Tips for Planning Your Spring Wedding in Vancouver
To help you plan your dream ceremony, here are a few wedding trends for spring 2019.
A Pop of Colour
Couples are gravitating away from traditional, muted colour schemes, instead opting for bold colours. Vibrant shades of orange, yellow, purple, and red are now taking centre stage.
Couples are now opting for more genuine ways of expressing their gratitude toward their guests, including handwritten thank you notes and special “thank you” videos to guests.
Consider giving guests favours of the botanical variety, such as potted succulents, which require little maintenance, and packets of seeds that are significance to the happy couple.
Fresh flowers make for eye-popping cake decorations. Edible flower decorations, including sugar, buttercream, and gum-paste flowers, are also encouraged.
