Winter Wedding Trends

From the Slate at II Creeks blog: 

Each year, brides find new inspiration to make their weddings a personalized and fun experience for their friends and family. These days, just about every aspect of your wedding can be customized to fit your every need. With 2013 coming to an end, and the winter wedding season upon us, here are a few trends that are popular right now!

Food Trucks

Gourmet food trucks are becoming more popular around the country, and especially in the Dallas area. Now you can get just about anything from a food truck, from hamburgers to sushi to snow cones. Many couples are forgoing the traditional buffet or sit down meal, and instead renting out the services of a food truck for their guests to enjoy.

Signature Cocktails

While the idea of the signature wedding cocktail is not a new one, there is now a higher demand for craft cocktails thanks to the popularity of TV shows like Mad Men. Couples are now offering their guests more options than just the traditional beer, wine and champagne. There are even catering companies that offer specialty liquors, glassware and even hand-carved ice to make everything from an Old Fashioned to a French 75.

Everything DIY

Thanks to websites like Pinterest, many brides are taking things into their own hands when it comes to designing their wedding. Things like invitations, place cards, artwork and even mix CDs are simple enough to make yourself. This not only saves money, it also gives you more opportunity to truly customize your wedding to your exact specifications. You can even recruit your family and friends to help out for some added quality time.
