Eye Candy Friday : v107 {white weddings with crystal accents}

Today's Eye Candy Friday is a bit different and brimming with the latest weddings trends and ideas. This past Monday, The Wedding Salon held their luxury show in Miami and they join us today highlighting some of the incredible trends that were seen at the show. The one trend that was seen throughout the event was the trend of white weddings with crystal accents. From Ana Paz’s all-white cakes, covered in Swarovski crystals, to the sky-high canopy covered in white feathers, white hydrangea and dripping with crystal, to Costa d’Este Beach Resort’s white masterpiece with fuchsia accents, The Wedding Salon showed that brides can never go wrong with an all-white wedding.

All-White Wedding Receptions with a Splash of Color and
Dripping Crystals, are the Hottest Trend for the Season Ahead

Billy Idol said it best with the classic “It’s a Nice Day for a White Wedding” and The Wedding Salon in Miami displayed this trend at its best, with magical all-white displays from Miami’s hottest designers. With splashes of color, crystal and feather accents, brides’ fantasy weddings came to life.

“White Weddings will never go out of style and will always be a classic statement for brides in any season. We were thrilled to see this timeless trend come to life at The Wedding Salon where Miami’s top names designed the ultimate in fantasy weddings. We look forward to seeing all the trends from The Wedding Salon come to life in the season ahead," says Wedding Salon Founder and renowned Celebrity Event Planner, Tatiana Byron.

Miami’s top celebrity event planners and designers including Trias Flowers, Torrellas Special Events, The Gansevoort Miami Beach and Costa d’Este Beach Resorts showed that brides will always look to embrace the classic beauty of an all-white wedding.  Trias Flowers looked to chandeliers as inspiration for their white & ivory reception table with staggering heights dripping in floating crystal and covered in all-white floral. The design team from The Gansevoort Miami Beach added a structural element to the all-white wedding by utilizing a mix of square and cylinder vases forming a sky-high centerpiece with white lilies as the focal point surrounded by a sea of candles. Costa d’Este Beach Resorts added a single fuchsia color accent to their all-white display with fuchsia orchids mixed into the sea of all white roses, while Torrellas Special Events added red as their accent to an all-white table.

Another key trend seen at The Wedding Salon was the use of crystals from Ana Paz’ Swarovski-covered cake to Panache Style’s canopy, dripping with crystals. Ana Paz looked to the trend of Swarovski-belted wedding gowns for her sky-high 6 foot cake with row after row of Swarovski belted crystals glimmering under the reception lighting. Panache Style incorporated the white trend with the crystal trend in their fantasy canopy with sky-high feathers above a sea of crystals raining over the bride and groom.

Other trends not to be missed include John Dunn’s form-fitting fishtailed gowns covered in sequins that wowed brides at The Wedding Salon’s fashion show and the churros for guests created by Miami’s favorite, Donut Divas. These trends reveal that a classic all-white look combined with a bride’s own personal touch from feathers and crystals, to candy bars and cannoli bars will be in style for years to come!
