Geometric Shapes. First and foremost, this has to be one of our favorite wedding trends since the mason jar (which will forever remain in the top 10). The perfect combination of bold colors and delicate design, geometric shapes are a dynamic duo meshing the swanky elegance of the Art Deco era with the eclectic ambiance of the vibrant Southwest. Add vivid fondant cutouts to your wedding cake or design modern center pieces out of bold shapes & patterns- either way, you cant lose!*Geometric Inspiration provided by Ribbon Days Blog

Seasonal Spirits. Keep your guests cool, calm and (hopefully) collected with a variety of refreshing cocktails and warm-weather beverages for them to sip on throughout the big day! Providing your guests with a signature concoction before the ceremony or during cocktail hour is the perfect way to beat the heat & add a fun, personalized touch to your wedding day.*Customize your bar with a personalized Chalk Board Sign from Milk Banana Studio and Free Printable Drink Labels from Evermine blog
Planning Tip: If you’re planning on exchanging vows under the sun, keep your guests happily hydrated by setting up an infused water station at the ceremony location. Cucumber, strawberry, and mint are just a few of the many options to choose from. Flavored water stations are not only amazingly yummy, but aesthetically elegant as well!*Photo inspiration provided by www.thedrinkbusiness.com and Pen n’ Paperflowers Studio & Design
