Every wedding season we see new and exciting trends emerge. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorites from this Spring.

Tropical Influences:
Charleston’s abundance of live oaks draped in Spanish moss can sometimes make us forget about the fun tropical influences that come with living on the coast! We love that couples have been incorporating foliage like palm fronds and banana leaves into their decor.

Comfort Food:
Wedding menus are looking much more casual these days! So many of our couples opt for favorite comfort foods in lieu of the traditional options. A few of B. Gourmet’s popular choices include Mini Tacos (with the always adorable clothes pin), and Mini Cheeseburgers!

Edible Favors:
Who’s junk drawer isn’t full of random knick knacks collected from parties over the years? We’re seeing many of our couples offering up a tastier favor for their guests. Anything from sweets, to bubbles, and more has us saying, yes please!

Flower Installations:
Florals always add a little extra pizazz to every venue. Overhead installations create so much drama in all the best ways. Living bars are also a fun design aspect we love seeing, your bar is probably the most visited area of your reception so why not give it that extra attention.

Away With The Cake:
More and more couples are shying away from the traditional tiered wedding cake in favor of a more playful dessert course. Donut towers, mini desserts, and ice cream pop ups are a just a few sweet options.
