As we kick off the 2015 wedding season we are excited to talk about some of the hot wedding trends in Florida this year. I am sure we can all relate to attending some weddings where we are given a favor in which we either throw away or even forget to take home. As brides and grooms continue the trend of personalization and uniqueness we fall upon the ingenious idea of, edible wedding favors. Yes, you can eat that once forgettable gift and enjoy after all the wedding fun is over.  Brides and grooms are taking this opportunity to reveal their individualism through their favorite treats.

With kisses sweeter than honey and knowing they are ‘meant to be’ Florida couples are reaching out to their local honey farms to jar their own honey with a personalized note to send home with their family and friends. Bee-Haven Honey, is a family owned and operated Central Florida honey farm that allows couples a variety of honey to choose from when jarring with love. For convenience this local treasure is open 24 hours to purchase out front at their “Honey Shed” or in bulk with easy online purchasing available. Nothing is sweeter than saying thank you with a jar of honey!

If your couple is into baked goods then we highly suggest taking a look at the works of The Pastry Studio in Daytona Beach, FL for their take on custom sugar cookies and macaroons. The Pastry Studio is not only a local favorite, but has been featured in many popular magazines such as ‘Brides’, ‘Wedding’, and ‘Occasions Bridal Magazine’. The Pastry Studio’s popularity does not end there they have also been featured on TV shows such as Oprah, HGTV, and MTV. The Pastry Studio is most known for their couture wedding cakes and luxury special event cakes and once you see their work you will see why many seek after this local shop.

We know that many of our couples today are health conscious that is why we adore the simplicity of using our states locally grown fruit uniquely as wedding favors. Whether it is oranges paired with a unique label or bags of strawberries adorn with thank you notes, each are yummy and perfect for that Florida spring or summer wedding. Lastly, our couples that do not share a sweet tooth but rather a palette for spirits, ‘Personal Wine’ has just the treat by personalizing mini wine bottle labels for your guest to enjoy even after the reception is over. So it seems to be the sky is the limit to the edible favors conglomerate. Overall, these unique Florida favors are an exciting way for couples to communicate who they are as a pair and leave their guests with a lasting impression they can truly indulge in.

I had the opportunity to visit Hayden Olivia Bridal and Bridal Suite Charlotte.  Kate, one of the amazing and talented consultants, gave me a tour of both spaces and I could not wait to share my experience with all of you!

Hayden Olivia Bridal is a chic bridal boutique located in the heart of Uptown Charlotte, NC. I was captivated from the moment that I stepped off of the little elevator into the beautiful boutique. From the charming exposed brick walls to the gorgeous floor to ceiling blue silk drapes, I knew I was going to love this place. The couture gown and accessory selection is stunning and Hayden Olivia offers some of the most unique gowns from designers including (but not limited to) Hayley Paige, Modern Trousseau, Ines Di Santo, Monique Lhuillier-Bliss and Jim Hjelm. I am swooning over the lovely 2015 collections.

Spotlight: I learned that the Modern Trousseau gowns can be personalized to the brides desires. I {l o v e} that these gowns can be customized—from design elements to couture fit! These gowns are handcrafted in the USA with the most luxurious Italian silks, French laces and intricate beading and detailing.
