Wedding Industry Professionals forecasts trends for 2009

Sunday, February 8

WIPA, a wedding professional organization in California are forecasting the following trends for 2009:

  • Comfort food with a twist
  • No bread & butter plates positioned on tables (and we never want to see a pre-set coffee cup and saucer either)
  • Late night after wedding parties with favorite munchies that the newlyweds love
  • Destination weddings closer to home – not traveling on planes, perhaps within driving distance
  • Venues that have “sentimental affiliations,” such as a private girls high school that the bride once attended by day, which turns into beautiful mansion by evening for her wedding
  • Videos shorter in length that are cinematic and in high definition
  • Same day edit shown at the wedding after dinner, then streamed on the internet the following week
  • Contemporary music is making its way into ceremonies
  • Florals are repurposed and recycled
  • Color combos of platinums, whites, greens and blacks, in a variety of textures
  • Weddings are smaller, more intimate and “at home” feeling… goes with the comfort food!
