This year, a panel of experts and purveyours gathered at the St. Pucci Flagship Salon to inform select media and invited guests of wedding trends, themes and history. The panel included Pauline Parry of Good Gracious! Events, David Pressman of Pressman Events, designer Rani Totman of St. Pucci, Rrivre Davies of Rrivre Works, and Nelson Holdo of Black, Starr & Frost.
According to Pauline Parry, one of the new trends in weddings is that brides and grooms are taking on the expense of their weddings, allowing them to make it more reflective of their respective personalities. Additionally, cocktail weddings are on the rise, in which various, little stations are set up in separate rooms allowing for uninterrupted dancing, speeches, etc.
