Two 2016 Wedding Trends to Experience at Cedar Pond Farms

 

One wedding trend is the same year after year–weddings are much more frequent in the warmer seasons. There are trends that carry over time, but each year there’s a little twist in what wedding trends are hot. While outdoor weddings have been growing in popularity over the years, we were excited to discover that the 2016 wedding trends are a perfect match for an outdoor wedding at Cedar Pond Farms.

 

Local Flowers

Both in and out of weddings, we’ve seen the local movement sweep through the area of food (like the farm-to-table concept). This same movement has picked up momentum in the area of wedding bouquets and arrangements. Couples are opting for flowers and greenery that are in season where the ceremony will be held. To convey the natural look, bouquets are much more free form, featuring multiple colors and even a variety of bloom stages (from buds to partially closed blooms to wide-open blooms). Table arrangements are a little on the wild side too (and are different from one table to the next), comprising blooming branches, ferns, lavender strands. One of the great things about having your wedding here is that we allow you to use anything in bloom on the property…so you can embrace farm-to-table life with your decor.

 

Rustic Chic Settings

Gone are the days of predictable wedding settings and boring banquet-style receptions. Couples want to embrace family and friends in a more homelike setting, but still want the pizzazz of unique decor. This year is all about mixing up styles that wouldn’t normally go together, such as a farm wedding with a glamorous chandelier (like you’ll find under our huge oak tree). For the reception, you can use the quaint barn that has some surprising modern updates to get the best of both worlds. In fact, Cedar Pond Farms offers over fifteen venues on the farm, inside and out, for your wedding and reception. If that’s not enough, we’re always looking for ways to meet your wedding needs, whether that’s part of the 2016 wedding trends or just part of your dream wedding.
