Let us walk you through a few of this season’s top 2021 wedding trends! Cheers!
Trend: Balloon Installations
“Ultra modern boho chic! Industrial mesh metal backdrops and luxurious custom color balloons are now taking over the bridal industry and have quickly become a wedding staple!

Trend: Grand Exits
“Something we’ve been doing a lot of this last year is grand exits using our cold-spark, sparkular machines. The great thing about this style is that we have the ability to have the effect go multiple times. This gives the photographer practice shots ahead of time and ample opportunity to capture the perfect image.”

Trend: Lighting Effects
“I’m a firm believer that lighting affects the mood and experience of your event. Event lighting can enhance your venue and make your florals pop. Pinspotting the cake, bars and lounge areas creates a romantic restaurant-like feel allowing you to turn down the house lights and make your guests comfortable.”

Trend: Custom Playlists
“Playlists have always been popular. Ever since cassette tapes, we’ve been labeling, ‘Rad Mix’ on the front and making our own compilations. Whether it be for working out or even cleaning the house, we can make a playlist for anything, and everything really should have its own soundtrack! With services such as Spotify, you can customize your own soundtrack for whatever you’d like. These days couples are finding Spotify to be a perfect tool to build playlists for various parts of their wedding week such as getting ready, cocktail hour or even party songs. As a DJ, it’s always great seeing exactly what people listen to to give me a good idea on what to include as I mix music throughout their reception.”

Trend: Mobile Bars
“Modern couples are prioritizing the guest experience when planning their weddings. Mobile bars provide a next level alternative to a standard bar. These unique bars provide top tier service, high end chilling and tap capabilities with an interactive experience that guests love sharing and photographing. Our bars are always the most talked about and memorable experience at any wedding or event.”
