Creative wedding décor trends

Leave a comment

Wedding décor trends always change – and while you definitely have the right to not adopt them, taking a closer look can surely provide you with some well-needed inspiration for the big day. What are the most creative wedding décor trends of the moment? We have some tips for you – so read on if you’re searching for fantastic ideas.

  • Hanging décor. Thought wedding reception décor is all about colors and tables? How about hanging some flowers from the ceiling? Or, even better, if you want to be a bit more playful, you can even hang cute-looking umbrellas to match your color scheme. Either way, doing this will add a special nuance to your entire space, making it more intimate and more “social”.
  • Lots (and lots!) of greenery. Remember when greenery used to be just an accessory to the blooming bouquets and arrangements? These days, greenery has a statute of its own – and you can use it with as few floral elements as you want. Oh, how much energy and liveliness this will add to your entire wedding day!
  • Pick-any-seat. Tired of moving people around in your seating chart? As it turns out, it’s really popular these days to simply encourage guests to mingle and sit wherever they are most comfortable. Give this a try and you won’t regret it.

Bridesmaid dress color inspiration

Leave a comment

As you may very well know it, colors are extremely important – both from an aesthetic point of view, as well as the message they send out. Choosing the perfect color for your bridesmaids’ dresses is quite important for the success of your entire wedding.

How to do this? What are the latest trends in bridesmaids’ dresses colors? We have some tips for you – read on and find your inspiration.

  • This color is filled with energy and femininity at the same time – which is precisely why it is perfect for your bridesmaid’s dresses (especially if you plan to have a warm season wedding). If you believe mint has been overused in the last couple of years, pistachio is a superb option to replace it.
  • Lively and more than summer-y, turquoise is the kind of color that can add shine to every bridesmaid’s appearance. Ideal for beach weddings, but more than perfect for just about any other spring or summer wedding theme, turquoise is a color you should definitely look into.
  • Glacier gray. Looking for a stunning neutral for your bridesmaids’ dresses? Glacier gray is elegant, sophisticated and quite unique as well. Plus, it’s easy to accessorize and it looks really pretty on the vibrant background of a spring or summer wedding.
  • Strawberry ice. If you want your bridesmaids to be dressed in a color full of life and beauty, if you want them to be stylish but just a bit feminine, and if you love the softness of pink but would like to see your special ladies something more special, strawberry ice is for you!

Top tips to planning a large wedding

Leave a comment

Wedding planning can be a great source of stress when you don’t know how to actually organize all of the details. So, what happens if you want to plan a large wedding? What are the absolute essentials to keep in mind before you do anything? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  • Find the right venue. This is absolutely crucial! Of course, your venue should be pretty and it should go well with your idea of a dream wedding. But most importantly, it should accommodate each and every guest invited. Please note that you shouldn’t book a smaller venue thinking some guests won’t show up or even send their RSVPs – you really need to account for every single invitation you’ve sent out.
  • Provide them with good entertainment. There’s nothing worse than a huge room filled with a lot of bored out people. Make sure your guests have their dances, their food, their drinks, their games, their photos, and everything else you may have in mind for their entertainment.
  • Avoid DIY bars. Yes, they are very trendy and they are quite fun – but not when there are tens and even hundreds of hungry people storming through the DIY bar. You really don’t want to have to deal with the mess that would ensue, right?
  • Want to save some money? Drop the wedding favors. None of your guests actually care about these – as long as they have fun at the wedding, they will be more than happy without the customized cookies, fridge magnets, or mason jars.

Tips for choosing a wedding ring for your groom

Leave a comment

Wedding rings are not just pieces of jewelry – they are statements of commitment and love, and the very symbol of an eternal care you vow to bear for each other. Naturally, you will want to choose splendid and meaningful wedding rings – and if you have to choose your groom’s, you will also have to make sure you settle on a design he absolutely loves.

What are some of the top tips for choosing a wedding ring for your groom? Read on and find out more.

  • In general, white gold is the most commonly spread option for wedding rings (and engagement rings as well). The good news is that grooms now have many more options and don’t have to settle on a very basic wedding band anymore – leaving you with more variants to choose from as well.
  • If you are looking for a sound financial investment, 14k gold (yellow, white, or even rose) is the best choice to make. It is affordable enough to be suitable for a lower budget wedding, but it also provides value and talks about the style and classiness.
  • Furthermore, keep in mind that you have other options when it comes to the metal the wedding ring is made from. Aside from yellow gold and even silver, you can always settle on a tungsten ring. Very scratch-resistant and with a very masculine finish, this type of metal has grown in popularity over the course of the past few years – and not without reason.

Avoid these mistakes when planning your wedding

Leave a comment

When it comes to wedding planning, nobody knows how to pull it off perfectly from the very beginning. What you can do is to stay informed and learn from the pro’s (and from other previous brides).

For example, do you know the most common mistakes to avoid when planning your wedding? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more:

  • Not hiring a makeup artist. Of course, you know how to do your makeup on a daily basis, and even for special occasions. But believe us when we tell you that you will be so jittery and nervous on the morning of your wedding that you won’t be able to actually do your makeup, no matter how much experience you may have.
  • Buying the dress online. We all know those websites in China – but what many people don’t know is that those orders rarely turn out as planned. If you want to avoid a complete wedding dress disaster when your Big Day’s knocking on the door, go to a salon and actually try on the gowns you are considering.
  • Buying the accessories first, before you actually buy the wedding dress. Although it may seem tempting to jump to all those superb accessories first, the truth is that knowing what dress you’ll wear is very important when choosing the jewelry and the other accessories.
  • Ordering too many invitations. Try not to order more invitations than you need – it is costly, and, overall, it is a complete waste of paper.

Food Art Inc. can help you plan the most beautiful wedding ever – so if you are searching for someone in the New Orleans, come visit us and let’s have a talk. With us on your side, your wedding day will be truly and utterly unforgettable!

Beautiful ways to display photos at your wedding

Leave a comment

Many times, pictures speak more than a million words – so why wouldn’t you want to include older photos of you (or long lost ones) in your wedding? We have some tips for you – so read on “steal” inspiration from the most beautiful ways to display photos at your wedding.


  • Place a picture of you or someone you love on each of the tables, as part of the wedding centerpiece arrangement. Doing this will add a nice touch to your wedding, and it will make your love story pop with style. From larger frames right at the entrance into the reception venue to small framed pictures placed here and there, anything goes.
  • Rustic chic. Planning a rustic/country chic wedding? If yes, make sure the pictures you use for the décor are updated and framed according to your wedding theme. Burlap photo lines, wooden support for more photos, and even pallets and trees can be excellent supports for your most candid and prettiest pictures.
  • On an old window. If you want your wedding décor to be really unique, try to find an old-school window and stick the photos to its glass. Looking back into your memories through the windows has never been so attractive and beautiful!
  • Hanging by balloons. Want to create a magical, playful décor at your wedding? Tie photos with the ribbons you use for helium balloons. The pictures will look as if they were suspended in time – so amazing!
