Even as far away as Fort Wayne and northeast Indiana, the Royal Wedding is the topic of much conversation - the ceremony, the invitations, the decor, reception favors, and a Royal Air Force flyover. There's even a T-Mobile spot of how the wedding party might "dance" down the aisle at Westminster Abbey.
But doesn't every bride want to, and deserve to feel like royalty on her wedding day? The Royal Wedding is inspiring brides all over the world this spring; here in Fort Wayne, we're also seeing wedding decor/receptions falling into a few specific categories: "green" — very earthy and natural; or bling, bling and more bling. And there's a definite modern contemporary look that's very appealing to some brides - a clean sophistication reflected in hot color combinations and defined modern spaces at the reception. Elegance and romance will always be in style (click here to view photos of a recent reception in northeast Indiana).
With many Fort Wayne area brides-to-be securing dates and reception locales for 2012-2013, there's still time to decide on the decor and theme for your big event. What's in style and a hot trend today may not be the same a year from now. One recent reception site at the World War II Victory Museum in Auburn, IN included a clubby cocktail/lounge area, dramatic tables and chairs draped in black-on-black linens, a separate buffet and eating area for the kids, a dessert station, and floor-to-ceiling elegance for a reception site with high ceilings (view album by clicking here). Our downtown Fort Wayne showroom changes frequently, so be sure to stop in A Party Apart and see what's hot and what's current to help you with ideas for how to set the stage to set YOUR event apart - and be fitting for royalty!
