Hilton Head Weddings and Bridal

Cater to the ones you love

When planning a wedding, one area you won’t want to overlook is the food. Next to how the bride looked or how great the entertainment was (or wasn’t), the food that is served at weddings is one of the top talked-about topics among guests. Your wedding reception is one giant party, and at your party, you want guests going home feeling full and catered to. If you are hosting a wedding on Hilton Head Island or elsewhere in the Lowcountry, rest assured that our local professionals have you covered with top-notch cuisine and innovative ideas. Get ready for your mouth to water (and be prepared to run to the kitchen!). Monthly has you covered with all the latest in food for weddings.

Bridal Trends for Spring 2015

0215-Bridal-Trends

Bursting onto the wedding scene this spring are so many new and exciting trends.

From all aspects of their weddings, couples are finding more ways to innovate and excite their guests and make the day truly special and their own. Move over burlap, lace, mason jars and wedding design comprised only of champagne, blush and gold. Enter a modern, more eclectic vibe. Can we get an “amen”?
According to Hannah Baker, associate wedding style editor of Brides Magazine, "In 2015, the biggest trend we are seeing is that rustic and vintage are out and are being replaced by a sleeker more modern aesthetic.  Instead of mason jars and wood accents, we'll be seeing more unique, statement installations on a grand scale. It's still important to brides to personalize their wedding décor, but they are finding bolder ways to do it."
