Wedding Catering Trends for 2013

What’s the best part about this year’s wedding catering trends?  There is no need to learn how to spell the word hors d’oeuvres!  Wedding savories are expected to take an elegant turn for 2013 as catering experts expect receptions to see plated dinners with elaborate formal settings!  Say bye-bye to buffet style and farewell to finger foods!  It’s time to polish up the silver and try to recall where exactly that tiny fork goes!

What wedding catering trends are couples-to-be going to be dishing up in 2013?
Get out your palette’s passport because wedding catering is going back to the couple’s roots!  Culinary creations that give a nod to the couples heritage will be huge at receptions and rehearsal dinners!  Expecting picky guests at your reception?  Instead of going insanely international, try incorporating a few appetizers that your ancestors would adore!

One of the most anticipated aspects (to some) of attending a wedding reception is definitely the booze.  2013′s wedding adult beverage trends are going to be way more exciting than the sound of the champagne cork popping!  Trendy couples are going coo-coo for craft cocktails this year!  No more boring beverages, brides-and-grooms-to-be are going all out with artisanal concoctions created by master mixologists scouted from the hippest of nightlife hangouts.  Expect to see signature cocktails in honor of the bride and groom sporting cute names that add personal touches to their libations!  Wedding cater trends are even working their way into normally traditional aspects of a wedding — the toast!  Infused champagne bars are putting a 2013 twist on a wedding reception classic by infusing exotic additives like lavender and elderflower into the bubbly!

Wedding Floral Trends for 2013

As we bloom into 2013, top wedding designers have predicted that THE flower choice among brides this year will be the peony!  Available in a wide range of color options, the peony happens to be my favorite flower!

One floral wedding trend for 2013 that I am not so sure about is cascading bouquets!  Hugely popular in the 80′s, cascading bouquets are set to make a comeback this year.  Even Princess Diana carried a cascading bouquet on her big day!  While the cascading bouquet may be good enough for royalty, it’s just not my absolute favorite look.

Table arrangements seem to have taken a turn for the green!  While over-the-top, floral monstrosities seemed to be all the rage this year, 2013′s table-top decor makes a move to a more subtle, yet interesting look with floral garland!  Comprised mainly from greenery, garland can also be made using a bride’s favorite blooms!

What do you think about the top wedding trends of 2013?  Let us hear what you have to say on Mojuba’s Facebook page!  Tomorrow we’ll clue you in to the top paper and invitation trends for the new year!

Wedding Bells and Bunnies

Playboy’s founder Hugh Hefner married his 26 year old girlfriend Crystal Harris on New Year’s Eve at an intimate ceremony held at the mogul’s famous Playboy Mansion.  Hefner and Harris finally tied the knot even after the much younger Harris called off their plans to wed in 2011!  Second time is a charm I guess!

The now Queen of Playboy donned this gorgeous pink mermaid wedding dress by designer Romona Keveza.  This gown is the original gown purchased for Hugh Hefner and Crystal Harris’s first attempt at wedded bliss in 2011  Let’s hope the couple isn’t superstitious!  Although her dress was original, the bling was not!  Harris sold her first engagement ring from Hefner in an auction after she ditched him in 2011!

I bet Crystal could have used a wedding day emergency kit to get her through her big day!  Congrats to the happy couple and a happy new year to you all from the Mojuba team!
