Wedding Trend: Metallics + Sequins

A trend that has emerged from the Art Deco influence we’re seeing this year is the use of metallics and sequins in wedding details and décor. Touches of sparkle and shine add an element of glamour and opulence to your wedding, enhancing the occasion’s formality and timelessness.

Pairing metallics with a neutral colour palette is glamorous without being overdone. For a more bold look, add a dash of sparkle to a colourful palette. Mixing metallics? Absolutely – we love this! Don’t be afraid to combine various tones such as a brassy gold with rich pewter or rose gold combined with copper.

Here’s some shiny wedding inspiration to brighten your Monday!

Wedding Trend: Art Deco

A noticeable trend this year in design – whether in fashion, interiors or events – is a return to the rich colours, bold geometric shapes and lavish ornamentation of the Art Deco era. We’re even seeing this on the big screen with this weekend’s release of one of the most highly anticipated films of 2013, The Great Gatsby.

Whether you’d like to incorporate a few touches from the era or have a completely Art Deco themed wedding, here’s some eye candy for inspiration!

The Special Event Show 2013

Last month I attended The Special Event Show in Chicago, IL. In addition to numerous educational seminars and networking opportunities (read: nightly social events!), there was a lot of design inspiration which is what I’d like to share with you today.

This first table design is one of my favourites – glamorous yet streamlined with a palette of black, gold and a pop of emerald, Pantone’s colour of the year.

I love the multi-layered centrepieces featured below:

This room by Kehoe Designs (shown below with the exception of the cake) was a highlight for me. Every detail was carefully thought out and the overall result was timeless elegance at its best.

Ombre Floral Table Runner

This ombré floral table runner made a huge statement! It would be perfect for a ‘wow’-factor head table. Below, this colourful floral wall was so much fun to see in person and it smelled amazing!

Cheers to beautiful inspiration!

Inspiration to Reality: Kristy + Joe

A lot goes into the wedding design process at Jennifer Bergman Weddings. We begin by determining a bride and groom’s wedding style – the look they envision, the atmosphere and feelings they want their event to evoke, the level of formality, etc. We then create visual inspiration boards and detailed budgets. Once we’re all on the same page we execute, securing rental and décor items, collaborating with a florist to design centrepieces and bouquets, and working with a stationer to create the couple’s invitations and reception stationery to perfectly reflect their wedding style.

As we’re nearing the end of our 2012 wedding season, it’s so exciting (and rewarding) to see the professional photos from our clients’ events. Before showing you some of this season’s jaw-droppingly beautiful weddings, we’ll first share the design boards behind them so you can get a glimpse at how we take inspiration and make it reality.
