More 2019 Wedding Trends

Brian Dunning - Wednesday, February 13, 2019


As 2019 takes shape, we start to see what trends are popular. This year, both the men and women in the wedding party will have more RELAXED choices.
FASHION: Why not choose a color and length (and maybe a designer for continuity) for your Bridesmaids and let them select a dress that flatters them, select a suit or blazer for the guys (navy is always a classic look) and tie that together with a gift of ties and socks. Best of all, they can wear it again.

COLORS: Burgundy, turquoise, and emerald green continue to show up everywhere. Couple with "garlands of greens" for the head table. The rich color tones that "Dahlias" offer will make it the "go to" flower this year. Creams, blush and champagne colors will always look elegant and incorporate one of the "moodier" colors (think burgundy) to stay on trend.

STATEMENT INVITATIONS: Choose an invitation suite that best represents the "two of you". This will tell your story from color scheme to important events in your lives. Tell your story with "special table numbers" and "seating cards".

REMEMBER: You are marrying the person you love. Make it YOUR OWN, but have fun with it

"Super" Brunch

Brian Dunning - Sunday, February 10, 2019

Our Sunday Brunch is always held on the First Sunday of each month. The date for our February Brunch fell on Super Bowl Sunday. It did not take too much thought to decide to use the New England Patriots for our decorating theme. Flowers, Fabrics, and Balloons were in Red, White, Blue and Silver. Our chefs really stepped it up with their amazing food art paying tribute to both Valentine's Day and our beloved Patriots. Best of all, the Patriots won the Super Bowl!!!
Why not make a reservation for our next brunch and explore putting our Independence Harbor Team to work for Your Wedding!!
