Much like fashion, weddings consist of an ever changing sense of style, sometimes based on season! Chicago weddings can be preppy, edgy and modern, hipster and ironic, glamorous, designer, casual chic, or even country. The options are endless and much like shopping, creating a wedding style requires the conscious pairing of stylish pieces.
To choose the perfect outfit you consider the weather, where you're going, who you'll be with, and then you go from there! To design the perfect Chicago wedding you'll consider the season, your venue, and your desired ambiance, and then choose your linens, chairs, flowers, lighting, print materials, and music!
Like fashion, Chicago wedding planning is full of trends. Wedding trends come and go but a few stick around season after season. Be U Weddings, a favorite Chicago wedding blog, recently gathered the opinions of Chicago wedding planners on trends with sticking power. Chicago wedding planners declared their love for photo booths, mismatched bridesmaids, and late night snacks, all great wedding trends! Check the blog post out here.
The Chicago wedding planners at Big City Bride said: “As wedding planners, we believe the bride and groom, their family and guests deserve to completely enjoy the event. It’s hard to take a moment to let the reality soak in that it’s the wedding day but it is so important! There is no better way to do so then to relax at a lounge vignette and kick up your dancing feet for just a minute. No matter the style or theme of your wedding, providing couches and settees gives your guests areas to gather and truly enjoy the day you’ve planned."
Adding rugs, small floral arrangements, and pillows can make your wedding lounge area a perfect accessory to your event. It can be beautiful and comfortable, it's therefore absolutely a trend you'll be seeing for years and years to come.
Thank you to all these talented Chicago wedding photographers for capturing these beautiful wedding lounges and the many special moments and details of the day.
