3. Unique Venues: There is so much more to your venue than just a space.Select a venue that tells a story. It should represent you and your personalities as a couple, and should be flexible enough to accommodate all your needs. Plus, selecting a venue that’s beautiful in its own right means less decorating for you and your crew. (Photo by Jolie Images)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. Interesting Rentals. Unique and vintage rentals are huge right now. One top trend is amazing colored glass. It adds something new and bright to every table. Interesting chairs are also gaining in popularity. Why not rent a special “king” and “queen” chair to stand out among a sea of Chiavari chairs? For more casual weddings or cocktail hours, an area with comfortable lounge seating is perfect. And when it comes to linens, texture is in. (Photo by Joseph Kang Photography)

 

 

 

5. Small Bites: Serve small bites of all the foods you love so your guests can get a taste for your favorite flavors. Small samples allow you to offer a wide variety of foods, and guests get the opportunity to try a little bit of everything. Whether passed by servers or served up on platters, small bites are a fun way to whet the appetite before dinner. Or keep the fun going and do hors d’oeuvres all night long.
