Wedding trends are constantly evolving and changing. From colors and etiquette to sizing and favors. One of the larger trends emerging today is to have a simple, intimate wedding. Website YourTango recently announced this new wedding trend, and Do the Bride a Favor discusses how to keep your wedding simple and classic.
One of the major underlying factors in this trend is the age of brides and grooms. The age of the average bride and groom has increased in the past 60 years, and now hovers around the age of 29. Since many couples are already living together and self-supporting when they tie the knot, many forego the typical wedding showers. Additionally, many couples are saving up for a home and would choose to invest in a down payment rather than a wedding.
There are ways to maintain a one-of-a-kind feel to your wedding, however. Many smaller weddings focus on allowing the guests to enjoy the event, rather than focusing on the formality of a large affair. Keep things simple and personal by choosing a few key items to be hand-made or customized. This could include personalized bridal favors like a small package of red gumballs, or having the food at the wedding made by family members and friends. Enlist friends to help with facets of the wedding like being an emcee or usher.
Keeping your wedding intimate and special does not mean that you have to sacrifice the class or elegance of a larger event. Thinking outside the box when it comes to planning allows you to incorporate meaningful details into your big day. Enlisting family members and friends to help will create special memories you will enjoy for years to come.
Do the Bride a Favor comments on the newest trend in weddings, and how to keep your wedding simple, yet timeless.
