wedding planning tips 2010With the recession being part of our lives today, most brides and grooms are quieter in the way they project and plan their wedding. However, that doesn’t mean they can’t be “au courant”.  Minoo Hersini, Creative Director at Au Ciel Design Studio shares these great tips on how to be “in” for a 2010 wedding.:

  • Be selective of your guest list.  Include close family members and friends.
  • Find unique venues such as barns, art galleries, studios and homes instead of large ballrooms.
  • Chose communal tables (long table seating) verses individual 8×10 tables.
  • Use candles to substitute pin lighting.
  • Stick to some classics. Utilize a clean, floor length and high quality cotton tablecloth.To add flavor, use elongated mirror runners and different textures to create a mood.
  • Flowers are a key element for weddings. Work with creative floral designers to guide you through this process.
  • Chose menus that will reflect your way of eating.  Serve simpler and healthier dishes instead of heavy meals and have them sampled.
  • Incorporate natural elements for table decorations such as leaves, bark, branches, grass and moss intermixed with flowers.
  • Create a signature cocktail.  It is more fun and original than an open bar.

Lastly, simple elegant weddings require good taste and vision. Consult with professionals for ideas.
