Getting Married in 2017? Make Sure You Know CNY’s Wedding Trends and Cost
Monday, January 16, 2017 at 06:38 AM EST
NEW HARTFORD, N.Y. — Instead of black tuxedos, you may see more navy blue and gray at weddings this year.
“We’re introducing a new gray, Sharkskin, and we’re also introducing a new navy blue suit which are both dynamite for the wedding season,” said A. Vitullo’s Formalwear Manager Dale Cavoli.
“Anything but black. The brides want something different. They want to change it up and put their own spin on it,” Picker’s Elegant Occasions Owner Ashley Grabeldinger said.
Brides-to-be could see how to do just that at the Winter Bridal Faire at Yahnundasis Golf Club in New Hartford on Sunday. Vendors there said the style of wedding dresses may look a little different this year too.
“Straps are very ‘in’ which is different,” Grabeldinger said. “Used to all be strapless, but now there’s all types of straps, sleeves. Long sleeves are very ‘in’ this year too.”
New desserts are also being served.
“We are getting more towards the cupcakes with all the rustic weddings that are happening now so that’s gotten to be the newest trend,” Rolling Pin Coffee and Bake Shop Owner Gail Garrison said.
Another style of photography is becoming more popular.
“They like a photojournalistic look. Pictures of people that aren’t posed. They’re not aware of the camera. Those little moments between a mother and a daughter, you know, mom has got a tear in her eye,” said Gina Sciortino, the co-owner of Photography by Joseph.
One thing that hasn’t changed is weddings can still be expensive.
“I would say that if you were to consider a budget starting with $12,000 up through maybe $20,000. You know just to have a wedding and all the categories involved,” Match Marketing and BridalJunction.com Owner Renee Leininger said.
Wedding days can be expensive, but experts shared some tips on how to make planning more friendly for your wallet.
“Once in a while, depending if you do, so you book your rehearsal dinner as well as your wedding reception, a lot of times the venues will offer a discount or maybe throw in an hors d’oeuvre platter,” Candy Orbinati of the Roselawn said.
“Ask a lot of questions,” said Sciortino. “Be an educated consumer. Know what you want. Know what you’re looking for.”
An area wedding planner said it’s financially important to give yourself plenty of planning time, and suggests at least two years to do so.
Vendors say speaking with them at bridal shows is one of the best ways you can learn about what they have to offer.
If you missed Sunday’s event, the CNY Wedding Expo is coming up next weekend. That will be at Turning Stone Resort and Casino, on Sunday, January 22 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. ******************************************************* | January 11, 2017
Wedding reception trends 2017
1. Personalised Ice Creams
“This is the sweetest trend, in every sense of the word,” says Ashleigh Boileau from Champagne & Confetti Events. “Personalised ice-creams that reflect the favourite flavours of the bride and groom will go down a treat, especially during summer in Queensland. Check out the delish flavours – and gorgeous ice cream tricycle – from Wheel & Spoon.” Signature-flavour ice creams, gelato, waffle cones and sprinkles, all served by a uniformed attendant? Yes, please.
2. Strawberry TowersAccording to Alysia Bridger from Celebrations by Alysia, strawberry towers will grace dessert tables and lounge bars in 2017. “They’re total showstoppers: elegant, edible art that people also really love to eat.” Covered in things like white chocolate, tiny edible pearls and silver leaf, it’s easy to see why.
