Wedding Dress

The great thing about this hue is that a large amount of it will not overwhelm you or your event.  This great dress is a perfect example of how the color will work seamlessly into your plans by adding something different, without stealing the show.

Bouquet 

Mint bouquets work with the neutral white of a wedding gown and is a color lends itself to plants with texture.  If you’re looking for a little punch but don’t want bright and loud colors, a mint bouquet is a perfect way to add that pizzazz to your day.

Cake

Think of mint not only as a color but as a flavor.  A mint themed cake, embodied both inside with flavor and outside with color will add a cute and whimsical twist to your wedding day.

Wedding Cake Ideas…Bigger is Not Always Better

It seems at one point in time, every girl has dreamed of a huge fantastic wedding to their Prince Charming.  The ladies here at Glen Eagle share your sentiments in this and would like to help you implement a wedding as close to a fairy tale as we can.  If fiscal realities are hindering your quest for the prefect wedding, here’s an idea that can help you curb wedding-debt later on-  small wedding cakes!  That’s right ladies, an area where you can save money while still provide big bang is in the wedding cake department.  New trends have given birth to smaller cakes packed with or surrounded by big, intricate design.

In true fashion to prove that bigger is not always better, the wedding industry has set a trend of constructing smaller more intimate cakes with detailed designs catered to each individual bride.  If you’re contemplating a small wedding with just your closest family and and friends, these types of cakes are perfect as they will pragmatically feed all your guests with no room for waste and more room for other necessities in your budget.

That wallop of impression can also be translated into your surrounding designs.  Rather than incorporate those details into your cake, you can coordinate it into your venue design to set off your cake.  For those with more simplistic tastes in cake, you can set off any cake with the correct accessories and cake table design.

The Ombre Trend In Floral Arrangements

It’s clear to see that the ombre trend has made a name for itself in the fashion world over the past year. From hair to clothing to interior design and even nails, this trend appears to be taking over. Unsurprisingly, another area that the ombre is now popping up is in floral arrangements!

For those of you who have yet to learn about this trend, the ombre is characterized as a simple progression of colors in the same color family; most often a fade from lighter shades of a color to darker shades. This effect gives off an eye-catching watercolor feel.

When deciding on flower arrangements for your wedding or quinceanera, consider the following various uses of floral ombres:

Showcase the ombre with a stunning centerpiece arrangement.
