Our Top 5 Trends from the Spring/Summer 2018 Issue
The stats are in. These beautiful wedding details are on trend with the results of our 2017 Arkansas Wedding Report — and we’re loving them all.
Arkansas’ jewelers are some of the finest in the country.
Not only do they have exquisite pieces, but they treat their brides and grooms like family.
This might be why 41 percent of Arkansas brides said they purchased or were gifted fine jewelry to wear on their wedding day.
NEW NO. 1 COLOR
More brides described their wedding color as “white/ivory” than any other color. This was a big shift to a more classic, traditional hue than when “pink/blush” was the No. 1 wedding color in 2015. Flip through our real weddings section to see just how many brides chose white/ivory.
SOMETHING TO SAVOR
Thirty-six percent of brides said they chose their caterer after being referred by a friend. Well, count us as your friend, and look inside our digital edition to discover the state’s best caterers and bakeries from each region.
Our survey revealed that 62 percent of brides used rental services (tents, lighting, etc.) to create their dream weddings. Throughout this issue, you’ll spot unique and versatile rentals, like these beautiful lounge rentals from Hank’s Event Rentals.
DRESSED IN TRADITION
It’s still more popular to have bridesmaids match (59 percent) versus letting bridesmaids choose their own dresses (13 percent). We’re still loving that tradition thanks to the options Arkansas’ bridal boutiques are carrying, like these dresses from Tesori.
