearing. They’re looking for more unique, less traditional gowns while maintaining a bridal look,” said Sarah Matteson, co-owner of Revelry Alliance. “We’ve seen peach show up as a great alternative to pink, in flowers, décor, accessories and more. It’s less ‘girly’, but still romantic.”
“We’re also seeing caterers become less traditional, with whimsical treats for late night snacking. With a nod to fun, traditional Chicago fare, some of our favorites include Italian beef sammies and Frango Mint hot chocolates,” added Amanda Wagner, co-owner of Revelry Alliance.
Revelry Alliance is seeing new and interesting trends happening for the ambience of weddings, too. Couples are bringing the outdoors in as well as incorporating industrial elements into their reception designs, to make the wedding day more customized and less traditional. Bride and groom are celebrating their newly joined status with monograms, combining their styles and personalities. Specially designed monograms are showing up on more than just invitations, such as on wedding menus, favors, lighting concepts and personal stationary.
Matteson and Wagner have been watching bridal trends for years and created Revelry Alliance to help busy brides find wedding vendors that best match their style, budget and personalities – everything from caterers to floral companies and more.
