Leave a comment

As a couple-to-be-married, you want every single detail of your wedding day to be fantastically well-planned. You want delicious foods on your plates, a gorgeous dress to complement your style, and a truly stunning décor to coordinate with your wedding theme too.

What are some of the most important upcoming wedding trends to inspire you in planning a wedding that’s unforgettable from all points of view? We have gathered them below – so read on and find out more.


  • Naked cakes will continue to rise in popularity – and if you have been thinking of the idea, you can definitely embrace it in the upcoming wedding season too. Decorate your naked cake with fresh flowers and fruit and guests will love its looks just as much as they will love its amazing taste!
  • In terms of wedding gowns, future trends seem to focus on metallic shades and lacy designs. What could be more glamorous, more feminine and more beautiful than these trends? And the best part about them is that they are virtually perfect for just about any type of wedding theme you may settle on!
  • Wedding photographers will put a lot more emphasis on naturalness and spontaneity – so you can expect to see less “staged” wedding photos and more spontaneous, candid wedding pictures.
  • In 2016, we have seen more and more seasonal and local flowers taking over the wedding world – and we can expect to see more of this in the upcoming months too. Furthermore, centerpieces will get more varied, with different types of centerpieces brought together in the same wedding décor – and even on the same tables too. So much room for creativity!

These tips will help you plan a great honeymoon

Leave a comment

While many couples focus a lot on planning the perfect Big Day, it is also important to keep in mind what comes after it as well. What will you do on your honeymoon? How to make this special vacation truly unforgettable? What are the questions to ask yourselves before you even start searching for solutions for your honeymoon?

We have gathered some of the most important tips all couples should keep in mind- so read on and find out more.


• First off, where will you go? Do you want to visit an entirely new exotic place? Or maybe go somewhere far North and explore the beauties there? Maybe you want to visit a place you’re already familiar with, or a place that’s meaningful for your relationship? You have a world full of options – literally! Choose the one that suits you most.

• Furthermore, when will you go? Of course, you can take the traditional route and embark on your honeymoon right after the wedding. But you can do it any other time too, especially if you want to travel in a different season, or if you simply want to take some time after the wedding to breathe in, enjoy married life and thoroughly plan the honeymoon without stressing over the wedding too.

• Last, but surely not least, how long will you be away? Do you want this to be a month full of relaxation and fun? Or do you want to take a shorter break now and then maybe a couple of weeks several months from now? Again, the choice is yours and yours alone, so talk things through with your loved one and see what option fits you best.

Choose the best music for your big day

Leave a comment

Music is an important part in our lives. From being a really big part of our culture to being a big part in our most special events, music follows us everywhere you go – so it is only natural to want your wedding music to be just as amazing as the rest of the big day.

How to choose the best music for your wedding? What are some of the best trends going around when it comes to this? Here are some wonderful suggestions to inspire you:


  • Hiring both a wedding DJ and a band. If you can’t decide between the two and if you want to end the age-old debate, then simply settle on both of them. You can hire the band for the ceremony and the DJ for the reception and it will be more than acceptable to do so.
  • Having a Last Dance. While the tradition of the First Dance is very well-rooted in our weddings, having a Last Dance is a bit less common. However, as of lately, more and more couples have chosen to plan this special moment too – and if you want to make your exit even more spectacular and emotional, a Last Dance can be a really great idea.
  • Acoustic performances. Have you decided to hire a band for the reception too? If so, see if you can find someone who can provide you with an acoustic performance. It will add so much to the ambiance of your wedding reception, making it more “raw”, more beautiful and more unforgettable!

Choose a date for your wedding with ease

Choosing a wedding date is one of the first and foremost important decisions you will have to make when planning the Big Day. Therefore, you will definitely want to do this the right way – especially since your wedding date will have a huge influence on other wedding elements too.

How to do it? How to choose your wedding date with ease? Here are some tips to help you with this:

  • What season do you want to choose for your wedding? Are you more of a summer couple, or would you much rather get married in a winter wonderland? Maybe even more importantly, is there a season or a time of the year that’s especially meaningful for your relationship (e.g. the time when you met for the first time)? Consider these factors.
  • Do you think there is a time of the year when your guests may find it easier to reach your wedding? This is a very important element to think of especially if you plan on having a destination wedding or if you know the majority of your guests will have to travel to your wedding location (which they may not find so easy during the holiday season, for example).
  • Last, but definitely not least, do you want your wedding to take place during the week, or in the weekend? If you want to save money, and have a more unique type of wedding, you might want to opt for a daytime wedding, or for a wedding that happens during the week.

These love quotes can provide great inspiration for your wedding vows

Love is a sentiment that transcends everything mankind has ever known: space, time, borders, and even knowledge itself. It is precisely for this reason that love has inspired so many artists, so many writers and so many musicians to create beauty that grasps at least a small part of the complexity of the most amazing feeling a human being can feel.

Your wedding vows are extremely important to you – so why not take inspiration from some of the most well-known love quotes out there, and create vows that are meaningful, unforgettable and genuinely emotional? Here are some ideas you could use:

  • 1 Corinthians 13:4-8. “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”
  • Lana del Rey. “When someone else’s happiness is your happiness, that is love”.
  • Tyler Knott Gregson. “Because of you I can feel myself slowly but surely becoming the one I have always dreamed of being”.
  • Maya Angelou. “In all the world, there is no heart for me like yours. In all the world, there is no love for you like mine.”
  • Albert Einstein. “You can’t blame gravity for falling in love.”
  • Jackson Brown, Jr. Sometimes the heart sees what is invisible to the eye.”

Searching for someone who will help you the wedding you have always wanted? The Big Day that’s not only flawless from an organizational point of view, but also meaningful, personal and absolutely unforgettable? Contact Food Art Inc. and we will be there to provide you with our professional New Orleans wedding planning services!

These bridal beauty tips will have you looking gorgeous on your wedding day

As a bride-to-be, you want to be the most gorgeous woman that has ever walked down the aisle. You want to be more than pretty – you want to be radiant, stunning and truly amazing from all points of view.

Truth be told, beauty will always be in the eye of the beholder – so you can rest assured that your loved one will always see you as the prettiest girl at the ball. And yet, if you want to feel great in your own skin for the Big Day, here are some useful bridal beauty tips for you:

  • Your beauty preparation starts now. Believe us, the long-term changes can go a very, very long way when it comes to making you feel really beautiful. Stop biting your nails, grow your hair if you want to, apply a very good cream on your face, start working out and eat healthier. These are the kind of changes that will make you radiate beauty from within.
  • Remember: trying new looks before the wedding is, most of the times, a very bad idea. Sure, that fiery red may look amazing on you – but if it doesn’t, you might find there’s not enough time to get rid of it. If you want to make a big change before the wedding, do it at least a few months in advance, so that you have enough time to switch back if you don’t like it.
  • Careful with that spray tan! It is definitely more advisable to get a bit of spray tan than to stand in the sun, but keep in mind that just a little is what you need. Going too crazy on the fake tan will not look good on anyone.
  • Last, but not least, remind yourself to create a bridal look that accentuates your most beautiful features. Big, sparkly eyes? Choose a makeup style that emphasizes on that. Beautifully arched lips? Settle for a lipstick that will make that pout really pop with grace and elegance.

Create a beautiful summer wedding by following some quick tips

As we enter into summer, you might be one of the brides preparing for the much-expected Big Day. And while you surely have plenty of reasons to love summer (and to have settled on a summer wedding date), the truth is that there may still be some things you might have not considered when planning the Big Day.

No worries! There are plenty of small additions you can make last-minute to make your summer wedding truly comfortable and unforgettable for everyone there! Read on to find out more.

  • Order some extra flowers. Even with the highest attention to detail and even by choosing flowers that are highly heat-resistant, there may still be some flowers that cannot withstand the temperature outside. This can be easily solved by simply ordering some extra flowers (for the boutonnieres, for example). After all, it is better to stay on the safe side, rather than worry about this!
  • Offer refreshments for the guests. Wedding planning can be really stressful – so it is understandable if you have left some things slip away. One of the issues you absolutely have to handle though is that of the water and refreshments. The last thing you want is to make your guests feel sick due to dehydration!
  • Get some bug-repellent weapons. Insect bites are nasty, they can be really annoying and they can definitely ruin a guest’s party mood – so keep the fliers away from yourself and your loved ones by providing everyone insect repellent sprays. Also, remember that there are various natural ways to keep bugs away too – such as citronella candles, for example. If your venue allows candles inside, these ones would be a great choice!

Food Art Inc. is a wedding catering and wedding planning service provider in New Orleans. But even more than that, we are a team of highly-dedicated professionals, in love with making love stories come to life in every wedding we work at. So, if you are looking for a caterer or planner in the area, be sure to contact us as soon as possible!
