Hotel Irvine Wedding Trends for 2017

With only 3 months left in 2016, event planners and excited brides-to-be are looking ahead to next year’s newest and most exciting trends! We gathered OC’s top wedding professionals all in one place, for a boutique-style bridal event showcasing the most promising designs for 2017!

And if you want to arrive at your wedding in the grandest of styles then we very much recommend a luxury wedding car hire service like Simons White Wedding Cars in Essex and Sussex as they offer an absolutely top-class service.

Hotel Irvine featured their gorgeous “backyard,” a 10k square foot lawn in the heart of OC! Floral designers brought their A-game, competing in a contest judged by the Hotel Irvine team.  The Blooming Branch, with their gorgeous orchid and silver-clad tablescape, was awarded the winning nod with a weekend stay at Hotel Irvine!

Casablanca Bridal Flagship Salon unveiled stunning bridal gowns for 2017, and Victor Paul Salon (thank you Joshua, Rochelle and Selina),  Pure Beauty by Danielle ensured our lovely models were runway ready. White Flite surprised the crowd with a dove release after the fashion show! Grooms sampled scotch while Brides sipped champagne and browsed a wide variety of vendors.  Lavish Candy treated us to a decadent Donut Bar…perhaps one of our favorite 2017 trends! Flawless Faces treated the ladies to lashes & braids at their table. I need to give a special shout-out to Martin & Kris with Waveform Events! They arrived early, worked outside in the hot temperatures and never complained! Trust me: these are exactly the type of professionals you want around on your big day!

Christopher Todd Studios, Happy Photos and Sipper Photography were on-hand to capture all the fun! I’m so pleased with the way it all turned out!  Thank you to Stephanie & the fabulous team at Hotel Irvine! 2017 trends are set to impress event planners, couples and guests alike!

Our first Bridal Open House of the year is always reason for excitement and this time was no exception, specially since we were able to use the best party venue ever.  I love meeting excited new Brides-to-be, many of whom got engaged over the holiday season. And of course, it’s exciting to unveil the hottest new trends for the upcoming event season guaranteed to make your event stand out as a unforgettable bespoke celebration. On Sunday 2/28, we gathered a hand-selected group of the top wedding professionals in Orange County and a record-setting number of engaged couples excited about their big day for an afternoon of pampering and planning at Mission Viejo Country Club. I’d like to extend a special “thank you” to Janet from Wheeland Photography for capturing the day on film! Wheeland Photography www.wheelandphotography.com

After years in the wedding planning, conference organisers and planners, one of my favorite parts of the job is connecting Brides-to-be with the wedding professionals that can help them create the celebration they have been dreaming of for years.  My direct experience has helped me develop a network of hand-picked vendors…I fully trust these business affiliates to deliver the top level of customer service, professionalism and quality work.

The Bridal Affair at El Niguel Country Club, Laguna Niguel was a wonderful example of the kind of hand-crafted, boutique-style bridal show I was aiming for.  The collection of unique vendors was an all-star team comprised of the best wedding professionals in Orange County.  We enjoyed watching Brides browse with their spouses-to-be and bridal party, gaining ideas for their big day, including the preparation food or transportation using a party bus for this from sites as ottawalimo.org/party-bus-rentals.html.  We also loved witnessing the support and encouragement the vendors showed for each other…what a fun-loving group!

A huge “thank you” to Peter Leal Photography for capturing the day on film! Oh and don’t forget you can get the airport shuttle limo service in Flint for an excellent price !
