Eco-Posh Events was recently featured in an article, “Traditions to Toss” by Maureen Sullivan in KC Weddings Magazine. The article, about wedding dos and don’ts, highlighted the executive planner for Eco-Posh Events, Erika Piquant. She shared an inside look about what traditions she is seeing diminish from weddings and what traditions are still going strong in today’s modern weddings.
One tradition that has been replaced is party favors. Piquant has noticed that brides want to do something more useful for their guests. Some modern favors she’s noticed through planning weddings are photo booths, charitable donations or giving something edible. Another tradition that was previously seen at every wedding would be the use of a head table for the newlyweds and the bridal party. In recent ceremonies, though, it seems that the head table is being done away with. Piquant has noticed that most brides are doing a Tuscan-style table, also known as a king’s table or captain’s table. This allows for the guests to sit on both sides of the table, and the wedding party members can dine with guests instead of being front and center of the celebration.
One aspect of modern weddings that has struck gold with brides is going green. Brides are starting to insist on sustainability as a part of their wedding. More and more people are becoming more environmentally aware, and it is starting to show in nuptial planning. Eco-Posh Events strives to help brides incorporate eco-friendly alternatives into their wedding while still fulfilling all of the bride’s visions of her special day.
