Wedding Guide for the Modern Bride


We love talking trends with our wedding professionals, such as color schemes, design ideas, fashion looks, and food trends to inspire you lovely brides for one of the most special days of your lives. Grand Central Party Rental recently gave us some great insight for 2016 weddings, and we hope you enjoy these lovely ideas for your wedding day!

Grand Central Party Rental mentions some beautiful, popular color schemes for your 2016 wedding. Shades of pink, blue, charcoal, and metallic hues, like gold and silver, are very popular this year. We love how metallic elements create a modern appeal that makes your wedding pop.




Farm tables are being frequently requested for Middle Tennessee weddings this year. Brides are dressing the farm tables with fabric runners, runners made out of greenery, and mixing individual candlestick holders or mismatched vases in various sizes on top of the tables. This looks absolutely gorgeous at a rustic styled wedding in Tennessee.

Lighting is such a special element in your wedding design. Many brides are choosing chandeliers hung in barns, trees, and gazebos for a romantic display. Italian string lights are also very popular in outdoor tents and trees.




When it comes to fashion, a lot of brides are giving their bridesmaids the option to pick the dress that they love and feel beautiful in. The bride might choose the color scheme and let the bridesmaids pick out their own flattering dresses or even allow the ladies to wear different colors.

Food stations remain very popular for 2016 wedding receptions. A very popular option is a mac & cheese station served with several toppings to choose from. Carving stations and interactive stations are very popular as the chef prepares a dish right in front of the guests. Many couples are also opting for dessert stations and ice cream stations instead of the traditional wedding cake. 




We love these 2016 wedding trends, and the option to follow or bend wedding traditions as much as the couple wishes! We hope these wonderful ideas from Grand Central Party Rental inspire you along your wedding planning journey! Cheers!
