From neutral tones to intimate gatherings, these ideas are sure to spark inspiration and set your wedding apart from the crowd.
Intimate Weddings Are Here To Stay
The Oregon wedding scene is taking bold steps into new territory. With elopements and micro weddings, smaller weddings allow couples to celebrate their love while still staying safe during the Covid-19 pandemic. Not only that, but Karalyn Demarest from Oregon Garden Resort points out, “Elopements also mean smaller weddings and more affordable, a win-win!” Micro weddings also keep the guest list smaller than a traditional wedding, making it safer and less expensive. Consider a local wedding for the spring season as well. As Karalyn notes, “Less travel for you and your guests, plus you get to support small businesses that have been affected by the pandemic.”
BOLD, MINIMALIST BRIDAL STYLE
Yvonne Fyne-Nsofor with O-Mara predicts that brides will come out of this year full of uncertainty with bold and intentional looks. She says, “To achieve this they'll be taking on a more minimalistic approach to their individual style to be a guaranteed knockout."
