When One "I Do" is simply not enough!

We LOVE love at Weddings InStyle, so what better way to celebrate the most romantic day of the year then to offer an all day private vow renewals for those looking to recommit their love to one and other. 

Marriage is an institution that now a days could use some renewing. Life sometimes gets in the way. People have these blowout weddings, but that doesn’t necessarily correlate with having a long marriage and maintaining it. A vow renewal can be a signifier to oneself and to the larger community that something has endured and that there is a commitment to keep it going. 

Good relationships never stop growing. Like fine wine, they get better with age.   No marriage is perfect. Many couples tend to think of marriage as a 50/50 proposition. Actually, the best relationships are 90/10. If you both will give 90% and take only 10%, you will have a formula likely to continue to bring both of you happiness for a lifetime.  

Whether you have been married a short time or 60 years we are offering a beautiful setting so that you could renew your vow and recommit your love for each other... InStyle!!!

2014 Weddings Trends to say I DO to!

While we love looking at trends like everyone else - trends are just trends in our opinion and just like fads they come and go. These are just a few that we thought you might consider saying "I do" to if you are looking for something whimsical and fun for your upcoming wedding!

Radiant Orchid

A colour and a name we will be hearing and seeing alot in 2014 as it has been named Pantone 2014 colour of the year. This blush shade of purple and pinkish hues is bound to create a dramatic impact in weddings this year. From flowers to dresses to lights and linens this is a colour we will surely be seeing alot of this coming year.

Monochrome & Mismatched Bridesmaids Dresses

Monochrome and mismatched bridesmaids dresses have been making their mark on the weddings scene for quite some time now.  
We LOVE this trend because it adds more color and versatility to your entourage if you have one. Maybe pepto bismol pink isn't everyone's thing, but various shades of blush might work.  Check out some other styles here

Low Back Wedding Gowns
The Wedding Dress industry is bringing "Sexy Back" this year with the dramatic backless wedding gown. 

Unplugged Weddings
We think that this is a trend that should stay around long after 2014 is done with. The main reason we love this idea is that you avoid your guests being captured in the background of your photographers shots during the ceremony, first dance, cake cutting and other photo worthy moments. We've seen it SO many times and this idea takes care of it! It also allows your guests to be fully present and enjoy all the hard work that you've put into your special day. 

Pinterest is really changing the game for the wedding industry. Couples in 2014 are really strong about bringing their style into the wedding so people recognize whose wedding they're at.

We love it because we know what people want. It's how they live, how they decorate their home. They want their wedding to be a reflection of their lives. If you don't have a Pinterest account get one! It will make your planning process alot easier and will keep things organized for all to see. Happy Pinning!

As always - daily excitement happens over on Facebook. Join us there!
