1. In: Clean & Elegant, Out: Over the Top

For all of you Brides who don’t have a million dollar budget, this is fantastic news.  Contrary to what celebs think, you do not have to spend a fortune on your wedding decor.  The key is to invest in a fantastic venue that you love in itself so that you don’t have to transform it with draping, lighting, flowers, mirrors, special effects, etc.  Clean lines and simplicity are IN!

2. In: Hanging Centerpieces, Out: Centerpieces on the table

So this is if you are the ultimate “trendy bride.” Obviously centerpieces on the table are not “out,” but if you want to take your decor up a notch and really wow your guests, you’ll defy gravity with your centerpieces.

3. In: Escort Card Table, Out: Escort Card Wall

This is another one that’s for the very trendy, current Bride.

4. In: Photo Booth, Out: Favors

Favors are being phased out, and entertainment is in!  Instead of sending your guests home with a favor that may be left on the table, provide them with some great entertainment the night of your wedding!  Whether this is a photo booth, or an amazing band, it will go a long way and will ultimately make your wedding more memorable.
