For bridesmaids dresses, bold colors and brighter shades are popping up. Pinks, purples, greens and yellows are favorites.
The Food: For cocktails, bartenders are seeing a move to serving more classic cocktails including moscow mules, Pimm’s cup, and the sidecar. Having passed appetizers with a complimentary drink is also a popular choice. Such as mini tacos with a mini margarita. The nostalgic tiered wedding cake is coming back after years of cupcakes, pies and assorted desserts being favored. Having a nighttime passed dessert “hour” similar to cocktail hour is also seen as a great way to keep the party energy flowing. Local flavors are also a main event. Serving special local area foods and drinks is fun for the guests.
